This property has been in our family for 60 years. It has recently, within the last 14 months, undergone a major remodel. It has a wonderful location, lakefront, no cliff, beach to walk and a waterfall very close. Across the street is a winery and restaurant.
Upon request and additional charge Chef Anthony will prepare a 5 course gourmet dinner with wine paring or a champagne breakfast in the morning. Please contact us for additional details. Truly, an experience not to miss.
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!
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.
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!
Perfect location for our family of 7 who attended a wedding in Ripley. The house was clean, spacious and beautifully remodeled, with lots of natural light and 2 full bathrooms... which is hard to find along the lake. Many just have 1 bathroom. The lake view was beautiful and the location was private and peaceful. Patty, the owner, was so thoughtful, responsive and accomodating every step of the way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We would definitely stay there again if in the area. Highly recommend this Lakefront Getaway!
Stayed at this home for a long weekend of wine tasting. Three couples had more than enough room to spread out. The yard down to the lake is very large and flat, would be good for kids playing games. The shoreline is rocky not sandy, but the stones are smooth so it didn't bother my feet. Some people might like to wear water shoes. The house has three beach chairs, take more if you need them. Owners are great with communication and answering questions. The closest winery has wine ice cream, yep, wine ice cream. It is delicious! If I travel back to the area, I won't bother trying to find somewhere else to rent, I would stay at this property again.
