About Stacy Sohner

Paul and Stacy Sohner:

We are originally from Tucson, Arizona and moved to Columbus, Ohio (Go Bucks!) 13 years ago after traveling and working throughout the United States. We have been married for 19 years and have 2 wonderful children!

Stacy Sohner purchased this condo in 2007

Why Stacy Sohner chose Oak Harbor

Water Ways is our home away from home! We love to escape and go to the lake for some rest and relaxation! We chose Green Cove for its close proximity to all of the Lake Erie attractions, while still retaining the quiet resort community atmosphere! We enjoy the convenience of being so close to the marina and boat launch and having so many wonderful beaches to chose from! The kids love to go up to the lake, playing in the water, swimming in the pool and romping on the playground.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy an award winning pool, tennis courts, catch and release fishing ponds, boat docks and onsite fishing charters. We have the unique ability to offer our guest availability for up to 42 guest with our neighboring cottages!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to let you know we had a great time and enjoyed the condo. It was, as you promised it would be, VERY well stocked!! That’s a really nice plus that most places don’t have. We enjoyed using the bikes, the gas grill, the beach chair & umbrella and pool noodles. And we really appreciated (especially my wife,) the very well supplied kitchen (dishes, cups, utensils, etc.)! That made things so easy!! Thanks!!

We found the condo to be a good launching point for activities (Cedar Point, Beach, etc.) but also a great place just to hang out (pool, fishing, etc.) and we only wished we could have stayed longer! The week was over too soon!

We came to Sandusky for dance competition. And wanted to stay near the lake. The condo had everything very clean, very nice. We had mini vacation before we started dance. Very relaxing and quiet. Neighbors were very nice. I was impressed how the owners thought of everything. Bikes, fishing poles, etc. This condo will be our first choice If we go back again. Thank you.

Comfy, cozy and clean

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Water Ways! Even though six of us were sharing one bathroom, we had plenty of space. We used the high top tables in the three seasons room to eat our meals. The condo is nicely equipped with towels, linens, extra pillows, plenty of dishes and utensils. Things are a bit dated, but everything worked well, especially the air conditioners. It was hot when we arrived, but it cooled down quickly with the two units and the ceiling fans. The first floor could use a lamp or two to make it more conducive to reading and relaxing and a coffee table might make it easier to play board games with a group, but all in all it was nicely appointed.

We enjoyed the pool and took advantage of the bikes that were left on site to pedal around and explore the waterfront and marsh areas. Stacy has lots of pool and outdoor equipment in the closet as well as games, a video game system and the television with Netflix and Amazon Video built-in. Everything we needed for our long weekend!

This location is nice if you want to do both Put-In-Bay and Cedar Point as its about equidistant between both (Miller's Ferry was our choice to the island). Its a bit far to the grocery, but not horrible. The closest gas station/convenience store was not very clean, so we made the trip to Walmart or Kroger. We also enjoyed ice cream at a local ice cream shop, but again, its a bit down the road to reach these things.

We searched for a beach close by, but it we never found one to swim from. We did, however, stumble upon Crane State Park not far from the condo complex (drivable). We walked the bird watching trail and stopped by the lake on a beach there, but it was not a swimming beach. It was still worth the trip and made for a really nice day outdoors. Regardless, the pool is lovely and our boys had fun there everyday of our stay.

All in all, this was one of the nicer vacation rentals we've stayed in. Very clean, very comfy, equipment enough for all six of us and worth visiting! Thanks Stacy!

Awesome weekend

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and exactly as advertised. It had everything we needed for our stay and more. We towed the boat up and took full advantage of the dock that comes with the unit. What do you say after a three day limit and the perfect place to stay? Thank you, we'll be back!

Great extended family trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 adults and 5 children aged 13-19) had a great time. The unit had everything we needed. The kids loved the bikes and fishing poles. We all enjoyed the pool.

We've been to the area the past 16 summers but usually stay in Port Clinton. It was a nice change to be I. oak Harbor. We made quick trips to Toldeo for a mud hens game and spent a day at Maumee Bay state park.

We had a great time in a great place. Thanks for thinking of everything we would need! Looking forward to next year's vacation already!

Everything you need for a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Water Ways for a long weekend and had a very enjoyable stay! From initial contact through follow-up after our stay, communication with Stacy was excellent. The condo was just as presented in description and pictures. Also, it was spotless! Everything was clean and comfortable to make us feel right at home for the long weekend. The surrounding area is beautiful and has plenty to keep you busy. We went boating, relaxed at the pool and even had dinner at the Mon Ami winery during our stay. I would highly recommend and will stay here again.
