Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Lakeside - 608 Elm St

3 bed, sleeps 10, weekly summer rentals, golf cart rental available $30 per day

Weekly summer rentals at Lakeside Chautauqua, 608 Elm ave. . This charming 3 bedroom cottage retreat sleeps 10. We built this cottage as our own home in 2002 with all the modern amenities yet keeping true to that Old Lakeside charm. Spacious family room and open kitchen are great for family entertaining. Formal dinning room for large family gatherings. Huge screened porch perfect for lounging or enjoying an outdoor meal. Master has queen bed with private bath and walk in closet. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms both have single/double bunk sets. There is a pull day bend with trundle in the living room. The cottage has central air + washer/dryer for your convenience. Sleeps 10. dvd. Two cars off street parking.

We now offer golf cart rental for our privately owned on site golf cart. The rental rate is $30 per day. If you are renting it must be for the total number of days for your stay. For example, a 3 day stay has a 3 day rental. Compare this to rates at the community bike shop, which offers rentals for over $80 a day, $147 for 3 days and $290 for a week, including taxes this is over $300 and our cart would be $210 inclusive for a weekly rental. Our cart is a 4 person cart

Lakeside is a hidden gem in northeast Ohio. It is a gated Chautauqua community encompassing mind, body and spirit with a large range of daily programming and nightly entertainment in the 3,000 seat Hoover Auditorium.

About Larry Schottenstein

We are long term Lakeside residents who have built 10 cottages as investments. This one is unique and was built as our own home and we are now renting it on a limited basis. Our children have spent their entire childhoods growing up every summer in Lakeside. My wife and I had a restaurant for a few years in Lakeside, Summer Stock, and she has opened a larger full service restaurant in Columbus, www.ella-restaurant.com Due to family growing older and the restaurant we are not in Lakeside all summer any more. We envite you to enjoy our summer home and create your own memories.

Larry Schottenstein purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Larry Schottenstein chose Ohio

This home offers an affordable alternative to what is typically available in Lakeside without compromising your comfort and enjoyment. The home was built in 2002 and combines modern features like central air, on site washer and dryer to make your stay comfortable. We also custom built this cottage as our own home so you don't compromise that cottage feel. We have wood flooring, bead board walls, large front porch, huge screened in porch for outdoor dinning. With our home you will avoid an old and musty cottage maintained as a rental over the years or it won't have central a/c and can be hot to say the least.

Plus we offer a on site golf cart at a rate of $30 per day or up to $210 per week, compare to the community golf cart rental of $80 per day or $290 plus taxes for a week. Our cart is a 4 person cart.

What makes this cottage unique

A summer vacation where you don't have to lock your doors. Something to do for everyone. We are around the corner from the tennis complex with free group lessons, close to the Rhein arts center which is popular for it's offering of art classes, you can check the little ones in at God Squad or at the play ground or enjoy the pier and lake front as a family. Close to all the Islands and Cedar Point.

You may also rent our on site golf cart for $30 per night or $210 per week. Compare to community golf cart rental at $80 per day or $300 per week

Newer home but has not been maintained very well.

  • 3 of 5

Fridge leaked even though we made sure doors were always shut tightly & fridge did not maintain a very cold setting, ant infested, air conditioning was nice but did not cool the upstairs due to so much furniture covering the vents in the tiny bedrooms., one bed was held up by cinder blocks, ply wood refrigerator shelf, only one outside trash can, mattress pads were worn, dirty & needed replaced. Our family has rented many vacation homes in the past. For the money this one was disappointing. Loved Lakeside!

Owner's Response: Sandy, thanks for your comments. She is right, this one got off to the wrong start. My cleaner and I screwed up on our communication and the house was not cleaned prior to their arrival. Generally we have had great comments on the home and the condition, this was not how we like to start of your stay.

Nice escape in beautiful Lakeside!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, three young children and I thoroughly enjoyed our late summer escape to Lakeside. We're from a Cleveland suburb, and wanted something close as our youngest is not into long car rides. We found Larry's house and booked almost immediately. The house was well equipped for all of our needs and the weather was perfect for both screen porch meals and lounging on the front rockers, when we weren't walking all over Lakeside. The village itself is very walk-able, incredibly kid friendly, and truly made us feel like we were on vacation (although we were pretty close to home). We would definitely stay here again!

We have rented various cottages and homes at Lakeside for the last 7 years and this is by far the best ever. Top notch. No complaints.

Wonderful house! Wonderful week! Wonderful Lakeside!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house at 608 Elm Ave, Lakeside, months ago so that we could enjoy Lakeside during the summer season. That is when there are daily activities, lectures, movies, and nightly entertainment. It was our intent to really 'experience Lakeside,' and we accomplished that goal. We wanted a house with central air conditioning and more than one bathroom. We kept going back to this rental and were glad we decided to rent it. The house looks just like the pictures. There is no TV (other than one hooked up to a DVD player) but the WIFI worked great - so we'd recommend taking your computer and maybe a radio. Because it's located in the back corner of the community, we rented a golf cart for the week.

It was very hot and humid during our week so the front porch (with rockers) and the screened in porch (with a table and chairs) didn't get used too much. Our favorite part of the downstairs was the room next to the kitchen with the two oversized floral chairs - they were extremely comfortable. Upstairs it had to be the master bedroom suite with the double sinks, large soaking tub, and walk-in closet. Another nice feature is that almost every room has a ceiling fan (including all three bedrooms). We cooked almost all our meals in the well stocked kitchen or on the outside charcoal grill.

When you get an email from HomeAway relating to 608 Elm Ave, be sure to open every icon and read the information. If we had done that we would have known (1) you have to bring your own linens (2) the wifi password (3) the procedure for dealing with trash (4) there are no TV channels or cable. The owner patiently and quickly answered these questions when I emailed him.

We hope you can tell how much we enjoyed our week at 'our Lake'. We cannot wait to return.

wonderful home. Liked watching finches

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husbands. 70th birthday here. Spacious dining room and another table on Side porch.

Master suite was very nice, just. Wish it were on the first floor. Definitely recommend this home! No TV which ended up being a blessing!

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is spacious and open. The part we enjoyed the most is the wrap around porch. Plenty of sleeping accommodations and large kitchen, 3 bathrooms, and washer/dryer/dishwasher. Even with 4 kids and 4 adults, there was lots of space and sitting areas.
