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 1,300 foot cottage on peaceful (boats limited to 9.9 horsepower) lake.
George Henshaw purchased this cottage in 2012
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!
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.
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! :)
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!
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!
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 !!!!!
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!
We were absolutely delighted when we walked into the beautiful Beach House. It was immaculately clean, the décor was darling and it was so well stocked with everything you will need for a fun and relaxing vacation! The only thing you need to bring is shampoo, a toothbrush and paste and your clothes! The beds are so comfortable and the kitchen spacious and fully stocked with every appliance you will need to cook any meal. We enjoyed and ate all our meals on the tables facing the lake. The clean beach is feet away from the lakeside door. It was so relaxing to watch all the early morning fish jump and various ducks and birds on the beach before any activity started. Sunsets and sunrises are amazing!
George and Linda were so gracious and helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat and shop. We rented a pontoon boat one afternoon from Mark's Landing....very reasonable and fun but do not eat at that restaurant! (worse food we have ever eaten...George warned us!) Definitely go up to Salem for great food and shopping. We had our adult children with us and none of us wanted to leave , as it is the most wonderful home and location. If you have young children, there are many kids beach toys and our daughters enjoyed the lounging chairs provided to sunbath. There is a fabulous gas fire pit to relax by after dusk and roast marsh mellows! (Linda even provides marsh mellows for her guests!) If you like to grill, the gas grill is spotlessly clean! I could go on and on about all the amenities and luxury of The Beach House....you will have to come yourself to experience all it has to offer! We will be coming back next year for sure and stay longer!
Thank you so much Linda and George for making our vacation so relaxing and enjoyable and for sharing your beautiful home with us!
