About John Rader

We are real estate agents who enjoy the hospitality of single family homes in vacationland. We also live in Lakeside year round and our whole family loves it.

John Rader purchased this house in 2013

Why John Rader chose Lakeside

This home has always been a year round home with many update and it has community playground in back yard 2 block from Rhien center where all children's activities take place and only steps away from walking trails. 3 blocks from Hoover auditorium. 400 yards to tennis courts and senior exercise complex.We always wanted to purchase inside the gates of Lakeside but could never afford it but then a neighbor wanted to trade us for our house in Port Clinton and we jumped at the chance.It was our primary residence until we built our present home next door.

What makes this house unique

Sleeps 8. Large yard. Screened porch with swing plenty of parking. 2 baths. New appliances. Includes linens. cable tv several bikes included fire pit beautiful woods behind home for great games of hide and seek. New health center is located only 200 yards from home.Our home is not decorated like a rental as we kept every thing as though we were living there and we especially enjoyed large swing and screened in porch.We also have lots of windows which lets plenty of sunshine in.Home has many hardwood floors open stair way and high ceilings to give you old world feel with new updates such as all new wiring to code to include hard wired smoke detectors.We are on a nice hill among many lovely homes that have recently been built on this tranquil street.

Worked for us

  • 3 of 5

This was our first cottage rental at Lakeside, we usually do the hotel. It did the job. It was nice to have a home base for our stay Upgrades were helpful. Owner was responsive and accessible. Plenty of parking for us and room to invite some friends to stop by. This property is at the top of the Jasmine so do not consider if you’re trying to be close to the center of town. But it was nice being close to the new pool .The cottage was clean but did feel a bit unkempt. There was clutter on the porch and in other nooks and crannies of the cottage. the grill was pretty small and dirty, the contents and provisions in the kitchen drawers and cabinets were a bit random and sparse but just enough to be creative and get the job done. The rooms and bathrooms were fairly clean and ready for us. Water pressure was low in showers but they did the job. Overall a decent stay. Just know that If you book, just don’t have high expectations.

Perfect combination of old and new

  • 4 of 5

Nicely updated house but retains the historic home feel. Spacious bedrooms. Love the master bathroom - nice size room for getting ready. Fire pit is a plus. Could use a few more cooking supplies but we managed. John is a nice guy who lives next door so is immediately available if issues arise. Ample linens and towels available. Laundry room was helpful to have on site. Loved the challenge of biking up the big hill to the house - great work out!

Our stay was too short!

  • 5 of 5

Our mini vacation to Blueberry Hill in Lakeside was just perfect, but it went by too quickly. The house had plenty of room for all. The little den with the pullout sofa bed even had a door for privacy, so it was like an extra bedroom. Two separate sinks in the master bath was nice, too. The kitchen was spacious and nicely updated. We didn't cook any dinners this trip, but it looked to have the basics, along with a gas grill. We used the firepit and had s'mores one evening. The location is away from the traffic of the center of town, so it's quiet. A golf cart is highly recommended to haul beach stuff as well as passengers. It would be a long walk otherwise. The pool/fitness center is just a short walk away. The grandsons enjoyed the little playground right next to the backyard. Having a full size washer/dryer was wonderful. Going home with clean clothes is always nice. We would definitely recommend Blueberry Hill and it's owner, John Rader. We've stayed in many rentals at Lakeside over the years and this was one of our favorites.
