About Andy and Lisa Birrell
My family has been vacationing in Geneva-on-the-Lakes since the early 50's. We started out at The Zimmerman cottages for many years and then when I was about 12 we bought next door at Poplar Breeze Cottages. When I finished college, I would look along the lake and make a list of homes that had potential and when this home came available, my parents bought it. We have had so many fond memories and great adventures here at the lake and hope that others will create their own, ones that will last a lifetime as well.
Andy and Lisa Birrell purchased this House in 1987
Why Andy and Lisa Birrell chose Geneva-on-the-Lake
We realized the potential this home had when we bought it; it is located on three lots, it is situated about 30 feet above Lake Erie and is on a quiet street just beyond the Geneva-on-the-Lake mile long strip leaving us within walking distance of the many attractions. We have made many improvements throughout the years to make our home on the lake a very comfortable and enjoyable place to spend time with family and friends. We have several more projects in mind and will continue to work them in as the time allows.
What makes this House unique
A great front porch to watch passer-by's; a fabulous screened/glassed in sun room to relax and watch the activity on of the lake or watch the sun go down; several decks to choose from, one just outside the sun room and one down by the water; not to mention 100+ feet of lake front and a 60' finger pier that you can fish from. What else do you need when you are looking for peace and tranquility?
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Perfect place for a getaway!
This was our second time staying here for our girls getaway weekend and it didn't disappoint! The location is perfect...right on the water and walking distance to everything! We are looking forward to staying here again soon!
Our stay at Betty’s Beach House was great! The house is comfortable and you have everything you need for a few days stay. The rooms are big and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials you need (other than food, of course). The house is clean and very well maintained as is the property. You are close to the main strip so that you can walk down and enjoy what is happening, yet far enough away to have peace and quiet. We enjoyed sitting on the back deck listening to the waves come ashore – this sound also worked well at night as we were able to keep the windows open. So peaceful. We highly recommend staying at Betty’s Beach House.
This property is the perfect location for a family vacation! We are a family with three children 6,6, and 2. It was perfect to be so close to the strip and the community playground- easy walking but really no noise for sleeping. The house is great- nice back deck for eating outside. The stairs are easily gated if you have a little one that isn't allowed to go upstairs without help. The owners seemed to go out of their way to provide all the basics on arrival- toilet paper, hand soap, tissues etc. The place was clean and lovely. We had no issues and did not need to communicate with the owners during our stay. Leading up to our stay and through the check-in process the owner, Lisa was always quick to respond. Thank you Lisa!
A perfect week
Another amazing week at GOTL. This home has everything you need. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a gas grill on the deck. If you don’t want to cook, you are a short walk to bars and resteraunts. The home is on the Lake so you have your own little piece of heaven. Thank you so much for another wonderful week with my family
Everything was wonderful about this house rental. The pictures really reflect the property exactly. The one flaw is that there is no AC on the first floor. The rooms each have AC units. The first floor gets pretty uncomfortable on a hot muggy day. It is a short walk from the strip, but far away enough that the noise doesn't carry . The surrounding properties are blocked by foliage so you feel like you really have your own place. Kitchen is fully equiped for cooking. detailed directions are posted around the house for any question you might have and the owners respond very quickly to questions.
Very nice house on the lake.
Spacious, well-maintained house on the lake. Fully stocked kitchen, easy check-in/check-out process and wonderful views of the lake. Situated nicely away from the strip, but close enough to walk. Enjoyable experience, would stay at Betty's Beach House again.
This stately lakefront home is situated on a large, beautiful lot which sits about 30 feet above Lake Erie. There are several levels of decks from which you may relax and enjoy being on the water or take in waterfront activities along the beach. We are located in a quiet residential area at the furthest end of the strip. You can easily walk to the many attractions or restaurants on the strip or just simply hang out and enjoy the tranquility and beauty of this lovely home. This is a non-smoking residence.
Geneva-on-the-lake Strip: This is a fun, tourist town that comes alive in the summer time. There are many cottages woven throughout the Geneva-on-the-Lake community along with The Lodge for resort lodging and a fabulous dining experience at the restaurant on sight; there is an RV park around the corner, and Geneva State Park & Marina about 1/4 mile from the beginning of the strip. These surroundings make for thriving tourist offerings such as restaurants, bars, charter fishing, water activities, shopping, night clubs, putt putt, a water park, and much more.
Geneva State Park & Marina: Where the lake meets the land; mature woods and a freshwater marsh create the landscape of Geneva State Park , an ideal environment for exploration and play. The marina features ample boat docks with 407 slips and transient docking. A six-lane boat ramp gives you plenty of room to head out into the wild blue yonder. Charter a fishing boat to experience the “walleye capital of the world.” Pick up bait and tackle supplies, fishing licenses, boat accessories, apparel and souvenirs or enjoy the convenience of the fish cleaning services. Full-service boat repair is also available, along with a fueling station and boat and trailer storage to safely store your pride and joy until the next season. Stop by the deli and canteen to stock up on picnic supplies or grab thirst quenching beverages, juicy hamburgers, ready-to-eat sandwiches, tasty snacks and ice cream after a day on the lake.
Seasonal Rental Period: Our season for rentals runs May 1 through October 31.
