Possibly the most relaxing place in the U.S. No rush, no hurry, no problem. The furniture is comfortable, the porch is tantalizing, sitting at the pier - heavenly! Add beautiful Fall weather, an endless array of sumptuous breakfast possibilities, funky bikes to pedal around on, golf carts when you're just too tired to bike and it adds up to an... More

We absolutely loved this place! Our room had the best view. The breakfast was amazing. We normally stay at the Kelleys Island Venture resort but decided on something different this time. We can't wait till next year to return! Gina and Gil

Tim and Beth are thoughtful and gracious hosts to say the least and do everything they can to make your stay pleasant. And yes the breakfast are to "die for".... the evening "snack" does'nt count as a meal but is a delicious treat. The best restaurants are only 8 minutes away... Kelly's Island House being our favorite. "Retreat" is an... More

We had a great, relaxing long weekend at A Water's Edge. The house is a Victorian style built in the 1990s. So you get the best of both worlds - old style charm without old house idiosyncrasies. Inside was lovely wood floors and oak trim. Furnishings were eclectic but generally in Victorian style. We stayed in the Paul Francis room... More

My daughter surprised me with a trip to Kelly's Island, Ohio and researched the area Bed and Breakfast options. She chose "A Water's Edge" based on the reviews and I must say the inn lived up to everthing! A beautiful B&B that harkens to another time and charm that makes you feel welcome as soon as you enter the front... More

Perfect stay, wonderful breakfast each morning. View is amazing, and Tim and Beth treated us like we were a part of their family. We plan on doing this little 3 day getaway every year. The home is beautiful , it was built in 1991 I believe but has the beauty and craftsmanship of a home built a 100 years ago.

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
