More Lakeside Memories

Earlier this week I told you that we went on a mini-vacation to Lakeside, Ohio ~ one of our favorite places on earth. I thought I'd share a few more photos & memories made in this unique & wonderful place.

Once again, this is our dear friends' family cottage. Many enjoyable memories over the years in this sweet place.

Time goes slowly at Lakeside, don't you just love this old dial phone?

I enjoy cooking in this kitchen. Since most of the cooking utensils, pots & pans, plates, etc seem to have been there since our friends' grandparents bought the cottage, decades ago, it's like cooking in my Grandma's kitchen.

This is the most coveted chair in the cottage!

Maggie enjoys Lakeside, too. Everything from watching squirrels run past the cottage door to walks on the foot-paths along the lake.

Twice a week, a farmer's market comes into Lakeside . . .

. . . & it attracts all the best people.

One day, DD#2 & C & I went antiquing in Marblehead & found this great little cafe'.

And, of course, you can't go to Marblehead w/o seeing the Marblehead Lighthouse (seen on many Ohio license plates).

Back at Lakeside, you HAVE to visit the historic Hotel Lakeside, built in the late 1800's. It is lovingly restored.

Pull up a porch rocker & listen to the water, read a good book or enjoy good conversation.

Then go inside & walk through the living area . . .

. . . on your way to a great supper.

After supper you HAVE to have a yummy frozen drink from Coffee & Cream . . .

And end the day w/a casual walk around the cottage neighborhoods & take a few minutes to relax on the pier.

Ahhhhh . . .

Blessings from Ohio . . . Kim<><

    Thank you for sharing your vacation...was like I was there...well, almost LOL.


  3. It's been a long time since we've been up to the islands. I never knew of Lakeside...something we'll have to look into if my husband ever finds gainful employment again in Ohio.. I will give this a look see for things to do...looks like you had a really nice relaxing time...I'm interested in going thru the old hotel...I never knew...thanks for sharing..only 1 hr or so from where we live...

  4. Thanks for sharing your vacation moments and pictures with us. I loved it all. I think Lakeside must be a wonderful place to relax and soak in the atmosphere. I would love to sit on the porch and read a good book. I loved the picture of the couple in 1800's wear. I really like reading about that era.
    Keep on enjoying those special moments.
