Wow! Thanks for getting us in at the last moment This B&B has to be the best on the Island. Elizabeth and Tim are very accommodating, the rooms extremely clean and comfortable and individual bath areas. We will certainly come back on next planned visit to KI!!!! This property is a definite must stay if you travel to KI.

We have many great memories from spending last weekend at Kelley's Island, including Beth's awesome sangria - but most of all just spending the quiet time after the amazing breakfast each morning sitting on the deck over the Lake Erie, sipping coffee --- PRICELESS. Upon my return, I have shared the brochure for their B&B with several of my work... More

We recently stayed at A Water's Edge Retreat Resort and had a wonderful stay. The room was large, quiet, and very comfortable with a beautiful view of the lake. Tim and Elizabeth were extremely friendly and hospitable. The breakfast was awesome. The daily afternoon sangria and evening chocolates offered by the front door was an extra special touch!

Had a wonderful stay. The room was quiet and had lake views. The owners were very hospitable. The breakfast was awesome and I loved the little nightime 'chocolate snacks' offered each evening by the front door! This is my first time staying at a bed and breakfast and it definitely set my standards high!

We were treated like family; Tim and Beth were great hosts! The room was just what we needed and you will be hard pressed to find a better breakfast anywhere. The food was just excellent! The private little deck on the water was a very pleasant surprise and a peaceful way to spend a morning, afternoon or evening just listening... More

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!
