About Karen Gould

I am a registered nurse currently working in the area of school health. Every day is different and unpredictable. Interacting with the students make my job rewarding and fun. I love to cook (I have all the Barefoot Contessa cookbooks), sew and travel.

Karen Gould purchased this house in 1976

Why Karen Gould chose Ohio

Grandview Manor has been our family home since 1976. I have so many great memories to cherish. The summers were especially memorable. What child wouldn't enjoy having the lake in their backyard? Instant fun! We enjoyed picnics with family and friends with plenty of room for everyone and lots of activities. After the sun went down, we would go to Geneva-On-The-Lake and join the fun.

What makes this house unique

The Grandview Manor is less than 1 mile from Geneva State Park. The property is private and quiet. One of my favorite things to do is wake up early to sip my tea in the gazebo and watch the sunrise over the lake.

Spacious, clean and thoroughly enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

The property was quite nice with interesting notes of intriguing furnishings. The house layout was excellent, the kitchen spacious and well stocked with utensils and equipment. The bedrooms were large and three of the four showcased Lake Erie in both view and sound. All enjoyed the sound of the waves each night. The grounds were large and included a gazebo and fire pit.

We did some swimming right off the property and at a state park just to the east and within walking distance. Also, nearby was a town on the lake and another town a few minutes away which had a killer hardware store.

Vineyards were everywhere which yielded a number of restaurants with fine local vintages. Covered bridges were easy to find and interesting in their history. During our stay, we were fortunate enough to overlap with the Ashtabula county fair near Jefferson, OH. Again, a winning family experience.

Finally, we experience a couple of minor issues which were addressed quickly by the local manager and verified by the owner. Our stay was enhanced by this; Impressive!

All in all, a wonderful time was had by all. Truly a very nice place situated in an interesting part of Ohio.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We are an extended family of 11, including three generations. Our weeklong vacation at Grandview Manor was restful as well as exciting. We really enjoyed the gazebo for reading and card playing and the well stocked kitchen for preparing meals. During the week, there was something for everyone, from winery visits to swimming and kayaking, watching sunsets to walking the Strip. We enjoyed discovering a placid lake from which to launch an inflatable boat, as well as taking photos of the smallest and largest covered bridges in Ohio. Truly one of our best vacations!

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The occasion for our visit was an upcoming "memorable" birthday of mine. My sisters rented the Manor as a surprise to me for the 4 of us to have a long weekend away. It was incredible. I have so many pictures of us outside at the bluff, we had awesome weather which included sunsets, a campfire and watching the big, big storm come in on Saturday night. We all love storms. Listening to the waves that night was amazing. Lots of card playing and eating favorite meals. Included a wine tour which was very enjoyable and some shopping another day, but mostly just relaxing and being together. The bedrooms were big and very nice and included air conditioning for the hot nights. I was not particularly looking forward to this birthday, but I can now honestly say every single time I think about that weekend, I smile. I wish it had been another day longer, and would love to go back again.

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We initially chose Grandview Manor because we wanted to be away from the activities on the strip. It was a lovely setting to spend a long weekend away from home with my sisters. The evenings sitting on the bluff with the fire and the waves crashing was very relaxing. Our weather was such that getting down to the beach was difficult at times. But anyone who wanted quality Beach time only had to travel five minutes to get to Geneva beach.

We had most of our meals at the house in the dining room which was very comfortable, the kitchen was very accommodating and had everything we needed. Some evenings we spent at the kitchen table playing cards.

We did use the AC in the bedrooms as the weather was pretty warm, but some nights it was just too hard to pass up opening the windows and listening to the waves crash on the beach.

It is a beautiful old home, and Karen was extremely helpful and answering any questions and being available when we needed her. This is definitely on our list of places to visit again
