North East apartment description
This Light on the Lake Beachcomber apartment opens directly to some of the deepest beach, approximately 50 yards, in the entire Erie area. The apartment offers a spacious living room and a kitchen with plenty of dining area.
The deck overlooking the beach features its own dining table with deck chairs. The property includes a 30-foot high lighthouse. It is a modern construction but not functional.
Several charter fishing boat concessions are next door, at the North East Marina. The Caribbean-theme Crazy Parrot Restaurant is also next door, if no one wants to cook. One winery is less than a mile away and others are an easy drive. Very flat roads allow for easy bicycling.

So we recently rented the apartment on lower level. We did not stay upstairs at the bed and breakfast. So this review is for people looking to rent the lower level and what to expect as I was not informed what exactly to expect. Lets just say you get what you pay for. The price was cheap so I wasn't expecting much. The view is gorgeous. and its quaint and quiet. Prepare to spend your last day cleaning everything down to washing the sheets if you want your cleaning fee back. If not then prepare to spend cleaning fee to not worry about it. The cleaning list is very detailed. Expect lots of spiders. I didn't see mice but there were mouse droppings and urine under kitchen sink and in master bedroom on the bed under sheet (yuck). Lots of cob webs in all corners. I counted 6 spiders in master bedroom closet. It is a basement so it's very damp and musky smelling. There are lots of rules you have to recycle 7 sort trash (not a bad thing) I'm not a smoker but one of the guests with us is and they couldn't even smoke outside on deck they had to walk to road or beach. And then there was even comments made about that. I am an ex smoker who personally can not stand the smell of smoke anymore but really saying it was gonna smell up the place cause they would bring the smell in on their clothes is a bit obnoxious. "Quiet time" is 11 (not a bad thing). I will not be back to this place nor recommend it. There is NOTHING to do in the area everything is like 30 min away. I was more worried with the rules than relaxed on my vacation. Mind you I'm not a party-er I brought my 6 month old son I just wanted to relax but I felt like I was being watched 24/7 This is also my first experience at a bed and breakfast so maybe this is how they are. I don't really know but I will not be doing this again. I didn't eat the breakfast so I really can not rate that.

Owner response: We're sorry that our guest was unhappy with some aspects of our apartment, but we still appreciate the feedback. We do try our best to assure that the apartment is cleaned appropriately before each new guest arrives. As our reviewing guest pointed out, it is a basement apartment, but that's not an excuse for anything. We intend that the apartment be as clean as one would expect of any living space. The fact is that lakefront properties can be humid and be attractive to spiders, but we do take measures to control and eradicate inside the apartment. The detailed instructions that the guest mentioned are for each guest's protection. Without detailed instructions, guests are either left to decide for themselves what to clean, or to pay a higher professional cleaning fee. The requirement for smoking locations is for the protection of guests in other parts of our property. Smoke from the lower level can rise through the deck flooring and enter other rooms or be a nuisance to others on the upper decks. We are not sure why the guest felt she was being watched "24/7". We don't have time to do that, and wouldn't if we did have the time. We suspect it is because we noticed someone smoking (once) where they shouldn't, and respectfully asked that they move to the beach. Frankly, we would do the same thing again if we noticed inappropriate smoking, and we think our guests appreciate our concern. We encourage guests to let us know (preferably while they are still here) about problems they may find. We will take steps to address their valid concerns. Again, we do appreciate the feedback, late though it be. We will try to do better for out part! We could say a lot about things to do in our neighborhood, but that would be a chamber of commerce speech. Summary: swimming in the lake; walking on the beach; evening beach fires; charter fishing next door in marina; miniature golf and regulation golf; wineries; small town shops, museums, and resturants. All within 5 miles of us.
