About Debbie

We have been in the rental business for over 30 years making sure that our guests have a worry free and pleasurable lifestyle.

Debbie purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Debbie chose Erie

Erie is the best place to be in the country during the spring, summer and fall. There are so many activities and it is great for snow birds to escape the heat of the south in the summer. It is one of the most affordable vacation spots in the country. If you enjoy winter activities, we have skiing, ice fishing, snowboarding and shopping.

What makes this cottage unique

The best benefit of staying at Kelso Cottage is that it is fully equipped. All you need to do is bring your bathing suit and beach towel to enjoy the beach and everything Erie has to offer. Also, there is a large amount of parking so there is room for your boat (less than 25ft) and car. The location is close to everything Erie has to offer.

Cozy house for a couple, with good location to nearby attractions

  • 5 of 5

Located just minutes from several Erie, PA beaches, and right next to a water/amusement park, this cozy cottage served me well for a long holiday weekend with my partner. The house provides enough room for a couple. And with two bedrooms, a full bathroom with laundry machines, a kitchen table with four chairs, and two couches to watch TV, it could accommodate up to 3-4 people if needed. The house was clean and provided normal appliances and kitchenware for us to use. The renter was very accommodating and helpful, tipping us off about fireworks we didn't know about beforehand--which we were able to watch up close from the backyard picnic table. Very enjoyable stay. Would rent again.

Labor day get-a-away

  • 4 of 5

Me, my wife, and another couple spent the Labor day weekend here and we all enjoyed it very much. The private beach was only a 10 minute walk away from the house, the amusement park was right next door ( I was a little nervous about this, but everything was shut-down by 10 p.m.), and the peninsula beaches were only about 15 mins away. The house was super clean and the owner was extremely easy to deal with. We will be back next year!!!!!!!!!!
