Property description

2015 is the 14th season for our Lighthouse Lodge. Read carefully. Please first take a look at our virtual tour (updated 3.31.2015) by searching tours (dot) gotrobo (dot) 56536. Or, first visit us at our site LighthouseLodgeOH (dot) net. We strongly recommend that you contact us directly in a simple phone call and keep all your private, personal information safe and secure. Our phone number is in the right column under Jeff's photo (click on the tab). Our apologies for that inconvenient foolishness. We are not permitted to put our phone number or email address within any text in this listing; hence LighthouseLodgeOH (dot) net--which you really should review. Be careful to read to the conditions to which you agree when you enter your information at this or any website. It may be said here, too, that this website requires we log in and search for your phone number and email address which they keep hidden and for which they retain ownership. THE QUOTES PROVIDED THROUGH THIS SITE'S FORMAT ARE INACCURATE; THEIR FORMAT DOES NOT WORK WITH OUR RATES. For an estimate of the rate for any stay, potential guests can easily calculate the Lodge rate and see if it is within their budget by referring to details within this listing or at our own website page titled "Rates". Or, please call us for a quote -- a live human person and owner of the rental will speak with you -- not the flawed standardized form from this site that fails to share all your details. Some sites simply do not allow an "opt out".
In providing accurate, quotable rates, this site fails. It is easy to calculate your rates using the information below. Please keep in mind that children are people. Remember that you can call anytime or email us through our own site which will hold your email address private and secure. Our rates have remained unchanged for more than two years--no increases in property tax or insurances. We are aware of the economy, and we are aware of the value of our vacation rental. We know quite well our costs; we do not negotiate. Unlike most other area businesses, our rates do not soar for festivals, bike week, birding week, Walleye Festival, Christmas in July or December, or any other event or national holiday. The system for providing quotes does not take into consideration the number of people, animals, week nights and week ends. Any quote you see from VRBO is inaccurate. You must call at your convenience to talk with us about making the Lighthouse Lodge your vacation rental.

2015 RATES—

MINIMUM TWO NIGHT STAYS. (Sunday through Thursday).
Up to 6 people; $240 nightly (minimum); $40 per person/per night.
Each additional person — $40 per person, per night.

MINIMUM WEEKEND STAYS. (Friday, Saturday).
Up to 6 people; $300 nightly (minimum); $50 per person/per night.
Each additional person — $50 per person, per night.

UPSTAIRS EFFICIENCY -- MINIMUM TWO NIGHT STAYS.
Up to 4 people — $120 per night (minimum).

Non-refundable 50% Deposit holds Lodge for your rental. Personal checks, Certified Banker's checks, and cash are accepted. Local bed tax is included in rate. Please call at your convenience to discuss any questions you may have.

Dogs may be considered, and a phone call is necessary to talk with Jeff about your pet (or pets). Having boarded only once our Springer Spaniel, the late "Boner" once in the mid-90's at $25 per night, we understand that value and importance of traveling with one's pet. After speaking with you about your pet, Jeff may decide to invite you to bring your dog at a cost of $20 per dog, per night.

At the Lighthouse Lodge, we welcome and accommodate small groups, multi-family groups, and very large groups. Antique collectors, birders, shooters for the national matches, artists, fisherman, hunters, and families enjoy the décor of this one of a kind place. Reunions, parties (bachelor and bachelorette), business gatherings, Girl Scout troops, and church groups are very satisfied with the Lodge's space and atmosphere. The Lighthouse Lodge is at the heart of local attractions and parks-- Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Johnson's Island, Lakeside, East Harbor and Port Clinton are all nearby.

We have an upstairs studio/efficiency off our sign studio that is available separately or in addition to Lodge rental.

Please note: Google and GPS devices misdirect guests. We are located at 6604 E. Bayshore, CR 135 & 137, corner of Bayshore and Church Roads.

You will never be asked by Jeff, Lisa, or the Lighthouse Lodge to download any app. Our booking confirmation form is a document within this site and could be downloaded. It may be wiser to download it from our own website. (Hope to learn how to get it there soon. Today is 4.16.2015.) Never will we ever ask you to download an app.

Do you truly feel you can pay to have confidence, vacation protection, avoid their booking fee, or buy an experienced property owner? We have been here since 1995 with our sign business and have been active in the community with our Lighthouse Lodge since 2002. You need not pay to know that the Lighthouse Lodge has never had any problems with guests since 2006. (Well, except that bachelor party that forgot to have a designated person to get them to the last ferry at Put-in-Bay. Everyone was angry because they had to spend the night milling around outdoors at the dock PIB, and they all left forgetting to pay us or speak with us. But, we copy every group representative’s driver’s license and photograph license plates. It was easy for the local police and highway patrol to escort the groom and bachelors back here to pay us and proffer a proper goodbye. One thought the other thought that he paid......) We trust you and expect no damage deposit. Those who broke things have explained to us; we understand things happen. In the rental agreement, the group representative takes responsibility for serious damages.

We hope you understand that we are offering you a great vacation home. While we accept full responsibility for our vacation rental, we are not responsible for the other products presented to you at our listing on this site.

(ps--Bed tax is 3%--has been since instituted in Ottawa County. Some guests are frustrated when they learn this because they have been charged anywhere from 6% to 7.25% other summers at other places. There is no state tax on a vacation rental like ours. Ohio does tax sleeping accommodations with five or more sleeping rooms for less than 30 days.)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: I am a lifelong professional commercial artist and have used my abilities as a designer to create a Lodge that offers a unique lodging experience. I remain a paper/pencil guy. I believe in handshakes and phone conversations. I look forward to talking with potential guests and working with you to establish the Lighthouse Lodge as your vacation rental. The Lighthouse Lodge is a 'live' project, changing and growing with antiques and art that are added regularly. I wanted to create the most unusual and comfortable place for groups to gather, and I know that the Lighthouse Lodge is exactly that. If you want to know more about me, you can find me at LinkedIn--Jeff Bumbera. (Lisa was a high school English teacher for almost 20 years. She does not correct anyone's writing or speech, and she too often fails to proofread. She fully expects people to read this listing, view our website and virtual tour--then ask questions. A request for "how many people will our hot tub hold" -- is a really bad question. Lisa wants your visit to be great, so please ask questions while you here. Lisa is cooperative, flexible, and willing to help resolve a problem. (If you need a bit of....something, please ask. Please do not go to the store for something we may have. If you want to use your iPhone and quick scroll through details, we may not be the place for you.) We are vacation property owners who are HERE to help make your stay pleasant and easy.

Why the Owner Chose Marblehead:
The Lighthouse Lodge is located where access to all the things I have enjoyed and loved about Ottawa County and my home from childhood to today are easily accessible. We have wifi so when you return to the Lodge from your excursions, you will have wifi to use to share your photos of your day. Some people love their hometown. Here, I feel the variety in Ottawa County makes it so attractive, and it is easy to enjoy everything when the Lodge is your vacation home.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The Lodge is spacious and comfortable -- an interesting place to relax, meet, share your experiences at any of the attractions or on the shores of Lake Erie. Any visit to the area parks and preserves will lighten your spirit. Again, our rates include sales tax and remain stable throughout the year, and there are never any hidden fees. We never share your email address. Save your privacy. You may contact us through our website. Check the calendar here, visit our website, view our virtual tour, and call us.
