  • Best Rental Experience Ever!!!

    "We recently rented this wonderful house for a family get-together. It was truly the best rental experience that we have ever had. The house is a very relaxing, quiet and comfortable home. Wendy was easy to work with and truly goes the extra mile to make sure the house is very clean and well stocked with supplies. The kitchen was fully stocked with quality glassware, dishes and pots and pans. I had the best sleep I have ever had for being away from home because the house was so quiet and the beds were so comfortable. We are looking forwarding to renting this house again for our next family get-together. This house truly deserves the five star rating that reviewers have given it."

  • Summer Vacation

    "Thanks again for allowing us to stay at your condo in Breckenridge. We had a great stay and enjoyed how close it was to the pools and the downtown. We liked the kitchen as it allowed us to have at least two meals in the condo and only eat "out" once per day. We would definitely stay there again if the opportunity presents itself."

Lake Erie Area Travel Tips

Favorite Seasons to Visit Lake Erie Vacation Rentals

For families and people who want to enjoy water sports, the summer months are the best time of year to visit. From May through September, the lake experiences warm summer temperatures which make it ideal time of year for swimming, boating, waterskiing and sailing. During school summer vacation periods, the lakeshore can get very busy as families choose to spend their summer vacations on the lake. The busiest season is typically June and July. For those who want to enjoy the quiet serenity of Lake Erie, it is recommended that you rather travel in the spring season which is during April and May or the fall season which is September and October. During the winter months, the lake is transformed into a winter wonderland. Areas of the lake frequently freeze over and the shoreline is blanketed in thick snow. This season is ideal for those who enjoy ice fishing, snowmobiling or cross country skiing.

Things to Do at Lake Erie Cottages

Lake Erie is a destination where you can be as busy or as relaxed as you like. There are many people who visit Lake Erie to simply soak up the beautiful views and perhaps enjoy some relaxed fishing. There are many areas where there are nature trails that can be enjoyed. Birdwatching is one of the favorite pastimes in the area. The lake offers superb fishing and you can fish from the lakeshore or head out in a boat to deeper waters. It is the one activity that is available year-round.

Family Fun Times at Lake Erie Cabins

Lake Erie is a superb family vacation destination. Many of the vacation homes are located on the lakeshore, providing easy access to the water and a wide variety of water sports. The kids can spend the days fishing and paddling in the shallows while parents enjoy some relaxation time on the deck. If you have a boat, many of the homes have private moorings where you can tie your boat up so you don't need to launch and recover it every day. Picnic areas are great places to enjoy some fun games with other families. During the summer season, there are frequently festivals and events that provide further fun and entertainment for the family. Lake Erie is also a destination where couples can go to enjoy a romantic getaway or some quiet relaxation. Many homes have stunning views out over the lake. If you are staying on the eastern shoreline, you can enjoy spectacular sunsets at the end of every day.

Getting to Lake Erie

Lake Erie is the southernmost of the Great Lakes. Its shoreline includes the states of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan in the United States as well as the north shore which is in Ontario, Canada. The three major cities on Lake Erie are Buffalo in New York, Cleveland in Ohio, and Detroit Michigan. Detroit has the largest and busiest airport and is the main access point for the western shore. Detroit also provides easy access to the Canadian side of the lake through the neighboring city of Windsor. If traveling by road, there is a good network of roads along the lakeshore, providing easy access to vacation homes on Lake Eerie. If staying on the northeastern shoreline of Lake Erie, you may consider flying into Toronto and then getting a domestic connection on to the town of London. For travelers from the United States, the best access point on the northeastern side is the city of Buffalo, located near Niagara Falls. Cleveland Airport provides good access to Lake Erie's southern shoreline.
