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

I enjoyed the visit from the kids the.most . A few things about the property was there was a container of cigarette butts on the picnic table I thought was just disgusting as no one I had with.me smoked . The chairs provided was full of spider webs and dust , and the floor was filthy like a mop hadn't touched it. That being said other than cleanliness I had a terrific time and so did my kids.
