Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Get away from it all at a charming Lake Erie retreat located 25 miles West of Erie, PA and 7 miles East of Conneaut, OH. Nestled on five private wooded acres with 365 feet of private beach, the cottage offers a fun-filled and relaxing get-a-way for any type of vacationer.

This 3 bedroom home is available year round. The property is bordered by Lake Erie to the North, Raccoon Creek to the East and to the South and West, the largest tract of undeveloped land on the South Shore of Lake Erie, the Pennsylvania State Gamelands/David M Roderick Wildlife Reserve. The new Lake Erie Bluff's park is also very near by.

Historical property built around 1909 as the Superintendent's house for the Elmwood Home for Boys. The cottage was renovated in 1999. The first floor has a spacious modern kitchen stocked with all equipment to prepare any meal. The living room has a stone, wood burning fireplace to make any night feel cozy. A very large deck on the back is the perfect place to relax, listen to the waves, see the boats go by and watch the hummingbirds dart around the feeder. If the weather turns, the enclosed front porch allows you to take in the beauty.

The second floor has 3 bedrooms. One Queen and 2 Double Beds. The bathroom was also gutted and fully renovated in 1999. Garden style tub.

Badminton, horseshoes and bocce balls are all provided. The large side yard is a great place to play catch.

Hiking: Over 4000 acres of State game lands are just outside your front door.

Boating: The cottage has plenty of room to park your boat. Smaller boats can be launched next door at Raccoon Creek Park. Larger boats will need to go to Conneaut, Elk Creek, or other nearby ramps.

Recently spotted Scarlet Tanager and Rose Breasted Grosbeak.

Fishing: Either from the shore, along Raccoon Creek, or nearby Elk and Walnut Creeks, your own boat or chartering in Conneuat or Erie. Walleye, Trout, Perch and many other species. Ice Fishing in Presque Isle bay is a popular winter sport. *NO CLEANING FISH AT THE COTTAGE*
