About John Sheppard

We have enjoyed visiting Sandusky Bay for more than 20 years by land and by sea. We are delighted to share our condo, it's comfortable amenities, beautiful views and sunsets!

John Sheppard purchased this condo in 2007

Why John Sheppard chose Ohio

When we learned about plans for the Chesapeake Lofts project from the developers in Columbus, we were among the first to purchase a unit facing the lake. After considering the different floors and views, we selected what we think is the best view in the building. Our unit looks out onto the lake and shipping channel which can be especially exciting when, on occasion, a giant freighter passes by within 50' of the balcony.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to many comfortable amenities, our condo offers the perfect 'home base' for your summer fun. Among our favorites -- Easy access to the islands via the ferry docks next door, a 5 minute walk down the street to great dining, or a memorable day at Cedar Point about a ten minute drive away. Enjoy!

Easy living and relaxation

  • 4 of 5

This was our 4th consecutive stay with the Sheppard's. We will continue returning as the property is always top-notch, the owners are more than accommodating to your travel timelines. The setting is close to anything that you desire to do in the area and only a short drive to many other attractions. We like best the ability to day trip in the area and come back to "home" for a rest before heading out again or just staying in and enjoying family time at the condo.

A wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view is better than the pictures show. The kitchen really was stocked with anything we could have needed to make any meal. We really did not do any cooking other than making coffee and hot tea and toasting bagels but everything was there. It was tastefully decorated, just as the pictures show. It was peaceful and quiet. We had chosen to visit Sandusky for the work week, even though it was out of season. This condo was a perfect base to investigate the area. We took to ferry to Put in Bay, visited the lighthouse in Marblehead, visited Thomas Edison's birthplace, Rutherford Hayes' home and several museums. Everything was within driving distance. The condo slept the four of us (two couples) very well and there was space for at least 2 more. Renting this condo was one of the best decisions we have made in a long time.

Awesome Condo. Great View. Safe.

  • 5 of 5

Condo had a great view of the Sandusky Bay. So, it was very interesting to watch the boat and people on the water. Condo was very nice. Beds were comfortable and clean. Pool was great with steps to enter at several locations. Only issue there, no restroom close by. The association had security guards with a gated driveway. Made you feel safe. Security guards were friendly. Your manager, Linda, was nice and very friendly. I just wish the balcony was a little larger so you could sit out there. I want to rent this for next year.

You could see Cedar Points fire works. Restaurants galore. Went the Marblehead lighthouse.

Would highly recommend.

Absolutely perfect! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and totally awesome experience. The condo has a sensational view! The decor and amenities were wonderful and exactly as promised. Chesapeake Lofts is a sensational Lake Erie get away!

Ridiculously perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Sandusky is awesome. It's quaint, has some nice architecture, great food, and fun bars (Dalys and Volsteads).

Chesapeake lofts is a dream. It is a converted papermill it has exposed, steel beams, ductwork and brick, and awesome high ceilngs and THIS unit is as good as it gets. The balcony almost overhangs the water and the views are stunning. It is on the Bay which is more than adequate indeed, it makes it a little more protected from the elements yet still delivering the experience.

I truly want to buy the place and retire here as John and Debbie are planning to do. John was crazy helpful. We arrived after midnight and he waited for us. The DVD player was not working and he brought us a new one. Above and beyond the call!

Sailing is big here and sailboats are all over Sandusky bay. I love to sail so I was in my element just watching and planning for future visits.

The pool looks nice (it was too cool for swimming for us), the treadmills work (there were ellipticals, weights, bikes, etc too) in the fitness center, and the building security is fantastic.

Just a fantastic place both Chesapeake lofts and Sandusky!

next to Jackson Street Pier where you catch a ferry to Put-In-Bay/South Bass Island and Kelly's Island, in the USA, or Peele Island and Leamington in Canada.
