About Eli Williams

I'm an actor/ musician living in New York City. I have been in NYC for the past 5 years. I grew up in the Portage Lakes area and always loved being there. I do get home to see my family and stay at the house every few months.

Eli Williams purchased this house in 1993

Why Eli Williams chose Akron

In 2000 I decided to upgrade the bathroom upstairs in the hallway by the bedrooms. I ended up re-modeling the entire house. I ripped down walls and the ceiling, put in 7 skylights and all new appliances.

What makes this house unique

It's beautiful in ALL-SEASONS. During boating months it's a perfect location as you can dock a boat (owned or rented) at the private dock located on the property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The view and setting is blissful. I've concluded I have the best spot in Ohio to sit and enoy a glass of sauvignon blanc!

Great place for a relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was the perfect place for my children, their friend and I to have as a home base on our sports vacation road trip. Located in a quiet neighborhood part way between Cleveland and Canton, we were easily able to get to the Football Hall of Fame and professional sporting events in Cleveland.

I also loved it because the beautifully-kept home was perfectly laid out. I could relax in the open concept main living area, while enjoying a few moments of peace and the view of the lake and large backyard. The kids loved the large downstairs bedroom/television/hangout rooms where they had their own space.

The property owner was extremely accessible throughout the booking and during the course of our stay. He made sure we had everything we needed, and was a pleasure to deal with.

I’m so happy I found this home for our vacation. It was even better than I could have imagined.

This is a lovely home right on lake front property. Home is well appointed for family gathering.

  • 4 of 5

Sleeps quite a few people; lower level is much better suited for kids or those that don’t need privacy. Kitchen is stocked with most cooking utensils and needed appliances although could not find a mixer. The patio is great and the view of the lake is lovely. We had a lovely fire one night on the fire mound and had a good ole Weiner roast with S’mores.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful week of vacation at Portage Lake. We were looking for a place where we could relax while spending some time boating and biking. This was a great place for us since the house has its own dock on the lake. Actually, when we arrived there had been an accident that damaged the dock the week before. After informing the owner of the problem, he very promptly sent someone to repair it and we appreciated it very much. Eli was very helpful and accommodating. Coffee each morning on the patio by the lake was a great way to start the day. Then being able to walk across the lawn to hop in the boat for an afternoon on the water was very enjoyable. We are hopeful to return next year for our vacation and we would certainly recommend this house to others.
