About Leslie Thornton
Ken and I live and work in Southern Indiana. We are both workaholics, and we decided a few years back that hard work should be rewarded with great vacations. We are rollercoaster fanatics, and we love Cedar Point. We buy season passes, and go ride the rides or visit the waterpark every day. We love having the option of going home for lunch, or when the park gets too crowded or too hot, just taking the afternoon off and heading to the beach.
Leslie Thornton purchased this House in 2015
Why Leslie Thornton chose Huron Township
We found ourselves drawn back, year after year, to Lake Erie and Cedar Point. We stayed in hotels, at resorts, cabins, in rental homes... but nothing ever seemed to live up to my expectations. We always had a good time, but I always kind of felt cheated for having spent so much money to stay somewhere that always felt...well, plastic. I wanted to stay somewhere that offered the best of both worlds: a place that you walk into and think that it is beautiful and "yay! I am on vacation!" but also a place that is comfortable, where you can cook a decent meal and relax. When we found this house, we knew it was the one. It was extremely formal, covered in wallpaper, and nothing inside like I wanted it to be, but I could see what it was meant to be, and I have worked tirelessly to make it into my vision. I didn't fill it with mass produced decor and particle board furniture. I scoured through antique stores and vintage shops finding just the right pieces. Yes, I bought some new things, but a huge amount of what I did was to find things that were just like my house at the time...Beautiful, but not quite what they were supposed to be. I am very proud of the work I have done, and I am hopeful that other families will love it as much as I do.
What makes this House unique
The one thing that you cannot change about a property is the location, and that is what we like best about this house. The neighborhood is made up of upscale summer homes, with a beautiful private beach. We are tucked into the corner of the neighborhood, so that it feels more private than other locations. There is a playground, volleyball and tennis courts, and a place to park your canoe or kayak on the beach. We can walk to local restaurants or drive into Sandusky in a matter of minutes. And Cedar Point...I feel almost as if it is in our driveway. It takes 20 minutes, and that includes the wait to get through the gate. The best of both worlds...our vacation home make you feel like you are on vacation, but at home at the same time.

Awesome Home! Simply Perfect!
Leslie made sure every detail was addressed ensuring a perfect stay. Her attention to detail was so appreciated, that we simply showed up with our clothes and hit the ground running. Thank you Leslie for making our family reunion stress free, and a memory maker!
This is our second times staying here and once again we all enjoyed our stay. Beds are very comfortable, tons of room for our 3 families, great kitchen with all the pots and pans you need. Location is quiet and the house is very cozy. Would recommend to anyone.
Perfect place to hold family Christmas Eve gathering - . Comfy and cozy with plenty of room for all!! Leslie is a very responsive hostess and even ordered a white Christmas for us!! Would definitely like to return in warmer weather.......
This place was perfect for ladies group.
The only thing that I would improve on is the seating in the living room upstairs. There is not enough comfortable cozy seats for everyone to gather in. The chairs in that room are very uncomfortable. However, we had a wonderful stay. Thank you!
Great location to Cedar Point
