Absolutely PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

I must say The Lily Cottage is BY FAR the nicest, cleanest, most relaxing get-away cottage we've ever stayed in over the past 15 years. We always choose difference cottages around Northeast Ohio to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This cottage is beautiful and when you walk in, you instantly feel warm and cozy. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook your favorite meals. The leather couches are plush and comfortable with a wall unit fireplace that gives you a sense of enjoying a real fire. The bedrooms are perfect. We loved the master suite that had a large flat screen TV on the wall to enjoy our favorite movies in a comfortable bed filled with extra fluffy pillows. All the technology throughout the house was a bonus -- including the free wifi and computer!! The bathroom was impeccably clean as was every inch of the house. We even took advantage of the reasonably priced car service to enjoy the Geneva wineries. Honestly, we wished we could have stayed longer. I was beyond impressed with the communications I had with the owner and his wife. They quickly responded via email to all of our questions and even included website links to make things even more convenient for us. We can't wait to go back in the late spring to celebrate a couples weekend.

Fraudulent Business

  • 1 of 5

Grew up in Geneva and know this entire town and everyone that lives near this cottage. DO NOT RENT HERE. They are keeping security deposits and not providing contracts or terms of agreement BEFORE you agree to rent; therefore, you pay not knowing what you are agreeing to. They don't disclose that there are camera's throughout. No visitor's are allowed or they will not refund your money. They verify through this camera system and are constantly watching your every move. The well water system is disgusting. The beds are EXTREMELY hard and uncomfortable. The blankets are cheap at best. This place is creepy.

Owner's Response: Future Guests: As you can see from ALL guests giving The Lily Cottage 5/5 stars in the past three years, the feedback provided here from this disgruntled guest isn't remotely close to other people's experiences or feedback after visiting our cottage.Please know this guest opted not to respect or abide by the policies stated in writing prior to her visit regarding the extra-guest policy after assuring us otherwise. Furthermore, she emailed us very positive feedback immediately after checking-out of the cottage contrary to her review on VRBO a week later: Message via email by this guest: " Hi John! This place was amazing. We felt at home here and really enjoyed our stay. Thank you. We put all the sheets and blankets in the laundry room, ran the dishwasher and there are 2 garbage bags on the front porch. The house is in great shape. It was a great Indians win last night too!!! :) If you are not renting this place during Christmas, I may reach out. I will be back during the holidays. Thank you so much John and please reach me if you need anything. " The cottage is a business we operate with integrity, generosity, fairness, and professionalism. We have had repeat guests time after time. Please know the water tastes perfectly fine, the beds are warm and comfortable, and the one and only camera on the property is located on the light pole in the front yard that observes the driveway as a safety precaution to YOU and me. I welcome you to experience this lovely cottage for warmth, peace, and relaxation. Many couples, friends, and families have thoroughly enjoyed this lovely place... and guests who abide by the policies and are honest in their communications always walk away very happy and satisfied with their stay and fully refunded security deposits. We take enormous pride in our business, are always happy to accommodate specific or special requests when possible, and look forward to booking a visit for YOU in the near future. Thank you, John and Marie

What a gem in Geneva!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for a girl's weekend in August. What a wonderful weekend getaway! The pictures do not do the place justice! Everything is quality! Decor is great, lots of space inside and out. It was nice to have a half bath on the main level. It is very quiet and relaxing. Definitely felt at home here. The beds were not that comfortable but everything else was so nice we overlooked it! Would go back here for amother weekend trip! Wonderful!

The cottage was exactly as listed

  • 5 of 5

The Lily Cottage was everything we could have imagined. It is a beautiful home from the outside and on the inside. It is not only lovely, but comfortable and inviting. The surrounding property was so much fun for our four grandsons to explore and run wild after 12 hours in the car. We even had wildlife visit in the morning and again in the evening which they found fascinating. And to top it all off, the hostess was on top of everything. Any question that I sent her, she had an almost immediate reply complete with website for me to explore. It is a shame that we don't go through Ohio more often, because this would be our go to place every time we did. Definitely and 5 star and thumbs up place.
