I love Geneva-on-the-lake. I've gone the last couple of summers when my dad moves his boat from Cleveland to the marina in Geneva State Park (which is right next to the lodge, incidentally) when the fishing heats up there in August.
|Random picture of my dad's of a fish he caught near the lodge sometime last year.|

Seriously this was the view from our room:
We left on Thursday after work. Probably didn't get on the road until after 6:30. It took us just under an hour to get there from my parents' house in Lakewood (where we ditched the kids). We made it in plenty of time to eat dinner at their Horizons Restaurant while watching the sun set over the lake:
|Dinner with a view for the win!|
All of the food was amazing, too:
The next day we enjoyed the complete luxury of no kids waking us up. I also enjoyed a cup of delicious coffee (they have a keurig in each room! I was pretty excited about this feature) on our balcony overlooking the lake:
|Uninterrupted coffee and a lake view. HEAVEN.|

After breakfast we decided to walk off all of the food along their walking path by the lake:
The path runs from the hotel, past the marina, past the beach my kids were playing at above, to the cabins. I believe the whole thing is 2 miles. We didn't walk the length of it this time but I've done it when I was there in the summer and it is lovely. It would be expecially lovely on a bike:

We debated enjoying some of the lodge's other amenities - more specifically the pool - but since the Ohio Wine flight we had with dinner was so delicious we wanted to check out some of the local wineries on the way home.
|Seriously look at this pool! How amazing would it be to take a swim in this in January with the lake frozen in the background?|
|Outdoor pool not open yet.|
|Playground. Glad we didn't need this one on this trip!|
So the wineries. I had an idea that there were wineries in Geneva area but... well... we've been to Napa and to the Fingerlakes. How could Ohio Wine even compare?
