THIS superb Great Lake beachfront destination allows for first-rate value, privacy AND togetherness, all under one roof.

Stake your claim on this charming place today. WE EVEN THROW IN 4 KAYAKS & CANOE for ADULTS to enjoy a Great Lake from the water. (Stays between 6/1/2020 through 9/18/2020; for later stays, watercraft availability will ultimately depend on the weather.) There's no comparison... unbeatable situation & exceptional accommodations. Look at our pictures, then go ahead & book your Vaca today!

Look at our pictures, then go ahead & book your Vaca today! The cottage is well-equipped with all the comforts of home & is cleaned thoroughly between guests according to CDC guidelines. There are certainly other places to stay in the area &, IF you aren't particular about creature comforts, they may be a good fit. But be careful...some cottages are run by a management company you can't reach after hours, only offer lakeviews from a single bedroom, or have lost their beach to high water completely...ask the right questions! However, IF having a fantastic view, the beach, quality, comfort & a heavenly location ARE important to you, then you can be among our guests who made the right choice & leave here happy & rejuvenated! THE COTTAGE * We believe that the details DO matter...boring, ugly or outdated doesn't happen here! * Built in 1940, she's a well-kept classic lake cottage with modern features: rounded corners, barn doors and plenty of cottage charm * Contemporary interior mixed with timeless beauty and character like original oak hardwood floors * Stunning water views of the lake or canal from every window & deck are intoxicating * This is a NON-SMOKING, PET-FREE HOME THE BEDROOMS * Accommodates 15 guests (comfortably up to a maximum 12 adults and 3 children) * Prevention is key so we start with bed bug covers on pillows & mattresses. (No, we've never had them & do not intend to!) Then, we add the linen-comfort, throw in the sounds of lake waves & you'll be lulled right to sleep! * Room 1: 156 sq feet WITH EN SUITE bathroom, handicap accessibility, queen-size bed, flat screen television, blue-ray DVD player with Wi-Fi accessibility to apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu & 10 ft bay window overlooking Lake Erie * Room 2: 130 sq feet, full-size bed, walk-thru bedroom with canal views (with access to third floor) * Room 3: 117 sq feet, full-size bed, plus twin, dividing wall between beds, lake view from side window, flat screen smart TV with wi-fi accessibility * Room 4: 192 sq feet, queen-size bed, plus twin, 12-foot wide window overlooking Lake Erie, best cottage view for shorter folk as it has a lower ceiling * Room 5: 176 sq feet, queen-size bed, plus twin, lake view from side window, flat screen smart TV with wi-fi accessibility * Bonus room: 1st Level has a futon couch with a real, queen-size mattress, 50' Flat Screen Smart TV with wi-fi accessibility & new full bath adjacent to this room OUTDOOR LIVING * A massive 50 ft wide shaded deck for sunny afternoons * Multiple outdoor dining & seating areas * 92 ft2 Covered porch with outdoor room shades * Steps away from memory-making sunrise walk with a hot cup of coffee…scoop up colorful beach glass & driftwood treasures At night, enjoy a glass of wine on the beach, roast hot dogs & s'mores over a bonfire, while taking in the lighthouse beacon, guiding vessels safely to the Port of Toledo * Fenced in backyard, with small gas grill under covered porch * 4 adult Kayaks & Canoe included on all new reservations! (KAYAKS/CANOE AVAILABLE with an ARRIVAL BETWEEN 5/10/20 through 9/18/20 only. For bookings beyond these dates, our watercraft availability will ultimately depend on the weather.)

Our goal is that your basic needs are covered for you to come in, prepare & feed your large family/group. We even cover the basics in paper products, enough just to get you started until you can get to a grocery store. We cannot begin to accommodate individual dietary/allergy-based requests for groups of this size...therefore, we do not cover food & laundry supplies. CHILD FRIENDLY We are both parents & grandparents parents, so we think like them! * Gates all around, in yard & deck, blocking beach/canal access * Variety of alarm clocks, sound systems oMore

About the neighbourhood
Nestled in a quaint peninsula neighborhood directly on Lake Erie, whether you are looking for a quiet retreat, fun on the beach, kayaking, or water skiing, the beautiful western basin of Lake Erie has something for everyone! The beach is just a few feet down from the deck. The speed limit while on the Peninsula is 20 mph and our neighbors are owner-residents.
Getting around
An extremely affordable and safe way to get around the area is through Lake Erie Transit. You can call and they'll pick you up at the cottage door! Be sure to check on return trips as the buses run during traditional work hours.
