About Karen Mathews
We have lived in this house for 39 years and raised our family here. We have enjoyed collecting antiques and done some woodworking as our hobbies.
Karen Mathews purchased this Cottage in 1976
Why Karen Mathews chose Mitiwanga
This house called to us as we first saw it. Each member of the family immediately chose just the right bedroom that was theirs for several years. It was just the right size at the right time. 5 bedrooms and 4 baths made it easier as the years changed. Having vanities in the bedrooms saved time for all. The kitchen has provided many excellent meals, but having a great cook made it even better. We have used the whole house as our family grew up and made many changes throughout the years.
What makes this Cottage unique
Visitors will enjoy our home from just reading a book from the large selection or putting puzzles together on a rainy day. The sandy beach and the breathtaking view of the sunset will be memories to enjoy for years to come. Our patio offer both gas and charcoal grills for those master chefs of the grill. And the washer and dryer will make your days a bit easier too.

Thank you to wonderful guests.
A nice place and good vacation area. The house is old and quirky, but fun. Has most everything.
Great location. Owner lives next door. Very helpful. The kitchen has everything you need, except dishwasher. The cooler weather made the stay pleasant. Some rooms have AC, but not all. Recommended.
Great space for a crowd
We had a great time, the cottage was a great meeting place.
More and more we have guests who use our home as a meeting place for family members that have moved many state away.
We strive to provide almost anything a guest might want or need.
These guests are just like this.
We certainly hope to see them again.
Charming... Clean and neat..perfect
We rented this cottage and found it to be the perfect home away from home. The park and beach were amazing...The cottage provided everything we needed to feel at home!!! We will be back!!!!
It is always comforting to see reviews like this. We try hard to make our home YOUR home for a short time. We hope the individuals will return with other parts of their families in the future. We thank you.
This is a great old-fashioned beach house. It was very clean and tidy with plenty of space. The owners live next door and are very kind and were always available for questions. They provide plenty of paper products, cleaning supplies, charcoal, towels and tennis raquets, etc. There is a patio with two grills, screened in porch and air conditioning units keep the house comfortable. A great place to spend a week.
It is always kind of our visitors to write a truly rewarding review. We have put in a great deal of time and effort to insure our guests feel that our home can be their home for a short time. We have tried to think of anything and everything to make their stay very comfortable. We can guess which guests have written this review and sincerely thank them for taking the time to honestly tell us what they think. We sincerely hope this family will again stay with us for the next short stay or even a week or more.
Property with character, nice location
We stayed at this property for a family reunion. The house has a great deal of character. It is an older property, but has charm. It is a good size, 5 bedrooms, and a pull out couch, as well as area for air mattresses. It has older bathrooms and some are small, but it does have sinks in multiple bedrooms which makes sharing bathrooms easier. There is no dishwasher, but plenty paper products were available. There are tennis and basketball courts handy and the beach is just one block down the road, with a great view of the sunset. It is close to Cedar Point. The owners are very friendly and work to make your stay enjoyable. My whole family commented on how well the house worked for our reunion.
Great family and we sure hope they come back again!! So glad you came!! Karen & Tom
Located between Toledo and Cleveland, this area is truly the heart of it all. Check out www.shoresandislands.com for a huge listing of many categories. Enjoy very fine dining at Chez Francois, in Vermilion, just 6 miles east. Rated one of the best in all of USA. One could write a book and still forget to include many features our local surrounding has to offer. By all means, visit the President Hayes Library in Fremont. Both Cleveland and Toledo have fine zoos. We have lived here, year round, for 40 plus years and enjoy the seasons changing. One of our favorites is bird watching in our own backyard. This area of Ohio is rated very high as a bird migratory flythrough, and we have logged over 40 kinds of birds. Most people from many states have used Mitiwanga as a reunion each year, as we have seen many toddlers grow up each year and now have their own children, as they too enjoy the relaxing calmness of the lake and our sandy beach.
Come stay with us for a 3 day weekend with the family, or a girls weekend away from home. We are available year round for your pleasure. Just check our calendar to see if your choice of dates is available. Your 3 day stay is just the beginning.. book us for a short or long stay.
