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
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!
Our family stayed at Carefree Corner for our 2nd year in a row. Once again fun was had by all. We will for sure do it again.
Cute house within a short walking distance to the lake
Cute house within a short walking distance to the lake. There are 5 bedrooms and we thought there would be plenty of space for our group - 3 children and 5 adults. While there were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms the common areas are not designed to hold that many people. Dining room only has seating for 6 but on the upside there was a high chair for the 2 year old. The family room on the entry floor needs better seating options. 2 of the chairs are so uncomfortable people would rather sit on the floor. The basement has a game room with air hockey, games and a large TV. There is a table and chairs in the basement along with a couch and love seat. The biggest disappointment for us was the back yard. We like to spend a lot of time outside and were unable to do so for 2 reasons. The backyard backs up to main road, so there is a lot of noise from traffic and there was not a patio. There were a few plastic chairs but nothing that would encourage you to be outside.
Just 11 miles to Cedar Point, in a quiet neighborhood with a private beach.
