WONDERFUL FAMILY WEEKEND
WONDERFUL FAMILY WEEKEND
We had a wonderful, relaxing two night weekend family get-a-way. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. There was enough room for all of us (6 adults). Everything you need is available to you, just bring food and beverages. The beds are really comfortable and with all the fresh air, you sleep like a baby. The owner, Mike, was more than accomodating to our needs. Thanks again Mike for allowing us to use your lovely cottage...We will most definately be back!

Had a wonderful stay at this property for a summer getaway with the family. Mike was great to work with and provided some terrific tips for things our kids would like to do in the area. The house was clean and comfortable. We hit the grocery store and we were ready to go! The golf cart came in handy for quick running around. Highlight of the trip was the nightly bonfires on the beach with lots of s'mores and stories! Highly recommend this property!!

What a Weekend!
What a Weekend!
I visited this cottage with a group of my friends (7 of us total) for a 3-day weekend getaway and let me tell you what a great time we had! The house was clean, everything was in working order, and I have never met a nicer group of people than the McEnerys. I spoke with Mike on the phone several times and he was very easy to work with considering I wanted to bring my 1 year old golden retriever along with us. We had no issues and I even managed to pick up a few new jokes to tell around the water cooler! Mike's son, Joey, was very welcoming and he showed us where everything was and how it worked. The beach was incredible and the privacy was wonderful! We were able to spend the nights gazing up at the incredibly clear stars in the sky (I don't get a lot of that in Akron ;) and the days kicking back on the beach with a cold beer in hand! My friends and I like to try different places around the Lake Erie area, but it is safe to say that we will definitely be revisiting the McEnerys and their cottage. Thanks guys and keep up the good work!

The pictures of the property are very misleading. The beach is not near as close as you would think. The golf cart that comes included in the fees is very old and doesn't work properly. Which was really hard for me because I planned to use it instead of trying to walk the uneven terrain with my severe MS. The house is not listed as wheelchair accessible, but I asked about navigating the home I was told one step into the house. Not the truth! I am not wheelchair confined so I thought it would be ok, but those five days I had to use it more than ever to get everywhere because there is nothing but rocks and sand which I can not walk on and the golf cart did not work. Navigating the house was very rough for me due to the abnormally large steps into nearly every room. The one bathroom you can see in the pictures you have to be a tall person to even sit on the toilet. Upon meeting with the owners son when arriving to the home the overpowering smell when opening the door was so bad my dogs wouldn't enter. That explained the large amounts of air fresheners and febreeze. Their idea of cleaning. The bathrooms were filthy and needed cleaned prior to use. Even the linens had a bad smell. The son said the place was locked up awhile but looking at the reviews it was booked a few days before us so that's odd. I would not recommend this place to anyone! My husband had to fix a few things in the house and when we tried contacting the owner he never responded. The cottage is very outdated. We even attempted to get someone to fix the cart, but no one seemed to want to do it. Now I see why. Dealing with this owner is not an easy task. I should have realized something was wrong when the place was the only house available last minute during the busiest month of the year. The beach itself is great. Very private. The other people in the area on that side of the bridge are really friendly. The house is not lake view it's more like trailer court view. I would recommend this area just another cottage.

Owner response: Response: 1. Our cottage is NOT handicap accessible. We make no claim to the contrary. 2. Golf cart is not normally available for rent. Renter was permitted to use it solely for use to and from the beach. The Renter overloaded the golf cart and (illegally) drove it on public roads damaging the golf cart. 3. The cottage was cleaned before these renters moved in. 4. Pertaining to the overall dissatisfaction of the renter, she had the opportunity to move in before she paid. At the time of her payment, she was very satisfied with the property. Lastly, it seems there were no issues with the rental until after the renter was told she would be charged for the necessary repairs to the golf cart. These guests will not be invited back. If you have any questions regarding this experience, please feel free to call. Regards, Michael J. McEnery
Great vacation rental
Great vacation rental
My family stayed a week at this rental and enjoyed every minute. It was close enough to the nearby activities we wanted to do but far enough out for our privacy. It is equipped with lots of extras we didn't have to buy or rent. We had our own private beach. This rental is perfect for relaxation. Mike McEnery was very accommodating to our needs. The only complaint I have is we needed more vacation time. I highly recommend this rental.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I am a Licensed Commercial Realtor in Central Ohio for over 34 years. Married 34 years / 3 children/ 4 grandchildren and Jake our dog. I love Lake Erie...and the Ohio State Buckeyes!
Why the Owner Chose Oak Harbor:
I have been going up to Lake Erie for over 48 years vacationing at a cottage in Ohio or Canada. I Spent weeks trying to find a cottage west of Port Clinton,Catawba Islands. It is especially unique due to the private beach access just steps from the front door.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is very quiet and the neighbors are awesome. Love to have our favorite beverage and fires on the beach. You can put your boat or jet ski in @ the marina next door, then drive around the point at Turtle Creek, anchor and walk in to the beach in less than 3 minutes! Close to Port Clinton to Put in Bay and the Lake Erie Islands.Only 38 miles to Cedar Point.
