We love this place. Second time here. Clean rooms, quaint atmosphere. Awesome lake views and access to the lake via a LONG staircase down the bank leading to a hidden beach makes it a cool fun place to stay.

I truly enjoyed my stay at Lakeview. Stunning views, beautiful grounds, and the cabin was cozy the bed was comfortable, and the cabin was very clean. I felt safe and it felt like home. Kelly and Demaris the owners, are wonderful and went beyond helpful for what one would expect. I had a great time, thanks I will be back!

We really enjoyed our stay at Lakeview!!! This was our first trip to Lake Erie and we loved the atmosphere, coziness, and view on the lake. We had alot of fun going down the steps and exploring the shoreline....loved the waterfall at the bottom!! We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed it all! There were 3 of us and we stayed in motel room #7, which was perfect for my husband, myself and our 10 year old. We do alot of camping where we can enjoy the outdoors. This motel fulfilled our need of the outdoors ( Adirondeck chairs, Hammocks, walking down to lake, and a net to play volleyball/badminton) without camping!!

Room Tip: Motel Room #7 was roomy and cozy enough for a small family with 2 Double beds.

My husband and I stayed at Lakeview on the Lake for our mini-honeymoon, and were quite happy with the choice! We stayed in the Vineyard Suite, which included a bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom, and an unobstructed view of Lake Erie right at the foot of the bed!

Check in was quick and painless, and Kelly (one of the owners) was friendly and engaging, and helped with all of our questions. The room was spotless, everything worked, and it came stocked with pots, pans, plates, etc. and the biggest mini-fridge I've ever seen. The bed was comfortable, and they recently added a new air conditioning unit, which worked wonderfully. There were 2 TVs, with the updated flatscreen in the bedroom.

The bathroom, though functional, was not what you would call amazing. It had a small stand-up shower with a low-set shower head, but it served its purpose.

There is beach access, but it's down a dizzyingly steep set of stairs and platforms, and the beach is not maintained (not that we expected it to be). It made for a great little adventure though, spending one evening strolling the beach, picking up beach glass, and watching the sun sink low in the sky.

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Lakeview on the Lake, and would certainly recommend it to anyone needing a quiet, well-maintained spot to kick off their shoes and relax a few.

Lakeview on the lake was a wonderful place to vacation. Our cabin was very clean and was nice to have refreshed every day. The cabin came with everything we needed. The owners were very friendly and helped us with all of our questions. We will definitely be staying again and recommend for a nice close vacation.

It is very nice to stay at a place where the owners (Kelly and Demaris) are right there to take care of your needs. These are two very hard working people and the property is a reflection of their hard work. It is very clean, attractive and well kept. We stayed in one of the mini cottages and other than the low shower being a bit of a challenge for my tall better half, it was very nice for the rate. We certainly enjoyed that beautiful sunset while sipping on a glass of local wine! It is nicely located between Erie and North East and the directions they provide for you to the attractions are very detailed and helpful. If we are ever that way again, you will see us again. Thank you for a nice stay.

Room Tip: Mini cottages are very private for two.

This was our 6th year staying at Lakeview on the lake! We absolutely love it. This is the most peaceful, relaxing place. Kelly and DeMaris(the owners) are wonderful hosts. They treat you with such kindness and respect. They make sure eveything is there you need; they truly make your vacation the perfect getaway. We love to wake up and drink our coffee overlooking the lake and watch the beautiful sunsets. Our son has a great time and never wants to leave. The grounds are well kept and rooms are clean, an absolutely beautiful place to stay. Lakeview is close to the winery's and the bayfront attractions. We recommend Lakeview to all our family and friends. Thanks again for our perfect getaway, see you next year! ~Nathan, Tesa and Devin
