We were lucky enough to experience a beautiful, crisp fall day when we arrived at the Lodge at Geneva on the Lake. With breathtaking views of the southern shores of Lake Erie near Geneva State Park in the heart of the beautiful Ohio Wine Country, what began as the Buckeye State’s first summer resort town is now a very popular, four season star among vacation destinations, Geneva-on-the-Lake is set in Northeast Ohio’s most attractive countryside. The Lodge has plenty to offer families, from romantic escapes, family fun, celebrations, and much more.
Whether you enjoy skiing the lakefront trail, savoring the flavors of wine country or exploring Geneva State Park – The Lodge at Geneva serves signature experiences all year long.
There are plenty of ducks for the duck lovers in your family.
It was quiet, with not many guests checked in during our off season fall visit. With plenty of activities, the resort is much busier during the warm spring and summer months.

Cruise The Lodge at Geneva’s wine shuttle
, take a family bike ride or enjoy the events next door at Geneva-on-the-Lake. In the colder months, glide over the cross-country skiing tracks along the Lake Erie shore or take a snowshoe hike – it’s easy, fun and a great way to relax and reset. We were interested in the wine shuttle, which runs every day but didn’t have time to partake during our short visit. Maybe next time! There are plenty of both indoor and outdoor activities at the resort, you can check them out here.
After dropping off our luggage and other belongings in our room, we set out with our camera and a goal to see the area and take some photos. First, we strolled down to the quiet and beautiful beach. What a great place to relax and have a ball during the warmer months!
The lake is just a short walk away from the many luxurious accommodations at the resort.
