About Gary & Sherrie

I am a Contractor by trade, with numerous years of retail background too. A funny combination, but very useful in my life. My wonderful wife and I decided to purchase properties for the sole purpose of renting them as vacation cabins/cottages, as a means to build a retirement program for our future.

As a contractor, I will have little in the means of 401K/Social Security, so defining my retirement and preparing for it, is my goal now. So we decided to purchase numerous rental properties - (Cabins/Cottages) and offer them to you and your family as a great place to get away and enjoy an inexpensive vacation, close to home, but far enough away to relax too.

Lots of great fishing, sight-seeing, hiking, bike riding, and other fun stuff for you and your family.

Even if your not into fishing, the lake offers lots of enjoyment in so many other ways...

Kayak, Canoe, Sail, take a cruise or just go see the fish and ducks, there's always something to do. If you never been to the spillway in Linesville, PLEASE take loaves of bread and go have fun... Your kids will love it!!!!!

Gary & Sherrie purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Gary & Sherrie chose Pymatuning Central

We purchased this location because LOCATION is the key thing for us. We wanted our Cabins/Cottages to be close to the Causeway, as it is the center attraction, the place to be when you're at the lake. All our properties are in the same area for this same reason.

We also wanted a SAFE, QUIET area for you to relax at...

Enjoyable cabin for fishing trips

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyable cabin for fishing trips. We went up with four people and we were very comfortable in this house. We enjoyed the time that we spent around the fire and also enjoyed the quiet summer nights. I would recommend anybody that's looking to go for a short vacation to stay here. The owner is very receptive and always answers any questions you may have.

If you love pymatuming this is the perfect rental

  • 5 of 5

Loved my stay here, had a cottage owned by family years ago next door and it brought back such memories being near it, this cottage was very nice and like Gary says has everything you need, I brought more then I needed for sure, and it was very clean and felt like home, awesome fire pit and porch for spending time with friends and family, definitely close to many of the attractions in the area. The biggest compliment I can give is to Gary as the water well ran out and he came over immediately two days in a row to get the pump up and running after my mistake, he is a great rental property owner and I def plan to come back, as I had a great time and know that I can trust him as a owner to take care of any issue you may come across, he is friendly for sure, in the end if your looking for a great place to enjoy the outdoors, and don't want to get rained out in a tent(trust me I have been there) then this is the place to go and Gary is the man to rent a cottage off of.

Car: recommended

The Cabins/Cottages we own are all located on the PA side of Pymatuning Lake, within walking distance of the Causeway and the Lake itself.

We selected these locations because they sit in the most desired area of the lake region, with great access to all the towns, and prime to the lake itself.

When we select a Cabin/Cottage to purchase/own and rent, we always think of our end-user and what will they like and enjoy. We purchase Cabins/Cottages where we know we would want to stay, In Safe & Quiet locations; close to the Lake so you can take a walk and enjoy the sunset at night or the cool fog/dew on an early morning walk by the Lake.

Just minutes by foot from the Causeway, Marina, and the Lake, you can take a stroll any time of the day and enjoy the water, the fishing or the fresh air blowing off the lake.

Our Cabins/Cottages are modest, as a cottage should be. They are a bit rustic, but CLEAN. We work really hard to keep that country feel, back to an earlier time when life was more simple.

If your looking for a nice, clean, comfortable place, where you can kick your shoes off and just chill out, then we have the place for you...

While your at one of our cabins, make sure you go to the Spillway, and feed the fish. You should take at least 4-6 loafs of bread, and have fun watching the fish go nuts over the bread....
