'Forever House' is owned by 4th-generation Lakesiders who resurrected the former Richards House Annex into a cozy year-round getaway.
Outside, some of the largest porch space in Lakeside awaits you, with full upstairs and downstairs wrap-around outdoor living space.
The first floor features an open floor plan with Kitchen, Dining Room and Living Room as well as office, half bath and full laundry room. There is a bedroom on the first floor with a single bed.
On the second floor is a generously-sized master suite with walk-in closet, over-sized tiled shower and double vanity. This bedroom opens up onto the upstairs front porch. Also on the second floor is a single bedroom (opening onto second floor porch) and double bedroom, along with a full bath featuring clawfoot tub and shower.
The third floor is an open floor plan with a queen bed and two twins along with a full bathroom.
The entire house features dual-zone air conditioning and natural gas/forced air heat. The home was completely gutted and remodeled in 2008, but we retained the charm of the original interior doors and hardwood floors while adding all-new windows, appliances, electrical and more - the best of both worlds!
Forever House is located 2 blocks from Lake Erie and the Lakeside dock. Within easy walking distance are multiple parks with playgrounds, scenic lakefront walks, shopping (season), dining (year-round), tennis courts (seasonal), miniature golf (seasonal), basketball courts, shuffleboard courts and much, much more.
PLEASE NOTE: When staying at Forever House during the summer months, generally Memorial Day through Labor Day, you will be required to buy passes to enter Lakeside for all people 12 years and up.
We love Lakeside, and spend as much time there as we can. Sarah grew up there every summer, and we have family all over town that we love to come spend time with. We spend a couple weeks a year ourselves in this house, so we know that it will feel like home to you too!
Ryan Hamilton purchased this house in 2008
"Forever House" is a rarity in Lakeside, with all the amenities like central air, spacious living spaces, huge porches and more. We've tried to combine the best of vintage charm with all the modern conveniences. An added benefit is the location - you'll be within 2 blocks of Lake Erie, Hoover Auditorium, Central Park, restaurants, shops, and most of the action in Lakeside.
We are a family of 10 that love to vacation together. We had the most awesome time and truly enjoyed our stay. The home was large enough to accommodate all. We cooked wonderful breakfasts/dinners in the large efficient kitchen. The weather was beautiful. We spent a lot of time walking around, visiting the shops, fishing, playing games and sitting on the large porch. My 4 yr old granddaughter loved our visit so much that she told her mom, "I want this to be our house and I want us all to live together here".
I would definitely recommend this large, beautiful home to anyone looking for a very comfortable, clean home to stay in.
We loved Forever House. It was clean, well appointed, and spacious enough for our large group to be together for a week without feeling crowded or on top of one another, particularly with 5 kids underfoot. Ryan was a fantastic landlord/host - answered all our questions promptly and professionally, and was easy to reach. The house had everything we could ask for and more. We were worried we'd be too far from the center of town, the parks, water, etc, but the location ended up being perfect. We loved sitting out on the porch each day and walking everywhere. My family would stay again in a heartbeat! Worth the price!
We enjoyed such a nice visit at Forever House. We are a family of 4 with 2 young children and invited another family with 3 young children to stay with us for the first few days. We had ample room for everyone to sleep and even had a queen and twin bed leftover that no one used. We loaded the fridge with groceries and prepared all but 1 of our meals over the 7 days we were there. Great patio space to relax with morning coffee and evening cocktail. Extremely convenient location that allowed us to explore and play with little complaining from the kids (re: walking). Lol. My 3 year old cried when we pulled away in our car at the end of our visit because he didn't want to leave. Thrilled this house has central heat and air AND has trash curbside pickup. Home owner is very responsive and professional. Loved it so much, we hope to return for another amazing visit. Thanks for letting us stay!
Excellent property central to Lakeside. Very clean and very nicely decorated and quite comfortable for a group of friends or family. Would definitely return.
We had a wonderful weekend in Lakeside! The house was perfect for a large family with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, a large and well equipped kitchen and loads of seating on the front porch where we spent most of our time. It is located right downtown where all of the action is and served as an ideal hub for children biking around town or walking back and forth to the park. As we sat on the porch sipping coffee Sunday morning, my 91 year old father asked if we could do this again next year!
Located within Lakeside Chautauqua, with both seasonal and year-round activities. Within 30 minutes of world-famous Cedar Point amusement park. The shore of Lake Erie is full of both seasonal and year-round attractions.
