About Bruce and Renee Boling

Our names are Bruce and Renee Boling. We were high school sweethearts and have been married 41 years. We have two sons, daughter -in-law, one grandson, and a dog named Adam. Bruce is an auto body technician and I am a jack of all trades and a master of none. We work well together at everything we do and have lived in Ohio all our lives. As a matter of fact we live right next to our vacation rental home. We have lived here in Geneva for 39 years and have worked hard for everything we have because we love the area!

Bruce and Renee Boling purchased this house in 2014

Why Bruce and Renee Boling chose Geneva

When we moved to Geneva, Ohio we thought it was a great area with a nice quiet neighborhood. After a couple days, I met our new neighbor, Hazel Jeppe. She lived on the left side of us and was around 85 years old. She invited me into her "Florida room" or "Sun room", which was at the back of the house. This is where she would spend most of her time to sit and relax. I can see why! Ever since then I wanted to buy it ,but couldn't because for one thing we didn't have the money and someone else bought which was my old landlord: Who would of thought ! Years later the mother died and I always told the son I would like to buy it, but he died in May of 2014. I never thought I would have a chance, so I asked his sister to buy it, but she had already sold to the city for flipper houses. But I continue on my quest to buy it. A lot of obstacles got in the way, but I was for sure this house was going to be ours. No matter what happen and I am happy to say it is ours. We have worked long hard hrs. to make the way it is now. A lot of people were skeptical, but I knew God would get us through it . We keep updating little things to make it more comfortable.

What makes this house unique

Nice neighbors, quiet neighborhood, it is a very cozy home that when you come in you don't want to leave. The views of the house are great because in each room you can see a view of the neighborhood and the yard. We kept everything in the house ,but up dated some of the areas. to make it look a updated from the 60's. We keep the birds fed in the back yard . When you come to the house you do not real have to do any thing .Except bring your own food, cook and cleanup and relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Boling's Family Retreat was a wonderful house. The house was very clean and cozy. We had a family reunion and played cards, and had just a wonderful time .We didn't want to leave . The back yard had everything you need including a place for the kids and dogs . Patio table and chairs , Fire pit and bench .They even had corn hole and horse shoes if you wanted to be outside . It was just an amazing home . We would love to come back next year .The owners were very nice and helpful

Bachelor Party Success!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a bachelor party weekend and weren't disappointed! Bruce and Renee were wonderful and they provided us with plenty of information about activities in the area and the house as well. We spent a lot of time in the backyard sitting at the table and around the fire, as well as, playing cornhole and the horseshoe Frisbee game which was fun! I highly recommend staying here!! We are even talking about making this a yearly guys trip.

Nicely locacated for our wine touring weekend. The house was fully equipped. Plenty of beds for everyone and a nice backyard with a firepit and corn hole which was very nice for in the evening. The owner also welcomed us with wine, a platter of cheese, sausage and crackers.

Review of our stay at Mr & Mrs Boling's Geneva | Property ID 719848

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend stay at this property. The home is completely furnished and provided all the amenities necessary for an enjoyable stay. It is conveniently located, near all of the places we wanted to visit, e.g., Geneva-on-the-Lake, 19 covered bridges and numerous wineries in the local area. The property is "pet friendly," which was a major factor in our renting the property. Our hosts, Mr and Mrs Boling, went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

Rental Home with Beautiful Yard

  • 3 of 5

The fenced in yard with the patio furniture and the fire pit area is very very nice. The landscaping is beautiful with dinner plate dahlias being the showcase. It was convenient for us to let our dogs out loose in the backyard. That was the main reason we chose this property.

The house was very clean. Many games and diversions are provided. A few suggestions I would provide to make a stay more pleasant: Place all of the rules and instructions together with the welcome book rather than signs posted everywhere. Clear off some of the tables or dressers so that there are places to put things. Thank you.
