Marblehead cottage description

Looking for a quiet, peaceful and relaxing family vacation or, maybe a romantic getaway? Look no further. With beautiful old fashioned knotty pine walls, hardwood floors and a brick enclosed 23-foot sun-room facing the bay, from which to enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, this air conditioned cottage home is just what you have been looking for.
Located on beautiful Sandusky Bay (Lake Erie) in historic Marblehead, Ohio, this quaint waterfront cottage/home is located directly on the water, not down the street from the water. You can enjoy endless sunny days of swimming and sunbathing on your private beach, literally outside your front door.
Enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner outside on your private waterside patio. The gas grill and picnic table await you. Or stay inside and utilize the full kitchen, dining and living area. You might even want to dine at one of the many fine restaurants in the area.
Spend a day at Cedar Point, Castaway Bay, Kalahari Water Parks, Monsoon Lagoon, African Safari Wildlife Park, Put-n-Bay, Kelleys Island and more, just minutes from the cottage. Enjoy browsing the many craft and gift shops throughout historic downtown Marblehead. You can even watch Cedar Point fireworks every night, from your front door.
Have a boat, bring it along. A 25-foot dock/slip is available, just outside the cottage, for your convenience and pleasure. An easy access boat launch is just minutes from your cottage. Cruise over to Cedar Point, Kelly's Island, and Put-n-Bay. Walk on a sand bar in the middle of Sandusky Bay. Enjoy water skiing, parasailing, and tubing.
Love to fish? Set out on Lake Erie for a day of the best walleye fishing in the country not to mention the great perch and bass fishing. If you feel Lake Erie is too rough, you can always turn around and fish in the Bay. We are that close to the lake. Small-mouth and large-mouth bass are plentiful along the rocky shoreline and throughout the bay. Or, fish right outside your front door on your own private pier or right from your waterside patio. After your fishing outing, clean your fish on the fish-cleaning table provided outside the cabin, or have them professionally cleaned.
Just want to go for a boat ride? Boat rides, tours, and fishing excursions are available with pick-up and drop-off right from your front door.
Why spend the same amount of money or more money for a motel room or rooms when you can stay in a waterfront cottage/home. The cottage features a private beach right outside the cottage, fishing from the waterside patio or from the jetty right outside the cottage and a big shady waterside Maple tree to sit and enjoy the view and warm breezes. Safe and secure boat dockage is available right outside the cottage (additional charge) with trailer parking alongside. Fishing trips and boat tours available right from the cottage.
