Reviewed 10 June 2014

Spend the night at the Water's Edge and truely enjoyed it! Our room was so comfortable...and the lake breezes and wave sounds were so relaxing! Great quiet location. We both loved the breakfast provided and ate on the porch overlooking the lake. Would recommend it to couples looking for a romantic escape!

Our first time at Kelleys Island and we really picked a great place to stay. Beth and Tim at Waters Edge make you feel at home. The staffs attention to detail makes your room a retreat each time you come back to relax. Golf carts and bikes were available on site which is a nice convenience. Directly across the street is a nice deck area where you can relax and watch the boats. I want to mention breakfast as well, delicious, each morning they prepare a delicious array of breakfast items both sweet and savory! We stayed on the 3rd floor facing the lake and went to sleep with the sounds of the lake and woke up with a beautiful view each morning. Love Waters Edge Retreat!

This was our first trip to Kelley's Island and read the reviews to decide where to make reservations. We selected A Water's Edge Retreat and was not disappointed! Our room was spacious with awesome views of the lake. The gourmet breakfasts were spectacular, afternoon wine and cheese were made available to enjoy on the large wrap-around porch and the evening was topped off with decadent chocolate treats in the lobby before retiring to your room. We enjoyed the conversations with Tim about the Island and its history.

We had the need to book for 1 night only on the island and were able to find an opening with Tim & Beth at Water's Edge. Usually there is a requirement of at least a 2 night stay; but they graciously relaxed this requirement for us. I had stayed there before with my adult daughters and we loved it. So I was anxious for my husband to get a chance to enjoy this wonderful B&B with their absolutely delicious breakfast. There was once again great conversation with the other guests around the spacious dining table; with Tim joining in with his tales of sailboat racing. This will always be my first choice for lodging when I plan a trip back to Kelley's; it was a short trip this time but very enjoyable.

We just returned from an impromptu visit to Kelley's Island. Called & to our surprise, they had one room available- The Margurite. It was our first B & B experience so we were a bit nervous that it would be weird/awkward. It was ......FABULOUS!!!! Wonderful place right on the lake. Relaxing, quaint, clean, and beautiful. If you are looking for a place to relax & rekindle- look no further. My only complaint is that we could only stay one night. The complementary breakfast was top notch. Hit up the winery while you're there- you will not regret it! And a dinner of fresh Lake Erie perch at The Pump is a must. I cannot wait to go back- it was fantastic!!!

The room was clean and spacious with awesome views of the lake. We also really enjoyed the evening chocolates and treats when arriving back after an evening out. Looking forward to another visit next year. You won't be disappointed!
