About Bruce and Renee Boling
Our names are Bruce and Renee Boling. We were high school sweethearts and have been married 42 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 41 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 Geneva
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.

House was perfect for a small bachlorette party. We had alot of space and loved the firepit. Renee provided a nice meat and cheese tray and beautiful flowers in the counter when we came in
The house was clean and cosy. Plenty of room to sleep and all needed for cooking.
We came for family get away with 2 dogs and enjoyed our stay in Renee and Bruce home. Renee was so kind to make Easter egg hunt and baked delicious Bunny Cake. She also prepared egg coloring kit for kids. That was very sweet. When we needed help with TV,Bruce came literally within 2 minutes! We explored the area well. I think we would enjoy it even more, considering that we came off season. The immediate area close to the house is pretty average for rural Ohio but the lake, the lodge, the covered bridges and the wineries are indeed very close. Thank you again,Renee and Bruce.
We enjoyed your stay. Having such successful professionals such as your husband and yourself and children was great .To show you the house and getting to know what you do . We love getting to know who we rent to even if they are only a hour away. We were glad you choose us for your stay. We had fun doing those things for your family. no matter what there stay is about . That is what Boling's Family Retreat is about .
Great place to stay
Great place to stay, has much more room than expected. We rented the home for a swimming event at the Spire institute. The house was very clean. We hope to stay there again next year.
Thank you ,so much for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.The house was well kept while you stayed and we appreciated that. We hope to see to next year or please come for a vacation .
Renee and Bruce offer wonderful hospitality, and a very well-equipt, clean, comfortable alternative to hotel rooms for large groups. They had a lovely bottle of chilled wine and a very thoughtful evening snack waiting for our arrival. There were plenty of bed linens and towels. The kitchen was spotless, and there were plenty of place settings for everyone. The location was in a nice, quiet neighborhood that was about 10 minutes from SPIRE Institute and less than 10 minutes to Geneva on the Lake. We enjoyed our stay so much that I'm planning another visit this summer! Thanks for everything, Renee and Bruce!
Thank you for renting our place .It was great to meet someone you know were you been before. With as many people you had it worked out fine ,and the house was clean just like we left it .We hope you guys come again this year
Very Nice Comfortable Home
We rented this house for a College Big East Swim Meet at the SPIRE Inst. We rented for 4 nights and needed a place close by since we'd be going back and forth and it was less then 10 mins. away. It was comfortable, very clean and roomy and had everything we needed. Really, we didn't need to bring anything, they had toilet paper, paper towels all the bed linens, towels, etc. They had a bottle of wine and breakfast food in the fridge waiting for us. I give it a 5 star rating. Would like to see this area in the summer.
Thank you, so much for staying at Boling's Family Retreat .We are glad you had a great stay. We love to get vacationers from all over the United States. To meet them and get to know why they are coming to visit in our area. Thank you again for the nice review
Cozy Christmas Stay
We were so bummed we had to stay at an airbnb for Christmas with our little boys until we pulled up to this adorable place! It was decorated inside and out for Christmas and had such a cozy feel. The basement had air hockey and foos-ball, the upstairs had board games and the kitchen was fully equipped for all baking and cooking needs. Renee went WAY above and beyond and even had her brother show up as Santa Christmas Eve and bring the boys some gifts. I was so happy with the whole stay and experience we may just do this every time we come to Cleveland!
My husband and I had a vision that we would have someone for Christmas. We didn't know who it was going to be ,but in my surprise, we got our vacation renters. Believe , it or not they had two little boys My husband and I decided that we would over do it we would get Santa and surprise the boys. Just to see the boys smiles on there faces made Christmas at the Boling's Family Retreat all worth while. Thank you, so much for the great review. We enjoy having your having here.
