Comfortable Lakefront Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Had a group of five stay here for a long weekend. House was very comfortable, well equipped, and Patti and Tony were easy to work with and very accommodating. The lake was beautiful, and the room layout worked well for us.

Private and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the lake house. It was very clean and bright with a large yard for outdoor games and fun. Great access to the lake right from the yard.

Patti was very nice and accommodating.

Great Times and Amazing Sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a nice house with a beautiful view of the lake, look no further. Chef Tony's house is a great place for a family to spend time relaxing. The kitchen has everything you need, the 3 bedrooms are large enough, huge dining room, and 2 appropriate bathrooms. Though this is not a luxurious house, it is one of the nicest ones we found in the area to rent and it was very clean. All floors are hard surfaces, no carpets, which makes it a plus. There is a great bbq on the patio as well. We hired Chef Tony for one night and the meal was amazing! Truly gourmet meal that we'll remember for many years. If we return to the area, no doubt we will rent this house again.

Beautiful Cabin, Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

First impression after walking in the door was, "Wow!" It was a beautiful cabin that has a great view of the lake. There is a nice little beach to walk to from the front yard. The cabin is very spacious, there were 6 of us staying comfortably. The lady who runs it, Patty, is extremely nice, even picking fresh grapes for us when we arrived. It's great for a weekend getaway, with a winery right down the street. I would highly recommend staying here!

Great waterfront stay

  • 5 of 5

Chef Tony put on a show and served up a terrific 5 course meal for my group and I. The house was clean and right on the water. The huge backyard was a big plus for playing games during the day too.

Fantastic, Fabulous, Fun Lakefront Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This lakefront getaway in Ripley is truly a gem! Patty and Tony have done a fabulous job remodeling the house which sits on a beautiful property with direct beach access! Patty was most responsive to my inquiries and was more than accommodating with the check-in and out! The house is beautiful, bright, very comfortable, and includes everything we needed for a most enjoyable visit. The large yard provides a place for yard games or just sitting in the shade while gazing at a fabulous Lake Erie sunset. The beach was wonderful and very accessible- no long flights of stairs to get there! I have never felt more comfortable in a rental property.

We took advantage of Chef Tony's gourmet dinner option and we were delighted with the entire experience. Tony and Cindy shared the history of the property with us and entertained us with interesting stories as they prepared and served one of the best 5 course meals I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying! The wine pairings were superb and definitely added to the overall deliciousness of the food and the evening! Thank you Tony and Cindy!

Thank you Patty and Tony for sharing your Lakefront Gem with us. We will definitely be returning again and again! The overall experience was stellar!
