We throughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the lovely Waters Edge Retreat. Hosts, Tim and Susan were gracious, and our room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a highlight! A delicious variety of food was served. I would highly recommend this B &B for a pleasant getaway.

Wife and I just stayed two nights at A Water's Edge. Very good B&B. Nice rooms and very nice hosts in Tim and Beth. Great views from the front porch. We would definitely stay there again. They have bikes and golf carts available.

Our first time to Kelleys Island was last minute and luckily this bed & breakfast had a room available for one night. We had an amazing time. Great hospitality, awesome environment, relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend this spot to anyone!

Perfect getaway!! We love Kelley's Island and this is the best place that we have stayed there. As you can see by the picture it is quite charming, lake views, immaculately clean, a hot tub, and bikes for the guests. But the best part was the breakfast. Tim and Beth knock themselves out! So much variety and all delicious!! Above... More

This b&b is wonderful! Totally worth the money. We arrived to homemade sangrias. Breakfast was delicious. There were so many options and the owners take into account your food preferences. They really made you feel at home. It was great that they provided us with bikes. Wonderful view of the water. We would totally recommend it even if you stay... More

A Water's Edge Retreat Resort is a beautiful bed and breakfast. It's location is perfect - it's not "downtown" where all the "action" is but it's only a quick bike ride away. There's a cute little deck on/that overlooks the lake just across the street and it's for guests only. Each room has its own bathroom (yay!!) and our room... More

Tim and Elizabeth, Thank you so much for our recent stay! We love the house and the rooms including everything there is to offer. Your home is very relaxing. We got stranded for another evening on Kelly's Island, because of the storms and the ferry not running which gave us the opportunity to stay another evening. My husband's grandfather started...

Our stay at Water's Edge was just the perfect get-away for our anniversary. The B and B is beautiful, and the hosts friendly and helpful. The breakfast was beyond expectations and the snacks/treats a nice touch. Our room had an amazing view. Sitting on the front porch or the decks was a wonderful way to relax in a beautiful setting....
