Also see my other listing VRBO #324283. We have 2 homes on the same street, only 3 homes apart... See my other listing for more photos. Notice the reviews for both homes on VRBO.com and on Facebook. We have been consistently pleasing our guests since day one in 2009.
-- 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, 1 floor living
-- High ceilings, many windows, spacious, bright and airy
-- Hard floors throughout
-- Living, kitchen & dining areas are open to each other in the center of the home. A very roomy area for family gatherings, crafters, scrapbookers, quilters, or to set up the queen air mattress.
-- The Master Bedroom, bath and laundry room are located on one end of the house. 2 bedrooms are on the opposite side.
-- The living area includes a plasma TV, DVD player, cable channels including ESPN. WiFi throughout.
-- The kitchen includes stainless appliances: refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and toaster.
-- Also provided: blender, mixer, crockpot, coffee bean grinder, cookware, cooking utensils, dishes and eating utensils
-- 3 bedrooms include Q, F and 2T (daybed with trundle). The sofa in the living area converts to a Queen sofa bed. Sleeps 8. Plus we provide a Queen air mattress with battery operated inflation. Plenty of floor space in the living area to set up the air bed, if needed.
We offer year round comfort. Central air-conditioning will cool you on warm summer nights. In cooler seasons, this fully insulated home has a new furnace to keep you warm. Small yard includes firepit and lawn chairs for evening relaxation and roasting marshmallows. The beach allows for more area to play, to treasure hunt (we have beach glass!), swim, skip stones or build a small campfire.
Located in the small town of North East, PA, east of Erie, we're in a small, beautiful, historical cottage neighborhood with a private beach for residents and guests only. Over the years, many of the vintage cottages have been renovated into modern beach homes.
Beach access is easy -- no cliffs, no bluffs, no staircases -- just a short walk 100 yards down our quiet road. We have a natural Lake Erie shoreline with stones and sand where you can swim, hunt for beach glass, skip stones, sunbathe, build driftwood camp fires, roast marshmallows and hot dogs over a fire, make s'mores, walk along the shore or enjoy a glass of wine while watching our fabulous sunsets. Each night is a different show -- my favorite is when the sun 'falls' into the lake. Bring your camera!
We recommend beach stone painting and driftwood painting as a fun activity for all ages. You provide the artists. The beach provides the stones and plenty of driftwood!
Bring your bikes... with only 12 homes on our tucked away street there is very little car traffic between the house and the beach. Older kids can ride around the neighborhood, and you can be more adventurous if you'd like. North East is gorgeous for biking and running with miles of vineyards and orchards.
Launch your kayak, paddleboard or sailboard right from the beach. Ask about kayak and paddleboard rentals. Larger boats and jet skis can be launched from the North East Marina, just 1.5 miles east. Daily and temporary docking available at the North East Marina for a reasonable price. Fishing licenses and bait also available at the North East Marina.
In the heart of Pennsylvania's wine country, you'll see miles of grape vineyards and orchards. Pick-ur-own or buy freshly-picked produce at one of numerous roadside farmstands. Watch wine being made and experience wine tastings as close as 0.5 mile away -- ask me to arrange a private winery tour. If you are lucky enough to visit during grape harvest in September, you'll experience the aroma of ripened grapes on the vine as the aroma fills the town.
Fishermen love our proximity to excellent walleye, perch, lake trout, bass and steelhead fishing -- this is steelhead alley. The North East Marina is 1.4 miles east. We are located between 16 and 20 Mile Creeks. Elk Creek and Walnut Creek are 30-40 minutes. Looking for a Charter? Don't pick blindly. When you stay at any of my homes (owned or managed), and whether you boat fish or creek fish, ask me to put you in touch with my brothers who fish on a pro team locally and offer charters. I can also recommend an awesome fishing guide. Ask your fishing questions here.
Town is 3 miles and offers Sander's grocery store, CVS drug store, art galleries, children's toy store, Boston Bean Cafe, pizza shops, casual restaurants, Bella Day Spa, the new Grape Country Marketplace for local products and artwork, and a new restaurant and bar, The Cork 1794, Lake Country Bike Shop, an antique shop and a coin shop. Don't miss 'Thursdays in the Park' in downtown North East during the summer -- free events each week feature a farmer's market and family entertainment every Thursday during the summer months. Check the North East Chamber of Commerce website for year round events. Summer events include weekly live Music in the Vineyards, Picnic in the Park and Farmer's Markets, and local festivals with the granddaddy of them all -- The North East Firemen's Cherry Festival in July. High Season continues into Fall when the wineries are abuzz with harvesting. WineFest (last weekend of September) and Harvest Wine Fests (the first two weekends of November) are event weekends. Lake Erie Wine Country events occur throughout the year. Surprise your Valentine with the Wine & Chocolate Event in February. Uncorked is a fun March event. Wine & Cheese Weekend occurs in May.
Some guests may prefer to visit on a quieter weekend when the winemakers have more time to spend with each guest. Try winter or spring for a more personal experience and for snow sports at Peek 'n Peak Ski Resort. Wineries are open YEAR ROUND, with the exception of major holidays when some wineries close for one day only.
Are you a shopper? Many people visit Erie to shop with no sales tax on clothing. How about a holiday shopping weekend here! Stay in November or December when the rates are lower and shop 'til you drop.
Or, create your own event. Wine tasting tours for ladies or couples groups are a fun getaway. Add a spa visit while you're here. Visit the Presque Isle Downs & Casino for nightlife. Ask me for my thoughts on your getaway plan. I will help make your planning easy.

About the owner: I am a stay-at-home soccer/dance/baseball 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 but have 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. I am also a Nittany Lion, Xavier Musketeer and Procter & Gamble alum. My husband Duane is a UB Chemist and Chemical Engineer who was transferred into Brand Marketing at Procter & Gamble. He now specializes in Marketing Research/Analytics with expertise in Business Intelligence and Customer Satisfaction. With our cottage rentals it is very important to us to delight our guests with a clean, well-stocked, comfortably furnished home.
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 enjoyed good company. My parents eventually bought the home next door to their friends. Years later, my husband and I bought the house on the opposite side 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 ejoying the same memories I had... swimming at the beach, treasure hunting for beach glass, outdoor bbqs, gathering driftwood for bonfires complete with s'mores and hot dogs, searching for and carving that perfect roasting stick, catching minnows and crayfish in the creek, walking barefoot on dirt roads to the beach, skipping stones, floating on rafts, painting beach stones, and building teepees from fallen branches. As an adult, I appreciate getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and entertaining friends and their kids just like I remember from those days as a child.
