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.

We rent only by the week in the summer season (Memorial Day to Labor Day), but are

open to all other time periods during the rest of the year.

Perfect! Owner was quite thoughtful in providing everything we needed down to the complimentary basket in the frig. The Owner was very gracious and flexible when we had to change the date. In spite of the early March cold, we packed a picnic lunch and took a Covered Bridge Road Trip.

Perfect & Thoughtful Elements of Home

  • 5 of 5

This was out first time at this property and we LOVED it! All the amenities of home which we thought was just so nice! Plenty of everything! (paper products, beach towels etc.) There was so much room and everything was very clean. If you have stayed at other places at GOTL u will appreciate this: we could even stand up straight in the shower! :) The rooms upstairs were beautifully decorated and put together to make the most of all the space. It was a cool wkend so we did not need the window a/c units. The sleeper sofa downstairs worked perfectly for one of the gals that cannot do stairs. Should mention we did go up to the lake before peak season. Many of the places were not open yet FYI but plenty to find a bite to eat. The Winery Tour was a blast! Call to reserve your spots early bc they book up quickly! The swing was our favorite part of the house :) we all watched the sunset each night. Thank you so very much to the owners for making this home so wonderful! You have a gem!! anthr FYI if the dates you are looking for are open for this rental BOOK IT. The secret is out! & everyone knows the beauty and comfort in this place. Thanks again!

Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I loved this winter retreat -- nice home on the bank of Lake Erie. You just could not ask for a better location and view of the Lake. The house is large and would accomodate lots of people. All the comforts of home are provided -- and the housewares, linens, etc. are all very lovely. Lots of areas in the house to spend time for different activities. Just a nice place and a great location.

Absolutely fantastic!!!! The owners are gracious and kind. The cottage was more than a home away from home. Even though it was in the 60's we enjoyed the grill, swing and beach. The L-shaped porch is to die for!! We will return...there is no doubt.
