Upon arriving at A Waters Edge we were warmly greeted by Simone, the temporary exchange student, and shown our lovely room with a wonderful view of Lake Erie. We were lucky enough to be staying there on the night of a full moon and it was beautiful, we watched it for hours. I am very picky about sheets and pillows usually bringing my own pillow when I am traveling, but this was not necessary, the linens and pillows were impeccable.
The house is beautiful and is one of those houses that warms you each time you enter it displaying the sincerity and friendliness of the owners Tim and Beth. They were very approachable and accommodating.
We truly enjoyed the sailboat ride. Tim is a very experienced sail boat captain and sharing his sailing experiences added to the pleasure of being on the water.
I can’t say enough good things about the breakfast. I think they should publish a gourmet breakfast cookbook. We had something fresh and delicious every morning.
The waterfront deck was a great place to enjoy the peacefulness of our excursion. We also took advantage of the bikes and the golf cart. It was a great way to see the artist gallery (Herndon), the glacial grooves on the island and the state park.
We will definitely be going back to visit our new friends Beth and Tim.
