Property description

This relaxing and charming home is available the week of the Republican Convention. Located one hour from Downtown Cleveland.

Any season of the year, ever-changing Lake Erie provides the entertainment while your family and friends make memories together in this charming cottage.
Because we love spending time here so much, we have completely remodeled this historic cottage adding all the comforts of home. The highest compliments come from our past guests who consistently tell us that the clean, comfortable house and proximity of the lake exceed their expectations. The panoramic views of Lake Erie from the kitchen, living room and dining room are amazing. A modern half bath and laundry room complete the first floor. Upstairs are 3 private bedrooms with original hardwood floors (one queen, one double and 3 single beds) and an updated full bathroom.
The lakefront deck and large yard invite guests outside and a fire ring is located at the water's edge and every season brings different birds to watch including bald eagles, purple martins, cranes and ducks. You can fish or swim from the property using large stepping stones or a set of stairs leading into the water. Meticulously maintained and cleaned by the owners, the house is very nicely furnished, with special attention to bedding, linens, bath and kitchen conveniences so you feel right at home. We rent to other home owners who are non-smokers over 25 years old and who agree to respect the home as if it was their own. We want others to enjoy Lake Erie when we cannot be here.

Located on a private lane with more barefoot vacationers than cars. Sandy beaches are everywhere, including a mile-long public sandy beach 2 miles away and a state nature preserve beach within walking distance. See our link to all the nearby Lake Erie beaches. Budget Travel rated Huron one of America's Coolest Small Towns in 2015. Conveniently located one hour from Cleveland and 20 minutes from Cedar Point and Marblehead.

Nearby managers (and long time residents) can help you with most any of your vacation needs after you arrive. If we are full, we recommend vrbo 26376 located a few doors away.

VRBO Bear catching some sun at this great lakeside location! 08/27/2003

VRBO Bear stayed here:

This Lake Erie cottage is in a super location for anyone who is vacationing in northern Ohio. The cottage sits peacefully on the shore of Lake Erie and is located just off of Highway 6. It is just a few miles from Cedar Point, home to the biggest collection of super coasters in the USA! If roller coasters are not your thing, then don't worry, you have Lake Erie right in your own backyard. If you are into Summer fun, just rent a boat or jet ski and hit the water for some cool fun.

This vacation cottage has plenty of room for a little bear and his travelling buddies. All three of us had a bedroom of our own and there was even an extra bed in the loft. We had a full kitchen to cook up a meal for a hungry bear, and a dining room that looked out over the lake. What a beautiful view!!! At night we enjoyed the sound of the waves hitting against the shore as well as "kicking back" in front of the TV and watching a movie. The comfortable living room had a fireplace and was equipped with a television and DVD-VCR player.

Our hosts made us feel right at home. They were there to greet us when we arrived and even brought us fresh peaches (which a bear really loves) and several ears of corn, fresh out of the garden. We've never gotten that kind of service from the Holiday Inn.

So whether you want a quiet relaxing place to escape to, or a fun filled adventure, it's all right here on Ohio's north coast. You can fish the week away, play golf, boat, ski, or head down the highway to Cleveland and take in an Indians baseball game, or visit my favorite, the "Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame." It is all conveniently located near Huron, Ohio and this "Vacationland" cottage.

Signed, VRBO Bear

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: The owners met here in Hartley Beach and have been married ever since. Now living in Columbus with jobs that keep us much too far from Lake Erie, we love spending our free time here.

Why the Owner Chose Huron:
We chose to buy a cottage so our children could grow up on the shores of Lake Erie. We chose this location because of our family and great neighbors who live on this private lane of a dozen houses.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is truly special to find the friendly vacation atmosphere that this neighborhood has. Lake Erie is a powerful attraction that you have to experience to understand. Year round, this is our idea of a get away!
