About the property

This charming one-story cottage in the heart of Lakeside, the Chautauqua on lake Erie, has been completely updated to comfortably accomodate four to six people.

Located conveniently near Hoover Auditorium, South Auditorium, Bradley Temple, and Rhein Center for the Arts, a short walk to the waterfront park, beach, shops, and restaurants; and one block from the new Grindley Aquatic and Wellness Center!

Check the website for Lakeside Ohio for detailed information about the "Chautauqua on Lake Erie" and all it has to offer the vacationer; you will be amazed.

Please be aware that this is a gated vacation resort area which requires daily/weekly gate fees (summer months only) which are not included in the cottage rental price.

As with most cottages in Lakeside, rentals are for one week minimum during the Lakeside Chautauqua Season from mid-June through Labor Day. Occasional exceptions are made depending on demand. Partial weeks or long weekends are normally available only in the off-season (before Memorial Day and after Labor Day).

Comfort and location at Lakeside

  • 5 of 5

Our extended weekend involved the travel of two couples. The bedrooms each provided the comfort of queen beds (not a typical Lakeside feature) and each was served by their own separate bathroom. The third bedroom was not utilized. The kitchen was very well equipped and the dining area spacious. Off the dining area was located the wonderful sun porch.All windows (throughout, including the porch) opened easily and allowed wonderful breezes to flow though. The property was very, very clean and afforded a wonderful Lakeside experience.

As always, very clean & accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

I let Dave know there was a bit of an ant problem and the a/c quit working in one of the bedrooms. Dave was kind enough to come over the very next day and spray the outside. Unfortunately (and understandably) he couldn't replace the a/c as we were leaving on Sat. But I certainly appreciate his prompt attention & concern. I really love this cottage! But, as I mentioned to Dave, it would be nice to have a clothesline to hang wet suits & towels. I plan on coming back next year! 😃?

Wonderful family time in a lovely Lakeside cottage !

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Patti are such gracious hosts - they called to make sure we had arrived OK and were comfortable in their cottage. My wife, I, and our 3 adult children and a spouse found the cottage to be modern, appliances up to date, and very well cared for. We had great family time being out and about during the day and played games and watch some movies in the evening plus various presentations at the Hoover Auditorium. The cottage is charmingly decorate and you can't help to fall in love with it - we loved the nautical theme throughout the house. The kitchen was perfect for preparing meals, the dinning room for eating, and we loved the sun room for hanging together in the evening. Thanks so much for a wonderful time. Look foward to hopefully returning next year :)

What a nice cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in this rental. It was a great location and very spacious. The cottage was very well supplied and almost every consideration was taken. The owners obviously love the house and take very good care of it and keep it looking very appealing. We would definitely stay there again.
