Welcome! This waterfront vacation cottage has been owned by our family since 2012. When we purchased the property, the goal was to keep the historical ambiance and features that make it such a great place and make it even better. Since then we have continually added improvements to enhance the lakefront experience.
We are currently (Winter 2018-2019) working on a major renovation and expansion, which when complete, will provide five bedrooms, two full baths and two half-baths along with a new Lake Room space providing floor-to-ceiling glass directly facing the water. Additionally, for foundation protection we are raising the house almost three feet. This will further improve the already incredible lakefront views. After the completion of this work the house will comfortably accommodate 14 people.
A huge benefit of the expansion provides first floor accommodations for less mobile family members. Along with the existing full bath on this level it will provide access to those who have trouble navigating stairs. See the photo section for floor plans and layout.
Another new perk is the house membership in a local fitness club that is less than a five minute drive away. The Huron Health Club provides a wide variety of equipment and exercise options.
With all of these improvements the best parts of the cottage will still be intact, including the fireplace (which will be converted to gas for easier use) the intimate bar, and the wood paneling in the original portions of the house. This lakefront escape will continue to be pet-friendly and keeps the convenient yard and deck areas. And the property is still only 15 minutes to Cedar Point, 10 minutes to Kalahari, and 5 minutes to Sawmill Creek with continued proximity to all the other fun activities along the south shore of Lake Erie.
Feb 9 update: New Bedroom 5 is being expanded to accommodate two twin beds instead of a second bunk bed and the existing upstairs half bath will be replaced with a brand new, expanded half bath along with the new upstairs full bath.
