Overview

About the property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2). During the Summer we can only rent weekly

We have a very lovely, one bedroom lakefront house that is available to rent in Vermilion, Ohio. The interior is all knotty pine with a fireplace, very large master bedroom, large sun porch, kitchen, living room /dining room and bath. It is charming, cozy and immaculate. Cozy in the winter and lovely in the summer.

The large, private backyard abuts Lake Erie, and provides you with a break-front at the lake that is perfect for fishing, swimming or just “sitting” by the water. There is a large park for the kids a short walk/bike ride down the street, and a large, private backyard with, swings and benches to watch the truly great sunsets and sunrises over Lake Erie. Take a snooze on the sun porch and catch the afternoon trade winds, or open the windows at night and catch the wind and sound of the waves.

Conveniently located, it is 20 minutes from Cedar Point and the many Sandusky water parks (Kalahari, Great Wolf Lodge, Castaway Bay), 30 minutes to the ferry for the Lake Erie Islands and wineries, 20 minutes to historic Milan/Norwalk Ohio (home of Thomas Edison), and 30 minutes to Cleveland’s Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, the Science Museum, Cleveland Indians, Browns, and Cavaliers, and the world famous Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland Orchestra, and Art and History museums. There is fine shopping, restaurants, boat rentals and the quaint City of Vermilion (complete with ice cream Shoppe, naval museum, wonderful beaches and a 5 star French restaurant on the water) to visit.

So spend a day at Cedar Point, and come home to the quiet of the Lake for dinner and an evening of relaxing at the water. Go fishing in the morning, and then head into Milan in the afternoon for a taste of history. Head off for a day at the water parks and come home to a home cooked meal on the grill. Spend a day at the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame and visit the many sites of Cleveland (USS Mather, the USS Cod submarine, the many nightclubs in the Flats by the Cuyahoga River, the Science Museum, or catch an Indians game) (Cleveland really is a great city) and come home to a night of catching fireflies in the backyard, or a trip into Vermilion for ice cream or just a peaceful sunset at the water. The combinations and possibilities are endless.

Our house offers you days of quiet by the water with the fun and excitement of day trips to the many sites in Vermilion, Sandusky, Huron, Milan, Norwalk, and Cleveland, as well as the Lake Erie Islands. You will have a vacation to remember for always.

FAMILY GATHERINGS

Also available - a large THREE bedroom mirror image house that is located next door (It is a duplex) which is great for family gatherings/reunions. If you would like to rent both units the price is $1700. For the THREE bedroom side THERE IS A LARGE MASTER BEDROOM (ORIGINALLY A SUNROOM) PLUS 2 SMALLER BEDROOMS. FOR SPECIFIC INFORMATION go to the VRBO separate listing #261126 for specific information and pictures. Both sides are both beautiful - mirror images - but for the bedrooms. (Each side has its own yard area - it is a large yard). It is a great deal for a family vacation to remember always.

Our house is also about 40 minutes from the Cleveland Clinic - and is also a perfect peaceful place for family members or for the patient' s peaceful recuperation.

THIS CALENDAR ONLY APPLIES TO THE ONE BEDROOM UNIT. Please go to VRBO listing #162266 for information and pictures for the THREE bedroom home and its calendar.

About Donald Fenner

WE LOVE OUR HOUSE AND OUR SUMMER RENTERS.

Donald Fenner purchased this house in 2001

Why Donald Fenner chose Ohio

We purchased our lakefront HOME and gutted large parts of the home, replaced kitchens and baths as well as many of the knotty pine walls. Because it is a duplex (see 3 bedroom listing 1662266), we specifically bought our home on the lake to accommodate our children and their families, and thought that it would be a great vacation rental until we 'retired'. Our one bedroom side provides a wonderful cozy getaway opportunity in a breathtaking lakefront location, while being close to Cleveland, the Cleveland Clinic, the islands, Cedar Point, and all of the waterfront points of interest. Our home is lovely, cozy, and immaculate. The views are magnificent, and the lakefront wonderful.

What makes this house unique

A PEACEFUL, BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAN RETREAT WITH A PRISTINE WHITE SAND BEACH A SHORT WALK DOWN THE STREET - WITH A NEIGHBORHOOD PARK.

Also, our home is a duplex - so there is a mirror image house next door with three bedrooms. This arrangement has proved a wonderful option for family gatherings - particularly for two separate families - or grandparents/parent vacations. You get the privacy and peace of a separate home as well as the 'family' right next door. For pictures and information go to VRBO listing #261126, or http://katesvacationhomes.net

Great Get-a-way!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home. The view is incredible, the home very accommodating and the owners even added extras, like muffins, soaps, shampoo and conditioner along with plenty of nice towels. It was just a long weekend for us but this home would be wonderful for longer stays as well. Our visit went much too quickly!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't have asked for more with our location! Every minute sitting outside, enjoying our beloved Lake Erie was fantastic! Our only disappointment in the cottage was the bedroom mattress. Other than that, we couldn't have asked for more.

Owner's Response: We had another visitor within a couple of weeks of Larry's comment tell me that they rolled together to the center of the mattress. We were surprised because it was a very good mattress and only a couple of years old. So we bought the new expensive mattress and when we went to install it we found that the actual bed frame had been broken - which caused the box spring to go. This caused the mattress to sag in the middle. All is fixed now. And we are one mattress up. kate

Kick Back & Relax

  • 5 of 5

We and our two small dogs really enjoyed our stay at this lakefront home right on the bluffs of Lake Erie. It was clean, comfortable, well maintained, and offered the comforts of home plus a nice patio with gas grill where we sat and relaxed while enjoying the cool breezes coming off of the lake underneath the shade of an old oak tree. The neighbors were very friendly and let us take some sunset pictures from their vantage point. Kate and Donald, the owners, take pride in their home and we had the pleasure to meet them and thank them in person for such a wonderful stay. We look forward to coming back here again and would highly recommend this to others.

shady lakefront cottage

  • 4 of 5

Me, wife & dog spent a week here. its close to everything. Lake Erie is in the backyard albeit down the bluff, there are stairs but my balance problem percluded me from going down to the breakwall. I fished a couple beaches literally minutes away. the back yard has a nice lake view with plenty of chairs some with cushions and Adirondacks..........and shade for relief in hot weather. sit back & watch the world, er, boats go by. a glass or 2 of wine, life is good. Kate is a gracious host .

Car: recommended

Lakefront - on the shores of Lake Erie. Some days we have a sandy beach, and some days we have rocks. We cannot promise what we will have - it is the luck of the weather and the water pattern.

THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL AND EMPTY BEACH DOWN THE STREET - A SHORT WALK - THAT HAS A FISHING BREAK WALL AND WHITE SAND THAT GOES OUT FOR QUITE A DISTANCE AT A VERY SHALLOW LEVEL. IT IS WONDERFUL. IT IS ALSO ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD PARK WITH SWINGS, AND BASKET BALL COURTS, TENNIS COURTS, A PICNIC AREA, AND BASEBALL DIAMOND. WE HAVE A SIMPLY GREAT LOCATION.
