Geneva-on-the-Lake, on the shores of Lake Erie about an hour’s drive east of Cleveland, has been a summer getaway spot for more than 100 years. There’s plenty to do there. You can stroll the boardwalk and savor the fair-style food and arcade games; sip (surprisingly good) Ohio wine at one of several area wineries; or shop for antiques and collectibles at the many antique stores and flea markets.
Today, Geneva-on-the-Lake’s century homes co-exist with mid (20th) century cottages and bed and breakfast inns to make a cozy–and captivating–collection of accommodations. There’s even a modern Lodge at Geneva State Park at the edge of the resort area with sweeping view of Lake Erie.
Geneva State Park Lodge – Located at the western edge of Geneva-on-the-Lake, the 698-acre Geneva State Park offers miles of biking and hiking trails, a marina, fishing pier, and a white sand beach. The modern lodge there features 109 guest rooms (many of which have views of Lake Erie), an indoor swimming pool, restaurant with an outdoor patio, and fitness room. The Lodge is within walking distance of most Geneva-on-the-Lake attractions.
