Shoreside Cottage: Lakefront Charm for Your Vacation

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Shoreside Cottage is a renovated cottage, spacious, charming, and fully furnished for your enjoyment. It can accomodate sleeping 10 adults. Thanks to all our guests who have helped make our cottage a success. We appreciate all of your repeat business!

We are situated in the heart of Mapleton Beach, a quiet, private neighborhood, which has been occupied by families, both seasonally and year-round, for decades. Local attractions on the "Strip" are only a block away. Panoramic lakefront views are breathtaking.

Our cottage is made up of two floors. The first floor has an updated fully-equipped kitchen with new appliances and a small table and chairs for coffee in the morning. The large living room includes digital cable TV and DVD player, and comfortable overstuffed furniture. In addition, there is a comfortable den (also with digital cable TV) and a queen-size sleeper sofa. A full bath is connected to the den, so this is convenient for those who may not like to climb steps. The laundry room provides a washer and dryer for your convenience, and we supply all the laundry products that you may need. One of the outstanding features on the first floor is the large, enclosed L-shaped porch overlooking the lake ,and providing dining space for at least 12 people. When the weather cools, the porch can be heated. What a great gathering place it is for families or groups any time of the day or evening!

The spacious, beadboarded stairway leads to the upstairs where you will find three bedrooms and another full bath. The front bedroom overlooks the lake and is furnished with a queen-size bed and a twin bed. The side bedroom has a closet and a queen-size bed whose window also looks out onto the lake to the east. The third bedroom is furnished with three twin beds, which could easily convert into a king-size combination with one additional twin bed.

All linens (sheets, blankets, comforters, towels, placemats, tablecloths) are provided for the bedrooms, baths, kitchen, and dining porch along with all paper and cleaning products.

You have many choices for relaxation at Shoreside. There is a sunning deck with picnic table, lawn chairs and grill, and a swing on the bank, which overlooks the lake. You could sun and swim at the private beach, or moor your jet ski or runabout near the beach and come up for a bite of lunch.

Geneva-on-the-Lake is an historic resort village which features miniature golf, waterslides, go-karts, shopping, karoake, many restaurants and a winery. Geneva State Park is minutes away, with the chance to swim at the large beach, boat and fish from its marina and hike and bike on its roads and pathways. The wider area of Ashtabula County is known for its many wineries, historic harbor district, quaint shops and antiquing opportunities.

We are confident that you will be thoroughly delighted with Shoreside Cottage, its amenities, furnishings and decor.

This is the 5 th year we have stayed at the charming house named Shoreside cottage. The location is just awesome and conveniently located in the center of Geneva on the Lake. It's large and has a lakefront deck . There are 3 large bedrooms and plenty of lounging conversation areas.

The downside is that it is getting a bit dated and needs some cosmetic updates.

There are plenty of dishes, linens, etc.. available.

The owners are very accommodating and always furnish the place with seasonal decorations, and a welcome basket of snacks.

Lots of space and all the amenities.

  • 4 of 5

The house was large and comfortable. Enjoyed a weekend stay to attend a local event. Everything we needed was available in the house The only thing missing was the ability to watch the Indians game on TV. That may have been my fault. So we walked to the strip and found a place that had the game on.
