We wanted a nice relaxing weekend close to the water and this was perfect. The views from the room were beautiful and the deck on the water was sooooo relaxing. The breakfasts were superb and evening snacks with Sangria a special treat. We'll be back!

My husband and I just spend the nicest 4 days as guests at Water's Edge Retreat. Beth and Tim are great hosts, the property is beautiful and the breakfasts are to die for. We really enjoyed sitting out by the beach in the evening, listening to the waves and looking at the stars. Would recommend reserving the "honeymoon suite" -... More

My husband and only had two days for a honeymoon and we decided this B&B would be ideal. We had never stayed in a B&B so we had really no idea what to expect. We were not disappointed. We had so much fun relaxing by the water... What a view! The food and hospitality were amazing. We loved our room...... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 21st Wedding Anniversary. We chose the Water's Edge on Kelley's Island. The view from our room, The Mary Louise, was fabulous! You can see Cedar Point across the lake...including the fireworks at night. The private beach area was perfect for morning coffee and evening sunset. The innkeepers, Tim and Beth, were friendly and... More

My husband and I had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before, had never been to Kelleys Island, and were looking forward to being alone, so we were hesitant, but based on the reviews here, took a chance. We were so glad we did. We booked the honeymoon suite. It was fabulous. The property is very quiet. The owners... More

My wife and I came here shortly after our wedding for a relaxing couple of days. Tim and Beth were so warm and calm, we immediately felt at home. Tim took plenty of time to tell us all about the island (our first time). The breakfast they offer is AMAZING, some of the best food on the island right here!... More

My wife and I have been staying at A Waters Edge Resort for may years. We have found the facilities quiet and well kept. The staff is always friendly and with the Hermes wonderful cooking the breakfasts are superb. There are lake views in all but one of the rooms and the lake is close enough to hear the water.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed the weekend of August 1 as an escape from our stressful jobs. This b&b was absolutely perfect. The owners Tim and Beth were friendly and extremely accommodating. Our room Theresa Regina had a gorgeous view of the water. The nightly red sangria was delicious. The breakfast was not the standard continental. It was a homemade... More

My husband and I have now visited and stayed at Water's Edge three times now. Each time we have stayed in a different room. Each one has had it's own unique charm. My own thought about the comments on the rooms is we all have chosen to stay in a bed and breakfast which in my opinion means we are... More

A fair review is supported by experience with a reasonable number of comparables. We are seasoned travelers with an objective sense of what is required to be considered a good Inn in our book. Our favorite public houses are The Inn at Craig Place, San Antonio, Texas; The Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island, Michigan, and; Simpson House Inn, Santa Barbara, California.... More
