BOOK EARLY! Many lodging options will book full well before our fishing season starts.
Anchor Motel and Cottages
: MY FIRST CHOICE - Great value - can accommodate 6-people in one cottage. Various other lodging options available here too. About 3-miles from marina. Call Anchor directly at 440-466-0726 to book and let them know that you will be charter fishing with Privateer and they will take care of you.
This is a great deal at about $25 per person per night (weeknight) for the 2-bedroom cottage. You are about 10-minute drive to the marina and only about a 5-minute walk to all the fun at Geneva-on-the-Lake strip district - food, arcades, waterslides, Madson Donut shop (my favorite), and yes bars for the nightlife (just don't overdo it the night before your charter...)
Geneva State Park
: THE LOW COST OPTION - camping and cabins available. About 2-miles from marina. There is also a paved walking trail from camp grounds to the marina but I suggest that you drive to marina for fishing as you will have a heavy cooler to take back with you.
If you are looking to stay for really low cost. Take a serious look at the Geneva State Park campground. You can pitch a tent and hang out in front of a campfire with 5 of your fishing pals for only about $20 (total for all). Plus the campground gives you a toilet, a shower, and a fish cleaning station (I still recommend paying someone to clean that batch of fish - too much work after a day on the water). Not a bad deal for less than $3.34 per person per night. Oh, and did I mention that it is only about a 5-minute drive to the marina - very important on those hot summer days when your captain will want to be leaving the dock at 4:30am - yup, that is 4:30am if you want to hit the hot morning bite.

The Lodge at Geneva-On-The-Lake
: LUXURY - Closest to a 5-star hotel in area - but you pay for it... The Lodge is directly adjacent to the marina and is about 1-mile walk via shoreline bridge or 2-mile drive to marina. Book early (very early) if you want to stay at the Lodge.
