Built in 1912 the Craftsman on Derby is warm and welcoming. There are only a few true Craftsman style home built in the area and we have been lucky enough to maintain the original look and feel of one of the most unique architectural times in history.
This original open concept home with built in kitchen cupboards, claw-foot tub, large covered porch, exposed natural stone fireplace...You have to experience it to fully appreciate it. The Craftsman has a way of making the world slow down and return you to a simpler time, when relaxing with a beverage on the porch was a well-earned reward.
The Craftsman on Derby has 2 Queen Bedrooms, a large dining room which comfortably seats 8, kitchen and living room on the main floor. Upstairs is the loft; perfect for kids with a TV/play area, sleeping accommodations for 4 (plus a toddler). Outside the Craftsman offers a large covered porch, BBQ, a fire pit with 4 Adirondack chairs and a yard ideal for games and play.
Walking distance from a great park for the kids, steps from Queen's Circle, Tim Horton's, South Coast Restaurant, an Old School Bakery you won't want to miss (only open on the weekends from 2-6 pm for Cake and Coffee). 10 minute walk to the most beautiful beach on all of Lake Erie. On that walk you'll pass ice cream parlous, drinking holes & restaurants encouraging you to wander the unique streets of Crystal Beach and take it all in.
We recommend parking your car. Bikes are the best form of transportation so that you can experience the community of Crystal Beach and Ridgeway. If this is of interest to you, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your stay. We also have a wonderfully convenient bike carrier you can borrow for beach belongings/groceries.
