Hearthside Grove Luxury RV Resort-min

Our Story, Our Dream … Eric and Diane Frantz

This is us … our story about seeing and grabbing an opportunity, building partnerships, and pursuing our passion.

Hearthside Grove Lake Erie is our dream. We grew up camping all over the country. As adults, our camping evolved from tents to trailers to our current class A motorcoach. We were amazed to discover Hearthside Grove Petoskey Michigan while vacationing in 2017. Soon after, we met Craig Rose, whose family built Hearthside Grove, one of the premier motorcoach resort destinations in the country. Discussions lead to a partnership with Craig that culminated in finding the perfect property in Northeast Ohio just a short walk from Lake Erie and surrounded by the coastal forest of Geneva State Park. The perfect location for another Hearthside Grove resort.

Eric’s career spans over 30 years as owner of a lodging consulting firm and management positions at performing arts centers and full-service hotels, most recently as the general manager of The Lodge and Conference Center at Geneva-on-the-Lake. Diane worked in the corporate world — insurance, legal and accounting fields for over two decades prior to starting her own cheesecake business while raising our family.

We love people and share a passion for helping others. This is our dream. Our family welcomes you to Hearthside Grove Lake Erie and the beautiful shores of Lake Erie.
