About the Property

Beautiful 2nd fl unit with loft, lovely furnishings, best view @ CSA

As you enter you will catch a glimpse of the loft and it's special loft furniture. Hardwood flooring hallway leads to plush-carpeted spacious great room with cathedral ceilings, tv hidden behind painting above fireplace and huge seating area. The Harbor Room offers views with both seating and dining area. A separate eating area is provided at the kitchen island. For a very special cocktail hour, head out to the deck where a high top table provides great views of the marina and West Harbor with it's constant boat traffic. This is the best rental deck in CSA since it is open @ the end no privacy wall to obstruct view and includes an awning for perfect hot weather enjoyment. For the second honeymoon couple the master bedroom has a queen bed, and cable tv. A stairway complete with 2 handrails (no unsafe ladders !) from the great room provides access to the loft bedroom. ideal for children( NOT infants) or another couple ..ceiling slopes so tall people should consider the master bedroom for fullest enjoyment. Kitchen is equipped with ceramic top range, microwave, dishwasher should you want to eat in. Hardwood floors there are continued into the bath where new walk-in shower for safety and new washer/dryer are located. Keys are provided for entry to the bath/shower house/lounge which is impeccably maintained as we have used it often for those times when everyone wants to shower at once.
The pool is a short walk. After a day at Cedar Point or sightseeing you may want to take your favorite beverage in a plastic glass ( we provide) and soak in the hot tub. Our unit is a favorite with renters who bring their own boat!!
Check out the photo from the deck and note the dock is DIRECTLY below the unit with a sidewalk leading to the docks. Soo much nicer than having to load everything in your vehicle and drive to the other side of the harbor. There is NO EXTRA charge for our dock. We will NEVER ask you to wash our towels before you leave. Knowing you will be in a rush to get on your way home we have our cleaning crew do the linens.

Car: Recommended

Just north of the Sandusky Bay Bridge, Come Sail Away condos offer the best in Lake Erie vacations. We are minutes from the Miller Ferry to Bass Islands and party town Put in Bay where the Federal Park System operates Perry's Monument. After touring the visitor's center you can ride the elevator 300 ft up to an observation deck for a view of the surrounding islands and a discussion of the War of 1812. For birders we are a short drive to Magee Marsh for the spring and fall migration. We are famous for our water parks and of course, Cedar Point as well as East harbor St. Pk beach. Kids go crazy over a day @ African Wild Life Safari, 15 minutes from your door. Our couples have told us they loved the quaint lakeside town of Marblehead (a 15 minute drive)with it's many shops, restaraunts, a tour of a working lighthouse. This is the place to catch the ferry to Kelly's Island for another fun-filled day trip. Try their West Dock restaurant for a dinner and a view of the sunset across the lake. A few miles away in Pt.Clinton, summer weekends bring festivals, art shows in the park, music offerings and dining by the water. From there you can catch the fast ferry, Jet Express, to Put in Bay. If you have your own boat we have a slip with your rental to accommodate up to 30ft boat. If you just want the best walleye or perch fishing available check with the owner who is a licensed Captain offering charter trips or sightseeing. For your dining pleasure 3 miles down the road you'll find Mon Ami, a converted winery with an outdoor garden eating area and the absolute best Friday night seafood buffet. also very well recommended are: Nagoya, Japanese cuisine,and Ciao Belle, Italian cuisine both over look water and provide outdoor Mexican, try Las Casa Palmas. You will find brochures and take out menus included in your guest packet along with ferry schedules for the 3 forementioned ferries and pamphlets from many more places than you will be able to fit in. Your Choice!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have spent our summers and many winter weeks at Come Sail Away since 1989. When the opportunity came up to buy a second condo we jumped on it. We have tried to anticipate all of your vacation needs so you will enjoy this wonderful Island Area of Lake Erie and come away with great memories just as we and our family have over the years. We know you cant do it all the first year and expect you will come many more. Your owner is a licensed Charter Capt, fishing Lake area for 40 years. If you want fishing we will try to fit you in or help you find another charter to meet your needs.

Why the Owner Chose Port Clinton, OH, USA:
We are centrally located on Catawba Island for maximum enjoyment with minimum travel to a large number to activities, attractions, eateries, ferries and beaches. Come Sail Away is primarily an owner occupied complex where friendly people share the quiet peaceful atmosphere. The owners want you to love Come Sail Away and return year after year so we try to make your experience the best possible....we cant control the weather. We provide many brochures to help plan your stay such as current ferry schedules and rates, in your unit along with a "welcome" bottle of wine for that first evening Happy Hour on our deck which provides a wide open view of West Harbor.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Whether you prefer watching boats moving in and out the channel to the lake or a Great Blue Heron fishing from the dock below your condo you just cant beat Come Sail Away. Eagles nest nearby . If you rent with us we know you will fall in love with Come Sail Away as we have. For those who bring their boat we have the very best dock we are an END unit so the dock is just a few steps away for convenience in loading gear. No need to load up your car and drive across the channel. Small children and older adults will appreciate the very short walk to the pool vs units at the far end of the complex.
