About John Rader
We were born and raised in Findlay Ohio and have two children who live and work in the Port Clinton area along with our two grandchildren that love playing and swim at our cottage. My wife and I have sold real estate for thirtysix years and own the Re/max for Ottawa Co. We moved to Port Clinton 15 years ago and have had a great experience with all the opportunities and amenities the area has to offer.This is our personal home 8 months out of the year and in the summer we move to Lakeside where our grandchildren also enjoy.This is a wonderfull place to visit while vacationing in our area as it takes you back to the ways we lived in the 1800s.
John Rader purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why John Rader chose Port Clinton
We always wanted to own a house on the lake but we though we could never afford it and then a twist of fate gave us a chance to own our little piece of the lake through a real estate partnership that included converting an old hotel called char-nel shores into residential lots which we have since sold.Our house is all that is left from the original property.We have added a garage and 4 seasons -bedroom,new granite kitchen,2porches,shower,new walls and carpet.The furniture is not what you would expect to find in a rental as we have many amish pieces with upscale beds .new refrigerator,dishwasher,and new washer and dryer.
What makes this Cottage unique
Not only does our house have a sandy beach but we have great views of the beautifull sunsets. We are also just one mile from Kroger and Wal-Mart. We also have over 100 restraunts in the summer within a 10 mile area.You can see 4 Lake Erie island from back yard

Great family time!
The Sandy Beach Cottage allowed three generations to enjoy great family time together!
Wonderful time in a beautifully quaint beach front home with a fantastic view!
First time for my wife and I at the beach house and certainly won't be the last. Everything you could possibly need or want in the home is right there. Plus the 1812 restaurant right down the road as well as the grocery. Everything was perfect for us and we wish we could have stayed longer, but we will be back!

Thank you so much for your kind words. Hope to see you again. Sincerely John
Beautiful Lake Views
We loved staying at the cottage. Having the water right out the back door was awesome. The sunsets were amazing. John was very nice and accommodating and the cottage suited all of our needs. We hope to book again for next year.
Great Lake Erie location
Great for sunsets. Beautiful location with lots of activities and a beautiful sandy beach !
Very close to the water! Which made it great for the grandkids
Overall for the price it was a good house. Maybe it was just the time of the year but there where spiders evey where. The pictures shown are not exactly what you get when you get there. The house is older and could use a little work.
But being able to walk right onto a sandy beach within 50 feet of the back deck was awesome.
Overall we had a good stay. The weather was incredible. The fishing wasn't too bad either
Great place to enjoy Lake Erie
Our family really enjoyed our stay at Sandy Beach Cottage. The huge shade tree was a great spot for those who weren’t swimming. We truly loved the sandy beach. Thanks!
