I just got back from a weekend getaway to Water's Edge with my parents and 3-year old daughter. It was wonderful. Tim couldn't have been nicer and the food was truly excellent. The atmosphere is welcoming & relaxed. Everything is as-advertised...what you read is what you get, down to the chocolates awaiting you upon your return in the evening. I wish we could have stayed longer. Two nights was not quite enough. I highly recommend this place.

To Whom it may concern,

My Wife and I just spent a beautiful weekend at the Waters Edge Retreat bed & breakfast on Kelleys Island. The house is amassing and the rooms were great . we had a beautiful view of the lake from the room & the front porch . It is a great place to rest & relax . If you like breakfast, you'l love the wonderful buffet that Beth prepares. It was a special time in our life , because it was where our son and his wife to be had picked to be married, on the beach, by our host Tim Hermes .
Everything ran as planned & host Beth & Tim had what we needed right when we needed it.
The after wedding celebration was so nice on the wraparound porch. The hosts helped in the preparation of the after wedding celebration.
The inn's staff was very friendly & help full to all of us also.

The Inn has a very nicely done Victorian charm. The breakfasts are a true delight and indeed over the top. Saturday included a wine and cheese late afternoon snack, very delicious. They have nice bicycles for guests and golf carts available. We chose to bring our vehicle and bikes with us. The staff is very warm, friendly and very attentive. An all around great getaway destination.

PS. Love the pooches.

This visit was our second visit to the Waters Edge Retreat, and that is just what it is! The wonderful treatment is the topping on the location! This get-away is the perfect location on the Island, and the wonderful treatment is such a big part of the experience! The gourmet breakfasts are fabulous, and the home, and staff are so warm and welcoming. On both of our visits, we were treated so graciously by Willie and Bob, via Beth and Tim, and the stay was exceptional! Make the time to get-away to this Bed and Breakfast, and enjoy!! Highly recommend this "treat"!

Room Tip: The rooms in the front of the home on the second floor is where we have spent our 2 visits, they are perfect for the view is out to Lake Erie, and so peaceful

We were married July 14th, 2012 and traveled to Kelleys Island the following day to stay at The Water's Edge. Awesome isn't even close! Beth & Tim are so much fun and do everything to make your stay relaxing. All the guests are pampered. Not only is their home beautiful, but it's comfortable and very welcoming. We stayed in the Charles Lawrence suite. Our room had a jacuzzi tub, balcony and sitting room. It was private and very clean. We already scheduled to stay next year for 1st Anniversary but next time we are staying 3 nights instead of 2! Love it!! Lori & J.P Lawson
