Sunset Beach is a natural Great Lakes shoreline that changes with the weather. We have many beach stones, driftwood, sand and beach glass. Sorry, we do not have palm trees, coconuts or white sand. Sunset Beach is a great place to relax, celebrate all occasions, swim, walk the beach, fish, kayak, water sports, enjoy a camp fire, and treasure hunt for beach glass or other flotsam and jetsam.

Freeport Beach, the public beach next to us, does get sand replenishment and grooming. Little ones will enjoy the playground at Freeport Beach. Older kids and adults can enjoy the sand volleyball courts there. In the summer season, Freeport Beach offers a lifeguard.

Guests with limited mobility can enjoy the lake views from the home and decks. Two decks are partially shaded. The beach requires good mobility for access, as the surface is uneven with scattered driftwood, beach stones, etc. Access to the adjacent Freeport Beach requires crossing 16 Mile Creek which is normally ankle to calf deep at the mouth of the creek, but can be deeper with rain. Driving distance to Freeport Beach for those who want to bypass the creek is about half a mile. Walking distance to Freeport Beach is much closer.


- Lake Erie Wine Trail: We are located on the Lake Erie Wine Trail. 26 wineries make up the complete wine trail. Wineries are open YEAR ROUND and close only on major holidays. Along the wine trail we have many artisans, galleries, antique shops and restaurants. Winery Tours make for a great ladies getaway, classy bachelorette trip, or couples getaway.

Visit during a wine related event or festival, or choose a slower time such as winter or spring to get more personal attention and learning from the winemakers themselves. If you visit during a slower time, call ahead to book a special small group session with a winemaker for a look behind the scenes. A private winery tour would be a nice way to celebrate a special occasion. A special dinner or gathering at a winery is a nice idea for a rehearsal dinner, shower, engagement party.

- Our ladies groups also enjoy shopping, wine tasting, Bella Day Spa, Double DAB Horse Riding Trails, and Presque Isle Casino.

- World Class Fishing: Lake Erie area is known for world class fishing including walleye, perch, bass, lake trout, and steelhead. We can recommend Charters or discuss parking for your boat. 16 Mile Creek is about 40 feet from this house. 20 Mile is about 3-4 miles from this house. Steelhead season typically runs from October through March, but creeks can and do freeze over for the latter part of the season.

- Sunsets: Watching the sun set each night into the lake is a beautiful thing and a local tradition. You have a direct and open view of the sunset at lake level at this home. If you watch closely you may catch a green flash!

- Nearby: We have a nice variety of restaurants nearby, including the Freeport Restaurant & Tavern, and Johnny B's,. The Cork 1794 Restaurant is another newer, upscale restaurant just 3 miles away. A local pub with great food is Plummer's just a few miles east across the N.Y. border. A local fave for coffee/lunch/hanging out is The Boston Bean Café – a cool space with WiFi. Presque Isle Winery has a fun food menu to go along with wine tasting. South Shore Wine Co has a cafe open mid-June to mid-October. For 18-holes of golf, we recommend Green Meadows Golf Course (5 miles).

- Daytrips? We are a short drive to Chautauqua Lake, Bemus Point, Findley Lake, Peek-n-Peak Golf & Ski Resort - and new Mountaineering and Zipline Courses, Erie, Presque Isle State Park as well as Presque Isle Downs & Casino, Splash Lagoon Water Park, Waldameer Amusement Park, Malls (Millcreek, Galleria, Grove City). Niagra Falls is another great day trip for family memories. For unique family adventures, we recommend the new mountaineering course and zip lines at Peek 'n Peak Resort in Clymer NY, the Horse Riding Trails at Double DAB in Ripley NY, and the Scallywags Pirate Ship in Erie.


- Our location is excellent for water sports. If you are looking for a place to kayak, canoe or windsurf, bring your small craft and launch from the beach.

- Larger boats and jet skis can be launched from the North East Marina just 2 miles away and anchored during the day in front of the home.

- For beach sports, try sand volleyball at the adjacent Freeport Beach sand courts - just a short walk.


Whether relaxing with sunset viewing, sunbathing, winery tours, shoreline walks, or lake swimming, and sea glass finding, everyone in your group will be entertained at this lakefront location.
