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

Cute, clean and close to everything
Our weekend was a bit cold and rainy which landed us indoors a bit more then we would have liked. Thankfully the property was very spacious so we had plenty of room to spread out. The owner was very easy to plan with. I would book with her again when we come back next year. The beach was small but perfect size for our little ones to build a sandcastle and gather water in buckets. The house was also located perfectly in the center of the strip. We just walked everywhere. The neighbors were super nice too!!
Best place we have stayed !!!
This is our 4th trip to GOTL and this place was the best. The home is beautiful and roomy. We had 8 people and there was more then enough room. You really did just need your beach towels, everything else is there. I would recomend this to anyone. The location is perfect, right on the strip but back enough that it was quiet. Karen is also great to work with. We will stay here again.. Thanks Karen
So glad you enjoyed!
This is the best vacation we ever had! it was the perfect location for our family. There was something for everyone to do. The attention to detail was extraordinary. Happy Trails cottage will be a wonderful memory for all of us. Thank you so much!
4 Days at Happy Trails
Wow! This is a fantastic place to stay to enjoy Geneva on the Lake. A short walk takes you to a private section of the lake beach. A short walk in the other direction takes you to the middle of the main street which holds games, food, drinks, shops, antiques, and family fun.
Karen had everything ready for us!
Beach towels and food were all we really needed!
She even provided hand soap and shower wash in the bath and shower areas. Laundry soap and dish soap were also provided.....what a relief!
The laundry room was so handy...and we LOVED the sunroom!
Everything was so CLEAN! We had a toddler with us, and we never worried about her.
This site is definitely worth the price. Check it out!
