My daughter surprised me with a trip to Kelly's Island, Ohio and researched the area Bed and Breakfast options. She chose "A Water's Edge" based on the reviews and I must say the inn lived up to everthing! A beautiful B&B that harkens to another time and charm that makes you feel welcome as soon as you enter the front...

Perfect stay, wonderful breakfast each morning. View is amazing, and Tim and Beth treated us like we were a part of their family. We plan on doing this little 3 day getaway every year. The home is beautiful , it was built in 1991 I believe but has the beauty and craftsmanship of a home built a 100 years ago.

We wanted a nice relaxing weekend close to the water and this was perfect. The views from the room were beautiful and the deck on the water was sooooo relaxing. The breakfasts were superb and evening snacks with Sangria a special treat. We'll be back!

My husband and I just spend the nicest 4 days as guests at Water's Edge Retreat. Beth and Tim are great hosts, the property is beautiful and the breakfasts are to die for. We really enjoyed sitting out by the beach in the evening, listening to the waves and looking at the stars. Would recommend reserving the "honeymoon suite" -...

My husband and only had two days for a honeymoon and we decided this B&B would be ideal. We had never stayed in a B&B so we had really no idea what to expect. We were not disappointed. We had so much fun relaxing by the water... What a view! The food and hospitality were amazing. We loved our room......

My husband and I were celebrating our 21st Wedding Anniversary. We chose the Water's Edge on Kelley's Island. The view from our room, The Mary Louise, was fabulous! You can see Cedar Point across the lake...including the fireworks at night. The private beach area was perfect for morning coffee and evening sunset. The innkeepers, Tim and Beth, were friendly and...

My husband and I had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before, had never been to Kelleys Island, and were looking forward to being alone, so we were hesitant, but based on the reviews here, took a chance. We were so glad we did. We booked the honeymoon suite. It was fabulous. The property is very quiet. The owners...

My wife and I came here shortly after our wedding for a relaxing couple of days. Tim and Beth were so warm and calm, we immediately felt at home. Tim took plenty of time to tell us all about the island (our first time). The breakfast they offer is AMAZING, some of the best food on the island right here!...

My wife and I have been staying at A Waters Edge Resort for may years. We have found the facilities quiet and well kept.
