Why Renee Reid chose Conneaut Lakeshore
You just can't come to the Lake and not fall in love with it. We have made life-long friendships with some of the kindest, funnest, most wonderful people in the whole world at this little lake. Even though we travel quite a bit, some of our happiest memories and most treasured family time have been here. The tranquility of the early mornings, and the party-like atmosphere into the night, make our location the perfect spot for whatever you are looking for in a vacation. There's lots going on to join in, or there is little more to do than relax and enjoy...the choice is yours. Families summer at Conneaut lake for generations, and once you visit you'll understand why. Don't be surprised if you find yourself making your way back again and again!!!
What makes this Cottage unique
Our home is not, by any means, a four-star hotel or luxury resort. We do not have central air conditioning, as it is not an option in our cottage. The Black Duck has always been our family summer home and we prepare lunches and dinners outdoors cooking on the grill. I don't even have an oven because we spend very little time in the kitchen and I would never bake or roast in the summer. The Black Duck is a modest cottage that can accommodate lots of people. It has big beautiful outdoor spaces, great sleeping accommodations and even better common areas for entertaining. While we have updated our home in many ways and could continue to do so by adding more bathrooms, etc., we realize that it would eventually ruin the original character of the cottage. That is something that we are not willing to do. Our home is incredibly lovely and meant to be enjoyed in a kick back, unfussy, down-to-earth way.... if what is most important to you is breathtaking views of the lake, a casual atmosphere and an amazing place for your children to enjoy, this is the perfect spot for you.

Comfortable lake house
We had a great time at the house. Our daughter got married at the hotel and we had our family there to celebrate. The house was very comfortable, and everyone would like to return for a family vacation during the summer. Thank-you for everything
Loved the Cottage Charm!
A beautiful lakefront property that suited our needs perfectly. A spacious open floor plan perfect for conversation with plenty of seating and a large dining table for eating and games, and an extra fridge were just some of the pluses. We spent much time on the back deck enjoying the water, weather, and the beautiful view. The neighbors were very friendly and Renee and Denise were quick with responses. The small countertop oven was a challenge but we are always up for an adventure and managed a birthday cake, lasagna and peach cobble in the oven. I agree with the review that mentioned the cottage could use a little TLC from the maintenance side but we would rent it again and highly recommend it to others.
Great space for family gathering!
We had a great time staying at the Black Duck. The home is cozy and comfortable. Renee the owner and Denise the property manager were very accommodating. Our large extended family stayed at the home during for a family wedding in the area. The beds were comfortable and the view from the deck was lovely. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks for the background for great memories!
Great house right on the lake!
The Black Duck was exactly what our group was looking for. We have an annual trip to Conneaut Lake, and this house provided housing for our whole group and was right on the water. Newly updated features without sacrificing the lake cottage vibe. Will definitely return next year.
Beautiful location and house
Location was perfect, near the Park, good fishing, nice dock, house had everything except an oven, no problems. Air conditioning and open windows at night were sufficient. The neighbors were very nice but only there for the weekend, very quiet during the week. Loved it and would like to book again next year.
Wonderful property on a beautiful lake!
We used to own a home on Conneaut Lake and it had been years since we had been back. The Black Duck was a wonderful "gathering place" for our family that traveled from near and far to spend time together. The home is beautiful and spacious and well appointed. Needs a bit of TLC from a maintenance side but would highly recommend. Thank you for a wonderful vacation and the sunny weather was a plus!

Additional information about rental rates
BR 1/Queen - 2 pers BR 2/Queen - 2 pers BR 3/Queen + Crib - 2 pers plus infant BR 4/Queen + Twin - 3 pers BR 5/3 Twins - 3 pers BR 6/King - 2 pers Maximum occupancy based upon above. * RESERVATIONS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. WE RECOMMEND CANCELLATION INSURANCE THROUGH VRBO OR OTHER 3RD PARTY PROVIDER. * Saturdays are one of the best days at the lake and we think it is a shame to close up the cottage for a day of cleaning. Therefore, we schedule our high-season weeks from Friday to Friday so you can enjoy a full weekend during your stay. * While The Black Duck is our home and it is understood that everything will not be perfect, we strive to provide a high-end experience for our visitors. Therefore we provide linens, a few amenities, enough pantry items/sundries/paper goods to get you started, and we have the home professionally cleaned and prepared for each stay. Because of the way we like to leave our home for you, the cost is substantially more than most properties. We are sure you will agree that it is reasonable to offset this with a one-time cleaning and re-stocking surcharge. If you use three bedrooms or less, we are more than happy to waive this fee. *** Our home is meant to provide a place for you to stay during your vacation. It is not an event venue or recreational facility. Parties and large numbers of guests are not permitted during your stay. The Black Duck was built in 1909 and is not able to sustain this type of wear and tear (the plumbing, especially, can not withstand excessive use). Additionally, the home is filled with our personal belongings and furniture which is not intended to be used in this way. * Please leave our home the way you found it. An additional $100.00 fee will be charged if unusually excessive cleaning is necessary after your departure.
