About Eli Williams
I'm an actor/ musician living in New York City. I have been in NYC for the past 5 years. I grew up in the Portage Lakes area and always loved being there. I do get home to see my family and stay at the house every few months.
Eli Williams purchased this House in 1993
Why Eli Williams chose Akron
In 2000 I decided to upgrade the bathroom upstairs in the hallway by the bedrooms. I ended up re-modeling the entire house. I ripped down walls and the ceiling, put in 7 skylights and all new appliances.
What makes this House unique
It's beautiful in ALL-SEASONS. During boating months it's a perfect location as you can dock a boat (owned or rented) at the private dock located on the property.

Great place for a relaxing family vacation
This lake house was the perfect place for my children, their friend and I to have as a home base on our sports vacation road trip. Located in a quiet neighborhood part way between Cleveland and Canton, we were easily able to get to the Football Hall of Fame and professional sporting events in Cleveland.
I also loved it because the beautifully-kept home was perfectly laid out. I could relax in the open concept main living area, while enjoying a few moments of peace and the view of the lake and large backyard. The kids loved the large downstairs bedroom/television/hangout rooms where they had their own space.
The property owner was extremely accessible throughout the booking and during the course of our stay. He made sure we had everything we needed, and was a pleasure to deal with.
I’m so happy I found this home for our vacation. It was even better than I could have imagined.
Brenda thanks so much, I really enjoyed having you as a guest. It takes a lot of courage to travel with 3 boys so I was hoping you'd find some peaceful time for yourself. Come back soon, Eli
Great place! Just as described
We had a great experience at the house. The views of the lake from the house are amazing! Morning coffee on the patio overlooking the lake was the best way to start every day!
My wife and I had a wonderful week of vacation. This is the second time that we have stayed in this house. We enjoy the convenience of docking our pontoon boat at the house so we can go on the lake at any time we want. We also enjoyed biking on the nearby Ohio Erie Canalway Towpath Trail. We rode it all the way to Cleveland. The house is unique and conveniently situated just a few minutes from I-77. It is spacious and all the amenities needed. We likely will visit again.
Lovely home, perfect location
Our family enjoyed the weekend here celebrating my mom’s birthday. We chose the location to be near my sister’s family—they live nearby on the lake, but couldn’t accommodate all of us. They were able to drive their boat over and dock it for the weekend. We enjoyed the porch and yard and it was great being near the grocery store. The home was clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend and will stay again if we have the opportunity.
It sounds like I missed a great time! Haha please come back soon and I am so happy you enjoyed it.
Could not have asked for better place to stay!
This is a lovely home right on lake front property. Home is well appointed for family gathering.
Sleeps quite a few people; lower level is much better suited for kids or those that don’t need privacy. Kitchen is stocked with most cooking utensils and needed appliances although could not find a mixer. The patio is great and the view of the lake is lovely. We had a lovely fire one night on the fire mound and had a good ole Weiner roast with S’mores.
