Overall nice house
Disappointed that there was no beach access at the house when I specifically asked to confirm there was beach before booking.
There is beach access out the back door 10 feet away, sorry you didn't see it.
Fabulous view of the lake
My mother and I stayed 3 nights and found the cottage very nicely decorated, clean, and comfortable for two people. It's a great place to watch the changing weather over Lake Erie. We're not large people, but found the beds comfortable. With lake breezes and daytime highs around 80, we found no need to use the AC, even at night. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant for walking. During our stay we visited Magee Marsh nearby and Schedel Gardens in Elmore. Our only concern was very poor television reception, which I understand the owner is addressing. Other than the view, my favorite thing about the cottage was the decor - homey without looking dated or beat-up. It has great north light and would be perfect for an artist's retreat. We would certainly consider staying here again.
Thank you, we hope you will return you were great guest and took great care of our home.
Quiet stay on the Lake
I stayed for 4 days and 3 nights with my 19-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter and we loved it. It's very small but just right for what we needed and right on the lake. Clean and well stocked. The mayflies were a bit crazy, but that can't be helped. The Wi-Fi was very weak which ended up being a good thing as it let us be "unplugged" and spend more time together. I would absolutely stay there again with my family and I highly recommend this for any small family or couple looking to get away.
Yes sorry you stayed right at the time the mayflies were coming in. I don't know about the WIFI we have never had an issue. glad you enjoyed your time at the lake house.
Great Girls Getaway
Spent 4 nights at this darling rental. The owner Kathy, responded to my questions within a day prior to our stay, and emailed answers to a few questions while we were there within the hour. The cottage itself is cozy and comfortable, from the beds to the sofa to the patio chairs. The kitchen was roomier than the photos, and had most of the basic necessities. We loved the Carruth studio fish decor by the stove! The lake view is to die for, the only way to get any closer is to be in the water. Unfortunately, we didn't get to swim, as the little beach was underwater due to a choppy lake. Instead, we sat around the firepit at night, and listened to the waves lull us to sleep once tucked in bed. We are already planning a return visit next summer. Thank you Kathy, for sharing your little slice of heaven!
This cottage is adorable. Kathy has included everything one would need. The beds are comfy, the kitchen and bath immaculate. The view of Lake Erie from the living room is to die for. Although it wasn't weather friendly for lounging on the patio, it is huge overlooking the lake. Room enough to set up a cornhole or ladder golf game. Convenient to Port Clinton and the islands. We took a bike ride on the bikes. The area is great for exploring. I would say to bring your bug spray if you come in the dog days of summer. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you, glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for leaving the lake house spotless. Hope you will return soon, Kathy
Perfect location for a outstanding family vacation!!
It started off as an idea about going to Cedar Point for my son's birthday and ending up, one of the best vacations my family has had. First of all the owner Kathy was great! Quick response to all the e-mails I sent. She has thought of everything. From ice cube trays to toddler friendly rafts. The lake house is beautiful, the view rocks and waking up to the sound of the lake, is priceless (I actually video taped it so I wouldn't forget). I love photography and found a new appreciation for bird watching due to the marsh located out front. I have no complaints. We swam everyday and relaxed some days. Ages 3 to 15 will enjoy, plenty of near by attractions, and the sunset and sunrises are beautiful! I didn't think this house could make me fall in love with Ohio, but it did.
Thank you for writing a great review, love having happy guest!
