A spontaneous decision on Friday morning to spend an anniversary/birthday weekend celebration on Kelley's Island led us to Tripadvisor and a great reco for A Waters Edge. A fortunate cancellation from another bagged us the awesome Paul Francis room on the top floor of the Victorian house, with an amazing three direction view of the lake. A great sighting of Cedar Point five miles away, with the sound of the surf at night with the windows open. Ahhhh!
Beth and Tim are wonderful hosts. Breakfasts to die for, Home made sangria late afternoon, and wonderful sweets in the evening. The house was build twenty years ago by the hosts, and it is comfort-by-the-lake. Far enough from the docks and downtown to be totally peaceful, yet close enough to get to the restaurants and other island sights, this is the place to stay at Kelley's Island.
