About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This unique, vacation home is situated on a huge, lakefront lot high on the cliffs of Pt. Dover and overlooks the harbor and Lake Erie's Long Point Bay. The location is famous for its stunning view and its breezes which invite relaxation. Lounging in the spacious lakefront yard, enjoying the ever-changing vista of the water and boats in daytime, or seeing the moon shimmering on the lake at night are experiences to treasure. It is but a short walk or ride into Port Dover, a friendly fishing village, which is a destination spot offering quaint shops, the Lighthouse Theater, the Harbor Museum, casual and fine dining, Port Dover's famous beach, and a myriad of waterfront activities. Opportunities for boating, fishing, golfing, and horseback riding,star-gazing, zip lining and hiking are available. Drives in either direction along the lakeshore are scenic and interesting. Day trips could include jaunts to Niagara Falls and Niagara wine country, African Lion Safari, and theater in either Stratford or Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The well-appointed, spacious, split-level home has four large bedrooms (one queen bed, three doubles, two singles), two full baths, one half bath, lovely living and dining rooms, mahogany picture windows that frame the Lake view from every room, hardwood flooring, a large fully-equipped eat-in kitchen, new appliances, central air and heat, cable TV, outdoor gas grill, two-car garage, and comfortable lawn chairs and picnic tables.

About Susan

I am the third generation owner of this magnificent property and wonderful home which was built by my grandfather in 1963. The home is situated in the middle of a huge well-landscaped and treed lakefront lot with a panoramic view of Lake Erie. This prized location is ideal for both relaxation and the many various water activities available locally. The split-level home has spacious rooms with huge mahogany framed windows in each room which make it possible to enjoy viewing the lake either indoors or outdoors.

My family and I haved cherished this lake retreat and look forward to spending time there each summer. All ages have and do enjoy this home and site.

Guestbook comments from the manager

For the past eight summers we've taken our children to "Lake Haven". It's a carefree family vacation that offers a great escape from busy city living. There are so few places where kids can run free, explore the lake and beaches and be outdoors from sun-up to sun-down. We've loved the spacious living room and dreamy views of the lake. The hard is HUGE and shady. The kids play football, soccer, baseball and frizbee---even large enough to fly a kite! We enjoy the daily outings to town for boat watching, jet-ski rentals, shopping and ice cream. It's a throw-back to small town living----very charming and relaxing. We're building long-lasting family memories and traditions at Lake Haven

Relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this lovely home for 2 weeks during the Summer and absloutely loved the vacation! The home is spacious and charming with a well-appointed kitchen, comfortable furniture and amazing views of Lake Erie from almost every room. We had our three children along and they thoroughly enjoyed playing outdoors, walking to the neighborhood beach access, biking into town for shopping, Putt-Putt, sailing and eating. The home would be perfect for small family reunions, couples get-aways or extended stay in the area. It's a short drive to area attractions like African Lion Safari (we loved this), Niagara Falls and the Niagara Wine region, Long Point beaches, zip-lining and more! The area is full of farms and we love to stop off at the "pick your own" farms for Ontario's amazing fresh produce. The Famer's Market on Silver Lake was fun to attend (Saturday morning), especially when the crew rowing team is out on the lake. I hope to be back in the Pt. Dover area again and will definitely stay at this home again. Angela Ranson (owner) was very nice and easy to talk with about the property. She made booking this vacation very easy to manage.
