About Bruce and Renee Boling

Our names are Bruce and Renee Boling. We were high school sweethearts and have been married 42 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 41 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.

Perfect for our family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Renee was there to greet us with snacks and a quick tour to make sure we knew where everything was and how things worked. They respected our privacy during our stay but were very responsive when we had questions. When we called with a minor shower issue, they came very quickly and fixed it immediately. The house was very clean and there were lots of extra towels, pillows, etc. if needed.

Our two dogs loved the fenced yard and we enjoyed just hanging out on the patio. We didn't get a chance to take advantage of the fire pit, cornhole or other outdoor activities, but hope to be back for a longer stay! The basement area was a great space for kids, but it was pretty chilly, so although we watched a family movie downstairs one rainy afternoon, our girls opted to sleep on the sun porch. There was plenty of room for our family of five - could easily accommodate more.

The neighborhood was quiet and an easy 8-minute drive to the shops and restaurants on the Geneva strip. Also about 5 minutes from the state park and beach. There's a nice, well-stocked Dollar General about two miles up the road if you need milk, sunscreen, etc. We heard a train in the distance multiple times a day (and night), so if you're a really light sleeper, you may want to bring ear plugs just in case. The kids and I slept fine, though.

Definitely liked coming home to a quiet, relaxing space after the craziness of the strip. Would recommend this house to friends and family and would definitely stay again.

The house was clean and cosy. Plenty of room to sleep and all needed for cooking.

  • 4 of 5

We came for family get away with 2 dogs and enjoyed our stay in Renee and Bruce home. Renee was so kind to make Easter egg hunt and baked delicious Bunny Cake. She also prepared egg coloring kit for kids. That was very sweet. When we needed help with TV,Bruce came literally within 2 minutes! We explored the area well. I think we would enjoy it even more, considering that we came off season. The immediate area close to the house is pretty average for rural Ohio but the lake, the lodge, the covered bridges and the wineries are indeed very close. Thank you again,Renee and Bruce.

Great place to stay

Great place to stay, has much more room than expected. We rented the home for a swimming event at the Spire institute. The house was very clean. We hope to stay there again next year.
