About the Property

Apartment, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Large Bath, (Sleeps 2-12)

Built in 2004, on the site of our family-owned summer “Cottage,” formerly known as Palmetto Lodge(1932-65), Palmetto Beach Rental is now being offered to other families to enjoy for their vacations on this beloved, 3-acre beachfront property. There is a creek on the west side.

The 1700 sq ft apartment is in the walkout lower level of this home with the upper level occupied by the owners. As shown in the photos, spectacular views of Lake Erie accompany the many sliding glass doors & windows in the apartment.
The “Garden Bedroom” with 2 double beds, has sliding glass doors opening on to a covered patio.
The King-bed “Lake Room” has a large window & sliding glass doors opening onto a covered patio.
The two “Bunk Rooms” each have 3 twin beds.

500 feet of Lakefront including 300 feet of an extensive sandy beach, on Lake Erie is unique to this area. The privacy created by the enclosing vegetation offers seclusion for your family's exclusive use. Escape the day-to-day routine of the world, and come to rest & renew by being so close to God’s magnificent creation. Endless opportunities to play together are afforded as noted in the numerous amenities & activities, along with plenty of space to be alone for life’s much needed quiet time. Partake of the unique beach / Lake ambience; savor glorious sunsets as generations of families before have done from anywhere on the property: the white antique iron bench, the extensive 12’ x 80’ deck, a small beach fire while swimming; AND gathering to sing “Day is Done” -- a “Cottage Blessing.”

Palmetto Beach Rental is on the “Lake Erie Ohio Coastal Tour” route along SR 531. Geneva State Park & Lodge with Marina and boat launching ramp is 2 miles west; charter fishing boats and guides are available at the marina. Access public bike & walking trails. Travel along 2 covered bridge driving tours with 17 bridges. Visit over 20 wineries on the “Vines and Wines Trail”. Stop at fresh produce stands along the roadsides to Amish Country. Motor the magnificent “Fall Foliage Tour”. Watch ore boats load and unload in historic Ashtabula Harbor. Participate in the “Geneva Area Grape JAMboree” (last weekend - September), AND of course visit the exciting and entertaining Geneva-on-the-Lake “Strip” with the center of activity only 1 mile to the west of Palmetto Beach Rental.

The RV resort at Indian Creek is only 100 yards to the east along State Route 531.

The nationally known Spire Institute is only 8 miles to the South, at the Interstate 90 Interchange. This provides excellent sports facilities such as an Olympic swimming pool and indoor track and soccer fields. A 'Must See'!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Keith & Karen are native Buckeyes as Karen grew up in Geneva, with 2 sisters who remained in the area; and Keith in Akron, with 2 brothers. Having met at Kent State University, they will celebrate their 50th Anniversary in August, 2017. Most of that time they lived in & out of Colorado where they raised their 3 sons who encouraged their Mom & Dad to retire at the site of their family-owned summer “Cottage,” formerly known as “Palmetto Lodge” (1932-65). It was purchased with Karen’s parents in 1979.

Why the Owner Chose Geneva-on-the-Lake, OH, USA:
In 2004, the new “Cottage” was built along with a 200’ limestone lake revetment, giving the next generation a family legacy to enjoy on this beloved 3-acre beachfront property. Keith & Karen have 6 grandchildren and Karen’s sisters have 8 grandchildren who all enjoy their visits to the “Cottage.” In 2009, they opened the walk out apartment in the lower level of their home to summer guests by starting Palmetto Beach Rental.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A spectacular beach / Lake ambience -- 500 feet of lakefront including 300 feet of an extensive sandy beach allowing seclusion for your exclusive use. *Spectacular Lake Erie views from every sliding glass door & window in the apartment. *An extensive 12’ x 80’ deck with 3 large motorized Sunsetter awnings & a gas Weber Grill. *Endless opportunities to play together along with plenty of space to be alone for life’s much needed quiet time.
