Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Any season of the year, ever-changing Lake Erie provides the entertainment while your make memories in this charming cottage.

Because we love spending time here, we have completely remodeled this historic cottage adding all the comforts of home. Past guests tell us that the clean, comfortable house and proximity of the lake exceed their expectations. The panoramic views of Lake Erie from the kitchen, living room and dining room are amazing. Upstairs are 3 private bedrooms with original hardwood floors and an updated full bathroom.

The lakefront deck and large yard invite guests outside and a fire ring is located at the water's edge. Every season brings different birds including bald eagles, purple martins, cranes and ducks. You can fish or swim from the property using large stepping stones or a set of stairs leading into the water. Meticulously maintained and cleaned by the owners, the house is nicely furnished with special attention to bedding, linens, bath and kitchen so you feel right at home. We rent to other home owners who are non-smokers over 25 years old and who agree to respect the home as if it was their own. We want others to enjoy Lake Erie when we cannot be here.

Located on a private lane with more barefoot vacationers than cars. Sandy beaches are everywhere, including a state nature preserve beach within walking distance and a mile-long public sandy beach 2 miles away. Explore many other nearby Lake Erie beaches using the State of Ohio guide to beaches. Budget Travel rated Huron, Ohio one of America's Coolest Small Towns in 2015. Conveniently located one hour from Cleveland and 20 minutes from Cedar Point and Marblehead. If we are full, we recommend vrbo 26376 or 1126421.

About Karen

The owners met here in Hartley Beach and have been married ever since. Now living in Columbus with jobs that keep us much too far from Lake Erie, we love spending our free time here.

Karen purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Karen chose Huron

We chose to buy this cottage because of our family and great neighbors who live on this private lane of a dozen houses.

What makes this cottage unique

It is truly special to find the friendly vacation atmosphere that this neighborhood has. Lake Erie is a powerful attraction that you have to experience to understand. Year round, this is our idea of a get away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

As soon as we stepped in, a big smile came over my mother's face. She was visiting from Saudi Arabia and I wanted to show her the relaxing side of the USA. This house is very relaxing and HOMEY, it was way more than I expected. My mother wanted to stay longer and we will be back.

Nice property with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We rent a house every year to spend time at Cedar Point with our kids after school is out. We have rented several places and have been disappointed. This property is a gem. It was clean and was well stocked with dishes, silverware, glasses, pots and pans. Beds and sheets were comfortable. The view was amazing and you can see sunrises and sunsets. We took time to watch the birds including the bald eagles that visited. Owners were very accommodating. We will be renting this house again.

Outstanding Lake Erie Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very clean and beautifully maintained. It feels surprisingly spacious. Great views of the lake from indoors and from the deck. Four of us stayed three nights, but it would be comfortable for at least two more people. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. You can walk to the next neighborhood with only a brief walk along the main highway. Grocery is only three minutes' drive, and a large shopping area is 15 minutes away.

Owners were exceptionally helpful, providing extensive information about local attractions etc.

Great cottage with amazing views. Great way to celebrate a birthday.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a great place to celebrate my birthday with my friends. The kitchen is well equipped and the view is great. I had one of the bedrooms that overlooked the lake and i was able to open the window a bit to hear the waves. We made a fire in the fire pit by the water and had s'mores. We were amazed by the Bald Head Eagles and the Golden Eagles that perched on a nearby tree. Thank you for sharing your cottage that was great for all of us. Have a wonderful season.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

And the winds blew and Blew and BLEW! But, it did not detract from our visit at all. My sister (from Denver) and I had a wonderful time reminiscing and catching up while watching the whitecaps crash against the shore. We watched some freighters out on the lake. There were bald eagles flying in spite of the wind - awesome! The cottage was spotless but did not in a way that made us feel like we had to "walk on egg shells". We never felt like we were in someone else's home. It just felt like home. The cottage had everything we could have possibly needed. In short, we Loved it! Thanks so much for sharing your slice of paradise Karen!

Beautiful little cottage right on the water. Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just wanted a weekend away from our busy lives. This was the most relaxing weekend. My 6 year old son loved all the board games available. He also enjoyed picking up the binoculars and watching the ducks and boats on the lake. The house is exceptionally clean and fully furnished. We would love to come back during warmer weather.
