About Therese Hoffman

Dave and Therese Hoffman have owned The Garden Cottage at Cottages at the Water's Edge for 30 years. They are dedicated to maintaining vintage cottages so guests can 'step back in time', unplug and relax on Lake Erie shores.

Therese Hoffman purchased this cottage in 1985

Why Therese Hoffman chose Ohio

The Garden Cottage is a true vintage cottage with all the modern day amenities. However, to truly get away from it all, we do not have televisions, one of our trademarks!!!

Great Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage ion your web site was where we stayed. We noticed the 50's theme through out. Thank goodness for the full sized refridge. The grounds are like out of a garden magazine. The beach is just the right size. The lake is kid friendly as the water is not too deep rt away. The best part was sitting in one of the vintage gliders, in the shade and still able to keep and eye on the kiddos. The town of Vermillion is charming offering a Soda Shop and various eateries. I would highly recommend this resort. Thank you Therese and Dave for a wonderful time
