Why Steve & Gina chose Ohio

This Lake is The Only Non-Man Made Lake in The Portage Lakes. Its As Natural As it Gets.There Are 5 Lakes to Portage But...Long Lake is Natures Way Of Saying Good Morning ! Portage Lakes lies at one of the highest points of the state and on a major watershed divide in Ohio. Some water from the lakes reaches Lake Erie and some flows to the Ohio River.The area became an important trading post for settlers and Indians. It was a recognized landmark during the War of 1812, serving as a rendezvous point of American troops. The old Indian portage path was part of the ancient boundary between the Six Nations and the Western Indians The Portage Lakes have many species swimming in their

waters. Largemouth Bass, Walleye, Black and White

Crappie, Muskellunge, Eastern Chain Pickerel, Bluegill,

Redear Sunfish, Pumpkinseed, Rainbow Trout, Warmouth

Bass, Yellow Perch, Channel Catfish, Bullhead, Sucker,

and Carp are all found here. Muskellunge are generally

found in North Reservoir, while the Pickerel are located

in Long Lake. Saugeye are stocked in all lakes.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

As You Wake Up in The Morning & The Sun is Rising Over the Lake Facing You. The Colors, The Smell Of Fresh Air, (Remember That)... Since There is No Heavy Traffic Near By, Swans & Ducks Are Gonna Be the Only Sounds While Blue Heron Fly By. While You Do Have a Couple Of Neighbors Near By...It Still Remains Private & Secluded.

A real gem!

We spent two nights and two days at Steve and Gina's Lake House and we couldn't have been more happy with the stay.

The house: It's clean, net and has plenty of space and all the kitchen stuff needed, just bring your own food and beverages. We grilled on their grill, built a fire in their huge lakeside backyard and enjoyed the private outdoor deck.

The location: Great! I mean, what a spot!!! It's nestled on this secluded hidden drive that is so close to Akron and Cuyahoga, Canton and Cleveland. It's on a GREAT LAKE! Can't say enough good things.

Hosts: Gina and Steve were excellent hosts. We hung out by the fire our first night, great time.

Highly Recommended

Peaceful & Comfortable Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

We are pleasantly surprised and very happy with this home. Beautiful view of the lake with Dock access. Gorgeous landscaping! Beds are comfortable and the houses rather large. Kitchen has all the utensils that you would need. We definitely recommend staying here. Close to everything stores, kayaking, the lakes and restaurants. The owners have jet skis right here on the property for you to rent any time. Steve & Gina are good hosts!

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The views from the house and deck were beautiful at any time of day. It was quiet, peaceful, and relaxing - just what we were looking for (but close to anything you might want). I enjoyed watching a flock of 13 ducks using the dock as a playground one morning at sunrise. The climbed onto the dock, jumped into the water (with splats), and repeated again and again! The house itselt was extremely clean and well maintained. Steve and Gina are very nice, and availble for whateve you might need. This was so much better than a hotel.

Nice Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Older house, but very clean and well cared for. Owners very nice and thoughtful. Lake was perfect for our fishing boat. Quiet and peaceful. We took our dog, Daisy with no problems. She also loved the lake! We had a very relaxing short stay! The only thing I found in fault is the kitchen could stand to have a few more things stocked in it. There was only 1 knife and it was a paring knife, so hard to cut bread. No mixing bowls either but we made do and had a nice time! Thanks again!

Peaceful it is

overall we had a very good stay...only had a few minor issues....the bedroom on the eastside could use better sun blocking shades..early morning sun gets you up at 7am each morning... also room could use a fan....kitchen could use a good knife...we had to go and buy one to prep food. The place was clean and beds are very comfortable. I would rebook without question...I would give it 4 out of 5
