About Jackie or Darin
Locally owned and operated since 2001. The place has been in the family since the 60's. We lived there while our daughters were small until we decided to start sharing the magnificent place with others.
Why Jackie or Darin chose Lakeside
It's quiet, private, beautiful and allows one to relax & rejuvenate for a week.

It is located right on the water. You can see the islands in every direction and fish without leaving the yard.

Cute little cottage, great view....Needs a little TLC over-all perfect little get-a-way
Nice little house that met our needs for a week of fishing.
The house and location was perfect for what we were looking for.
Little house on the lake
We had a great time. We come to Lakeside every year for a conference for my husband’s work. We have stayed in several cabins through out the years and this was one of the best. Jackie and Darin were very easy to get a hold of, if needed, and very friendly. We had a lovely stay. Thanks!
Darin and Jackie were wonderful to work with. The place is great and we are excited to come back.
Loved staying here. The kids loved fishing and paddle boating. We had lots of fun and would recommend it to others.
A little slice of Paradise...
We rented the Little House on the Lake for a family reunion two weeks ago and it was perfect. The huge yard, fishing out front, fire pit in the midst of the sandy area, comfy porch furniture, and the view made for many "it doesn't get much better than this" moments.
Beautiful views at the Little House on the Lake
We enjoyed our week at the little house on the lake. The scenery was quiet and refreshing. There is a dock where you can sun or fish and a small sandy area for kids to play or where you can use the fire pit. The water in front of the cottage is perfect for canoeing or paddle boating and has easy access to the larger part of Lake Erie.
The floors and bedding were clean. There were a lot of areas beside, behind and under that could use more attention. I would suggest that you bring additional linens, towels and washcloths. We chose to use the option of having the linens and towels provided ($50) but had to go to the laundry mat to get through the week (there were three of us). There were no linens for the futons.
Cottage needs some updating (windows, screens and doors, etc). The kitchen and appliances are tiny but functional. The bathroom sink is a little challenging. The internet service is good. There is a covered porch at the front of the house that is great for morning coffee.
We had a nice relaxing stay. It would have been helpful to have had an informational sheet regarding where things were located, how to use the tv and internet (password), what to do with garbage, where to find keys for the doors, contact phone numbers, etc. I was able to get the needed information by contacting or texting the owner but a quick handy reference would have been great.
Overall, it seems the little house by the lake is a great for accommodating vacationers who desire a fishing/water-sport cottage with easy access to Lake Erie.
We are so glad that you had a nice stay. I apologize if there were things that you felt were not unavailable to you. I do feel the need to address a few things though so there isn't confusion for future guests. We keep a large stash of additional linens, towels and blankets for futons in the large drawers below the other linen cupboard so no one should ever have to go to the laundromat during their stay. The WIFI password is on the WIFI box itself as are instructions for all tv usage on the DVD/cable boxes. We also keep a ton of brochures of area restaurants/businesses on the table & in the front room. The home is an original cottage that has a long unique history so we choose to keep the antique windows/doors. The size & images of each room are posted on the website to make sure our guests can see it is a summer lake cottage & not an overly large place. Our contact numbers are also in the notebook on the table and keys hang right on the key rack at the front door. I try to be very thorough when I greet our guests & cover all details. Maybe you did not catch some of the info at that time. We also make ourselves available 24/7 for any questions/concerns as we did during your stay. I wish I would have been contacted if there was anything further needed & to clear up any confusion. We take great pride in hosting guests & do everything possible to make their stay as perfect as possible. Should you stay with us again in the future, I will be sure to point out some of the details that I believe were missed during your stay. We hope you were able to relax a bit & let our Little House on the Lake provide a short get away from the stressors of life for you and your party. 😊�
