Awesome and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend here with our aging parents and had a wonderful time! The main house was perfect with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and no steps. This was our 2nd year in a row to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our time together and visiting the wineries! Jen is very helpful and quick to answer a text! We plan on returning next summer, God willing!

We stayed in the Main House and Game room for the weekend for my husband's 40th Birthday. We could not have asked for anything better. The Main House is gorgeous with plenty of room and has everything you need. We were able to cook our meals, have a fire outside, take a walk through the woods and so much more. We really enjoyed the privacy. It felt as if you were entering a hidden gem as your drove back into the property. The Game Room was a huge hit as well with the pool table, card table and pinball machine. Thanks again and we hope to make this an annual celebration!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

The main house and the game room were nicer than the pictures! The house and the property were awesome. The perfect place to stay when going fishing on Lake Erie. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Our family stayed at The Main House during a swimming championship meet at the Spire Institute. Very convent to/from Spire. The house was extremely clean, the grounds were neatly landscaped. We all relaxed and enjoyed the fire pit and outdoor games. Never missed anything! The house and outside areas provided great R/R for our weary swim family. The owner was receptive and helpful to all the questions I had.

Amazing Property for a perfect wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had our wedding at Rustic River. We rented all three rentals (main house, game room and pond cottage) for five days. Our Parents, grandparents and close friends stayed with us on the property. They all enjoyed their stay. We could not have asked for a more perfect weekend. Rustic River, and the local vendors referred to us by Jen (the property owner), exceeded our highest expectations. In our planning process, we stayed three times at the property and thoroughly enjoyed every visit. The property owners are accomodating, friendly and a pleasure to work with. We would recommend (and have been) Rustic River for nearly every occasion. The entire property has always been well maintained, clean and just what we needed, everytime we've visited. We plan on making many return trips to Rustic River. Thank you!
