Located in the small town of North East, PA, east of Erie, we're in a small, beautiful, historically cottage neighborhood with access to a private beach for residents and guests only.

Beach access is easy -- no cliffs, no bluffs, no staircases -- just a short walk 99 steps down our quiet road. We provide a wagon for your kids or your beach gear. We have a natural Lake Erie shoreline with stones and sand where you can swim, hunt for beach glass, skip stones, sunbathe, build driftwood camp fires, roast marshmallows and hot dogs over a fire, make s'mores, walk along the shore or enjoy a glass of wine while watching our fabulous sunsets. Each night is a different show -- my favorite is when the sun 'falls' into the lake in front of colorful skies.

We recommend beach stone painting and driftwood painting as a fun activities for all ages. You provide the artists. The beach has plenty of driftwood for small campfires!


Bring your bikes... with only 12 homes on our tucked away street there is very little car traffic. Older kids can ride around the neighborhood, and adults can be more adventurous if you'd like. North East is gorgeous for biking and running with miles of vineyards and orchards.


Launch your kayak, paddleboard, canoe or sailboard right from the beach. Larger boats and jet skis can be launched from the North East Marina, just 1.4 miles east.


We are in the heart of Pennsylvania's wine country, where you'll see miles of grape vineyards and orchards. Pick-ur-own or buy freshly-picked produce at one of numerous roadside farmstands. Watch wine being made and experience wine tastings as close as 0.5 mile away. If you are lucky enough to visit during grape harvest in September, you'll experience the aroma of ripened grapes on the vine as the aroma fills the town.


Fishermen love our proximity to excellent walleye, perch, lake trout, bass and steelhead fishing -- this is the world renowned steelhead alley. Our location is between 16 and 20 Mile Creeks, both are popular for stream fishing. Elk Creek and Walnut Creek are a 30-40 minute drive. Looking for a charter? Ask me to put you in touch with my brothers who fish on a pro team locally and offer charters or recos.

Summer events include weekly live Music in the Vineyards at Penn Shore Winery, Arundel Cellars, Lakeview Wine Cellars, Picnic in the Park and Farmer's Markets, and local festivals. High Season continues into fall when the wineries are abuzz with harvesting. WineFest (last weekend of September) and Harvest Wine Fests (the first two weekends of November) are bustling event weekends. Lake Erie Wine Country events occur throughout the year. Check their calendar. Surprise your Valentine with the Wine & Chocolate Event in February. Uncorked is a fun March wine walk event with a dress-the-theme component. Wine & Cheese Weekend occurs in May.


You may prefer to visit on a quieter weekend when the wineries winemakers have more time to spend with each guest. Try winter or spring for a more personal experience and for snow sports at Peek 'n Peak Ski Resort. Wineries are open YEAR ROUND, with the exception of major holidays when some wineries close for one day only.


Are you a shopper? Many people visit Erie to shop with no sales tax on clothing. How about a holiday shopping weekend? Veteran's Day has great sales.

About Lynne Clement

I'm Lynne Clement. I love managing our rental properties and being a marketing consultant/property manager for other vacation rental owners. Look me up if you need help. I am also a full time web content writer. Originally from Erie, PA, I have lived all over the country for 20 years. When our kids became school-aged, we moved back to Erie where they could have a place to call home and have close relationships with extended family. I am also a Nittany Lion, Xavier Musketeer and Procter & Gamble alum. My husband Duane is a UB Chemist and Chemical Engineer who was transferred into Brand Marketing at Procter & Gamble. He now runs a software company. With our cottage rentals it is very important to us to delight our guests with a clean, well-stocked, comfortably furnished home.

Lynne Clement purchased this house in 2009

Why Lynne Clement chose North East

As a child, my favorite memories were of visiting this special beach community. My dad's best friend owned this little slice of heaven where kids could be kids and adults were always in a good mood as they enjoyed good company. My parents eventually bought the home next door to their friends. Years later, my husband and I bought the house on the opposite side so that we could provide happy traditions and memories for our kids. I have been coming to this place for 40+ years!

What makes this house unique

I wanted my kids to grow up ejoying the same memories I had... swimming at the beach, treasure hunting for beach glass, outdoor bbqs, gathering driftwood for bonfires complete with s'mores and hot dogs, searching for and carving that perfect roasting stick, catching minnows and crayfish in the creek, walking barefoot on dirt roads to the beach, skipping stones, floating on rafts, painting beach stones, and building teepees from fallen branches. As an adult, I appreciate getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and entertaining friends and their kids just like I remember from those days as a child.

Comfortable and Complete Lake Erie Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a lovely week in the Little Red Lake House. Every convenience was available (including linens and towels), we essentially only needed to bring our personal items and food. Quiet location with a private beach (not sandy while we were there, although I understand the shoreline changes often due to weather conditions, etc.). We found beautiful beach glass and some amazing rocks to bring home. We spent many hours in our beach chairs watching the ever-changing lake and taking in stunning sunsets. Loved the privacy and the like-home atmosphere. Discovered several new favorite restaurants and enjoyed driving through the vineyards that line the local highways. These is definitely a come-back-to destination!
