Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Fred and Kelly, Our group of eight women thoroughly enjoyed staying at your wonderful family home "Madison on the Lake". We were so excited to be together in such a pleasant, welcoming environment. We adored our Sunday evening meal at the new restaurant up the street, Allure, and appreciate your recommendation. Thank you very much for making this memorable opportunity available for our group. We hope someday to return to this lovely part of Ohio. Sincere Thanks from Patty (MI), Pam (NC), Marsha (OH), Chris (WI), Nancy (OH), Sharon (KY), Beverly (CO), and Vicki (OH) - graduates of USHS

This is a quaint, well kept home. Super clean. Very peaceful and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 had an excellent experience here! There was so much room for our family; it was a wonderful time of bonding and sharing our time together! The house is cozy, clean, and quiet. The yard and lake are gorgeous! The kitchen is very well stocked. Beds are super comfy. Kelly was more than accommodating and made our experience that much more enjoyable. She answered all my questions in a timely fashion and gave us excellent recommendations for points of interest and restaurants. The townsfolk are very friendly as well! I highly recommend Madison-on-the Lake!

Lake Life - We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family from several states enjoyed the peace and beauty of living on the lake for a week! The deck with it's sunsets, swimming in the lake and sitting on the sun porch listening to the lapping waves were highlights! We took several local excursions with our one year old granddaughter, within half hour. The beautiful Holden Arboretum was a wonderful day trip for all. Great relaxing vacation!
