Within our beautiful state, there is a real gem.

The Lodge at Geneva-On-The-Lake is spectacularly set on Lake Erie and offers 109 rooms and suites, as well as 25 two-bedroom cottages.

As you drive up to the grand entrance, there is plenty of free parking as well as views of the lake to get you excited.

Entering the resort, the comfortable lobby has several sitting areas, a fireplace, computers for use, and a gift shop. There is also a full-service restaurant that offers a breakfast buffet, dinner, and a bar. (Currently, lunch is not offered).

Lodge rates can range in the $100s and up for a room depending on the bedroom category and time of year. They also offer room packages that may include such perks as complimentary breakfast or a AAA discount.

I stayed in a Deluxe Category room which included two double beds and a sofa. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a table and chairs, a sitting area, and a desk. My window had a view of the lake, and the hotel toiletries offered were from the brand Bath and Body Works.

There was a coffee maker and mini-refrigerator in the room and depending on availability, microwaves, cribs, and rollaway beds are available upon request. Do note that there is a no pet policy for all guests.

Besides the spacious rooms, the lodge offers many amenities and activities for guests of all ages.

Do you enjoy a glass of wine? This AAA three-diamond resort bills itself as “Ohio’s Wine Country Resort,” and is located just minutes from over 20 wineries. The resort offers a wine shuttle that departs from the Lodge entrance, as well as a tour featuring the Lodge’s Certified Wine Specialist.

Do you enjoy outdoor adventures? Located on the property is Lake Erie Canopy Tours, which offers ziplining and adventure courses.

Do you want some R and R? Both indoor and outdoor pools are available for guests, as well as hot tubs, a fire pit, and spa services offered by partner Lakehouse Inn and Spa just down the road.
How about exercise options? There is a workout room, bike rentals, and a walking path by the lake.

Do you want to venture from the resort? Just down the road is “The Strip,” which offers arcades, games, restaurants, and casual food options. You may want to grab breakfast or lunch at Mary’s Kitchen Home Cooking, which was first established in 1946 and still includes recipes on the menu from when the restaurant first opened.

Keep driving and within 15 minutes, you can see 19 famed covered bridges in Ashtabula County. The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake is a place to go to be active or relax, during any season. At the end of the day, sit on a bench or take a stroll on the lakeside walkway-take a deep breath- and enjoy this special destination!
