About April

I grew up in nearby Madison by Lake Erie and have always loved being at the Lake. My family and I spend a lot of time in Geneva-on-the-Lake during the summer, riding our jet ski's and hanging out with our friends at the beach.

April purchased this house in 1998

Why April chose Geneva-on-the-Lake

My husband and I bought this home in 1998 as a yr round rental home. We recently remodeled it and decided to turned it into a weekly rental. We like to stay in homes vs. hotels because you get so much more space and it's a lot more comfortable & fun while traveling with family and friends. GOTL didn't have a lot of great options so, we wanted to provide a nice place to stay, a place that feels like home.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the quiet street a little bit away from the noise of the strip, yet we are able to walk to everything or ride bikes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Acorn Cottage is beautiful, clean and well equipped. Had an awesome time and will definitely rent this property in the future. Review posted on

Beautiful home and wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an amazing stay at Acorn Cottage. The house was beautifully decorated, the kitchen had all the utensils we needed and more, and the beds were so comfortable! Plus, having the hot tub and access to Netflix and Amazon Prime on the smart tv helped to truly make our stay even more enjoyable. It's close to the town and wineries. I'd highly recommend!! The only thing that wasn't exactly ideal was the lighting outside near the hot tub. We couldn't plug in the lights bc the plug was too high, so it was pretty dark at night. But everything else was great! Thank you!

Cute and Cozy!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great weekend at Acorn cottage! The space is very well laid out and well decorated, super cozy atmosphere. I wish my house was this nice! The beds were extremely comfortable. Would definitely stay there again, maybe in the summer next time as the fire pit looks like it would be lots of fun! :)

Needs comfortable seating!

  • 3 of 5

The space was perfect for us, we were close together but not crowded. The kitchen had the necessary cookware but don’t expect any pantry basics. They also let us know about 2 hours before check in that there were no paper products (think toilet paper, paper towels, kitchen garbage bags, etc.) The couch and living room chairs were quite uncomfortable. Just a few inexpensive changes could make this a 5 star property. Surrounding area was great!

Owner's Response: We strive to provide a 5 Star property for this area. sorry you were let down. This is a popular rental and most people love it here. We do let every guest know exactly what is and what is not provided. This is found in the rental agreement that you have to acknowledge online before you can even book the property. As a friendly reminder, I started adding that reminder to my check in text message. We have found that people don’t read the contract and here’s another example of it. It’s no fault of mine, just read your contract or send me a message if your not sure what you need to bring. Staying in a house is a little different, each one is different, it’s not a hotel. Most people find the couch quite comfortable. Not sure what was expected, since you can see what kind of seating there is from the online photos. It’s a small cottage so we cannot add any large comfy recliners. I would suggest that if you are looking for big comfortable lounging furniture, look at larger rentals. Also, look at the pictures closely to see what kind of furniture is in the space. I always try to address all concerns, so I will see what I can do to make it more comfortable yet keep it stylish and still fit in the space.

Charming and inviting

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend in the beautiful cottage. Very comfortable in every way. We would definitely recommend Acorn Cottage. We were in town for a swimming event at SPIRE Institute. We were so much more comfortable here than in a hotel and it was less than 15 minutes away. Thank You!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Such a perfect little house! Beds super comfy hot tub was amazing and kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils. Only thing I will say now they did not provide any toilet paper. After a long drive we had to go back out to the store to get toilet paper. We did bring 1 extra roll but there was none to start with. I would most definitely go back there again!
