About Amanda

My husband and I found out about Portage Lakes in 2015 and fell in love! We spent as much time as possible on the lakes and have now moved down here permanently. Our hope is to provide an opportunity for more people to appreciate this amazing hidden treasure right here in northeast Ohio.

Amanda purchased this house in 2015

Why Amanda chose Akron

Our property has lots of boat traffic that guarantees you can never get bored! Plenty of fish to catch right off the dock with restaurants and boat rentals nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Could not have been happier with the lake cottage. Fantastic view with lots of boat traffic to watch. Such a big space with lots of thoughtful touches throughout!!

Great Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

Great views of the lake and boats passing by. Perfect dock for our 26 foot boat - very clean and easy to access. Loved all of the outdoor seating.

Older home with low ceilings and great views!

  • 4 of 5

We had some tall folks staying with us and the ceilings are low.... but the house is incredible! Just wanted to pass along that if you are over 6 foot you will have to duck to go through the doorways. But great location for fishing and boating. Plus the lake views are gorgeous! My family had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend this house!

Great Location on Portage Lakes

  • 4 of 5

The location of this house is amazing. On a point that allows you to watch the boats go by and have a great view of the lake. Deck is awesome with good fishing. Great summer fun location. If you want a spot on Portage lakes this is a great place to have the experience. The inside is complete with kitchen, sleeping for up to 8, good air conditioning, WiFi, etc. Nice deck to have outside eating and plenty of chairs around the decks to sit around. I wish I found time to start a fire in the outdoor fire pit, but we were too busy enjoying the lake. The only thing you may need to watch out for is access to the entrance can be a bit difficult due to the downhill access especially at night.

Cleanliness and readiness

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The location of the house was perfect. It was perfect for relaxing and entertaining. What we were not impressed with was the cleanliness of the house. There was soap scum in the bathtub, there were goose droppings all over the yard and deck that we had to clean up to use them, and the outdoor furniture was dirty with cobwebs we had to clean. Plus, we had to buy a gas tank for the grill since it was empty.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We always appreciate any feedback as it helps us know how new cleaning services are keeping up with expectations. Goose poop and cobwebs are a given on the lake but we would have been happy to bring a propane tank over to replace the empty. $20 was refunded to you for the propane.

Beautiful location and everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This charming house right on the lake was perfect for our friend get away to the Portage Lakes! We had 7 adults and a baby and there was plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed sitting around the fire pit outside, watching the lake from the sunroom windows, and making yummy meals in the well stocked kitchen. We loved all the charming ship themed doorways and decor. Our baby loved crawling around on the thick carpet! It was clean, well taken care of, and the owners were great to work with!

Beautiful Lakehouse!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lakehouse in August while visiting family who live just a few doors down. It was the perfect place for my family and I. My two little boys ADORED the Pirate room. The place is very roomy with a large kitchen and plenty of areas to eat or relax. The hosts have thought of everything. We particularly enjoyed the nice stereo system for enjoying music inside and outside the house. We also loved the many places to play board games or be outside, including the nice deck and fire pit. We also used the dock for my aunt's pontoon boat and for sitting on the pier with our kids watching the ducks, swans and many boats go by. I have had family living on Portage Lakes since the 1930s and it holds many special memories for me and it was great to be able to stay at such a lovely lake home while visiting.
