  • Fabulous Home/Beautiful Setting

    "This condo could not have been any more perfect than what it was for my family of 7 to have a weekend getaway while attending my wedding at the Marblehead Lighthouse. It easily could have accommodated more people if necessary. The condo was in perfect condition and very clean. The owner responded quickly with any questions we had and was more than helpful in making our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. It is located close to many sightseeing activities and close to just about anything you might need. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a large place to stay in the Marblehead area."

    "This place was amazing! I brought 12 teenagers and 3 adults with me for a long weekend and wish we could have stayed longer! Everything was perfect! The manager was very friendly and called to make sure everything was in working order and even told us to turn up the heat if we were cold! My adults and teens were so impressed! I have our entire church congregation wanting to book this place as well as myself! AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!! Thanks Again!"

  • Our family had a great time at this property.

    "I was looking for a place we could all stay within close proximity of each other since everyone was coming in from out of town. This property fit all of our needs. The beach was perfect for the kids to play on while we all relaxed and enjoyed each other. There are so many things to do in this area - we did the Wild Animal Safari, Monsoon Lagoon, Cedar Point, the lighthouse and there are plenty more things to do. Jeremy, the owner, was super quick answer our questions and was very accommodating. Thanks for a great time!"

  • Cocozella Family-Salem,MA

    "We just returned from our family vacation at Darin and Jackie's lakefront cottage. What a great week we had!! The owners were both personable and friendly. Within minutes of our arrival, they had invited my husband,myself and our teenage boys out on their beautiful boat for a ride!! What an added treat that was for us all!! The cottage had everything we could have needed for the week, with lots of restaurants and grocery stores nearby. The lakefront location of the cottage was both peaceful and relaxing. Even our dog enjoyed it!! We were only about 25 min. from Cedar Point, which was great for us!! There are also lots of other things to see and do in and around Lake Erie. I would recommend it to anyone heading to the Ohio/Lake Erie area!! Thanks again for a great time!!"
