Nestled on a quiet street, just steps away from the entrance to Walnut Beach, this fully renovated Victorian offers the perfect setting for your next vacation. The first floor of this two-story home features a full bath with a deep farmhouse sink and standing shower. The kitchen boasts new appliances and is stocked with everything you’ll need including pots, pans, serving utensils, plenty of dinnerware and a coffee pot. The long, family-style dining table in the eat-in kitchen ensures that everyone can eat together including the little ones (a highchair is provided).
Also on the first floor is a bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a large entryway and a family room with a large, L-shaped couch, a 55-inch flatscreen TV, fast internet with wifi and netflix, and an extensive selection of DVDs and board games.
There are three bedrooms on the second floor including one with a king-sized bed and a flatscreen TV. The second-floor full bath includes a shower/tub combo and plenty of natural light. Bath towels are provided, but guests must bring their own beach towels.
While this home is comfortable enough to stay in for the duration of your trip, you’ll probably want to get out and explore its surroundings. Walnut Beach is within walking distance and includes a swimming beach with lifeguards, a playground, a wildlife preserve, volleyball courts, bocce courts, picnic tables, a concession stand, and a short boardwalk.
Point Park, which overlooks the Ashtabula River is also a quick walk and is definitely worth visiting. From it, you can see the Bascule Lift Bridge which goes up every half hour during the summer. (A must-see for young children!) Follow the steps from Point Park down to historic Bridge Street to check out a number of local shops and eateries including Briquettes Smokehouse, Harbor Perk coffeeshop, and Rennick Meat Market.
Also accessible by foot is the Hubbard House which tells the story of the Underground Railroad, and Ashtabula Maritime Museum. And Geneva on the Lake is only a 15 minute drive away. There’s something to do in every season of the year!

Comfortable, cosy and close to beach and Harbor shops/dining
We stayed recently to be nearby for a family gathering and were very pleased with the cleanliness, cosiness, and comfort of this house! We enjoyed coffee in the living room with enough seating for all 6 adults.....the weather was not conducive to beach walks but Walnut Beach is right next door. Well-equipped (coffee filters did it for me) and owners were responsive when we had a question re: internet. Will be booking again for summer reunions!
Nice house in a friendly town!
We just happened to plan a trip to visit family during the worst snowstorm the area has seen in decades! It snowed our entire visit and dumped 30+ inches in 3 days. That being said, the house stayed pretty warm even with 20mph winds blowing off lake Erie! The roads were rough during the storm and we walked the 1/4 mile to the store for additional supplies for the kids, leaving our 2wd minivan at the house. A kind lady stopped and offered us strangers a ride. Everyone we talked to in town was very friendly! I forget the name, but the little bakery just around the corner had amazingly delicious and hot apple fritters that fueled us for the return walk.
The house was well stocked. We enjoyed our stay. The owner had the driveway plowed twice for us so we didn't get snowed in. We will definitely be returning, but during the warmer months so we can enjoy the lake and sunshine!
Great place for steelhead. Both the house and town were a pleasure
We had 6 fly fishermen for steelhead fishing in November. It was central to our fishing.
The house was as described. We all felt that it was clean and very nice place to stay. It was easy cleanup at the end of our stay too.
The food in the town was very good with even several high end restaurants. We liked the Barbecue place - great value.
Hits The Spot, Even In Bad Weather
The weather wasn't our friend this weekend, but the house was cozy and we had a great time anyway! With proper layers, walking to the beach to watch the waves and seagulls was still fun, as was the charming downtown area - specifically, the chili cookoff which had over a dozen shops and restaurants offering FREE samples of their chili (perfect for a chilly, rainy day) while the kids could also pick up some Halloween candy.
Back at the house, the living room was quite comfortable for relaxing - with a huge couch and a stockpile of blankets - and the big dining room table was great for some games (while the smaller table was reserved for puzzles!) The house fit the bill quite well, and we'll definitely keep it in mind for future vacations - hopefully ones where hanging out on the beach (or at the fire pit in the backyard) are more feasible!
Great stay, as advertised!
We had a guys getaway weekend with 8 of us and really enjoyed our time here. Enough space for all, beautiful big house with lots of character in the house, yard, and surrounding area. We did yard games in the yard, but we're close enough to walk down to the beach for volleyball and frisbee, etc. Kitchen was big enough to cook a breakfast meal in and we grilled out the evening before. A great time was had by all! Thanks!
Beautiful home, fully renovated and roomy
Great location, and comfortable throughout. All the amenities. Loved the large family table - and Netflix!.. Wonderful owner. Walking distance to town, which has character and good restaurants (kids were enthralled by the draw bridge).. Walnut beach is just around the corner and is so neat. Drove to wineries and the township park, where there was live entertainment. Really fun and relaxing at the same time.
