  • The home was clean and exactly as presented. We enjoyed the stay. Fritz was most cordial and a pleasure to deal with. He was responsive to communication before and during our trip. We highly recommend his home without reservation.

  • The house exceeded our expectations. Our dogs and grand kids loved running around the large fenced yard. Peninsula is a quaint town with bike rentals and easy access to the Tow Path trail and historic canal structures.
    We had several unexpected special touches: super high quality matresses and pillows, premium coffee and appliances and a spotlessly clean house. Also just a short drive to Hudson, one of Ohio's Western Reserve Villages with great dining and a world-class grocery store.

    Along with that, Fritz was very professional, timely and polite. We will definitely stay here again when we are in Northeast Ohio.

  • We rented this house to setup a home base over the holidays as we visited with family in the Cleveland and Canton areas. It was absolutely perfect. Our experience with our host was wonderful. They were so accommodating - we arrived at night in the rain and we were greeted by Fritz. He brought coffee for the morning and extra dog towels, which was so appreciated. The house was more than we expected - warm, clean, and cozy. The area and property are amazing - our dogs loved playing in the backyard. We look forward to returning! Many thanks again to our wonderful hosts.

  • Fritz has a lovely home just on the edge of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It is well-maintained (immaculate, even) and well worth the stay. The location could not be better either. Within a quick bike ride of the Ohio & Erie Towpath, this is a great destination for anyone who loves nature or fitness. Bring your bike! Thank you Fritz for a great stay!

  • My family (which includes two small children and one dog) and I had a wonderful weekend at this home earlier this month. This house is not far from Ohio Turnpike and was relatively easy for us to find from our Turnpike exit. We were not familiar with this area before our trip and now understand the appeal to nature lovers and runners/cyclists. Bike rentals are nearby and the National Park is close (as advertised). We did not notice any noise from the train (I wondered about this before booking this rental). The local train stop was convenient but not too close. In addition to nearby sections of the Park, we liked exploring the town of Hudson where we shopped and picked up groceries.
    We also had a great experience at this charming house. The interior has been nicely updated and was clean. The beds were very comfortable. Our dog and daughter really enjoyed running in the large fenced backyard. We all enjoyed the patio area, too. As advertised, this house was private though the hosts were friendly and helpful. We felt as if we were at the edge of nature though amenities were not too far away. A nice getaway from our usually hectic lives!
