Property description

Time to plan your 2015 lake vacation. Some nice dates still open.

Make family memories in this charming, historic lakefront cottage. This roomy, lakefront cottage is the perfect site for a family vacation or gathering. Well furnished and meticulously cleaned and maintained by the owners, past visitors say that pictures can't convey how charming this cottage is. The large wrap-around enclosed porch with it's comfortable furnishings lets you relax with a drink or book in the lake breezes. A sandbox, climbing tree, and rope swing entertain children in the front yard. Lake Erie is 100 feet away with easy access by stairs. Located on a private lane with more barefoot vacationers than cars, the neighborhood invites visitors to unwind.

An attached wood deck and spacious yard allow for sunbathing and viewing of the ever-changing lake. Stairs lead down to a wooden deck, a pier and a ladder into the lake for on-site swimming. A public, sandy beach is two miles away or see our link to many close by beaches in Erie county that you can explore.

The large dining room table and fully-equipped kitchen allow for preparation of any meal imaginable. Upstairs, the sleeping area contains 4 bedrooms separated by walls and doors with all rooms opening to a common ceiling. (Sounds are shared, but visual privacy is provided.) Bedrooms all have newer beds. Whole house exhaust fans remove the warm air in the summer so the lake breezes can be enjoyed. Living area, bathrooms and porch have all been recently remodeled. The on site owners will make you feel right at home.

Children and adults of all ages enjoy the rustic charm of this cottage, located in Hartley Beach, a quiet cul-de-sac off the main road. If we are full, we recommend vrbo 23210 located a few doors away. Located in Huron, rated one of America's Coolest Small Towns in 2015 by Budget Travel. Twenty minutes from the larger city of Sandusky, home of Cedar Point and Kalahari waterpark.
We rent to other homeowners or adults over 25 y.o. who agree to respect our home as if it was their own.

Year Purchased: 1971

About: Formerly summer residents, we now live in Huron year round, just next door to this historical cottage. We enjoy sharing our place with family and visitors.

Why Huron:
We bought this cottage many years ago when our 10 children were young so we could all enjoy Lake Erie and the simple pleasures of summer.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The unique benefits of this property revolve around the amazing great Lake Erie and the relaxed atmosphere of this neighborhood, which we rarely feel the need to leave.
