About Bruce and Renee Boling

Our names are Bruce and Renee Boling. We were high school sweethearts and have been married 40 years. We have two sons, daughter -in-law, one grandson, and a dog named Adam. Bruce is an auto body technician and I am a jack of all trades and a master of none. We work well together at everything we do and have lived in Ohio all our lives. As a matter of fact we live right next to our vacation rental home. We have lived here in Geneva for 39 years and have worked hard for everything we have because we love the area!

Bruce and Renee Boling purchased this house in 2014

Why Bruce and Renee Boling chose Ohio

When we moved to Geneva, Ohio we thought it was a great area with a nice quiet neighborhood. After a couple days, I met our new neighbor, Hazel Jeppe. She lived on the left side of us and was around 85 years old. She invited me into her "Florida room" or "Sun room", which was at the back of the house. This is where she would spend most of her time to sit and relax. I can see why! Ever since then I wanted to buy it ,but couldn't because for one thing we didn't have the money and someone else bought which was my old landlord: Who would of thought ! Years later the mother died and I always told the son I would like to buy it, but he died in May of 2014. I never thought I would have a chance, so I asked his sister to buy it, but she had already sold to the city for flipper houses. But I continue on my quest to buy it. A lot of obstacles got in the way, but I was for sure this house was going to be ours. No matter what happen and I am happy to say it is ours. We have worked long hard hrs. to make the way it is now. A lot of people were skeptical, but I knew God would get us through it . We keep updating little things to make it more comfortable.

What makes this house unique

Nice neighbors, quiet neighborhood, it is a very cozy home that when you come in you don't want to leave. The views of the house are great because in each room you can see a view of the neighborhood and the yard. We kept everything in the house ,but up dated some of the areas. to make it look a updated from the 60's. We keep the birds fed in the back yard . When you come to the house you do not real have to do any thing .Except bring your own food, cook and cleanup and relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Boling's Family Retreat was a wonderful house. The house was very clean and cozy. We had a family reunion and played cards, and had just a wonderful time .We didn't want to leave . The back yard had everything you need including a place for the kids and dogs . Patio table and chairs , Fire pit and bench .They even had corn hole and horse shoes if you wanted to be outside . It was just an amazing home . We would love to come back next year .The owners were very nice and helpful

Bachelor Party Success!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a bachelor party weekend and weren't disappointed! Bruce and Renee were wonderful and they provided us with plenty of information about activities in the area and the house as well. We spent a lot of time in the backyard sitting at the table and around the fire, as well as, playing cornhole and the horseshoe Frisbee game which was fun! I highly recommend staying here!! We are even talking about making this a yearly guys trip.

We would loved to have you again if your girlfriends and wives will let you. If not you can bring them along or come as a couple . Renee and Bruce

Great little place!

  • 5 of 5

It was a nice little house, solid, remodeled, nice furniture and a fenced backyard where my dogs could walk and do dog things as long as I could stay out there with them. The owners even provided breakfast foods and beverages that we like. Convenient to the places we needed to be, and only about 3-4 miles from the state park on the lake. I loved that area. Wineries abound, and there's even a distillery in town that I didn't find out about until I got back.

The owners were pleasant, nice, and accommodating (we arrived late due to traffic issues). I would rent this place again in a heart-beat if I were going back there for any reason. And I may be - my new son-in-law is from Geneva!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples who enjoyed the quiet and great atmosphere. the house had all the amenities that we needed for the 2.5 days we were there. Our stay was short and we could not take advantage of the fire pit in the backyard but it will definitely be taken advantage next time. The owners made sure if we needed anything that they were available to assist. The house was in the perfect area; as we were minutes from the lake and minutes from the wineries. I would recommend this home to anyone.

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We all had really good time. Home was very clean and everything very comfortable. Was very convenient to all points of interest. Owners were great and very caring! Would stay there again. However we had young ones who wanted to swim and the weather was not cooperative.

Wonderful stay at the Boling's. This is a great house and it comfortably accommodated 11 of us.

  • 5 of 5

This was a trying time for our family as we were coming together from different parts of the country for our mom's surprise 90th birthday, but in the meantime mom was hospitalized. We were meeting at the Boling's and it happen to fall over Easter weekend. Renee had hidden Easter eggs for the grandchildren, there were plenty of games, the house was roomy, spotless and close to town. Renee made us feel extremely welcomed and was very helpful. Renee has stayed in touch, enquiring about mom. We would certainly stay with the Boling's again.

We didn't even know until a couple days before the birthday party was cancel for there mother. I didn't even realize that Easter was here that fast ,so i try to make it fun for all . We hope that they come back to visit

Great In-Town house

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. We were there in the middle of January so we couldn't take advantage of the back yard and it's amenities, but the rest of the home was perfect for our needs. The kitchen was well stocked and there were plenty of linens. Renee was wonderful to work with and had the house decorated so cute! This house is very close to the grocery store and not too far from several wineries. Internet and Direct TV worked well. I am checking the "tourists without a car" as we have a transportation service that takes us to local wineries.

Owner's Response: It was wonderful having guests just in time for winter .We do not have very many guests come during January, Febuary,March, or April months, so it was a joy to have you here enjoying yourselves. We hope you come back in the spring and bring your mom.
