This is the perfect space for a girls' getaway. I stayed here with two friends and it was just the right size for us. The neighborhood is walkable, with cafes and shops nearby. We took the ferry to Kelly's Island and spent the day there. Because it was off season, some places were closed but we found plenty to do! Check out the cute local bookstore and Oh La La for delicious quiche.

Once connecting with Elizebeth she was a most gracious host and told us about the leaky shower and she was getting it fixed after our stay. She went and got a wine opener immediately when it was discovered not in the kitchen. The biggest thing going for this place is the location within the Lakeside community.

Elizabeth was great about contacting us and coordinating our arrival. The two bedrooms and kitchen in this apartment were charmingly decorated. It was comfortable, clean, and quiet and within easy walking distance from downtown and activities. Elizabeth left plenty of food for us for breakfast which we appreciated! We would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Lakeside. It is just a fantastic place to spend time with your family. The apartment is in a great location. It had a nice sized kitchen that worked very well for us. Everything is within a short walk and yet it is not in a busy area. Our hostess was friendly and accommodating. She made sure that we had everything we needed and that we were happy. We look forward to returning to Lakeside soon!

I am an Eclectic, FREE SPIRITED individual, who loves to MEET NEW and INTERESTING PEOPLE. I have traveled extensively throughout the US and Europe. I'm half Hungarian,born on the same day that Mother Teresa was. I beleive in Honesty, and transparency.

After living in Los Angeles, a city of 14 Million people, for 18 years, I've really come to love Lakeside. No hustle and bustle here. No concrete jungles. The peace and serenity it brings to one is unlike any other place I've come across in Ohio. There's no amount of money that Could ever buy what Nature has been so kind to give us.
The gorgeous gardens are absolutely breathtaking. The cottages are unique, and meticulously maintained. The people are down to earth and friendly. Children are safe as they wheel their bikes through this 15mph ' slo go' magical kingdom. My ultimate favorite is watching the sun set on the Pier. It is TRULY, the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen! PINK sunsets unfold, as dusk falls upon us. I'd love to share this God given gift with you.
