Cozy cottage on Lake Erie, Birders Paradise.........

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Adorable cottage located in the private community of sand beach with Lake Erie at your feet. Great place for a relaxing family vacation, girlfriend getaway or anyone wishing to enjoy the lake and beautiful accomadations. This lovely cottage sleeps 2-6comfortably, lush linens and bedding provided. Bedroom 1 has queen bed with soft upgraded linens, bedroom 2 has a single bed that sleeps one. The living room has large windows looking over the lake, the sofa folds out to sleep 2, chair and half folds out to sleep one. The bathroom has whirlpool tub with a rain shower and beautiful ceramic tile, fluffy towels included. Kitchen has stainless steel appliances with microwave and dishwasher, also stackable washer and dryer. Outside you have a large patio. Cozy, fun and relaxing.I recommend getting supplies from either the Community Market in Oak Harbor, which is about 5 miles south of Highway 2 on Highway 19 (I think there is also liquor available at this location) or at Jack's Superette, west on Highway 2 and north on Howard Road. Keep your eyes open for gas stations selling bundles of firewood along Highway 2 if you want to have a fire in the fire pit. The closest large shopping outlet is a WalMart about 10 miles west on Highway 2.

Port Cinton is about 15 minutes east on Highway 2 and is a cute sort of touristy town. There is quite a bit of entertainment, including restaurant, fishing and ferries to some of the offshore islands. Marblehead is another 15 minutes east and is a pleasant place to visit.

Great Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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!

Adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

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.

Awesome time

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we have stayed at the house for our anniversary. It is a quiet neighborhood, and the close proximity to the lake make it an beautiful place to stay. Kathy is a great person to work with and makes your stay as enjoyable as possible. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Perfect location for a outstanding family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed her for 3 nights in October and it was wonderful. Very quiet, romantic spot right on the lake. Kathy was excellent to work with, she was very quick to respond to my emails (this was my first time renting a house) and everything went very smoothly. The house was spotless when we arrived and she had every amenity I have at my home. It was an excellent experience and I would definitely rent this home again :) thank you again Kathy

Great area for the Grandkids

  • 4 of 5

The Lakehouse was very nice and was plenty of room for two adults and two children. It's very peaceful and private for those trying to get away from the hustle and bustle. Still a very close drive to any activity you can think of. There was no beach at the Lakehouse since the water was too high but there are some very nice beaches just down from the playground and within walking distance. The patio was wonderful and we spent a lot of our time relaxing out there. I would definitely recommend this cottage!
