Guestbook comments from the owner

Stay was very pleasant and comfortable. The cottage was in an excellent location in relation to Oberlin College, which we were visiting. Amenities were wonderful, Eileen had the fridge fully stocked with anything we could possibly want and made sure to stock with some of our own food requests before we arrived. The place is spotless and well-kept. Loved the animals!

Cozy cottage and more

  • 5 of 5

I have rented several homes through various travel sites. These are the kindest owners I have met. This owner stocks the fridge and cupboards with a variety of food and beverage. They accommodate pets and even include the pet bowls. I highly recommend this cozy cottage. It is not large but did fit our needs. The yard is spacious and the lake is pretty. Has all the comforts of home. The owners live on the same property but they give you privacy.

Secluded and very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Eileen and Don are amazing hosts. My husband, I and our dog had a fantastic getaway! The accommodations far exceeded our expectations. The cottage was extremely clean, comfortable, and very well stocked with supplies, snacks, and beverages. They really went above and beyond any accommodations I have ever had. Although the cottage is on the same property as the hosts, our stay was very quiet, private, and relaxing. We plan to come back the next time we need R&R. We highly recommend.

Charming Little Cottage Away From It All

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! I grew up around Oberlin and it was so nice to find a place to stay besides a hotel. The property is park like and the cottage is clean and inviting. The owners really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. There are plenty of snacks and drinks provided as well. Will be staying here every time we come back!

A wonderful get away (with the dog) !!

  • 5 of 5

A great little place - beautiful property. A wonderful weekend getaway for me and my boys (that would be the hubby and my boy {the dog}. And lots of goodies stocked for guests as well (had to find room in the fridge for food we had brought). So much nicer than a hotel! If it hadn't been such a hot/humid weekend, we might have taken up the offer of bicycles left for our use.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Wonderful hosts......thank you so much! Will probably be back !!

A perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

I love this cottage! We have stayed many times and the Nelsons are such great hosts. It is comfortable and quiet and perfectly equipped. It is an absolutely perfect spot for a short trip or a more extended stay. SO MUCH nicer than a hotel and better equipped too. My son just graduated so we won't have as much need to visit, sadly. Thanks!
