About Sheryl Martin

Bob and Sheryl are your Hosts at The Deck House and Suite Marie's Lake Erie Retreat. Their love of people and willingness to make your stay a positive one are one of the many traits this couple has to offer. Their philosophy is that they want to offer accomodations that they themselves would enjoy at an affordable price.

Sheryl Martin purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Sheryl Martin chose Port Clinton

The Northcoast of Ohio was unknown to Sheryl until 2000 when she came and fell in love with the sparkling waters of Lake Erie and all the water related activities and history this area has to offer. Sheryl then met Bob in 2006 and fell in love with him and married him in 2007 at Historic Lyme Village in an 1800's Log Chapel.

What makes this apartment unique

Nice clean property to come home to after enjoying the beauty and attractions of the area. Centrally located just off of Route 2 on the east side of Port Clinton. Close to Lake Erie, public beaches/parks, gas stations, grocery stores and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send along this thank you for helping create a very wonderful and memorable family reunion!

The space was cozy, comfortable, clean and spacious enough for the entire group to feel comfortable.

We would recommend your place to anyone and certainly would rent from you again!!

Good luck in all you do.

The place was very clean and well stocked.

Everything we expected it to be. Roomy and comfortable with plenty of things to do near by for days you dont head to the islands. Walking about 30 minutes will get you to jet express and plenty of food and drinks in between.

nice place.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time the weather was great. Would recommend updating the bathroom a bit. The hot and cold water was different and the TV's could be updated. The fridge froze some of our stuff that was in the back. The bedroom with the full size and twin in it, the full size needs a new mattress you end up in the middle. Other than that everyone was comfortable.

Very nice place with everything we needed. Sheryl, the owner, was helpful and responded immediately

  • 4 of 5

The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels. We had 9 people and were concerned about only one shower but it really worked out fine. Never ran out of hot water!!

The one and only reason I have 4 stars instead of five stars is just because it lacked any outdoor space for kids to play. No yard. Just the parking lot. We were not there all that much so it wasn't a huge deal. everything else was great.

Owner's Response: So glad you were comfortable as that is our goal as a nice, clean, comfortable place to stay. I hope you checked out the lovely park with newer playground equipment for the kids and beach we talked about on the phone that is in close proximity to the property. There is so much to do in the area from Cedar Point to African Safari and the islands. The North Coast of Ohio is truly Vacationland.

Great for our trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Suite Marie was great. We had a group of 7 guys in town for a soccer tournament, and their was more than adequate space for us. Having 7 large beds for this price point is next to impossible to find. Our tournament was over on Put-in-Bay (about 12 minutes to the ferry), so we didn't really spend any time in the surrounding area in Port Clinton. Check in process and communication was great throughout! Will stay again if we play next year.

Loved the house. When I return I will most definitely contact Sheryl again. She was amazing dealing with all my questions. And we loved the house and the location of the house. Just a walk across the street to the river. All the fishing you can handle. A plus there is stores, the beach and a playground close by.

Owner's Response: So glad you liked Suite Marie's Lake Erie Retreat. Yes it is centrally located to enjoy all the area has to offer from Put-In-Bay island, Camp Perry Rifle Matches, World Class Walleye and Perch fishing and Bird Watching to Cedar Point and Water Parks. There is more to do than most people have time for. So yes, come back again and enjoy all the south shore of Lake Erie has to offer! Bob and Sheryl
