Cozy, Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay there! The rental was so clean and obviously very well taken care of (looked brand new!) We appreciated all the small touches from coffee provided to the small toiletries in the bathroom. The beds were so comfortable too! One downfall is that there is no beach/water access close by. There are some in the neighborhood but you kind of felt like you were walking through someone's yard to get to it. Being that it's called beach view retreat, we were disappointed with that. However, there is a lovely view from the property, both of the lake and the marsh. Only other downside is the property is at the entrance of the neighborhood so there was a lot of both foot and car traffic, stayed very busy and didn't feel very private. None of these were major deterrents to us enjoying ourselves but just a heads up for those unfamiliar with that area.

Perfect home base for birdwatching nearby

  • 5 of 5

Clean as a whistle, comfy beds, kitchen has everything you need. Nice view of the lake and a stream from the deck; watched a black crowned night Heron fishing while I had my coffee. This would be a great get away spot for a small group. Almost nothing nearby so probably not the place if you're looking to party.

Immaculate, completely comfortable, with thoughtful touches from the owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on a birding trip. I recommend this property without reservation. It is spotless. The kitchen is well equipped. There was even coffee in the cupboard. The beds are very comfortable. There is an abundance of extra pillows and blankets. The linens and towels are high quality. The owner has stocked the bath with sample sizes of toiletries as a thoughtful touch. We will definitely stay here again.

Nice weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is nearly brand-new, everything very fresh and well maintained. Cozy, nice getaway, across the street from Lake Erie. The deck looks onto the marsh where there are lots of birds to watch( saw an Eagle). Would definitely rent again!
