Why Steve & Gina chose Akron

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!

  • 5 of 5

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

Slice of Heaven Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Let me start off by saying, We come to the Portage Lakes area 2 - 3 times a year to visit family. We would stay at one of two places every year and this time we thought why not try something different. The other places we stayed at are what you would call the main lakes. Lot's of people, Boats, traffic, it's a party type atmosphere. When you go out in the yard with your family or your pets you'll find yourself waving and saying hi constantly throughout the day and night to the boaters, which is fine but it wears on you a bit after a day or two. Swimming and fishing can also be a challenge sometimes due to traffic. So privacy started to be a concern for us. So when we found this home, we called and Steve understood and said that's why he ended up on this lake. (Privacy) Gina was there to meet us as we arrived that afternoon and I have to tell you the first thing we noticed was how peaceful and quiet it was in the middle of the afternoon. The second thing we notice after Gina walk us through, was how clean the house was and I'm a big fan of a clean house so I cannot Rave enough about that. When she took us out on the deck, the view just takes your breath away, this is a nice size lake. We caught all kinds of fish during our stay, we built camp fires, cooked out almost everyday. The dishwasher saved me so much time and the big screen TV in the living room had Amazon Prime on it so there was plenty to choose from. The beds were really comfortable and a five minute drive, you can be at a 72 Hole Golf Course, Restaurants, a Fresh Market & even the Highway, how convenient. Our family was really taken by all the nature there is to offer. We got lucky finding this Jewel and feel so blessed and now that we know we will be back again and again. I cannot recommend this Slice of Heaven enough. Thank you Steve and Gina for sharing with us something so special.

Lots to do!

The cottage was very clean and updated. Everything you needed was at your fingertips. Steve and Gina did a great job of making sure we were comfortable. Beautiful parks and vineyards within easy driving distance. Cleveland is just a short drive if you like the city scene. Great experience.
