Featuring 109 residential-style rooms and suites, as well as 25 picturesque cottages on three adjacent, lakeside acres, The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake enjoys a stellar location on Lake Erie flanking Geneva State Park. Accommodations have a pleasant, residential atmosphere, and all come with a nice array of basics including coffee makers and mini-fridges. With two bedrooms for up to six people, the pretty cottages have kitchenettes, gas fireplaces and covered porches, and are a top choice for family or group getaways.
The hotel makes a great base from which to discover Northeast Ohio wines, beginning at on-site Horizons Restaurant, a glass-enclosed, lake-view dining area with a menu of limited production Ohio wines. Also enveloped in glass, to take advantage of the beautiful landscape, is the indoor pool; there's an outdoor pool too for the warmer months. A small but well-equipped fitness center is available 24/7, and a house conference center features 8,500 square feet of flexible space. A popular day-trip is pedaling the scenic bike trails around Lake Erie; the area's 17 historic covered bridges include the longest covered bridge in the United States.
