What makes this cottage unique

A lake house should be on the lake--better yet, should be on the beach. The Beach House at Guilford Lake is one of the few around that offers a level walk to the sandy beach (who wants a gravel Lake Erie beach?), an unobstructed view of the lake and more. With over 400 square feet of covered patios, rain or shine you can always enjoy your visit. Another 400 square feet of open patio means you can sunbathe in private. Most cottages are old--this one is new so you get all the comforts of a modern building right on the beach.

We looked at Lake Erie properties but the problem is, without a horizon, it's boring to look at water only. We looked at larger lakes but the unlimited horsepower boats and jet skis make a relaxing visit impossible. We looked at smaller lakes but they're not much fun for boating. Just like Goldilocks would say, this lake is not too large, not too small but just right!

The beach house was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house. The beach decor through out the house was so cute . The kitchen was supplied with all the comforts of home . Nice touch was extra beach towels to use, plenty of bath towels for all of us. Very large shower, and bath tub. Front porch was used for daily meals, and late night s'mores made on fire pit. Loved being right on beach . I cant say anything bad about this beautiful home and Cassandra our host . She greeted us and showed us everything that we needed to know.

Great Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

We were not disappointed in the Ohio Beach House! The pictures don't do the house justice. The house was clean and fully stocked. George and Linda greeted us in person and walked us through everything we needed to know. We are already looking forward to our return trip in September!

Absolutely fabulous! It is a wonderful weekend getaway for family and friends :)

  • 5 of 5

I could not say enough great things about my experiencing renting this property! The pictures do not do justice to the home. Once I opened the door to the home, I was completely stunned by how beautiful (and also clean) it was. I had rented the property for a graduation party. All of my guests kept telling me how breathtaking the home was! Aside from the property itself, Mr. Henshaw, his wife and cleaning lady were wonderful. When I showed up to the home, there were "Congratulations" signs hanging up! I never would have expected that added touch, but Mr. Henshaw and all really went above and beyond. I would love to rent the place next summer :) It is a nice escape from home, and the home has everything that we need for our stay! :)

Owner's Response: We operate this property primarily because we really enjoy making guests happy. Our objective is to promise much and deliver even more. It's always fun to hear guests upon entering say "Wow! the pictures don't do it justice". After they settle in they find that the extra touches and cleanliness put The Beach House above and beyond almost any other place they've stayed.

Beautiful and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house far exceeded our expectations. As stated in the description, you literally DO NOT have to take anything except your food and clothing. The owners have beautifully furnished and decorated the house, and everything is high quality. All furnishings were very comfortable. The owner greeted us upon arrival to show us around and give us some helpful tips. I cannot say enough about how happy we were with this rental and hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: From brand name dinnerware to brand name paper goods (such as Bounty and Charmin) we furnish plenty of top quality items. Want to sleep well? The three beds all feature top-of-the-line Original Mattress Factory mattresses. Simply, we want our guests to enjoy the same high quality items that they would choose for their own homes.
