About the property

WiFi is available in this restored historical house with three bedrooms.

Only125 steps from Lake Erie and nearly a century old, this historical house has been updated and newly furnished. Having been built in 1920, it is the second oldest house in this subdivision on Huron’s west side and it allows you to step back to a time of peaceful relaxation. The house is situated on four lots providing huge yard space in a tranquil, quiet neighborhood.

Please note: We do accept reservations for a two night stay during the summer season at the standard rate of $400 per night.

Views of the lake can be seen from the living room and dining area, as well as the first floor bedroom, the master bedroom, and the third floor. The wide verandah style front porch runs the length of the house and is perfect for taking in the view of the lake, relaxing, reading, and talking with friends and family.

The dining table seats eight comfortably and is readily accessible to the remodeled kitchen equipped with a large five-burner gas range and two ovens. A new queen size bed is on the first floor in a small room off the living room and a half bath adjoins this room.

The second floor contains the other new queen size beds. One is in the spacious master bedroom (21’x 15’), and the other is in the guest bedroom (13’ x 14’). A full size futon is located on the very large third floor (30’ x 15’).

In the full basement, you will find the one thing older than the house itself, an antique tournament size 9’ pocket billiards table that dates back to the 1880’s. A Queen Size Futon is located in the billiard room. There is also a separate laundry room with a toilet, shower, sink, & washer and dryer.

The house is so comfortable and the sound of the waves is so soothing that it will be hard to leave it to enjoy the variety of amenities offered by Cedar Point, the Lake Erie Islands, the Huron boat basin, local golf courses & wineries, Thomas Edison’s birth place (located in Milan), the Hayes Presidential Center (the first presidential library and museum located in Fremont), The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (located in Cleveland), and other nearby attractions.

The turn-off from Cleveland Road /Rte. 6 onto the Cedar Point Road (also known as The Chaucee entrance) is just two and one half miles from the house. This allows you to visit the park in the morning, return to the house for a late lunch, a siesta, or dinner and then go back to the park for the evening hours.

Please note, smoking is not allowed in the house.

wonderful week, listing description is exact

  • 5 of 5

WE had a great time. 4 generations under the roof. Oldest 75 years and youngest 5 months. The home was beautiful with a very inviting decor. Super kid friendly with toys, books etc. Spent alot of time evenings on the front porch with the lake view. Neighbors were very friendly and helpful with recommendations for food etc. Neighbor had train display in back yard which was a daily visit for the great grand son. Really very nice beaches in downtown Huron, LakeFront Park with wonderful playground and beach at Nickel plate Beach. Amenities of the home were more than enough. Kitchen furnished with all kinds of items to use forhome meals. Nice shady yard for getting together and yard games available. Accomodations for the bathroooms were more than sufficient for all of us. Felt like we were in up scale hotel with all the amenities in the BRs. Visited 3 different wineries in the area which were very kid friendly also. Berardis was great and our last night we celebrated together at MonAmi which was so nice and kid friendly also. We as a family have vacationed at Lake Erie over 50 years and Huron is our favorite at this point in our life because it offers a pace for all ages. just a note --urgent Care was really a good service. The 2 1/2 great grandson developed 2 ear infections and a viral bronchial infection on the second day of vaca. They were very good with him and he did well with meds. Which eased everyone mind. We would definitely recommend this home. The owner was very accomodating and we thank the owners for sharing this lovely place with us.

Cedar Point family trip

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time for family to spend together. We spent a long weekend at the house with extended family. The house was HUGE. Plenty of space to spread out. We enjoyed one day at Cedar Point Park and had a blast. Very quick and easy to get there from this house. Another day we went to Kelleys Island. A fun day trip and made a stop at the local winery. Also very quick and easy to get to the ferry from the house. In our down time we enjoyed the very large yard (and even a small shed with outdoor games) and also playing pool in the basement. A walk to the beach to listen to the waves was only about 100 steps away. Would recommend this property to others.

Wonderful vacation property!!

  • 5 of 5

Comfy, comfy, comfy is best way to describe our vacation. 6 adults and 4 children ages 10-12. Only an few feet away from lake Erie, kids loved the beach. 15 minutes from Cedar point park. Don't think you'll be disappointed, we weren't. Only bummer, we waited until our last day to grill and the grill ran out of gas right after we started grilling. Other than that, it was a great stay.

Lovely Retreat on Lake Erie

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the loveliest houses I have ever stayed at with Homeaway. We came north for a girls weekend and the house had plenty of space for the five of us. The kitchen was well appointed, the bedrooms comfy and the front porch perfect for just hanging out. We made our plans at the last minute and our host was extremely accommodating. This is a gem.

Beautiful Lake View House Was Perfect for Our Needs

  • 5 of 5

This spacious home exceeded our expectations and was ideal for our group of 7 adults and 3 children. We chose it because of the location and because our grandparents once lived on the same street. This home has a peaceful vibe and it so comfortable because of the open layout, large well-equipped kitchen and abundant seating.

It is clear that the owners love this home. It is welcoming and tastefully furnished. Having two full baths, plus a powder room was great. We also loved the large dining table, the herb garden, the courtyard, the huge front porch, the parking and the quiet street.

We enjoy cooking and grilling and this was the perfect place to host a family gathering with three generations. My cousin created a "Cousins Olympics" series of games for the kids and the yard was ideal for that.

Darcy, the property manager, was helpful at check-in and check-out. The owners provided a guide with info about the home, nearby restaurants and attractions, along with suggestions for the best local dining and shopping.

The owner was pleasant to deal with and returned our security deposit promptly. We would definitely choose this home again!
