About Ellen Brennan-Humbert
This cottage is family owned, a dream of ours since childhood. Raised in Cleveland, one of us still resides there and the other in Newport, KY with our families. Our childhood summers always included a week, or even 2, renting a cottage along this area of Lake Erie. Those memories are still among our most precious. For a family of 13 in the 1960's, traveling 60 miles to a cottage was a cross country adventure. We even rented the cottage next to this at one time.
Ellen Brennan-Humbert purchased this House in 2006
Why Ellen Brennan-Humbert chose Mitiwanga
We fell in love with this property because of it's location and charming bungalow appeal. The first floor has 20 windows, filling the space with sunlight and lovely views of the surrounding community. It is perfect for family gatherings, and located conveniently between the Lake Erie coastal towns of Vermillion and Huron. The sandy beach is deep and well maintained. Every sunset is unique, but always spectacular.

This house is well suited for multiple generation gatherings or several families, having an open first floor plan with multiple seating areas, a full basement, 3.5 baths, 2 kitchens, and a large private deck space. Up to 6 vehicles can be parked on the drive and lot.

Our family had a wonderful time and we are so grateful to have been able to stay here. It was very convenient to our family and all of the attractions. It is always so special to come back home and be in mitiwanga where much of my family grew up.
We had to clean a little when we got there but overall the house is lovely and accommodated us well.
Great Place to Stay for an Extended Family
We had a week long family reunion here in June and this was a perfect location. The house provided space for the children and adults to connect and hang out both together and separately. The kids spent lots of time playing in the finished basement while the adults hung out on the back porch or the great room. It was a short walk to the kid friendly beach where we spent many hours. It is also a short drive to Cedar Point. I would recommend this for a fun, charming place to stay.
Our two families came together to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday. We had friends join us on the weekend and had plenty of space and then some for everyone. The house was ideal for gatherings and had all the comforts of home. We spent a day at cedar point but otherwise enjoyed the house and the beach. We would definitely return!
Best Place on The Lake To Stay!
We had an amazing experience with this house and the owner is such a fantastic person to deal with.
The house itself is gorgeous and huge with spacious dining and kitchen areas, lovely bedrooms and lots of places to enjoy inside and outside the house. The short walk to the lake is easy and the beach is so cozy and private. Everyone in the neighborhood is so friendly and kind and helpful with nearby attractions. The location is great and there is so much to do. I can't say enough about how helpful the owners are and how clean and tidy the house is. Everything you could ever need is in this house and my family and friends had the best time enjoying our time together! Would rent again and again and again!!
Shelly Marks and Family
Great home and location
We stayed here with two other families (6 adults, 2 young adults and 4 children). The home is laid out really nicely and we had plenty of space. Open floor plan on first floor is very comfortable for meals and sitting and catching up. Neighbors were friendly and helpful, and view down by the lake beautiful at sunset. Owners were available and helpful with questions. We will rent again if going back to the area!
Nice, relaxing lake cottage
Our extended family of 6 adults and 5 kids really enjoyed the house which was equipped with virtually everything we needed. The beach (just a short walk) was wonderful and in a park like setting. Just sitting on a bench and watching the water was great. We also used the tennis courts about a block away. It's a small beach/vacation community with friendly neighbors, small streets, and no through traffic. One family member remarked that this goes on the list for a return visit.
Cedar Point is famous for multiple roller coasters with a beautiful lake view from the rides. Historic hotel and large beach accessible. Voted 'best amusement park in the world' for 15 years running. Quaint village with unique shopping nearby. Local wineries abound. The North Coast is a Bird- watching haven. Whether your interest is migratory birds or birds of prey, there is something for every nature lover. Unlimited family entertainment found on the coast and on the surrounding islands.
