Just a few steps from the shores of Chippewa Lake, Ohio's largest natural lake, Brookshore Cottage is both spacious and cozy. Built as a summer cottage for family retreats, expansion and renovation have made it a delight for today's travelers. Comfortable sleeping for up to 12, there are 2 bedrooms (one King and one Queen) and a full bath on the main floor. Each of these bedrooms has a TV. The second floor offers additional sleeping for 8 and another full bath. Handy first floor laundry. Main area includes 60 in. big screen TV in living room, fully equipped kitchen, large dining area, and pool table. Linens and towels are also provided. Outside there is a shady yard with large playset for kids and a deck with gas grill. Outdoor furniture is provided for lounging. The lake is a short distance and offers recreation plus gorgeous sunsets. Swim, boat, fish, or just relax! A new public launch ramp makes for easy access to the water if you bring a boat or jetskis. There is no horse power limit on Chippewa Lake.

The lake is about a block away and was closed during our stay for bacteria,the home itself was lovely with lots of room. My family enjoyed the pool table very much. Very comfortable and would stay again
Great group rental
This house was perfect for our women's retreat for our Bible study. Great gathering space and places to hang, tons of fridge space, my kids enjoyed the swing set, very safe, quiet, walkable area. The house was very cute. Great touches, like blankets everywhere, adorably arranged towels, etc. It was very comfortable and we would absolutely go back! A couple of things to be aware of: the lake doesn't have much beach space, and the one beach they had was closed due to some kind of microbial count in the water, so there was no place for people to swim or hang out without a boat. A little disappointing, but hard to predict and certainly doesn't reflect on the property. A couple funny things about the property: there are some comically uneven parts of the floor so if you have unsteady walkers in your group (elderly people?) maybe keep that in mind. Also, kitchen has plenty of dishes, but the dishwasher is small, and the pots/ pans/ cooking gear situation is, like many rental properties, a little underwhelming. If you need a kettle, specific pans, cooking utensils, or measuring things, you might want to bring those yourself. Not a deal breaker to me, it was a great place to stay, just more of a heads up. We really loved our stay and hope to return!
Exceeded our expectations
We were sharing this property with other family members coming into town for a wedding reception. The house was set up very nice and was clean. Even our towels were made into cute animals in each bedroom. Loved that house was stocked with all the basics and not a far drive to supermarket. The community was very friendly also. Beautiful lake with beach access and a playground at end of street. My children didn't want to leave. For a lake community this house is set up with a good amount of privacy. The firepit was also nice to have in the backyard. Since it rained for 2 days it was a bonus having pool table and board games. House has central air so it was definitely comfortable for all of us. A big plus for me was having 2 refrigerators and the washer and dryer. Would highly recommend this place if you are going to be in the area. Thank you Chris for going above and beyond with all the information you keep in the house to help with our stay.
We loved it and wish we could have stayed longer. It was so homey and would highly recommend for large families. It was like home away from home!
It was a lovely quaint little home and worked out wonderfully for our trip.
We were visiting Ohio for a family gathering in Valley City. It was a good location and very comfortable for our party of 3 adults and 5 children. We did not get to spend much time at the cottage with the other activities we were in town for but we were able to grill one evening and sit by the fire pit another night. It had everything we needed. Thank you
