About Darlene and Bud Hallsky

We live in a suburb of Youngstown, Ohio. It is only a little over an hour away from home which makes it convenient when we want to get away and relax.

Darlene and Bud Hallsky purchased this house in 2013

Why Darlene and Bud Hallsky chose Madison-on-the-Lake

It has been a long time dream of ours to have a place in this area. A family member used to have a place in Madison and we always had a good time when we visited. We took many drives in the area over the years searching for a house right on the water and when we found this house we knew we had to have it.

What makes this house unique

As soon as you walk through the door you are met with views of Lake Erie. Sitting on the deck and watching the ships and the beautiful sunsets make you feel like you are at the ocean without having to travel that far.

This was our 2nd year to stay here

  • 5 of 5

Our family voted to return for a second year. This home had plenty of room for 8 of us to be very comfortable.The kitchen had everything we needed and we used the grill several times. The sunset views are beautiful. We enjoyed the deck and hot tub. Close walk to a playground and ice cream. A hit with the young kids! We hope to return next year!

Can't say enough: the view, the deck, the house, the hot tub, the amenities; but, the best is having Lake Erie as your backyard. Except a trip to Dairy Queen, we never left. Hot dogs and burgers, pizza on the grill,a great roast beef, potato salad (German and American),steaks, waffles (waffle iron is THE BEST), we didn't have to bring any equipment, just food. Plenty to do-- for an age range of 1 to 68. We already booked next year.

The house had a breathtaking view of the lake. Spacious deck to watch the sun rise and set. Clean; nicely decorated and comfortable. Just a great experience overall!

One of the best of several Lake homes we've enjoyed - great beach access and the view is stunning. The owners were very accommodating and came right away to fix an air-conditioning issue. Pet friendly, clean, and spacious - with cozy reading nooks throughout the house. Enjoyed a fire on the deck the last night as we watched a beautiful sun set.Good biking at the nearby Geneva State Park. And Madison is close to one of my favorite restaurants - the Bascule Bridge Grille in Ashtabula Harbor.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've rented this home, it's right on Lake Erie and has wonderful views! The owners couldn't be any more accommodating and I can't say enough about how well they have worked with us on travel plans! We missed the nice big sectional sofa that used to be there, but it's not a deal-breaker. There are some stairs up to the bedrooms. Kitchen is awesome as well as the patio! Rent this property, you will not regret it.
