This large property is absolutely on the lake! It is a one of a kind spacious luxury rental directly on the lake close to wineries.
At Lure of the Lake, we provide you with a quality lake house ON the lake so you can relax and be ON the water 24/7.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hello and welcome to Lake Erie in North East, PA. My name is Megan, and thank you for taking the time to read my bio. We are a locally owned and operated luxury vacation destination on the lake. Several generations of my family have lived along the shores of Lake Erie in North East, spanning several decades. I grew up in North East and have traveled extensively. I continue to reside in N.E. with my family. Lake Erie is a great hidden treasure in North East, and the surrounding areas. We cordially welcome you to come and stay with us to explore and experience our local treasures for yourself. We have been in the rental business for over 10 years in long term and luxury vacation rentals. Our goal is to provide a quality lake house and a relaxing vacation experience for you in all seasons and all occasions. Our cleaning staff is professional and meticulous. This home has wonderful appointments, is very comfortable, well organized and has a large open layout both indoors and outdoors. We have many unique property features and amenities that distinguish us from other rentals in the area. Excellent customer service and satisfaction along with continuous quality improvements are the primary focus of our operation. We listen to the feedback from our guests and strive to make continuous quality improvements that everyone will enjoy while staying with us. Last year we added a gazebo with a swing on the lake, which has been a huge hit with all generations! This year we added a beach bar to enhance our outdoor living and entertaining options. When you call or email, you will correspond with my very experienced and knowledgeable reservationist, Cathy Wonderling. We work closely together to assure you a delightful stay. Cathy lives 2 miles from this property and is easy to reach if you have questions, concerns or need suggestions about our local area. Hope you can join us on the lake where memories are made as we love to share it!

Why the Owner Chose North East, PA, USA:
There's something special about growing up on Lake Erie. Life revolves around the water and the lake. In summer, we live at the beach. As a teen, I was a lifeguard at Freeport. The fishing and our sunsets are world class. In fall, the water temperatures moderate the climate, producing perfect conditions for grape growing and our local wine industry. In winter, we snowmobile, ski, ice-fish, ice-skate and dream about summer days again. I bought this property because of its beauty and its size -- it's rare to find a one acre lakefront property with easy beach access. Need any recommendations? Ask me. I grew up here and have can tell you about the locals' best kept secrets.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is directly on Lake Erie and has it's own large private beach. The one acre-sized yard is huge by lake home standards. I can walk to the North East Marina along the beach or walk to the Mazza Winery. This lake house has many distinguishing features that set it apart from other rentals. The gazebo, beach bar, fireplace, one acre lot and large private beach are just the beginning. The lake is borders the front and the vineyards are behind the house. Its the best of everything here in steelhead alley and wine country. Lake Erie sunsets are beautiful and relaxing to watch from anywhere on the property. Eagles frequent the beach as well as other wildlife. I also enjoy stargazing and seeing the Canadian lights across the lake at night. From here, you are a short 26 miles from Canada. Care to swim the distance? I can tell you about our first local swimmer who has-- Ms. Halli Reid. She is a local legend and just so happens to have a park dedicated in her honor at Freeport Beach. Check it out when you are here.
