About The Owner

Hello.. We are Tris and Paul and we welcome you to our home. We have been renting out our summer home since 2000 and we have really enjoyed meeting so many families who have stayed at our place over the years (&the friends who return each year). It is great meeting people from all over who are excited to get together with family & friends and enjoy some time at our beach.

I have lived in Madison most of my life and Tris is from Indonesia. We got married in 2009. We both work together managing the cottage and we thoroughly enjoy it each summer.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1999

Why The Owner chose Madison-on-the-Lake

Growing up in the quaint small town of Madison, I have always been drawn to the lake. So, when I had the opportunity to buy this place in 1999 I jumped on it. Our dream is to eventually build a summer home on the lot where we have our beach and to continue to share it with renters. The past 10 years have been filed with many happy memories shared with so many renters. We take a lot of pride in what we provide and we just love to share the blessings we have.

What makes this cottage unique

So many renters first show up to our home with a long list of plans of what they want to do during their stay...and most of them are just so content to stay at the beach, watching sunsets, swimming, boating having campfires and cookouts and really do not want to leave. Most renters like the quietness of the private beach.

Modest Beach Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our weekend stay at this modest beach cottage. The kitchen was well-stocked, there were beds aplenty for our large family, the living room with cable and Blu-Ray was spacious, the cabinets were full of DVDs, games, and puzzles, and the wi-fi held up to at least five teenage devices (haha!). Our favorite part of the cottage was the four-seasons room with glass windows looking out across the lawn toward the lake. Please note that the pictures of the shoreline (dated 2010) no longer accurately depict its current state. The gravel entry is gone and has been replaced with large breaker rocks - as is typical now along most Great Lakes shores. The owner has, however, constructed a beautiful deck above the water and a fire pit sitting area in the lawn - perfect for quiet summer days and evenings.

Great cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 4 kids. The kitchen was well equipped for our cooking needs. The home was comfortable when we were lounging around. The beach access was fun for the kids when the weather allowed. The proximity to the local restaurants and parks was awesome. The owner was helpful when we had questions, he was quick with a text response. We would definitely rent this cottage again!

Great relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect setting for the relaxing getaway that my husband and I needed! The location was central for the mini day trips that we had planned to explore a part of Ohio that we hadn't visited before. We were able to see the many attractions in the area and return for a evening of relaxing by the lake and watching the sun set over the water! Absolutely beautiful! Our day trips including visits to the many covered bridges in the area, searching for antiques, cute shops, wineries, orchards and some great restaurants.

Paul, the owner, was very welcoming and readily available if we needed him! This place was stocked with everything! We literally brought food and our personal items and the rest was already there. We will definitely consider staying here again!
