Situated along the shores of western Lake Erie, and a short 10-minute drive to the world-renown Magee Marsh Boardwalk and the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge to the east, or five minutes west to Maumee Bay State Park, Resort and Conference Center, is the quaint community of Reno Beach. Completely renovated in 2010, our cottage offers birdwatchers a lovely retreat after a hard day sightseeing or chasing birds!!!
Our cottage features three bedrooms, 1 full bath, full living room and dining area, and a fully-equipped kitchen with all appliances, including a washer & dryer. The cottage has a full front porch, and a nice, large deck on the back - relax to the sound of the waves while enjoying the view!
Our place sits on 5 parcels, with many mature trees (which attract lots of migrant birds!) and is adjacent to Lake Erie. A short 2 minute walk up and over the dike, and you are facing a 1/2 mile stretch of beautiful, sandy public beach, perfect for searching for waterfowl and pelagics or just beachcombing. The cottage is located 5 minutes from Maumee Bay State Park, and 40 minutes from Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky.

About the owner: I have traveled to many beautiful places in the world, but the allure of the wetlands and islands of western Lake Erie keep me grounded in NW Ohio. As a naturalist and birdwatcher, there is no better place to be during songbird migration, and the proximity to Toledo allows for visits to our world-class zoo, museums and shopping, all which make for a great place to visit!
Why the Owner Chose Oregon: Why book a hotel room when you can stay in the privacy of a quiet and spotless home?
The Unique Benefits at this House: Roberta sits on five parcels up against a lake-front dike. Ample parking and lots of privacy. Reno Beach is a quiet residential neighborhood with beach-combing & birdwatching opportunities right outside your doorstep!
