“Fantanstic B&B !!!!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

My husband and I were going to attend our niece's wedding in Huron but did not want to stay at a noisy water park with the gang and wanted something peaceful. We just retired and wanted something for ourselves and this place was so perfect. The charm and ambience were tremendous but we made our decision at first based on the thought of gourmet breakfasts. We were definitely not dis-appointed! For that alone it would be worth another trip. The true highlight was the exceptionally warm welcome provided by Tim and Beth. They are not only both gourmet cooks but just delightfully interesting individuals and a great team! We plan to go back next year almost as much to see them again as to replay our experiences on the gorgeous island. We loved the hiking and driving a golf cart everywhere rather than our car and hours of sitting on their lake deck just feet from the water's edge where we could read and have a glass or wine (or coffee in the am). We would highly recommend this B&B anytime you can get a reservation.

Search no further and book it now! Beth and Tim are the most amazing B&B owners/innkeepers. They go out of their way to make you feel a welcome part of their home. You will love the delicious gourmet breakfasts, the quiet comfortable ambience of your room, the thoughtfully decorated sitting room, and large wrap around porch overlooking a beautiful view of Lake Erie. After our first visit last year, we were hooked and plan to make Waters Edge Retreat one of our yearly getaways. Sandra & George

My husband and I recently spent Labor Day weekend at this delightful getaway. Located on the south shore of lovely Kelleys Island, this beautiful house became home. Beth and Tim are the most amazing hosts. They made us feel so welcome. We felt as if they were long-lost friends by the end of our stay. The breakfasts they prepared daily were delicious. Snacks were provided in the late afternoon along with a sweet treat at bedtime. The accomodations were very comfortable and clean. Our room had a spectacular view of Cedar Point. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a peaceful sanctuary.

I am one who likes to read reviews but has never written one. I feel compelled to share with you this special place. We spent three enjoyable nights here. Beth and Tim are the perfect hosts. They are very informative, helpful and make you feel at home. Beth has a wonderful energy all her own. The house is beautiful and clean. The rooms are well planned out and comfortable. The water pressure for your shower which I deem as VERY important was better than my house. The breakfast was delish and plentiful. I have many food sensitivities which Tim and Beth were MORE than willing to accomodate and did. There is also a small refrigerator available for guests to use. We loved the front porch for breakfast and after activity relaxation. The location and views from the house are perfect! There are bikes for you to use and golf carts to rent during your stay. A walk into town is easy. We greatly enjoyed meeting the other guests. All in all our time on Kelley's island was greatly enhanced by our stay here. We haven't stopped talking about it. Thanks Tim and Beth. Beth your energy is infectious. I wouldn't give staying here a second thought.

Beth and Tim - thank you for a perfect weekend. As we celebrated our wedding anniversary, your beautiful home was quiet, cozy, and view spectacular. Breakfast was SO GOOD every morning. We loved touring the island by bike and our excursion to South Bass Island. Yet, the best part of the trip was meeting you and enjoying your energy, hospitality, and genuine warmth... as if we were family. We hope to come back soon. We will keep you and your family in our prayers always and wish you only the best. You are 'good people'... a true blessing.

Room Tip: Ask for the private room off the kitchen... exceptionally nice!

We recently spent 4 nights at this beautiful B&B located on the south shore of Kelley's Island, on Lake Erie. We had a delightful and relaxing stay. The place looks like an authentic Victorian home, complete with architectural details and bright exterior colors. In fact, it was built in the late 90s, so you have all the ambience and charm of a 100 year old place but with all the amenities and luxuries of a modern building. The location is beautiful, with lake views and a private little beach. The owners, Tim and Beth, are exquisite and friendly hosts (and chefs). The breakfasts were awesome, and the entire vibe of the place is great.

We had a very spacious room since our teenage son was with us, and it provided some of the best nights' sleep we've had in a long while.

I highly recommend A Water's Edge for an extended stay or a weekend getaway. You will not be disappointed in the least.

We just spent 4 nights at this incredible B&B. Beth and Tim, as well as their staff, are the most gracious hosts. Our room was huge and included a deck, the gourmet breakfast was delicious, our view of the lake was spectacular, and the amenities were over the top! We didn't even get to the hot tub. We didn't want to leave. Fear not, we will return. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
