Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Treat yourself to this modern year round lake house with all the comforts of home -- maybe even more! Just steps from a private Lake Erie beach, we are the second house from the lake, on a quiet road -- closer to the lake than some lakefront homes. Located in North East, PA, we are in the heart of Lake Erie Wine Country and Steelhead Alley. Adults love our decor, furnishings and generously supplied house. Children are delighted here.

We are 18 miles east of downtown Erie in North East, PA. You'll notice a slower pace of life and a small town atmosphere including:

-- miles of Lake Erie coast, wineries, farm stands, vineyards

-- private Woodmere Beach just one house away

-- 11 wineries within 8 miles, open year round

-- quaint town with shops, spas, restaurants, grocery and drug stores just 3 miles

-- the iconic Freeport Restaurant just 1.25 miles

-- world-class fishing: steelhead, bass, walleye, perch, lake trout.

Like us on Facebook - "Clement's Lake Erie Cottages" for latest offers, events and recommendations for things to do. Please check my Facebook page BEFORE you reserve for latest offers and savings suggestions or call me directly at 814-566-4722.


Summer is a popular time for families who come to enjoy Lake Erie beaches and local attractions such as Waldameer Amusement Park & Water World, Presque Isle State Park, Scallywags Pirate Ship, Splash Lagoon Water Park, Peek n Peak Adventure Course and Zip Lines, and the Erie Zoo. See more recommendations at the bottom of this listing.


We are in the heart of Lake Erie Wine Country where wineries are open year round. Bella Day Spa is 3 miles away where you can reserve the party room and bring food and beverages for your ladies to meet up between spa appointments. Ask me about private wine glass painting classes (in-home), spa treatments (in-home) and for other ideas for your weekend.


Fishermen and guided fishing tours are welcomed. Fishing here is fantastic nearly all year. Late fall and winter fishing for steelhead is world class and we are right between 16 Mile Creek (1.25 miles) & 20 Mile Creeks (1.75 miles), but also close enough to Walnut Creek (27 miles) and Elk Creek (34 miles) -- you can drive to where the fish are hitting. Bring your boat and launch from the North East Marina, 1.4 miles. My brothers are part of a competitive fishing team here. Ask me for Lake Erie fishing charter recommendations or guide recommendations for stream fishing.


Larger groups please see our other listing #336468. We have two vacation rentals on the same street -- just 3 homes apart. Rent BOTH homes to accommodate larger groups. Wonderful lodging for wedding guests. If my calendars are booked for the dates you need, ask me for other recommendations. I am happy to help.


Main Floor: living area, kitchen, eating area, 3 bedrooms (Q, F, 2T) and bathroom with shower/tub unit. We also provide a Queen air mattress with electric blower for inflation.

The fully equipped kitchen includes stainless appliances, large Thermador refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, microwave, Keurig and carafe coffee makers, dishwasher, garbage disposal, blender, mixer, crockpot, cookware, dishes, utensils.

Second Floor Loft: Living area equipped with 42" plasma TV, Blue-ray Disc player, cable channels, comfy sectional sofa, board games and toys. We have lake views from the loft.

Other Features:

- completely renovated home

- professionally decorated

- central air conditioning - a must for hot summer nights

- central heat - warm and cozy in the winter; fully insulated home- not drafty like older cottages. Feel free to set the thermostat to your comfort level.

- ample city water (no well water or low supply)

- public sewer (no septic issues)

- full size washer and dryer are provided in the garage. Washer is 'winterized' from November through April, and cannot be used during those months.

- concrete driveway parking can accommodate up to 4 cars or a boat -- or a game of pick-up basketball - hoop provided in driveway


The home uniquely sits on 2 lots with large grassy areas for playing yard games. Kids love the tree swing. The backyard is private... only the yard and the creek about 15 feet down. We provide a metal fire pit in the backyard or you can enjoy a small camp fire at the beach. Driftwood from the beach is plentiful for a beach fire or the fire pit (no need to bring your own wood).


- very private, quiet, dead end road with only 12 homes

- no thru traffic

- very peaceful

- easy beach access

- family environment; not a party neighborhood

- loud parties not welcome here

- private beach for residents/guests only

- we are 1 house away from the beach entrance - closer to beach and easier access than some lakefront homes = great value!

-- our road runs nearly perpendicular to beach

-- easy walkable beach access (no bluff/cliff/staircase)

- easy access to the beach is unique for the area and important to consider for taking beach chairs, coolers and small watercraft to the beach

- natural Lake Erie shoreline with stones, sand, driftwood (please see photos here and on my other listing #336468). Beach shoes recommended.


Walk on the shore, look for beach glass and roast marshmallows at the beach as you take in beautiful sunsets. We head to the beach in the evenings with a cup of wine to view the sunset, a different show each evening. Some nights are cloudy with subtle color and some nights are brilliantly colorful. The kids happily play at the shoreline, in the creek, in the lake and warm-up to the campfire as they make s'mores. Treasures abound year round -- beach glass, beach stones, driftwood, and other ordinary objects weathered to 'treasure-status' by water and time. Kids find their imaginations here.


Launch your kayak or sailboard right from the beach, or your jet ski or larger boat from the Marina, 1.4 miles east. We launch our fishing boat from the North East Marina and then anchor it in front of our beach during the day so we can come and go. The marina also has short term space for boats parking or slips.


Bring your bikes. Kids can bike up and down our quiet street. Mature bicyclists can be more adventurous and take advantage of longer bike rides. Cycling tours and maps available at "Lake Country Bike" in North East.


Town of North East is 3 miles. Erie (State Street/Dobbin's Landing area) is 18 miles.

About Lynne Clement

I'm Lynne Clement, a work-from-home soccer/dance/baseball mom. I love managing our rental properties and being a marketing consultant and property manager for other vacation rental owners. I am originally from Erie, PA, a graduate of both Penn State Main and Xavier University (Cincinnati). I worked at Procter & Gamble for 10 years and lived all over the country for 20 years. When our kids became school-aged, we moved back to Erie where they could have a place to call home and have close relationships with extended family.

Lynne Clement purchased this house in 2005

Why Lynne Clement chose Great Lakes

As a child, my favorite memories were of visiting this special beach community. My dad's best friend owned this little slice of heaven where kids could be kids enjoying nature, and adults were always in a good mood as they relaxed, recharged and enjoyed good company in a peaceful place. The tug of good memories was so strong that eventually my parents bought the house next door AND years later, my husband and I bought the other next door home so that we could provide happy traditions and memories for our kids! I have been coming to this place for 40+ years!

What makes this house unique

I wanted my kids to grow up enjoying the same memories I had... swimming at the beach, combing the shore for beach glass, outdoor bbqs, gathering driftwood for bonfires and s'mores, catching minnows and crayfish in the creek behind our house, walking barefoot on a dirt roads to the beach, skipping stones, floating on rafts, painting beach stones and building teepees from fallen tree branches. As an adult, I appreciate getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and entertaining friends or family and their kids just like I remember from those days as a child. Creating memories... it's what we help you do!

Our yearly fishing

We had a great time as always, we caught lots of fish and found some beach glass even though the water was high. We are looking forward to coming back next year.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect little getaway for us and the kids to unplug and enjoy some time together and make memories to last throughout their lives! We hiked in the creek, watched beautiful sunsets on the lake every night, had campfires at the cottage and on the beach, played basketball, and painted rocks for the collection under the tree. The cottage is beautiful and well cared after. The neighborhood kitty (who we nicknamed Drifter - Drifty for short) was the first to greet us and visited each day. Well maintained dirt roads were like stepping back in time and were great for walks together. Presque Isle is close by and has beautiful sand beaches. We can't wait to visit again!

The property, although small, is nicely decorated and the loft provides extra space for the children

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. We had fires in the fire pit and the children really enjoyed the swing. The house is very nicely decorated and has ample dishes, glassware and cooking utensils. It's a very comfortable house. The neighborhood is quiet and we enjoyed walking the dog around and looking at the other cottages. The Windemere Beach was a little disappointing. Most of it is rocky. One day the water was very calm and we did manage to swim there. We visited several wineries and that was fun.
