Idlewyld is a beautiful place to stay, it is full of charm and comfort. The front porch is lined with rockers and is directly across the street from the auditorium in Lakeside! Great location!

We spent one night at this B&B. We were new to Lakeside, Ohio and the little town/Methodist Church Camp has many charms, including tree-lined streets, charming cottages and larger homes (like this one) and plenty of shops and leisure activities. The positives of the Idlewyld Bed & Breakfast are that it is clean and well-maintained. There is a large wrap-around... More

Our experience at Idlewyld B&B was a mix of strong positives and some just-OK's. But I should say at the outset that my wife and I were there during the Midwest Birding Symposium in September 2011, and things might be different at other times. Two big plusses: The hosts, Dan and Joan, are delightful people - friendly and accommodating -... More
