Geneva On The Lake House Vanishes

Posted by LOTGK on June 7, 2013

I have been going to Geneva On The Lake for over 50 years. Way back in the 1970’s erosion from Lake Erie began affecting the beach and the highway that leads into the small resort town.

One house I always kept my eye on coming in was a small gray house on the lake side of the road. Every year, the house edged closer to the sea. The houses on either side of the gray house methodically succumbed to the ravages of the sea.

Last year, the little gray house was on the verge of dropping over the side. It was now abandoned, windows boarded up, doors nailed shut, a mobile home sharing the lot. Last week coming in for our first Summer visit to Geneva, the house was gone.

To me, that house was almost as iconic to Eddie’s Grill, the most popular joint at Geneva On The Lake. I stopped, snapped the photo above and continued to Geneva looking back in the rear view mirror once or twice before pressing on to Eddie’s Grill.

The Signs Are Everywhere You Look

Posted by LOTGK on May 21, 2011

Suicide Is Painless

Every Summer we venture out to Geneva-On-The-Lake (A local weekend vacation spot that time forgot) at least several times to get our fill of world-famous cheeseburger’s at Eddie’s Grill, super size french fries at Times Square Restaurant, and just plain old-fashioned good food down at the Old Firehouse Winery. I must have passed this sign at least one hundred times and never really took notice of it until the other day. It reminds me of the old television series M.A.S.H. and its iconic destination sign.

On a whim I decided to inspect the sign more closely. To my amazement, my secret Grassy Knoll Institute headquarters was listed on the sign. Holy Hell! How did Woody (The owner of Old Firehouse Winery) know the location of our secret lair?

However, I calmed down a bit after realizing that our headquarters were 666 and 2 tenths of a mile from the sign, not 666 miles listed on the sign. Our secret is still safe.

Speaking of secret places,

Geneva-On-The-Lake is open for business as I type.
If you like good food, visit one of the three places mentioned above.
If you like magic, visit Whipps Magic on the strip. Go there late at night, that’s when he’s open.
If you like Karaoke, Time Square restaurant lets you belt out your favorite tune nightly. If you like amusement park rides, sorry, Erieview Park was dismantled but the Ferris Wheel sill stands and is located on the cliff overlooking Lake Erie.
If you like donuts, visit Madsens.
If you like a good time, I’ll see you in Geneva.

Eddie’s Grill Counter View Video

Posted by LOTGK on September 5, 2010

As labor Day approaches on Monday, Eddie’s Grill, the 1950’s style iconic hamburger stand will be closing for the season. Eddie’s Grill has the best cheeseburgers in Ohio. We visited Eddie’s Grill last weekend and bellied up to the counter to place our order.

As you can see, Eddie’s was crowded Saturday afternoon. We were lucky to even get a seat. There were about 25-30 people in line to order take out. Our waitress was friendly and very efficient. Our order was up in less than 10 minutes.

If you plan to visit Eddie’s Grill this season, you need to hurry. Eddie’s is open this Labor Day weekend, the 10th and 11th of September, and the final two days 17th and 18th of September.

Geneva On The Lake – The Landing

Posted by LOTGK on March 22, 2010

Geneva On The Lake - The Landing 2007

Geneva On The Lake, once a hot spot location for all ages lies dormant under a melting shroud of snow. In October of 2006 Erieview Park was ripped apart and sold piece by piece at auction. All that stood in the aftermath was a pile of rubbish and dirt piles.

When we returned in the Summer of 2007, on July 13th, our wedding anniversary, we found the above bill board posted where Erieview Park once stood. Reading the sign, it promised many wonderful attractions. We are still waiting for these attractions!

2008 brought bulldozers leveling the land and stripping away all that was left of the land. It became a huge dirt bowl and when it rained, a muddy mess.

In 2009, the Ferris Wheel returned positioned in a new place behind the Firehouse Winery. Rides were $2.75 each. The rest of the area was still a barren wasteland. As promised on the sign above, there was no Festival Plaza, no Boardwalk, no Amphitheater, no retail shops, no Food and drink locations, no Microbrewery. Only the Ferris Wheel. In three years time, only the Ferris Wheel.

Coincidentally, the sign above was taken down. Probably to avoid other people posting updates on it like this blog.

We will be heading up to Geneva On The Lake once again this Summer to have lunch at the Time Square restaurant and dinner at Eddie’s Grill. And to see the progress, if any on the promised Festival Plaza. I will report the findings of course.

Geneva On The Lake – Past And Present

Posted by LOTGK on September 7, 2009

Geneva On The Lake 1960's

Geneva On The Lake 1960's

.
In the 1950’s and 60’s, Geneva On The Lake was “The Place” to go for the Summer weekends. Geneva had it all. On the Geneva strip, there was a mile of shops, restaurants, attractions, even an amusement park. Eddie’s Grill, Madsen Donuts, Firehouse Winery, and Time Square restaurant famous for their pile of fries order. Geneva was where all the cool kids hung out, including the many motorcycle gangs that would congregate on the strip by Annie’s restaurant.

Below the strip was Lake Erie and miles of white sandy beaches where bikini clad babes would shake and bake all day. The water was clear and and non-polluted. There was a pier and yes, people would actually swim in the great lake.

Beach Entrance

Beach Entrance

.
Flash forward forty plus years to the present. This twisted piece of rusted metal were once the entrance to the beach. These are the same white steps in the post card picture above.

The weeds are overgrown and it is not a well traveled path anymore. The steps are rickety but they still function.

Lake Geneva 2009

Lake Geneva 2009

.
Referring back to the post card picture above. This is what the beach and water look like today. As you can see, the pier is gone, the white sand is gone, the foliage is now weeds. Gone are the bikini clad babes sunbathing and in their place, large cement breakers now dominate what beach is left. Erosion has won this battle. No one swims there now or rarely even ventures down to the so-called beach.

Geneva Erosion 2009

Geneva Erosion 2009

.
Again, referring to the post card above, this is what is now at the bend in the beach. Round cement breakers litter the rocky eroded beach supposedly to eliminate anymore erosion. Not that it matters now.

The beach is dead. This is no longer a place where the cool kids hang out. In fact, no one hangs out at this place anymore. There are only the occasional few like myself that make the trek down the rusted steps and take in the now sad view that once was a beautiful place to visit.

Eddie’s Grill will be closing next week as Labor day signals the end of Summer and most of the businesses on Geneva On The Lake board up for the winter. For those in the area, now is the time to visit Geneva before it’s too late for this year.
