My wife and I recently wanted to go up to Lake Erie (hoped to do a little fishing but the weather killed that idea) and decided to visit Geneva On the Lake for a few days. We arranged for a room at the Anchor Motel and Cottages after having a short phone conversation with the owner. We arrived in Geneva On the Lake to find a resort village from out of the 1950's or 60's and the Anchor was no exception. We were greeted on arrival by the owner operator who I soon began referring to as our innkeeper and local advisor on what was good in town. The room was small and showing its age (but with few exceptions everything in town was showing its age and turned out to be part of the charm of the village). It was well maintained and clean and the setting was fun. There was a large common area out under the trees (with chairs, picnic table and campfire ring) which meant we spent very little time in the room, so the smaller size of the older room was not an issue. Throughout our stay our innkeeper was checking with us to assure everything was going well. In hindsight if and when we return we will most likely book one of the cottages for the extra space and the kitchen. Eating every meal out managed to put a few pounds on an already over ample waist but more later on the Lakeview Restaurant, what became our favorite in town.
