My parents and I decided to meet halfway between Detroit and Cleveland for a visit and made the perfect choice when we found the Farrell House Lodge. It was easy to find off Route 2 for both of us. As mentioned, the grounds are beautiful-filled with willow trees and a trout stream running throughout. Fishermen were there fly fishing and it was fun to follow the stream and see all the fish swimming around. You could sit in several beautiful sitting areas inside the house, in the back area or on the front porch in the rocking chairs which my parents enjoyed. There is a Kuerig coffee maker available at all times so we had our coffee/tea whenever we wanted it. There was a room where the beer and wine was available on an honor system as well. You just wrote down what you took and it was added to your bill. The suite we had was up a flight of stairs and beautiful. Our suite was room #1. It was very large with 2 queen size beds and a fireplace and sitting room. It overlooked the back yard. It was very quiet-even with the wedding party who were having a wedding there the day we left. We had dinner there which was delicious-we enjoyed the perch. The service was relaxed and not too speedy, but we were not in a hurry and enjoyed just visiting together. We took a side trip to Marblehead which was close to visit a friend. What a quaint town-I walked up the lighthouse and we enjoyed lunch at an old hotel in Lakeside. I had no idea this Lake Erie area was so beautiful! The next time I go, I would like to visit the neighboring winery that Doug told us about.Doug, the owner, was so helpful and kind. We enjoyed talking to him-he has a beautiful place. I am sure glad that I looked on Tripadvisor and saw the reviews for this place. They are accurate and I am sure we will visit again.
