Geneva-on-the-Lake bed and breakfast description

VERY IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE: Please know that this is a Large Inn able to accommodate Couples, Business Guest's, Golfer's, Fishermen and Small Families. As this is a Bed & Breakfast, Owner will consider Rental of Complete Use of the Inn at a Small Discount depending upon Season. Our Signature Package is the Couples Like to Wine....(see or ask Innkeeper for details). Step back into time over 100 years and experience the beauty of the late 1800’s in this Lovely BED & BREAKFAST INN located directly on the Strip just across the street from Lake Erie in the First Resort Village in Ohio known as Geneva-On-The-Lake. Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the Inn has been restored by the owner, Jerry Busch, to its nearly original state, including all original woodwork, yet offers modern conveniences such as heat, air-conditioning, gas fireplaces, and Color Cable Television in every room. Steeped in tradition, our Guests may enjoy the cozy, laid back, elegantly functional atmosphere while sitting on white wicker cushioned chairs & rockers or porch swing on our wrap-around front porch. Take in the star-filled nights, watch the magnificent Lake Erie Sunsets, or take a cool swim at our beautiful State Park Beach. Sip a cold beverage, or your favorite Wine from one of our many local Wineries. Who knows, you may even be entertained on the porch by our resident musician, Jerry (Greg, too!), overlooking Lake Erie (across the street). A large parking area is available for your boat, or you may wish to dock at our beautiful State Park Marina -Just tell Dean that Jerry & Lu sent You!
As the morning begins, Bed & Breakfast Guests may enjoy in the parlor, or on the wrap-around front porch, a homemade hot baked breakfast entrée & meats served with fresh fruit, home-baked breads and/or muffins, juices, coffee & teas. As the day moves forward, guests may enjoy a quiet walk to the State Park Marina or a ride through the County to observe the many Historic Covered Bridges and Antique Shops in which Ashtabula County is so famed. If driving is not your forte, you may wish to take a tour of the many local Wineries and let Ashtabula County Winery Transportation do the driving. If your desire is just lounging around on the front porch, or in front of a warm fire in the parlor or sitting areas, a good book always suits the day. The Inn Keepers, at your request, may arrange for Dinner Reservations and/or Winery Tours (see 'Inn Specials'). Oh, and don't forget to wind down your afternoon or evening while enjoying one of Lu's homemade brownies, Aunt Teresa's Pumpkin Bread, or Aunt Sharon's Lazy Dazy Oatmeal Cake!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1990

              About the owner: Innkeepers Jerry & LuAnn Busch purchased and restored this beautiful property in 1990. The Inn opened it's doors in 2003. Jerry & LuAnn have one daughter, Lyndsey, married to Tom, and has 4-children...Marcus, Makaila, Lincoln and Bay! They live 4-miles from the Inn, so see Bopa and Mamma often. Jerry & I also own and operate since 2002 a large agency providing Personal Care and Work Shop services to persons with Developmental Disabilities.

              Why the Owner Chose Geneva-on-the-Lake:
              This property was the last property in the world which LuAnn desired to purchase, yet Jerry had stars in his eyes just itching to get his hammer & nails on this property. Twenty-Four years later Jerry's vision has come true, and LuAnn has nested. With living directly on the strip, LuAnn & Jerry feel as though they are on vacation 'year round'. If you are really lucky, you may enjoy hearing Jerry perform a concert on the wrap-around front porch!

              The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
              The unique benefits of owning and sharing our Inn with guests is the location and intimacy of the Inn. Our property is located directly on the strip across from Lake Erie and within walking distance of all the establishments Geneva on the Lake has to offer...Not including living within a 10-mile radius of Restaurants, Wineries, Covered Bridges, Antique Shops and Golf Courses.
