The Owner purchased this cottage in 2004
Once we passed through the gates and discovered Lakeside in 1992, it became a touchstone for our family: de-stress at the end of the school year, set goals each fall, and PLAY in between -tennis, mini golf, board games, paint, read, walks, laughs, sunrises & sunsets, ice cream...or simply BE.
It gave us TIME to nurture the child in each of us as we built family memories. Our girls still return each summer (would never miss it!) and our young grandchildren continue the tradition. We love Lakeside and love to share its special magic!
You become a 'Lakesider' the moment you pass through the gate. It's a joyful place, 'The way the whole world ought to be!'
After 26 years of weekend Lakeside visits, three generations of my family came for a full week and it was marvelous! This immaculate Jasmine Cottage has plenty of room for family visiting OR alone-time, with the location ideal for allowing older kids and teens to safely wander through this serene Chautauqua community. On a quiet street which ends two doors away at Lake Erie, only one block from many activities and shops, we all had reason to enjoy, learn, engage and relax (especially on the roomy front porch). You can be very busy at Lakeside - or very lazy (I was both...). Jasmine has amenities many Lakeside Cottages do not: a dishwasher, garbage disposal, washer & dryer, bathrooms on both floors, THREE showers, new air conditioning downstairs, lake views, lots of dining areas inside & out and is well-decorated (no old cast-off dorm furniture here). Jayne and Rick could not be more gracious and go to great lengths to make sure your stay meets your needs. It is a true home-away-from-home...but with warm Patio donuts on a Lakeside bench in the morning and Hoover concerts at night! Thanks for the memories!
This was our first visit to Lakeside, and it was a couple of weeks after the season ended. We loved the tranquility and felt like we had the whole lakeshore to ourselves, although we did meet and talk to plenty of great people while bike riding and kite flying. The weather was quite cool, so next time we plan to come back in the summer.
My husband is not usually very opinionated about where we vacation but he has mentioned several times what a great time he had and that the house had a nice calm lake vibe, so we definitely want to book this house again for next year!
We have been going to Lakeside for the last 10 years. This cottage was by far the best place we have stayed at. The home was in such a great location and had Lake Views from the quiet street it sat on. The location of the home was also very close to all the downtown activities. We would get a cup of coffee and sit on the bench at the end of the road looking out at Lake Erie. It truly is an amazing view! The cottage itself was so nicely furnished and decorated! Having 2 bathrooms was ideal for my family of 5. It is light and airy and has an amazing front porch! There were plenty of sleeping spaces and my kids were excited to pick from all the different bedrooms. The washer and dryer were perfect after a day at the beach. Not only was the cottage amazing, the location beyond perfect, the owners were soooo great to work with. I have spent my career in customer service and Jayne is top notch!!! You will love Jasmine Lane!!
We enjoyed a wonderful week at Lakeside in this great location. The cottage had all the amenities we needed and more. Our family included 7 adults and two children and we had plenty of room. The cottage was so light and cheerful and we especially enjoyed the screened porch with views of the lake. The patio and picnic tables were great for our outdoor activities. It was wonderful to have a covered back porch to store coolers and other items not needed until departure. The kitchen was very well stocked - yeah, a dishwasher at Lakeside! We hope to enjoy this cottage in the future.
What a wonderful week with our very dear friends and family. This cottage had all the amenities we desired for our week at Lakeside. Plenty of sleeping quarters for all our adult children. The kitchen was fully equipped and there was plenty of seating available...inside, in the backyard patio and on the screened in porch. I can't think of anything we needed to make the week better. It was nice to be able to meet the owners to thank them in person for sharing their "cottage in paradise" with us.
