About The Owner

Hello.. We are Tris and Paul and we welcome you to our home. We have been renting out our summer home since 2000 and we have really enjoyed meeting so many families who have stayed at our place over the years (&the friends who return each year). It is great meeting people from all over who are excited to get together with family & friends and enjoy some time at our beach.

I have lived in Madison most of my life and Tris is from Indonesia. We got married in 2009. We both work together managing the cottage and we thoroughly enjoy it each summer.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1999

Why The Owner chose Ohio

Growing up in the quaint small town of Madison, I have always been drawn to the lake. So, when I had the opportunity to buy this place in 1999 I jumped on it. Our dream is to eventually build a summer home on the lot where we have our beach and to continue to share it with renters. The past 10 years have been filed with many happy memories shared with so many renters. We take a lot of pride in what we provide and we just love to share the blessings we have.

What makes this cottage unique

So many renters first show up to our home with a long list of plans of what they want to do during their stay...and most of them are just so content to stay at the beach, watching sunsets, swimming, boating having campfires and cookouts and really do not want to leave. Most renters like the quietness of the private beach.

Wonderful home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience in the home for our vacation. They thought of everything from towels to coffee filters. The view was beautiful. The water was up so we didnt get to swim much at the private beach but we did have a fire and marshmellows. The house was clean and cozy. Would definitly rent again.

Need a relaxing place to go? This cute little home fits the bill. Comfy beds, a good working kitchen, pretty décor, great beachfront, and pretty sunsets! Paul was always available to answer my questions during our stay. We all loved our weekend away!

We had a wonderful time. The cottage is beautiful and well equipped with all you need. We loved the private beach on the other side of the road. Paul and Tris are really amazing and nice people. We invited them to have a barbeque with us and we had a wonderful evening.

We will definitly come back on our next trip to the U.S.

My two girlfriends and I LOVE this cottage! We have stayed many places in our 30+ years of taking bi-yearly getaway trips but this has become our favorite! It's SO peaceful and relaxing in this home. We have rented from Paul before and knew we would be walking into a well-equipped and pristine home. The rental process is completely hassle-free! Paul was so attentive to making sure our stay was enjoyable by recommending local wineries and letting us know we were welcome to use the gas logs as the weather was expected to turn chilly. We can't wait to stay here again next year!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing weekend at this cottage. We couldn't have had a better time. Paul and Tris are so gracious and accommodating. The cottage is beautiful and very well appointed. They have everything you could need for you, just bring your clothes! Board games and movies are a nice touch also. The private beach on the other side of the road is a dream. My kids couldn't have had a better time running in the lawn and we really enjoyed the beauty and serenity of the private beach area. When the weather didn't cooperate there are so many amazing historic places to check out as well as a lot of fun kid's activity centers. This is just an absolute gem that I would recommend to anyone. We are so excited to have found this wonderful place with such amazing hosts! The kids have already started planning our trip back! Couldn't have been more pleased; thank you!

Another great visit!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just concluded another great stay at Paul and Tris' beautiful cottage on Lake Erie. We've lost count but believe this is our 6 or 7th year to stay in this wonderful house. The setting is relaxed, the house is beautiful and fully equipped - we only need to bring clothes and food, and the weather was fantastic as it generally is when we visit. Paul and Tris are wonderful hosts - very friendly and discrete but available if we need them. Coming here for our week in July is a highlight of our year - we're already looking forward to next year!
