About George Henshaw

George is an Ohio licensed real estate agent and always gets to see the best lake properties first. After looking throughout Northeast Ohio for ten years, he and his wife found this perfect 1,500 foot cottage on peaceful (boats limited to 9.9 horsepower) lake.

George Henshaw purchased this cottage in 2012

Why George Henshaw chose Ohio

We looked at Lake Erie properties but the problem is, without a horizon, it's boring to look at water only. We looked at larger lakes but the unlimited horsepower boats and jet skis make a relaxing visit impossible. We looked at smaller lakes but they're not much fun for boating. Just like Goldilocks would say, this lake is not too large, not too small but just right!

What makes this cottage unique

A lake house should be on the lake--better yet, should be on the beach. The Beach House at Guilford Lake is one of the few around that offers a level walk to the sandy beach (who wants a gravel Lake Erie beach?), an unobstructed view of the lake and more. With over 400 square feet of covered patios, rain or shine you can always enjoy your visit. Another 400 square feet of open patio means you can sunbathe in private. Most cottages are old--this one is new so you get all the comforts of a modern building right on the beach.

Absolutely fabulous! It is a wonderful weekend getaway for family and friends :)

  • 5 of 5

I could not say enough great things about my experiencing renting this property! The pictures do not do justice to the home. Once I opened the door to the home, I was completely stunned by how beautiful (and also clean) it was. I had rented the property for a graduation party. All of my guests kept telling me how breathtaking the home was! Aside from the property itself, Mr. Henshaw, his wife and cleaning lady were wonderful. When I showed up to the home, there were "Congratulations" signs hanging up! I never would have expected that added touch, but Mr. Henshaw and all really went above and beyond. I would love to rent the place next summer :) It is a nice escape from home, and the home has everything that we need for our stay! :)

Owner's Response: We operate this property primarily because we really enjoy making guests happy. Our objective is to promise much and deliver even more. It's always fun to hear guests upon entering say "Wow! the pictures don't do it justice". After they settle in they find that the extra touches and cleanliness put The Beach House above and beyond almost any other place they've stayed.

Beautiful and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house far exceeded our expectations. As stated in the description, you literally DO NOT have to take anything except your food and clothing. The owners have beautifully furnished and decorated the house, and everything is high quality. All furnishings were very comfortable. The owner greeted us upon arrival to show us around and give us some helpful tips. I cannot say enough about how happy we were with this rental and hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: From brand name dinnerware to brand name paper goods (such as Bounty and Charmin) we furnish plenty of top quality items. Want to sleep well? The three beds all feature top-of-the-line Original Mattress Factory mattresses. Simply, we want our guests to enjoy the same high quality items that they would choose for their own homes.

Very well maintained and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the house, property and the view! Kitchen had everything imaginable, furniture and beds comfy cozy but more important very very clean!

Rented a pontoon from Mark's Landing a few times, ate at Guilford grill (best Chef salad ever!!) and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. So peaceful and tranquil for your morning coffee time! We had a deer come up to our porch and say hello and enjoyed watching it swim and socialize with the people on the beach.

I will definitely go back and recommend this house. It helps too that George and Linda are great people to deal with!

Owner's Response: The reviews of The Beach House are uniform: "clean, everything there, we'll recommend". Simply, everything bought new for the place, top brands like Bounty, Charmin, Cascade, Dial, Original Mattress Factory top-of-the-line bedding; we don't want anything less for ourselves and certainly want our guests to enjoy the best. We really do have everything except food and clothes!

Amazingly well equipped !!!!

  • 5 of 5

The amenities at this house were top notch, from the toilet tissue to the towels to every utensil in the well stocked kitchen. They even had a large pasta pot, very important to us !!!!! Owners were very friendly and helpful. The whole house was sparkling clean. The proximity to the lake couldn't have been better. Our whole stay was better than expected, so comfortable and fit our family of six perfectly. The owners have done an amazing job of making our stay perfect. We shall certainly recommend the lake house to friends and family. The pictures accurately depicted the property. We Loved It !!!!!

Everything and More!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House is one of the best rentals we have seen. We were there for a girls weekend and were so elated about the look, the appeal, the appearance, the stocking, the ENTIRE house! We have been renting homes for 6 years and this one is the "ONE" that we will continue to come back to. The area is quiet and away from the busy city. The lake is clean and spacious. The Beach House has EVERYTHING that you could possibly need. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was beyond stocked. The owners have thought of YOU when they stock it. I would give a review of beyond 5 if they would let me. I highly recommend this house for a long weekend, week, or even a month. 14 thumbs up, since there were 7 of us!

Owner's Response: What a great review! We're delighted to be the new girls getaway for yet another wonderful group of guests. We do what we do because we want to be Bob Newhart hosts that we all enjoyed in the 1980's; the actors had a lot of fun making folks happy and we do, too.
