About Karen Gould

Our mother grew up here in GOTL living with her grandmother in the 1920's. After marrying our father and moving to California and then Florida for many years, our parents decided to return to the lake and purchased this cottage in '84 as a summer retreat. With their passing, we wanted to keep the GOTL heritage alive and took charge of the cottage in 2011. We updated the cottage almost from the ground up with new windows, electric, insulation, wood, tile & carpeted flooring. Central Air Conditioning and heat duct work was added to every room but the sun room. In 2014, we completed furnishing, decorating and stocking Happy Trails Cottage to create a comfortable, fun, easy living space where guests can go to the private beach and relax and swim or jump into the action along Ohio's first Lake Resort town. We look forward to having you visit and enjoy your stay in Happy Trails Cottage!

Karen Gould purchased this cottage in 1984

Incredibly cute, incredibly clean, perfect location. Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property with friends and family. The front porch was my favorite spot! Perfect location between strip and lake. Bedrooms very comfy and the cottage had everything we needed. Easy to rent and easy departure. Some places basically require you to clean before you leave. Hardly any departure instructions although we left it in good shape. Check in was at 4 pm, but we were told the day before that it was ready and we could arrive anytime before 4 pm! Neighbors were VERY friendly too. Karen worked well with us and responded immediately when we had any questions...which were hardly any. Can't wait to come back!!

Convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for our 2 families (2 families of 4 each). The location is superb! Easy walk to main restaurants and private beach. The nearby marina state park has lots of fun things to do. We had a great time BBQ in the backyard. Would definitely visit again!

AWESOME PLACE !!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect in every way ! It was very clean and well maintained. My parents , 4 boy teenagers (ages 16 to 18) and myself stayed comfortably in this house. The teenagers loved the location, walk out to the right you are on main street, and walk out and go left and you are at lake. We had such a great time here and can't wait to go back!

Perfect Ladycation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Karen was super easy to work with and the house was fantastic. I was a little nervous about how hot it was going to be this weekend, but the AC kept the house nice and cold. Everything we needed was provided with the house. We had so much fun!

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 4 of 5

Happy Trails Cottage had everything we needed for a great vacation at Geneva-on-the-Lake (GOTL), Ohio. It is a wonderfully appointed house and comes with all the "tools" you need to cook, visit, relax, and enjoy the beach. The central air-conditioning kept the cottage cool during a very warm three days. This cottage definitely added to our enjoyment of GOTL!

There was one problem: we were surprised by an empty propane tank in the grill and had to postpone our first cookout. The owners had a new tank installed the next morning. Hopefully, they will be more diligent and this problem will not impact other renters.

On the strip!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and welcoming-- it had plenty of extras that are needed on a vacation (towels, laundry soap, trash bags, tissues, kitchen utensils, etc.). The property manager was available for questions & pleasant. The location was steps from private beach & the strip. Plenty of parking available too. Overall, we were extremely happy!!!!
