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.

An Absolutely Beautiful Home with Your Own Private Beach on Sandusky Bay!!!

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.

House was light, clean, comfortable and well outfitted. Water views from great room and two bedrooms! Beach had been cleaned and was super quiet. Wonderful to eat on patio with nice table and chairs and umbrellas and wonderful water view. Teenagers enjoyed game system in rec room. Adults enjoyed that it cannot be heard from great room! Great service--one minor mechanical problem dealt with quickly after one phone call to Mike. Convenient (by car) to Port Clinton, Catawba and Marblehead.

Great Family Vacation

My extended family spent a week at the Bay House this July and it was perfect. The caboose was a huge hit with the kids (and adults) and the house was well thought-out with everything the families needed. We spent the evenings in the game room/garage playing games and enjoying each other's company. The Bay is beautiful. We saw a bald eagle, deer, bunnies, herons, a ground hog and many robins. I can easily recommend the Bay House as a great family vacation.

The week of July 20-27, we vacationed at the Bay House, this is our second year we have stayed here.,and truly enjoyed it again. Many attractions, restaurants within a short drive, the weather for the most part cooperated during the stay. In the evening sitting on the patio with a scenic view of Sandusky Bay is great! I recommend this vacation retreat. Thanks to the owners for letting us share their vacation home.

Family Vacation

We enjoyed a family vacation at the Bay House in mid June – six adults and 4 girls aged 19 – 8. We found the house very well equipped. There was no owner’s closet, so we assumed anything the owners wanted or used was available to us! The extra refrigerator was great as were the table and chairs in the screened garage. Nice weather we ate on the beach front patio, less than perfect weather we ate in the garage. The stranger on the beach turned out to be the young man hired to groom the beach. We rented a pontoon and cruised the Bay and Lake areas. Tubing, swimming, s’mores on the beach, bean bag games, Cedar Point, African Safari Park and relaxing made the week go too fast. It was a great time and would recommend this house.
