About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Any season of the year, ever-changing Lake Erie provides the entertainment while your make memories in this charming cottage.

Because we love spending time here, we have completely remodeled this historic cottage adding all the comforts of home. Past guests tell us that the clean, comfortable house and proximity of the lake exceed their expectations. The panoramic views of Lake Erie from the kitchen, living room and dining room are amazing. Upstairs are 3 private bedrooms with original hardwood floors and an updated full bathroom.

The lakefront deck and large yard invite guests outside and a fire ring is located at the water's edge. Every season brings different birds including bald eagles, purple martins, cranes and ducks. You can fish or swim from the property using large stepping stones or a set of stairs leading into the water. Meticulously maintained and cleaned by the owners, the house is nicely furnished with special attention to bedding, linens, bath and kitchen so you feel right at home. We rent to other home owners who are non-smokers over 25 years old and who agree to respect the home as if it was their own. We want others to enjoy Lake Erie when we cannot be here.

Located on a private lane with more barefoot vacationers than cars. Sandy beaches are everywhere, including a state nature preserve beach within walking distance and a mile-long public sandy beach 2 miles away. Explore many other nearby Lake Erie beaches using the State of Ohio guide to beaches. Budget Travel rated Huron, Ohio one of America's Coolest Small Towns in 2015. Conveniently located one hour from Cleveland and 20 minutes from Cedar Point and Marblehead. Call us at 614-837-0438 for our best rates and for help planing your vacation. If we are full, we recommend vrbo 26376 or 1126421.

About Karen

The owners met here in Hartley Beach and have been married ever since. Now living in Columbus with jobs that keep us much too far from Lake Erie, we love spending our free time here.

Karen purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Karen chose Ohio

We chose to buy this cottage because of our family and great neighbors who live on this private lane of a dozen houses.

What makes this cottage unique

It is truly special to find the friendly vacation atmosphere that this neighborhood has. Lake Erie is a powerful attraction that you have to experience to understand. Year round, this is our idea of a get away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

As soon as we stepped in, a big smile came over my mother's face. She was visiting from Saudi Arabia and I wanted to show her the relaxing side of the USA. This house is very relaxing and HOMEY, it was way more than I expected. My mother wanted to stay longer and we will be back.

VRBO Bear catching some sun at this great lakeside location!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Aug 27, 2003

This Lake Erie cottage is in a super location for anyone who is vacationing in northern Ohio. The cottage sits peacefully on the shore of Lake Erie and is located just off of Highway 6. It is just a few miles from Cedar Point, home to the biggest collection of super coasters in the USA! If roller coasters are not your thing, then don't worry, you have Lake Erie right in your own backyard. If you are into Summer fun, just rent a boat or jet ski and hit the water for some cool fun. This vacation cottage has plenty of room for a little bear and his travelling buddies. All three of us had a bedroom of our own and there was even an extra bed in the loft. We had a full kitchen to cook up a meal for a hungry bear, and a dining room that looked out over the lake. What a beautiful view!!! At night we enjoyed the sound of the waves hitting against the shore as well as "kicking back" in front of the TV and watching a movie. The comfortable living room had a fireplace and was equipped with a television and DVD-VCR player. Our hosts made us feel right at home. They were there to greet us when we arrived and even brought us fresh peaches (which a bear really loves) and several ears of corn, fresh out of the garden. We've never gotten that kind of service from the Holiday Inn. So whether you want a quiet relaxing place to escape to, or a fun filled adventure, it's all right here on Ohio's north coast. You can fish the week away, play golf, boat, ski, or head down the highway to Cleveland and take in an Indians baseball game, or visit my favorite, the "Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame." It is all conveniently located near Huron, Ohio and this "Vacationland" cottage. Signed, VRBO Bear

Lovely and relaxing; wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay--waking up each day to a phenomenal panoramic view of the lake. Especially enjoyed watching the eagles coming and going. The kitchen was so well equipped and the house so comfortable that we immediately felt right at home.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property and its location are beautiful. The neighborhood is lovely, each yard is well groomed and filled with bright flower borders. Karen's Lakefront cottage has a well appointed kitchen, dining room wrapped with windows, and an expansive deck with Amazing Views! George and Carol who are up the road are helpful and kind, offering assistance if needed. We enjoyed an afternoon walk up the lighthouse path, and visited the Old Woman's Nature Trail. Huron is a wonderful destination for a week-end get away. A family would be lucky to secure a reservation at this destination.

Perfect! We will definitely be coming back.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We only stayed two nights, just to get away for a couple days. As soon as we got there we immediately knew we wanted to stay longer. The setting was gorgeous. Every morning, while eating breakfast, 2 bald eagles would land on the tree next us and stay most of the day. It was beautiful. Our 3 year old had a blast as well, he renamed it adventure island and he wanted to stay longer as well. The property owners were more than accommodating and have an absolutely beautiful property. We will be coming back.

We loved our stay in this immaculate home. It was very clean and simple and had everything needed for a long weekend stay. Karen Rossi was very accommodating and we were thrilled with the experience. We plan on renting again in the future.

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We can't express strongly enough how impressed we were with every aspect of our experience. We've rented vacation cottages, condos, and homes a number of times but Karen and Mark's personal touches on their cottage not only make this place truly special but elevate it above the rest. It was immaculate and the location is outstanding with wonderful views and easy access to the best Lake Erie has to offer. We can't wait to go back.
