Treat yourself to this new year round lake house with all the comforts of home -- maybe even more! We are steps from the Lake Erie beach, the second house from the lake, on a quiet road -- we are closer to the lake than some of the lakefront homes making this home a great value. Located in North East, PA… we are on Erie's Wine Trail where you can venture out for tastings and events at 11 wineries within 8 miles. Adults love our decor, furnishings and thoughtfully supplied house. Children are delighted here.
We offer the beach, the lake, many wineries, a quaint downtown and world-class fishing. You'll notice a slower pace of life and a small town atmosphere. Like us on Facebook - Clement's Lake Erie Cottages for more about our homes and area.
Ladies: We love ladies getaway groups. We are on the Lake Erie Wine Trail where wineries offer year round tasting. Bella Day Spa is close by and you can reserve the party room for your ladies to meet up between spa appointments. Ask me about private wine glass painting classes in-home and for other ideas for your weekend.
Steelhead fishermen and guided fishing tours are welcome. We are right between 16 Mile & 20 Mile Creeks, but also close enough to Walnut and Elk Creeks where you could drive to where the fish are hitting. My brothers are part of a competitive fishing team here. Ask me for Lake Erie fishing charter recommendations.
Relax in the comfort of this stylish home which was completely renovated and professionally decorated... a beautiful year round cottage living setting inside and out.
Larger groups please see our other listing #336468. We have two vacation rentals on the same street -- just 3 homes apart. Rent BOTH homes to accomodate up to 16 people. If my calendars are booked for the dates you need, ask me for other recommendations.
THE LAKE HOUSE
Main Floor: living area, kitchen, eating area, 3 bedrooms (Q, F, 2T) and bathroom with shower/tub unit. We also provide a Queen air mattress.
The fully equipped kitchen includes stainless appliances, large Thermador refrigerator/freezer with icemaker, microwave, Keurig and carafe coffee makers, dishwasher, garbage disposal, blender, mixer and crockpot.
Second Floor: Loft living area equipped with 42' plasma TV, Blue-ray Disc player, cable channels, comfy sectional sofa, board games and toys. We have lake views from the loft.
Other Features: - central air conditioning - a must for hot summer nights - warm and cozy in the winter, fully insulated - not drafty like older cottages - ample city water (no well water or low supply) - public sewer (no septic issues). - local art of Tajana Roehl and Tamara Maas
Washer and dryer are provided in the garage. Washer is 'winterized' from November through April, and cannot be used during those months.
THE LAKE HOUSE PROPERTY - very private, quiet road with only 12 homes, no thru traffic - private beach for residents/guests only - one house from the beach entrance - closer to beach and easier access than some lakefront homes . easy walkable beach access (no bluff/cliff/staircase) - unique for the area and important to consider for taking beach chairs and coolers to the beach - natural Lake Erie shoreline with stones, sand, driftwood (please see photos here and on my other listing #336468).
We like to take beach walks, swim, hunt for sea glass and beach treasures, hang out on the beach and watch sunsets.
Detached 1.5-car garage with full size washer and dryer and pool table. Concrete driveway parking can accommodate up to four cars or a boat -- or a game of pick-up basketball - hoop provided. Or try four-square, hopscotch or chalk art on the driveway. Launch your kayak or sailboard right from the beach, or your jet ski or larger boat from the Marina, 1.4 miles east. We launch our fishing boat from the Marina and then anchor it in front of our beach during the day so we can come and go.
The home uniquely sits on 2 lots with large grassy areas for playing yard games. Kids love the tree swing. The backyard is private... only the yard and the creek about 15 feet down with access points via stairs or level at the beach. We provide a metal fire pit in the backyard or you can enjoy a small camp fire at the beach. Driftwood is always plentiful for a beach fire or the fire pit (no need to bring wood). Popular fishing streams, 20 Mile and 16 Mile are within a few miles. Walnut Creek and Elk Creek are drivable from here.
LAKE LIFE Walk on the shore, look for beach glass and roast marshmallows at the beach as you take in beautiful sunsets. We head to the beach in the evenings with a cup of wine to view the sunset, a different show each evening. Some nights are cloudy with subtle color and some nights are brilliantly colorful. The kids happily play at the shoreline, in the creek, in the lake and warm-up to the campfire as they make s'mores. Treasures abound year round -- beach glass, beach stones, driftwood, and other ordinary objects weathered to 'treasure-status' by water and time. Kids find their imaginations here.
Bring your bikes. Kids can bike up and down our quiet street. You can be more adventurous and take advantage of longer bike rides as well. Cycling tours and maps available at Lake Country Bike in North East.

Summers feature festivals and weekly outdoor events such as Music in the Vineyards and Picnic in the Park.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I am a stay-at-home soccer/baseball/dance mom and enjoy managing our rental properties as it gives me the chance to meet new people and use my marketing background. I am originally from Erie, PA, a graduate of both Penn State Main and Xavier University (Cincinnati). I worked at Procter & Gamble for 10 years and lived all over the country for 20 years. When our kids became school-aged, we moved back to Erie where they could have a place to call home and have close relationships with extended family.
Why the Owner Chose Erie: As a child, my favorite memories were of visiting this special beach community. My dad's best friend owned this little slice of heaven where kids could be kids, and adults were always in a good mood as they relaxed and enjoyed good company. The tug of good memories was so strong that eventually my parents bought the house next door AND years later, my husband and I bought the other next door home so that we could provide happy traditions and memories for our kids! I have been coming to this place for 40+ years!
The Unique Benefits at this House: I wanted my kids to grow up enjoying the same memories I had... swimming at the beach, combing the shore for beach glass, outdoor bbqs, gathering driftwood for bonfires complete with s'mores, catching minnows and crayfish in the creek behind our house, walking barefoot on a dirt roads to the beach, skipping stones, floating on rafts, painting beach stones and building teepees from fallen tree branches. As an adult, I appreciate getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and entertaining friends or family and their kids just like I remember from those days as a child. When the kids are happy, Mom is happy!
