Akron house description

This beautifully remodeled lake-view home with a nautical theme, adjacent to the Historic Portage Lakes, is perfect for that special Romantic Getaway - Fishing Trip - Peaceful Relaxation Vacation or Out-Of-Town Guests.

The Nautical House is owned and managed by Roy Baine, owner of Baine's Pier 619 Pontoon Boat Rentals, and located directly behind Pier 619, and Mr. Baine's residence.

The 2-story home has 1 and 1/2 baths and 3 bedrooms to comfortably sleep 6. A full kitchen, dining room and living room. Pontoon boats, kayaks, and a small fishing boat are also available to rent from Pier 619.

Historic Dietz's Landing restaurant is within a very short walking distance. The Upper Deck bar and grill, a one-time stage coach depot, is right across the lake. Also within a short distance are Turkeyfoot golf course, farmers markets, grocery stores and a mall.

BOATING & FISHING: For the fisherman, Portage Lakes offers a wide variety of exciting freshwater fishing including largemouth bass, black and white crappie, bluegill, redear sunfish, pumpkinseed, warmouth sunfish, yellow perch, channel catfish, bullhead, white sucker, and carp. Crappie and bass fishing is particularly productive during April, May, and June; bluegill and catfish angling during the summer. Ice fishing for bluegill and crappie is also very popular in the Portage Lakes. Bass fishing tournaments are held throughout the Spring and Fall.


ATTRACTIONS: WGC-Bridgestone Invitational World Series of Golf - Firestone Country Club, Football Hall of Fame,
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum, Cleveland Horseshoe Casino, Hard Rock Rocksino, Thistledown Racino and Race Track, Akron Inventors Museum, Cedar Point Amusement Park, and Sugarcreek and Walnut Creek Amish communities are just a few of the attractions from Cleveland to Canton and in between. Also less than an hours drive to the Cleveland Browns and Indians stadiums and the Cavs arena.

Just a 10 minute drive to the University of Akron, known the world over for their research in polymer science, and EJ Thomas Preforming Arts Hall.
