About the property

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

Last minute special; April 26-30; three nights for the price of 2.

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 with any questions. 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 Huron

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

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

And the winds blew and Blew and BLEW! But, it did not detract from our visit at all. My sister (from Denver) and I had a wonderful time reminiscing and catching up while watching the whitecaps crash against the shore. We watched some freighters out on the lake. There were bald eagles flying in spite of the wind - awesome! The cottage was spotless but did not in a way that made us feel like we had to "walk on egg shells". We never felt like we were in someone else's home. It just felt like home. The cottage had everything we could have possibly needed. In short, we Loved it! Thanks so much for sharing your slice of paradise Karen!

Beautiful little cottage right on the water. Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just wanted a weekend away from our busy lives. This was the most relaxing weekend. My 6 year old son loved all the board games available. He also enjoyed picking up the binoculars and watching the ducks and boats on the lake. The house is exceptionally clean and fully furnished. We would love to come back during warmer weather.

Beautiful cottage for a weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this cottage. The cottage offers beautiful views of Lake Erie from the kitchen and living room. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the appliances and utensils we needed. The beds were comfortable. We will check the availability of this cottage when we visit the area again.

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed for the second time for a relaxing trip over the Christmas holidays. The house is cozy and extremely clean, very well appointed. The owner is always very helpful and quick to respond. A great spot for a relaxing stay, close to everything, and a view that simply cannot be beat!

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.
