About the property

Sleeps 5 comfortably, Lake view, fully equipped kitchen, private beach access

Cute and quiet cottage with 2 private bedrooms and a small, private bathroom. This unit can sleep up to 6 people with the use of a twin sleeper sofa in the main area, 5 guests comfortably in a queen and full bed with twin bunk.

Enjoy the quiet calm in the modest side or front yard in the lawn chairs after a day at the beach. Take advantage of the beautiful weather by grilling lunch or dinner on the charcoal barbecue grill. Your 4-legged companions are also invited! Spend the evening hours savoring a fire in the fire pit.

Relax in cozy comfort here after enjoying dinner at the nearby Lakehouse Winery & Spa or The Lodge. Perfect after a rejuvenating massage!

You can further explore nature with close access to bicycle rentals at the Lodge or Adventure Zone. The Strip (downtown Geneva on the Lake) is also a short half mile walk away, where more adventure awaits you.

Scout out area wineries by booking one of the local tours. We can also provide recommendations of our favorites that we've discovered along the way.

Crisp, clean sheets & towels are ready for every rental. Complimentary wifi is also provided. Enjoy a nighttime (or rainy day) movie on the Smart TV. Cook breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen before heading out for your fun filled day.

Featuring recently updated flooring, fresh paint, new electric stove and linens. We are proud of the comfortable updates and hope you look forward to enjoying them as much as we do.

Parking for 2 cars included in the driveway.

Good for a couples trip!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week trip with our dog! It was very nice and quiet, which is good to help our dog not bark while we were out to eat! It was a very cute town, and the cottage is very close to the water and the park! It's great!

Clean and well stocked

  • 5 of 5

Small but clean and incredibly well stocked with items we brought with us but didn't really need to (paper towels, plastic cups, toilet paper, aluminum foil). Some of the items may have just been left behind by previous renters, I don't know. I kept losing the WiFi signal, making me think that the wireless router was in the sister cottage where the renter was running a laptop computer, perhaps using up most of the bandwidth. Of course, I was trying to play music (Pandora), and I understand that it requires a strong, steady connection.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We do provide the paper items you saw in the cottage for our guest's convenience. We're happy you were able to make use of them! We did install a wifi extender recently, so we apologize for any issues you experienced. I'll be sure to update the login info in Erie-ly Calm to make better use of the extender. We hope to have you come stay with us again!

It was the absolutely perfect place for a short getaway from Pittsburgh, close enough to enjoy your first day, and far enough to have feel of a true vacation.

The cottage was very well equip with the necessities (thanks for the coffee) and was clean and comfortable.

We had 3 adults in our group and had plenty of space.

I recommend going to Geneva-on-the-Lake State Park. It was a nice, clean and quiet beach.

The town of Geneva has many quaint little shops to explore.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to "M Cellars" 🍷? Winery. A very extensive and comprehensive taste testing.

We are looking forward to staying at the Erie-ly Calm Cottage in the future.

Thanks Amy and Ryan!

Fine lodging for budget minded

  • 4 of 5

Pro: Cute cottage. Price was right. Location was ideal. Clean. Comfortable beds. The kids loved the bunks. Loved that I could bring my dog.

Con: Pull out bed was most uncomfortable I have ever been on. Would be hard to stay long term without cooking facilities.

About Amy Montgomery for Montburger Rentals

We currently live in Pittsburgh, by way of a decade in Louisiana. My husband grew up not far from GOTL in Ohio. We have spent many summers ourselves in GOTL (including getting married there!) and wanted to share this area with other travelers who are looking for a quieter summer getaway.

Amy Montgomery for Montburger Rentals purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Amy Montgomery for Montburger Rentals chose Geneva

My husband spent many summers in GOTL growing up, and we want to continue the tradition with our own family. We love the quaint area very much, and got married at the Lodge as well. We have a long history in GOTL and hope you enjoy it as much as we do! We love that this property is a short walk to the Strip, but is quiet at night and not part of the lively Strip itself.

What makes this cottage unique

Next to a convenience store, short walk to the Lodge, less than 5 minute drive to the Strip (within walking distance), lake view across the street
