About the property

Haven Cottage, Overlooking Lake Erie With Access To A Private Beach

The Haven is a cozy two bed room, one bath, turn-of-the century cottage upgraded with on-demand hot water and a gas fireplace. The kitchen has a gas stove and large refrigerator for your use. The Living room/dining area look out on Lake Erie. A screened in porch allows quiet enjoyment of the lake and its beautiful sunsets.

A short woodland walk along the shoreline provides access to a private beach and the potential of long sandy walks. A labyrinth in the woods provides meditational space. Eagles are often seen flying over head. It is a place of nature's sounds and wonders.

It is a wonderful retreat spot for the artist, writer, meditator or naturalist.

Haven Cottage, Overlooking Lake Erie With Access To A Private Beach and Woods
average rating of 4.5555553 based on 9 reviews

Great private setting. Comfortable cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great 17 days at Lotus Abode. Cottage is older but the reason we come back to the Lake, is to be on or in the Lake. The beach is at the end of a long sandy stretch and due to a rock point people can't walk further so it is nice and private. Enjoyed the sunsets and campfires in the evening on the beach. Also loved the screened in porch both mornings and evenings. Have stayed at several other cottages in this area before. Highly recommended vacation rental.

The place was clean and tidy. Nice breeze off the lake. We loved the screened in porch. A short walk to the beach which was clean and warm. My kids, husband and I had a blast. We will definitely book again!

Relaxing, Renewing, Stress Free Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was quaint having almost everything one needs for a relaxing vacation, Spent 95% of our time on the screen porch, reading, doing jig saw puzzles and just watching the sail boats go by. The private beach is a short walk away. It was everything it said it would be and more. Hope to be able to visit again.

The haven is a beautiful place with breathtaking view of Lake Erie. We loved staying here.

The place however could do with a good clean up.

Rustic charm right on the lake

  • 5 of 5

The Haven is just that--a haven. My wife and I spent a week there with my parents. We had a wonderful time and the setting is absolutely wonderful. In addition to spectacular sunsets, there is a Bald Eagle family in the trees just outside. The cottage feels much roomier than its small footprint may give the impression of. Although the rooms are small, the cottage slept four adults quite comfortably. It's a charming little place with a lot of history and ambiance. Susan, the property manager is a doll and extremely helpful. She had a lot of good suggestions of what to do and places to go in the area. It's a great place to just come and unplug. Walk the beach to look for beach glass, take a drive around the countryside or just sit and watch the sunset followed by a nice fire in the fire pit. Can't wait to come back.
