About Darlene and Bud Hallsky

We live in a suburb of Youngstown, Ohio. It is only a little over an hour away from home which makes it convenient when we want to get away and relax.

Darlene and Bud Hallsky purchased this house in 2013

Why Darlene and Bud Hallsky chose Ohio

It has been a long time dream of ours to have a place in this area. A family member used to have a place in Madison and we always had a good time when we visited. We took many drives in the area over the years searching for a house right on the water and when we found this house we knew we had to have it.

What makes this house unique

As soon as you walk through the door you are met with views of Lake Erie. Sitting on the deck and watching the ships and the beautiful sunsets make you feel like you are at the ocean without having to travel that far.

Can't say enough: the view, the deck, the house, the hot tub, the amenities; but, the best is having Lake Erie as your backyard. Except a trip to Dairy Queen, we never left. Hot dogs and burgers, pizza on the grill,a great roast beef, potato salad (German and American),steaks, waffles (waffle iron is THE BEST), we didn't have to bring any equipment, just food. Plenty to do-- for an age range of 1 to 68. We already booked next year.

The house had a breathtaking view of the lake. Spacious deck to watch the sun rise and set. Clean; nicely decorated and comfortable. Just a great experience overall!

One of the best of several Lake homes we've enjoyed - great beach access and the view is stunning. The owners were very accommodating and came right away to fix an air-conditioning issue. Pet friendly, clean, and spacious - with cozy reading nooks throughout the house. Enjoyed a fire on the deck the last night as we watched a beautiful sun set.Good biking at the nearby Geneva State Park. And Madison is close to one of my favorite restaurants - the Bascule Bridge Grille in Ashtabula Harbor.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've rented this home, it's right on Lake Erie and has wonderful views! The owners couldn't be any more accommodating and I can't say enough about how well they have worked with us on travel plans! We missed the nice big sectional sofa that used to be there, but it's not a deal-breaker. There are some stairs up to the bedrooms. Kitchen is awesome as well as the patio! Rent this property, you will not regret it.

GREAT Vacation Rental House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our family "meet in the middle" with three families coming from different states. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The beach was great!! Hot tub was so relaxing and wonderful! Adults and children loved our stay here and did not want it to end!!! Bud and Darlene were great to rent from and extremely helpful!!! The town was small but close with a couple good restaurants! We went to the little food/restaurant strip in Geneva on the Lake one afternoon, which was fun! We have rented several houses with our large family and this is the first that we definitely want to go back to! The only thing we could have used was more seating at the kitchen table, but it was so nice outside that we used the patio table also. So peaceful and beautiful!!
