We are a middle-aged married couple with four children (two girls/two boys). Our girls are married and we have five grandchildren.
Michael Rath purchased this house in 2006
We bought this house house to stay engaged with our children and so we can vacation together. We all live in the greater Cleveland area but as they got older it was harder to get together. This house works out perfectly. We let everyone know when we will be there and everyone comes up when they can.
We think you will love every minute. From sunrise over Sandusky Bay until you see the moon reflecting off the water. The views are breathtaking. We think you will also love the beach, as we have one of the few private beaches in the whole area. Ours is just steps away from the patio! Many of our guests really love just sitting quietly and enjoying the beach and the views. The real caboose gives our house something unique and adds great personality while serving as a comfortable spot for up to four people.
This is our 4th year at this location. We could not be happier! The house is always clean and the caboose now has a half bath for the snorers?? The beach is great. We go for a "girls getaway". But this would be good for a family get together also.
Can't say enough good things about the place, we will be back next years as always!!
We are a party of 8 adults - Mom, Dad, 3 adult children with their spouses - so with the caboose the number of bedrooms was perfect. Each young couple took a turn in the caboose.
We really enjoyed being able to hear the water from the house, walking down by the bay, having a fire on the beach, playing games in the game room, and sitting around in the large living room. Each couple prepared some of the food and the kitchen had all the necessary pots, pans, utensils, etc.
We used the house as a hub for the various activities like Cedar Point, Boating out to Kelley Island (Clemons Boats had good rentals), Jet Ski Rental (Sawmill Resort), and the African Safari Wildlife Park.
The kids enjoyed the Wii and PS3 also (they took extra controllers).
Our family just returned from one of the best vacations we have ever had! We stayed at the Bay House with 5 of our grandchildren, (ages 1 through 16) and my parents (in their mid-70's). Everyone had a fantastic time which isn't easy to accomplish with such a variety of ages. The Bay House had plenty of room for everyone to stay comfortably and so many nice areas to gather and visit. We were attracted to this location because of the private beach, which is absolutely beautiful, but in the end we didn't spend much time there because of the unusually cold weather. When we heard about this arctic front in mid-July, we were devastated, but with so many other things to enjoy at the house, we never missed a beat! Of course, we visited Cedar Point and for that, the weather was perfect. We also went to Deer Park which was so enjoyable...the kids loved it!! The guys in the group charted a fishing trip with ANJ Charters and had such a great successful day, (92 yellow perch!) they went out a second day! The location of your home was perfect for everything we had planned to do and so convenient to stores and town and yet, we had such privacy that it was comparable to being out in the country. We couldn't believe our week had come to such a quick end; even our 2 year old grandson cried as we pulled out of the driveway, saying "No, no, stay here!" When a child that young is sadden by the end of a vacation, you know it has been a memorable one! Thank you for your hospitality and also for working with us to allow an early drop off of our luggage. We hope to be back in the future and everyone agrees, we would want to come back to the Bay House! We truly appreciate everything you provided to make our family gathering so enjoyable!
This was the perfect vacation getaway! It had everything we needed to cook our own meals and enjoy our time together as a family! The caboose was unique and quite a hit with the kids! Loved being able to see the water through the multiple sliding glass doors!
Spectacular location and facilities. My wife and I, Three adult children and 2 young grandchildren had plenty of room and a great time.
This beautiful home located right on Sandusky Bay was a dream vacation for our family. The house was meticulously maintained with everything you needed right there for you. The train caboose was a great extra space that my grand kids loved. I've never stayed anywhere where I had my own private beach and that was a huge hit with my family, swimming, boating and fishing right in your backyard! Don't miss out on renting this great home for your next family vacation you'll cherish the memories for many years to come.
