About The Owner

Myself Leonidas and Richard, the other owner of the property, are hard working people in big cities that found the town of North East and fell in love with its nature and beauty.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose North East

We bought this property in order to enjoy the views of water and nature. We fixed it and decorated it and we are happy seeing our guests discovering the beauties we discovered earlier. If you look at the water from your deck , you have to know it is a lake , otherwise you think the ocean is in front of you

What makes this house unique

North East is a small town, quiet and with the most beautiful and polite people you can find. Still you are close to big cities , like Erie, Pittsburgh or Buffalo. Within minutes or the most 2 hours you can be in this beauty of North East and all you can desire. Water activities, biking, wineries, casino. If you are a writer, a poet or a painter, we are sure you you can get inspired. If you just want to get away, come and stay in this house, enjoy sunsets and grill great seafood. If you want theater, concerts just take a drive to Lake Chautauqua (15 minutes away).

Nice place but fumbles on some fundamentals

  • 3 of 5

Overall the location and property met expectations. The location is great and has beautiful views! We highly recommend The Skunk and Goat Tavern in town!

On the downside, we feel that the communication could have been better. We had no way to contact the owner other than through the HomeAway app. This wouldn’t have been a problem except we wanted the WiFi code on Friday when we arrived and didn’t receive a text giving us the code until 48 hours later. We were back home in Cleveland by then!

I read the reviews and it seems to me like a simple solution to all the people wishing they knew about the WiFi at the cottage would be to just GIVE THE CODE. Write it on a card and leave it at the cottage.

Similarly, we tried to play a DVD Saturday night and the instructions available are inadequate. We can typically operate the basic electronic devices in our home so this shouldn’t have been difficult. Again, a brief instruction on a notecard would help since the cable hookup prevented the DVD player from being intuitive. In this instance, we contacted the owner for assistance (again, only by way of the HomeAway app since they never gave us their contact information) but didn’t hear back until Sunday evening.

Owner's Response: I am sort for the miscommunication. Still my main house was next to yours and you could have left a note. Also you had my email since I sent the welcome information. The DVD is on the TV set and it starts as soon as you insert the disk like the car cds I hope you will enjoy the rest of your summer and have a great day Once more thank you for staying at Escape2

Cozy and clean!

My husband and I booked a weekend away from everything at this cozy, clean and bright cottage. It was perfect. It was quiet and had all the amenities we needed. We were able to tour local breweries easily!

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th year staying on this property, but our first time staying at Escape 2. With our growing family we thought this house would better fit our needs and it certainly did. It was very clean, beautiful, and cozy inside. We still had a nice view of the lake and everything we needed for our family. The photographs online do not do it justice, it is even more lovely than I had expected. We look forward to returning next year!

Great Getaway House!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were thrilled with Escape 2! The house was immaculate, well decorated, nicely stocked and just as advertised. The owner was quick to answer any of my questions at any time before, during, and after our stay and we got our security deposit back right away. We plan to go back. Highly recommended!!!

This quaint lake cottage was perfect for us. We had the serene views of the lake & we were a short drive to presque isle and the casino. The house is well maintained and lovely. We can't wait to come back!
