Sunset Beach is a natural Great Lakes shoreline that changes with the weather. We have many beach stones, driftwood, sand and beach glass. Sorry, we do not have palm trees, coconuts or white sand. Sunset Beach is a great place to relax, celebrate all occasions, swim, walk the beach, fish, kayak, water sports, enjoy a camp fire, and treasure hunt for beach glass or other flotsam and jetsam.
Freeport Beach, the public beach next to us, does get sand replenishment and grooming. Little ones will enjoy the playground at Freeport Beach. Older kids and adults can enjoy the sand volleyball courts there. In the summer season, Freeport Beach offers a lifeguard.
Guests with limited mobility can enjoy the lake views from the home and decks. Two decks are partially shaded. The beach requires good mobility for access, as the surface is uneven with scattered driftwood, beach stones, etc. Access to the adjacent Freeport Beach requires crossing 16 Mile Creek which is normally ankle to calf deep at the mouth of the creek, but can be deeper with rain. Driving distance to Freeport Beach for those who want to bypass the creek is about half a mile. Walking distance to Freeport Beach is much closer.
- Lake Erie Wine Trail: We are located on the Lake Erie Wine Trail. 26 wineries make up the complete wine trail. Wineries are open YEAR ROUND and close only on major holidays. Along the wine trail we have many artisans, galleries, antique shops and restaurants. Winery Tours make for a great ladies getaway, classy bachelorette trip, or couples getaway.
Visit during a wine related event or festival, or choose a slower time such as winter or spring to get more personal attention and learning from the winemakers themselves. If you visit during a slower time, call ahead to book a special small group session with a winemaker for a look behind the scenes. A private winery tour would be a nice way to celebrate a special occasion. A special dinner or gathering at a winery is a nice idea for a rehearsal dinner, shower, engagement party.
- Our ladies groups also enjoy shopping, wine tasting, Bella Day Spa, Double DAB Horse Riding Trails, and Presque Isle Casino.
- World Class Fishing: Lake Erie area is known for world class fishing including walleye, perch, bass, lake trout, and steelhead. We can recommend Charters or discuss parking for your boat. 16 Mile Creek is about 40 feet from this house. 20 Mile is about 3-4 miles from this house. Steelhead season typically runs from October through March, but creeks can and do freeze over for the latter part of the season.
- Sunsets: Watching the sun set each night into the lake is a beautiful thing and a local tradition. You have a direct and open view of the sunset at lake level at this home. If you watch closely you may catch a green flash!
- Nearby: We have a nice variety of restaurants nearby, including the Freeport Restaurant & Pub, and Johnny B's,. The Cork & Noosa Restaurants are newer, upscale and just 2 miles away. A local pub with good food is Plummer's just a few miles east across the N.Y. border. Other local faves for coffee/lunch/hanging out is South Shore Café, & Boston Bean – a cool space with WiFi. Presque Isle Winery has a fun food menu to go along with wine tasting. South Shore cafe is open mid-June to mid-October. For 18-holes of golf, we recommend Green Meadows Golf Course (5 miles).
- Daytrips? We are a short drive to Chautauqua Lake, Bemus Point, Findley Lake, Peek-n-Peak Golf & Ski Resort - and new Mountaineering and Zipline Courses, Erie, Presque Isle State Park as well as Presque Isle Downs & Casino, Splash Lagoon Water Park, Waldameer Amusement Park, Malls (Millcreek, Galleria, Grove City).

About Megan Cunningham
Hello, I am Megan, a lifelong resident of North East, PA. I have grown up along the shores of Lake Erie and continue to reside in this area. My family has owned property on Sunset Beach for several generations over many decades. Thank you for taking the time to view my bio and my Sunset Beach House. Words alone cannot accurately describe the hidden beauty of this unique property. My family and I have many fond memories at this home. My goal is to provide a quality coastal home for other families or friends to enjoy. I am a local owner/operator with a committed focus on customer service and satisfaction. I am just a phone call or text away should you need anything during the course of your stay. A little bit about myself and my interests include: family, traveling, horses, hunting, fishing, swimming, kayaking, biking, gardening, growing pumpkins and Indian corn.
Megan Cunningham purchased this House in 1995
Why Megan Cunningham chose Erie County
This beach has special meaning and is a beach lovers niche. Lake Erie is a constant source of natural beauty as it ebbs and flows with the seasons, weather, fish and wildlife. The sunsets are a sight to behold here across the horizon line of the lake directly in front of the home. I have many fond family memories here and I trust you will also have fond memories here as well. This is a wonderful private neighborhood with easy beach access. I purchased this property because of the location on the beach and the incredible views. The panoramic views are a result from being located on beach point at lake level. When I am here, I feel the peaceful tranquility of the lake... through the beautiful sights of nature, sunsets, calming sounds of the waves, and cooling breezes. This is a wonderful spot for swimming, kayaking, beach combing, fishing and birdwatching. We have eagles and many other bird species to watch, along with deer that come to the lake to drink and swim. If you love true lake living you will indeed love this property. This property is like fine wine, it gets better with age. I have recently done extensive remodeling to both the interior and exterior to enhance all of the appointments of this luxury beach house. Location plus luxury make this a win-win beach house rental in all seasons.
What makes this House unique
Sunset viewing from our home is a daily activity. The sunsets are world class and panoramic. We eat all summer meals outside at our picnic table on the beach, weather permitting. We enjoy our locally grown produce because they taste better when you buy them freshly picked at the farm stand less than a mile away! We have many fresh farm markets to choose from. We like to sleep outdoors on the deck or beach. Life at this beach includes beach treasure hunting (there's more to find when the beach is private), swimming, sunbathing, and not having to pack a bag to go to the beach.

The location of the Lake House is great and the view is spectacular!
We had a wonderful time at 108 Sunset Beach Road in North East, PA. All the conveniences provided made for a stress free week. Loved having towels, laundry machines, modern conveniences. Neighbors were super friendly and helpful! Proximity to activities and fun spots was nice and yet we were able to be away from the hustle and bustle of a hotel. The microwave could be updated and the tv was a bit confusing. Some upgrades to the house would be good. It was decorated adorably and the view from the living room was amazing!! My family had a wonderful week! Thank you for sharing this little piece of heaven with us! Biggest safety concern:. Doors would not lock properly and could be opened while locked.
So glad you enjoyed your time with family, the spectacular views, beach combing and relaxing directly on the beach. The door has been addressed, so no worries. Hope you can make it back for another visit in the future. Thank you for sharing our slice of heaven on the lake!
Great place to stay!
Rented for girls weekend....wonderful time...coffee on deck overlooking lake each morning...beach close by....winery tours near...plus Erie shopping and casino not that far away. Cottage cozy,neat and clean.

Thank you for staying at Sunset Beach. The sunsets are spectacular and beyond words! You are welcome back anytime you are able to make it to North East!

The house was bigger than the pics let on.
There were 6 of us that stayed very comfortably in the house for the weekend. Cathy W., our agent was very responsive when I had a few questions, even gave us input on the town and where some restaurants were.
Thank you for your kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed the cottage and had a good time here in North East. I'm hoping you can return in the future with your family.
Girls winter weekend getaway!
We thoroughly enjoyed this darling cottage! We enjoyed several of the wineries and had some great dinners thanks to the wonderful suggestions given to us by Cathy! Johnny B's was our favorite! It was so nice sitting in the lovely living room watching the waves and spray from Lake Erie! What a great way to enjoy your morning coffee! Beds were comfy and everything you need is there! Just sit back and enjoy!
Thank you for this great review, Lorin! Great to see you and meet "the girls". We will happily welcome you back anytime!
Best of both worlds... this home is located on Sunset Beach and just a short walk to the public Freeport Beach & Halli Reid Park which has playground, lifeguard and snack shack available seasonally. Come and see why this beach is called Sunset Beach. You will love our sunset views from both inside and outside the home. This home is uniquely situated at lake level. Lake level means cooling lake breezes.
