About April

My family & I enjoy going to the local Break Water Beach & we love Jet Skiiing, Paddle Boarding & Kayaking on Lake Erie. Lake Erie is such an asset, we would like others to come and enjoy all there is to do here.

April purchased this cottage in 2014

Why April chose Geneva-on-the-Lake

This cottage is on a quiet street with a wooded back yard yet close enough to walk to the strip.

What makes this cottage unique

I just love the feel of this 1955 cottage. The back porch is a relaxing place to hang out in the evening or have that morning cup of coffee.

Adorable Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautifully decorated, very clean, and the kitchen had everything that we needed. There were 10 of us staying for the weekend and it was a very comfortable space, not cramped at all. It was a huge help that there were two full bathrooms and I feel like the space in the cottage is used very well. The ladder is a little bit steep, but we had no problems with it. I overlooked in the contract that we needed to bring our own toilet paper, but that was my mistake and a quick fix. Overall we had a wonderful weekend and I was very impressed. I definitely recommend this rental and would stay again!

Comfy, Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Within the first ten minutes of arriving at Dogwood, I called the owner to find out what other properties she owned. That is how impressed I was with the cleanliness and decor of the cottage. Loved the back porch and the comfortable beds. We were 6 adults staying here, and I believe it is more suited for four adults and 4 or more children due to the fact that opening the sofa bed takes up quite a bit of space. Pleasantly surprised at how convenient the location is. Close to strip, park, and a short drive to town of Geneva. Highly recommend staying at any property owned by April. It is obvious that she values her guests and does all that she can to ensure a comfortable, fun stay.

Very nice; well done!

  • 5 of 5

Cute, quaint little cottage. Six of us (seniors) stayed comfortably. Bit of a steep-ladder-like-climb to the upstairs loft but we managed. Also, didn't realize from the contract that toilet paper needed to be brought... no big deal, just we totally missed that between toiletries and paper products (our bad).

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The backyard was great. We really enjoyed sitting around the fire. The house was super. Only recommendation would be a railing for the stairway. It's steep! Otherwise, everything we usually had to take was already there!

Clean, cute, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was really cute, great location overall. It has everything you need in the kitchen, ample amount of towels, and bedding. Definitely bring paper products there was only enough toilet paper for one person to go to the bathroom one time.. April was quick to respond to any questions I had. Perfect cottage if you want to be within walking distance of the strip!
