3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Recently stayed three nights at Water's Edge. While certainly it is a lovely place, there are some concerns that travelers should consider. First, if you require a dark room for sleeping, beware that there are small windows above the doors that allow in hallway light. Secondly, you will be able to hear the people above you, including walking, talking, and... More

What a lovely, relaxed, and friendly escape. Our charming room was on the third floor, facing the lake. During the day, the air conditioning kept the room very comfortable. In the evening, and all night long, we opened the windows to enjoy the breeze from the lake and the sound of the waves hitting the shore. During the rainy hours,... More

We celebrated our 25th Wedding anniversary at this B&B on Kelly's Island and we couldn't be more satisfied! Beth and Tim (Inn keepers) have thought of everything to make a visit here memorable and relaxing. The whole house is beautiful, breakfast and treats were wonderful, and it was the perfect combination of privacy and opportunity for meeting new people. Lots... More

We had a wonderful time. Our room was lovely and spacious. The view of the lake combined with the sound of the water was enchanting. We loved sitting on the private deck overlooking the lake. It doean't get any more relaxing than that. The breakfast was incredible - all homemade and served at 9:00. No getting up early to make... More

This bed and breakfast is amazing! Very cute house, hospitality was amazing, food was above average, & snacks were very tasty (cheese, crackers, pepperoni with Sangria and chocolate at night)! Free bikes to ride. Golf carts are $12/hour. Tim offered us a ride to our ferry when checking out. The moon light was beautiful on the water! I loved to... More

Spend the night at the Water's Edge and truely enjoyed it! Our room was so comfortable...and the lake breezes and wave sounds were so relaxing! Great quiet location. We both loved the breakfast provided and ate on the porch overlooking the lake. Would recommend it to couples looking for a romantic escape!

Our first time at Kelleys Island and we really picked a great place to stay. Beth and Tim at Waters Edge make you feel at home. The staffs attention to detail makes your room a retreat each time you come back to relax. Golf carts and bikes were available on site which is a nice convenience. Directly across the street... More

This was our first trip to Kelley's Island and read the reviews to decide where to make reservations. We selected A Water's Edge Retreat and was not disappointed! Our room was spacious with awesome views of the lake. The gourmet breakfasts were spectacular, afternoon wine and cheese were made available to enjoy on the large wrap-around porch and the evening...

We had the need to book for 1 night only on the island and were able to find an opening with Tim & Beth at Water's Edge. Usually there is a requirement of at least a 2 night stay; but they graciously relaxed this requirement for us. I had stayed there before with my adult daughters and we loved it.... More

We just returned from an impromptu visit to Kelley's Island. Called & to our surprise, they had one room available- The Margurite. It was our first B & B experience so we were a bit nervous that it would be weird/awkward. It was ......FABULOUS!!!! Wonderful place right on the lake. Relaxing, quaint, clean, and beautiful.
