CANCELLATION!!! Week of AUG. 11-18 '17 $3500 --- CALL MARLA to BOOK! 734-678-2617

Golden Gate Cottage sits right on Lake Erie just a few feet from the water, with a view of the water from every room in the house. It is surrounded by a beautiful lawn and grounds with plenty of privacy and its own sandy beach.

Especially in the summer Golden Gate is great for families with our beach right next to the house, the playground across the street, the hot tub on the patio and the pool table in the garage! But, off-season---it it a fabulous place for 'Girlfriend Getaways'! I have put luxury linens on the beds, soft, wonderful towels and there are three king bedrooms, one queen and one double and a pullout in the living area.

We take great pride in keeping Golden Gate immaculately clean and in good repair. We are not an inpersonal management company but are very hands-on owners who want your stay with us to be full of blessings. Golden Gate is quaintly furnished with antiques, leather furniture and my own special collections. At the front of the house is a large patio with furniture facing the lake. Inside, a sunroom across the front of the house gives spectacular views,it has a large dining table in it so you can enjoy the lake whatever the weather is,whenever you eat. We like the kitchen to be fully equipped for any occasion and enjoy gazing at the water as we cook!

We are continually updating and adding to Golden Gate. This past year we added a second floor lakefront balcony and some new windows to enhance Golden Gate's fabulous view. This year we have just completed a new kitchen!! We have future plans for Golden Gate, but we also like to keep the essence of it the same---so that if you come back year after year, it feels familiar and comfortable. Like 'Grandma's house' (on the lake)! It is our privilege to own this cottage and share it with you!

Many guests have spent hours on the beach during the day and then enjoyed a bonfire at night. Golden Gate is the kind of place that you can spend your whole vacation in just relaxing and 'vegging out' as we do or you can easily find fun and exciting things to do within a 30 min. drive. Cedar Point amusement park, the ferries to Put-in-Bay and Kelley's island, Lakeside---Lake Erie's Chautauqua and the Marblehead lighthouse are close by.

For those of you into nature and birding, our area was part of the 'Great Black Swamp' and we are at the crossroads of two major migratory paths. The variety of birds and waterfowl is wonderful to see! Magee Marsh with it's nature programs and boardwalks etc. through the marshes is close by. We enjoy putting you in touch with what's available in our area and helping you have the best possible time at Golden Gate!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am semi-retired, and my husband and I love to spend time on Lake Erie in the summer with our family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Oak Harbor, OH, USA:
I fell in love with Golden Gate Cottage the first time I saw it! It is in my mind, a 'Grandma' cottage. Sweet bungalow style, wood floors, very cottagey, and the views of Lake Erie are awesome! We love this location, because it is quiet, lots of birds, and yet it is close to the Lake Erie islands, Port Clinton and Lakeside, and Cedar Point!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hanging out by the lake on the patio; reading and cooking!
