We invite you to come and 'get-away' for a week (or two) at this cozy home located on a 1/2 acre of lakefront property and situated at the end of a quiet residential street. Our summer cottage is family owned and operated and we believe in greeting all of our guests and making you feel right at home.
'Little House on the Lake' is the perfect retreat for a small family or adults vacationing together. A beautiful view of Lake Erie can be seen just out the front door and the large open yard is perfect for various summertime activities. Docks are also available to rent for our boat owning guests. They are located within walking distance from the home as well as a free public boat ramp less than 2 minutes away. Not a boat owner? Don't worry, we are also conveniently located between the many boat ferries if you choose others to navigate the sea for you.
A better location for summertime fun cannot be found! Our 'Little House on the Lake' is only a few miles from the famous Marblehead Lighthouse. We are also close to area beaches, restaurants and 'Monsoon Lagoon' the most cost effective outdoor waterpark around. It takes approximately 30 minutes for our guests to get to Cedar Point & Soak City by car and the Erie Islands; Kelley's, Middle Bass, South Bass (Put-in-Bay) and Pelee by boat.
If you need a break from the Lake, why not go shopping? Local businesses offer some other great catches as well. We are 5 minutes from the quaint downtown city of Marblehead which features numerous little specialty shoppes. Shop while you walk along side a beautiful view of the Lake. The quiet and relaxing Lakeside community is also within an arm's reach of our place. Hours can be spent enjoying the countless activities going on inside their gates.
Fishermen: check out the 'Western Basin' known for the most productive fishing on the Great Lakes. Walleye, Perch and Bass can be caught in large numbers throughout the year. Many of our guests have caught their fill of fish without even leaving the front yard! Sunbathers or swimmers: if you are brave, jump into the water & sandy area right in the front yard or visit the nearby beach if you prefer for plenty of fun in the sun.
Activity seeking visitors: play a game of volleyball or golf, hike, run, boat or just site see and take in the many beautiful sights of this region. Tastetesting folks: fill your bellies with a different kind of food every night - Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, vegetarian or visit the steak houses, sports bars, fish and chips spots, wineries, mom and pops homemade food joints or even the beloved chili dog and ice cream quick stop. For the rest of you: just kick back, relax and enjoy a good book by the water's edge.
We must note - if you are looking for fancy, we are not the place for you. If, however, you want something clean, quiet, cozy and relaxing... we are just that. We also realize that during hard economic times most folks do not have money to throw around. Instead of charging some outrageous price for the week like many others do, we offer our home at a very reasonable rate. We encourage you to go ahead and compare... we bet you will not find another house on the water with so much to do at such a low price. This is why we believe many of our guests return again and again.

Great little getaway place on the lake.
Just returned home from a week-long stay at The Little House on the Lake. Very relaxing, lots to see and do in the area. Great restaurants, quaint little shops, plenty to keep you busy. Jackie and Darin were awesome hosts! Any concerns we had were quickly addressed and they were always willing to help with questions or reccomendations on places to eat or shop. Great place to come and recharge your batteries!
Very comfortable and great views. We loved it
Loved the cottage and location was awesome! Owners were very nice. Had a great time. Would come back again!
We have vacationed at Little House on the Lake for the past 15 years. It is quaint, comfy, and clean. It offers wonderful views of the lake and spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Being boaters, we love the location for it's easy access to the lake! The front yard and fishing out front is awesome. The property is very close to all local attractions yet offers total tranquility when you just want to relax! The hospitality and graciousness of Darin and Jackie is second to none!
Nice quiet getaway close to the fun coast
I stayed here a little while ago and really enjoyed it. I stayed for a week and had my dog with me. The cottage is clean and well supplied. There were even condiments like salt and pepper in the kitchen already. It was a bit much for just a single person but at the time it was perfect for me. This is a place I'll come back to and bring my family with me next time.
We came up for the weekend with my daughter and a couple of her friends for her birthday. It was such a beautiful setting- gorgeous lake, huge yard, and the cute, quaint interior of the cottage. It was the perfect size for the 7 of us.
My children and their friends had a blast! We used the paddle boat, made a fire, and just had a lot of fun!
Jackie was so hospitable, helpful, and kind to us. There were tons of fun nearby activities for us to do- Monsoon lagoon, Cedar Point, and Lakeside all within 20 minutes of the cottage. Our stay went by way too quickly!
The local stores and townspeople were also so kind to us as well. We will most definitely be back again! It was an amazing time!
Little House on the Lake
We stayed at The Little House on the Lake in late August. Such a cute cottage rental. 2 bedrooms with comfortable beds. Nice clean bathroom & shower. Our little dog(most places don't allow dogs) just loved the big front yard. Great piece of property with a very nice view of Lake Erie. We really enjoyed the beach area with chairs on the wooden dock. So peaceful sitting out there.(we don't fish but could have easily from there). We were very close to grocery stores, and found lots of things to do. Our stay was very memorable and we would stay there again. The owners were very kind and friendly.
Most important activity... RELAXING!
