    "We had 11 in our family, Six adults and five children. We had a wonderful week at the Lake House at Cedar Point. The house and grounds were well furnished with all the necessities. The only things we needed to bring were beach towels and our own personal items. We were minutes from Cedar Point and we enjoyed the sunsets on Sandusky Bay and playing in the waves on Lake Erie."
