BEACH House/Cottage; one of a kind. for Summer 2018

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Beautifully appointed beach/lake cottage.

Although this is referred to as a cottage it is more representative of a house. Accommodations include open kitchen and family room area with vaulted ceiling. Kitchen features large bar style seating. Also enjoy the picnic table area between the cottages that seats four. Enjoy the wine cooler in the kitchen as well as the endless supply of ice from the built in ice maker…comes in handy for those ice cold drinks in the summer. Walk up the maritime style steps to the loft which sleeps up to two on a queen style bed. Additionally are a master bedroom which features a queen style bed and a bedroom for the kids which features bunk beds and sofa with a ‘full size’ pull out bed. It comfortably sleeps up to four to five kids/teens. The bathroom features a large walk in tile shower. Porch has seating for up to 6 comfortably, as well as seating for up to 8 on the beach. Enjoy the lounge and Adirondack chairs for your sun bathing. Before you come in the cottage after a long day in the sun and sand, feel free to rinse off in the outside shower…great to wash off the little ones as they tend to get sand in every crack and crevice. Please feel free to use the gas grill for cooking out or any of the sand toys and games that are in the shed. You can also bring your own “fun” for the week if you choose.

Additionally on the property is a boat launch; only available to smaller boats and jet skis (if water level permits). You will find a place to fish from the pier…also depending on the water level. There is a courtyard behind the cottages if you want to play on the grass. Enjoy the beach volleyball net for day and the occasional “lighted” night matches.

About Todd Netkowicz

This beautiful cottage was purchased by the Morris family and totally renovated in 2007. It was sold in 2010 to the Netkowicz family and then sold back to the Morris family in December 2014. it is a story you have to hear. This little gem It is what helps us get through the harsh Cleveland winters as we anticipate the warm, sunny days of summer. We hope that other families can get the same enjoyment from this slice of paradise as we do.

Todd Netkowicz purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Todd Netkowicz chose Erie County

This is one of the most unique properties on Lake Erie. Where else can you take 3 steps off your porch and have your toes in the sand. Just beyond that is Lake Erie itself. The sunsets are breathtaking. You will get the feeling as if you were on a beach in the Carolinas.

What makes this cottage unique

Private beach! Private parking! The beach and lake at your fingertips!

Great spot- conveniant, relaxing, secure

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location within reach of local attractions or just stay put. There's plenty to do! The beach is wonderful, the cottage is clean and updated with amenities galore! It is so much more than a resort stay...a little home away from home, with great hosts. We took day trips but were always ready to get back "home."

A relaxing oasis

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for an extended weekend last September at a much needed time in our lives. We had just lost someone very close to us and this was the perfect place to get away and heal. It may be one of those places we visit once a year! The accommodations and hospitality were outstanding. This property was enjoyed by all of us from age 18 to 70+. We have a disabled son who thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the waves roll in.

Fun and relaxing for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cute beach house for 5 weeks last summer. Our family of 5 fit very comfortably and we usually had a few extra teens there to join in the fun. The beach provides great entertainment for the kids and you can watch them from the comforts of your front porch. We found the property to be very clean and well taken care of. The cottage is properly stocked for cooking and entertaining. Several times we had friends out to enjoy the great sunsets and bon fires with s'mores on the pier. Overall, this is a wonderful vacation spot for families. The owners were very helpful, attentive, friendly and answered any questions we had. Our family made many memories at the "lake house" !

This is truly one of the nicest PRIVATE beaches you will find on Lake Erie. Just minutes west of downtown Vermilion, you will find the “Beach Club” nestled on a private beach on the shores of Lake Erie. If you drive by too fast, you will miss it…most people from the area don’t even know of this gem. This is not like other lake properties where you can just get a glance of Lake Erie from a small window or you have to walk down a cliff to get to the beach…or depending on the way the winds blows, there may not be a beach at all. At the Beach Club, there are no cliffs to maneuver and no obstacles impeding your view. It is as easy as walking out your front door and onto the beach. Enjoy your morning reading the paper and sipping on your coffee on your porch as the kids are still sleeping…and boy will they sleep well with all that fresh air. During the day either jump in the car and head to Cedar Point or the Islands for the day, or crash in a beach chair while you watch the kids play in the sand. There is beach volleyball for those who want to get a little sandy. Pick up a game of horse shoes or ladder ball to test your skill. Kids can spend hours playing in the sand. You can even search for shells and sea glass on the beach. Look for the rare red or blue pieces. Although they are rare, we do find them on occasion. See Emma’s ‘glass fish’ filled with sea glass for proof. Don’t forget to take a dip in the lake and/or relax on a float. At the end of the day relax from the leisure of your porch or park yourself in a beach chair and watch some of the most breath taking sunsets that you’ll ever experience…the storms are pretty cool to watch roll across the lake as well. Additionally, on the weekends and occasionally during the week, there is roasting of marshmallows and making S’mores over the fire pit as the stars twinkle overhead. Enjoy our very cozy and beautifully furnished cottage while you spend a relaxing week making memories that will last a lifetime.
