Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Sleeps 8

Betty's Beach House is a beautiful retreat on Lake Erie in a quiet residential location of Geneva-on-the-Lake. This grand old home has a spacious yard surrounding it and sits about 25 feet above the lake with several levels of decks from which you may relax from or take in waterfront activities along our 100’ of lakefront. You can easily walk to the many attractions or restaurants on the strip or just simply hang out and enjoy the tranquility and beauty of this lovely home. This is a non-smoking residence.

Geneva-on-the-lake Strip: This is a fun, tourist town that comes alive in the summer time. There are many cottages woven throughout the Geneva-on-the-Lake community along with The Lodge for resort lodging and a fabulous dining experience at the restaurant on sight; there is an RV park around the corner, and Geneva State Park & Marina about 1/4 mile from the beginning of the strip. These surroundings make for thriving tourist offerings such as restaurants, bars, charter fishing, water activities, shopping, night clubs, putt-putt, a water park, and much more.

Geneva State Park & Marina: Where the lake meets the land; mature woods and a freshwater marsh create the landscape of Geneva State Park, an ideal environment for exploration and play. The marina features ample boat docks with 407 slips and transient docking. A six-lane boat ramp gives you plenty of room to head out into the wild blue yonder. Charter a fishing boat to experience the “walleye capital of the world.” Pick up bait and tackle supplies, fishing licenses, boat accessories, apparel and souvenirs or enjoy the convenience of the fish cleaning services. Full-service boat repair is also available, along with a fueling station and boat and trailer storage to safely store your pride and joy until the next season. Stop by the deli and canteen to stock up on picnic supplies or grab thirst quenching beverages, juicy hamburgers, ready-to-eat sandwiches, tasty snacks and ice cream after a day on the lake.

Seasonal Rental Period: Our season for rentals runs May 1 through October 31.

About Andy and Lisa Birrell

My family has been vacationing in Geneva-on-the-Lakes since the early 50's. We started out at The Zimmerman cottages for many years and then when I was about 12 we bought next door at Poplar Breeze Cottages. When I finished college, I would look along the lake and make a list of homes that had potential and when this home came available, my parents bought it. We have had so many fond memories and great adventures here at the lake and hope that others will create their own, ones that will last a lifetime as well.

Andy and Lisa Birrell purchased this house in 1987

Why Andy and Lisa Birrell chose Geneva-on-the-Lake

We realized the potential this home had when we bought it; it is located on three lots, it is situated about 30 feet above Lake Erie and is on a quiet street just beyond the Geneva-on-the-Lake mile long strip leaving us within walking distance of the many attractions. We have made many improvements throughout the years to make our home on the lake a very comfortable and enjoyable place to spend time with family and friends. We have several more projects in mind and will continue to work them in as the time allows.

What makes this house unique

A great front porch to watch passer-by's; a fabulous screened/glassed in sun room to relax and watch the activity on of the lake or watch the sun go down; several decks to choose from, one just outside the sun room and one down by the water; not to mention 100+ feet of lake front and a 60' finger pier that you can fish from. What else do you need when you are looking for peace and tranquility?

Great place! We will be booking this place yearly!

  • 5 of 5

House was awesome, great view of the lake, front and back porches were great for our group to all be together. Beds were so comfortable. Owner responded immediately to any questions I had. We all agreed this is the house to go back to each year. Couple blocks from the strip so very quiet area :)

Betty's beach house was better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Betty's beach house was a beautiful retreat on the lake in a perfect location for us. The lake was our back yard, and we were walking distance to the strip for food & fun. The house had plenty of room, and the extra yard on either side of the house allowed us space for great family fun!

Betty's was surprisingly nicer than described.

Beautiful, clean, ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this rental with our friends and their children - 8 of us in total. The property was magnificent! Every part of this house was immaculately clean, and we truly enjoyed spending time on the lakeside deck. The sunsets and sunrises were beautiful! The location was just a few steps from the edge of town and was very quiet. The town of Geneva-on-the-Lake provided plenty of locations for eating, entertainment, and sightseeing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others!
