About the property

Lake House - 2 King Suites -*Guest House/3rd King suite-*Game Room/Kids Bedroom

The Lake House at Cedar Point is located on the Cedar Point Chaussee and lies in the strip of luxury waterfront homes between the south shore of Lake Erie and Sandusky Bay.

The Lake House offers a stunning design with comfortable newer furnishings and decor. The ground floor boasts an open floor plan with breathtaking panoramic views of the bay. A gourmet kitchen, multiple eating areas, teak boat bar, 55 inch flat screen, and a gas fireplace make it ideal for family gatherings and entertaining. The walkout patio leads to a private manicured lawn on Sandusky Bay with plenty of outdoor seating and lush landscaping.

Up the stairs to the second floor you will find four well appointed private bedrooms, a 5th bedroom loft and two large full baths. The 1st Bedroom Master King Suite has a large bathroom with his and her sinks and a luxurious Jacuzzi tub overlooking the bay. The commode and large shower are in their own private room. The walk-in closet also has a full laundry. This spacious king suite has vaulted cherry wood ceilings, a remote controlled fireplace, a 42 inch flat screen TV/DVD, and a small kitchenette with a mini-fridge and coffee maker. A private deck offers spectacular bay side views or lay in bed, as if you were sleeping on a yacht, and look out upon the bay vista.

The 2nd Bedroom King Suite is large and comfortable with a 46 inch flat screen TV/DVD, ceiling fan, accent lighting, and cherry wood vaulted ceilings. This suite has a large unique three-quarter round window ideal for watching the sun drop gracefully into the bay and also offers a lake view from the bed.

The 3rd Bedroom Queen Suite is a private and cozy retreat with vaulted ceilings, lake view, 36 inch flat screen TV/DVD, ceiling fan, and a large closet.

The 4th Bedroom Suite has a lake view and is conveniently located adjacent to the full bath and the third queen suite. This child friendly room offers a full and twin built-in bunk bed and a 32 inch flat screen TV with 'net-connect' that is ready for gaming.

The second floor common 2nd Full Bath is spacious with a large jetted tub overlooking the lake and separate shower.

Continuing upward is a 5th Loft Bedroom with cherry hardwood ceilings and many interesting nooks. This room has a TV/DVD, and a fold-out queen sleeper sofa. A large round window offers views to the Lake while a tilt out window allows you to let in the Lake breeze.

Up two more steps and through a key-lockable door you will find the upper Loft/Office. Overlooking the master king suite this compact nook-type room offers a comfortable chair and desk. You may wish to open the two skylights and workout on the 'Multi-Gym' exercise machine provided.

Less than twenty feet from water's edge you will find the *Guest House 6th Bedroom King Suite, this unique nautical structure offers spectacular unobstructed views of Sandusky Bay. The top of the Millennium coaster is visible on the skyline view through the large 8 foot wide glass sliding door. This cozy, private retreat has amenities such as a king size bed, coffee pot, small refrigerator and microwave, and a full bath *(The Guest House bath is operational May 1st through November 1st).

There are many of games of skill such as Air Hockey, Foosball, Darts, etc. This outpost offers all the comforts of home including a second full size refrigerator, fireplace, a large flat screen T.V., and a half bath *(The Game Room half bath is operational May 1st through November 1st). Children may wish to utilize the four twin bed/lounge chairs provided and bring sleeping bags for a "sleepover" in this fun hideout. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the Game Room rain or shine.

Now on to the beach… Past the historic “1937 Michigan” thirty-two foot wooden sailboat nestled in the landscape, a short walk down the driveway and across the street is the beautiful, sandy, private beach. Enjoy swimming and basking in the sun while sitting on one of the beach chairs provided. If you prefer the shade, relax under the natural canopy of trees on the large two person hammock. You may also wish to take the two person sea kayak provided for a paddle in the surf on beautiful Lake Erie.

On the Bay side… enjoy croquet, badminton, bocce ball, horseshoes, cornhole, and many other outdoor family activities. Paddle out onto the sheltered waters of Sandusky Bay and encounter the unique wildlife habitat, you will see a variety of birds, ducks, turtles, fish or possibly a white swan or bald eagle; or enjoy a cruise up the coast for a self-guided architectural tour of the waterfront homes in the canoe or rowboat provided. You may wish to lounge on the large sundeck/dock overlooking Sandusky Bay. This waterside area is great for sunbathing, shore fishing, or just watching the watercraft cruise by.

A charming, rustic, submarine home getaway on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful!! Pictures do not do it justice. Tons of character!! The house is a little smaller than I imagined, but the layout and use of space made it super functional and perfect for our girls weekend. I’m a student in interior design and I love and appreciate the details, craftsmanship and space planning that went into this house. Every inch of space is used efficiently. The House was very clean. The outdoor entertainment/game space was very fun! The view and outdoor spaces were perfect. We would love to come back when the weather is warmer!! The only negatives we encountered, was the living room fireplace not working and we thought there was outdoor speakers or someway to play music from our phones in the house, but we never got it to work. I contacted Robert the morning after we arrived and he promptly came over and tried to fix the fireplace and he found music channels on cable that we could choose from. Very nice of him to do so. I’m pretty sure the fireplace might just be broke or need a new part, it never worked and it made that space just a little chilly, nothing a sweatshirt couldn’t fix. The music thing was a little disappointing to not figure out, no dance party, but it was not the end of the world. Maybe a Manuel around the house that instructs how to operate or where to find things. Maybe we were trying to play music off the wrong system..... We are 30 and very tech savvy. Not even an auxiliary cord worked. It was an older wide Apple charging base. Thank you Robert for addressing our concerns and trying to make it right! If you love charm and character in a home, rent this now!!

Owner's Response: The fireplace was repaired but it did take about three days to receive the new part required for the repair. I apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks for the input on the stereo system. We will be upgrading to a bluetooth capable system. Sincerely, Robert

Thanksgiving Escape

  • 5 of 5

My family (9 adults, 8 kids) descended on the Lake House for Thanksgiving weekend. Even during the off-season it was a wonderful destination. The kitchen is well stocked for preparing and serving food for large groups, and there are two large tables so family dinners were comfortable. There are many nooks within the house so that when you wanted a moment away from the crowd, you were were able to find a comfortable couch in a loft. For outdoor activities, the kids were brave enough to take out the row boat while the adults enjoyed the fire pit. I would recommend this place to any large group!

Lake House at Cedar Point

  • 4 of 5

Overall the accommodations were "as billed". Great location, super quaint and the view....OUTSTANDING!!!!!!

Two things to work on.....make sure you put Cedar Point Road in your GPS not Cedar Point Drive (my mistake) and the little bugs and spiders are pretty darn pesky....something to help with them would be nice. Other than that.... SUPER PLEASED!!!!!

Very relaxing, beautiful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Had everything that we needed to feel right at home. Kids and adults had plenty to do in the game room and with the outdoor activities provided. The only downside was that the outdoor furniture had alot of spider webs ! Truly a wonderful property.
