About Al Sampson
We are a recently retired couple that could not stay retired who love to travel and enjoy water front properties ourselves. We have rented to guests from April to December from all parts of the country. We do get great comments on the accommodations and the lake area.
Al Sampson purchased this House in 2009
Why Al Sampson chose Celina
We both grew up in the area and like to return as often as we can and for our vacations. It is an entertaining and restful area with great restaurants, taverns and parks in the area. The lake dock is great for sun bathing, fishing or just relaxing as is the large deck just 5 feet from the lake shore.
What makes this House unique
The view of the lake is breathtaking, especially in the moon light. The convenience and great quality of the nearby restaurants as well as the fully equipped kitchen adds to the stay. The great fishing from the 32 foot dock is exceptional. The deck just 5 feet from the shore, is so relaxing and a great place for gatherings especially with the fire pit just steps away.

Cottage on the Lake
The cottage was very comfortable and well stocked with all the necessities. The view was wonderful.
This is a well equipped small lake house with a great view!
We had a great time at this lake house. The home is clean and comfortable and well stocked for preparing meals. The lake landscape is beautiful and we saw several bald eagles, as well as heron, ibis, ducks. The quality of the lake water is not good but we knew that from the Ohio DNR site going in. We were there to kayak, not fish or swim, so for us, it was still great. The owner was very easy to work with and helpful about local attractions. Overall it was a wonderful place!
Great cozy lake house!
House was very clean and well maintained. The owner provided everything we needed which made getting settled so easy.
The lake view from the back deck was amazing. My wife and I looked forward to having morning coffee on the deck and watching the sun set in the evening.
I had an opportunity to meet the owner on trash pickup day and even with rain falling, he was more than happy taking the time to talk.
The neighborhood is extremely quite for the number of homes in the area. If you're looking for a lake front getaway, this is the place. We highly recommend it!

Great little gem!
We loved our stay in Celina! Your property is perfectly appointed and has everything you need! The owners were great from start to finish, and the welcome email they send really gets you prepared for everything Celina has to offer. The water front aspect of this house is the best part! The kitchen has everything you need to make a great breakfast or dinner. The fire pit is amazing and you can't beat the atmosphere! Hope to stay here again in the future!!
I have stayed at Al and Cathy's wonderful lake house every time it is available when I go back to Celina. It is a wonderful place to enjoy peace and tranquility. The home is always extremely clean and well furnished. I enjoyed watching the boats, pontoons and jet skis as they went by. I would recommend this home as a wonderful get-a-way. Thank you Al and Cathy for your hospitality..
If it would have been harder I would have had to leave the air conditioner was extremely inadequate
There was mold on coffee grounds in the coffee pot and the silver Ware and cups were not clean. Table had crumbs on it and placemats were turned over and the other side was dirty
This is the first negative review this season. The maid service admitted the place mats were set out damp and they missed the coffee grounds. We pride our cleanliness and have made changes. We are adding an additional air conditioner. We do expect all to be great again.
