Sandusky House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms_3 Baths, Large Entertainment Patio_Den_Utility Room

The GLASS HOUSE was designed by an assocaite of Frank Lloyd Wright (FLW) and was built in 1960. It is a UNIQUE example of his classic architecture and use of 'core' living space. The large picture windows across the front and rear allow an unobstructed view of the lake and the bay. The mahogonay wood walls and interior finish is an exceptional example of FLW's style and simplicity. It is classic FLW Style with Cedar Ceilings and large glass picture windows in the front and in the rear of the living area. The front deck provides a panoramic view of the lake with a relaxing area to enjoy the moment.

Recent improvements include: Flat Screen TV with sound system, DVR-TV, DVD, VCR, NetFlix and BLU-RAY Player. A small kitchen and refrigerator were added to the utility room for entertaining on the brick patio. 3 Picnic tables and patio furniture allow the full use of the outside rear yard and ample areas for children and games.

Two bedrooms are located on the upper floor along with an OPEN living area, kitchen, dining area and two decks. The Lower Level has two bedrooms and a sitting/office area with a second TV for more veersatility in entertainment. Internet is also provided without charge at the desk.

The bocce ball set is available for adults, as well as, croquet. Twelve (12) outdoor chairs, 3 picnic tables, and Three unbrellas are available for the outside fun. Beach toys are stored in the shed for use by kids.

About Donald Epler

The 'Glass House' was purchased by my family in 1960. It has been redecorated and upgraded over the years. The home fronts on Lake Erie and the back is on Sandusky Bay. A huge back yard for croquet, bocci ball, badminton, soccer, fishin in the bay, and a second beach with picnic table. The large brick patio and gas grille can accomodate all of your family.

Donald Epler purchased this house in 1960

Why Donald Epler chose Sandusky

My family bought the 'Glass House' on Cedar Point because it was close to Columbus, Ohio (2 hours drive) and easily reachable for all of our friends from Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, and Michigan.

What makes this house unique

The 'Glass House' is unique! The Front and back are completely Glass picture windows. The front view is of Lake Erie and the Back views the Sandusky Bay, large back yard, and places for children to play games. Beach toys, bocci ball, badminton, and beach chairs are on site. This year we installed a new sound system, dvd, dvr, speakers and more cable stations for guests. Windows in front and rear.

The Cedar Point Amusement Park is less than a mile to the West and the Lighthouse is visible at night along with the Park lights. Fireworks are on Saturday.

Ches' Francois_ is a 5 Star restaurant located in lovely downtown Vermillion which has exceptional dining on the Vermillion River.

HalloWeekends

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying here for HalloWeekends at Cedar Point with our extended family. The property is lovely and clean, the views beautiful, and the location very convenient. The house had everything we needed and we would love to come back in the summer to enjoy the beach.

Big Chill "4 day extravaganza"

Big Chill "4 day extravaganza"
  • 5 of 5
4 High School buddys & their wives had a blast. We only stayed 4 nights but we knew we wanted to do this again because of "The Glass House" offering. 2 couples drove from metro-Detroit, 1 from Indianapolis & 1 from Allentown, PA. We really enjoyed the house, Lake Erie was handy & excellent. So close to Cedar Point but we never went but we did eat perch most days. The reviews previous to mine are right on target but the main point of my review is this is perfect place for 4 couples. God bless your vacation.

Multi-family fun

  • 5 of 5
Two families meet every year for vacation...the location varies. This year we met in Sandusky to be on the beach and to be close to Cedar Point for the kids (teens). The Glass House was all that the description said it would be. It was great to have the bedrooms for the adults on a different floor from the rooms for the kids. And it was great to have a TV/VCR downstairs for the kids to get away from us! THe open kitchen/main room floor plan worked great for us. Lots of space to play games and lounge. Also really fun to play pingpong downstairs too. Bathrooms were updated and very clean. Kitchen was very well stocked. Owner really nice but we didn't need a thing while there. We didn't take advantage of the big lawn in the back yard but only because we spent so much time on the beach. The bay beach was a little gunky to swim (algae) but we did spend time in the lake. Great to have fires at night on the beach too! A road has to be crossed to get to the beach which is not a big deal with older kids. Certainly close enough to Cedar Point to walk but we did not..good thing because we were exhausted at the end of the day. Fun was had by all and the end of the week came way too soon.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My stay was all I hoped it would be. The house has such great views and with the two decks one can always find a comfortable outdoor spot to sit outside. The beach is great and I spent most of my time walking it as that was my main purpose in going. I awoke to beautiful sunrises which got me up and going early. The house is beautifully maintained and many items are provided for use on the beach which is really great. The owner is very, very helpful and friendly as were the neighbors. I hope to return!

Great Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit on Lake Erie and first time renting through VRBO. "The Glass House" is exactly as advertised and very clean. The owner sent a good operations list and suggestions for activities and restaurants. A bonus is the caretaker. We thank her for her guidance and hospitality. We give her 10 stars.
We traveled with our children and grands. The house had wonderful living, dining and sleeping spaces. There are beds for 8 and there were 11 of us at one point. Pushing the twin beds together worked very well for little ones. The beautiful back yard was so great for playing and relaxing. There was plenty in storage for the children's entertainment. We enjoyed s'mores around a small beach fire and had a bit of a swim in the bay. We brought lifejackets for peace of mind. The fabulous decks were not child-friendly. We couldn't trust the "monkeys" around those or the front lawn .... just made them "off-limits".
The location is lovely and so convenient to the Cedar Point parks. On 2 different days we made the easy drive to Port Clinton. Enjoyed the ferry to South Bass Island and a visit to Wildlife Safari Park. The drive-through safari was messy, but the little ones were fearless and squealed with delight.
We have always traveled to the ocean or Disney for family vacations. Our daughter suggested Cedar Point for fun and less time on the road. It turned out to be a wonderful idea. Although we had unusually hot temps the first of the week, the last of it was fabulous. When the "monkeys" are older we definitely want to bring them back.

THE GLASS HOUSE WAS DESIGNED BY AN ASSOCIATE OF FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT AND BUILT IN 1960. IT HAS ALL THE CHARM AND FEATURES OF HIS CLASSIC ARCHITECTURE WHICH MAKES THE MOST OF THE PANORAMIC VIEWS OF THE LAKE AND BAY. THREE BATHROOMS WERE COMPLETELY REDONE, BUT THE BASIC DESIGN OF THE HOUSE IS THE SAME. AN EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE OF FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT'S DESIGN WITH THE LIVING AREA ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

Notes:
The Glass House has water views on both sides. CEDAR POINT IS A SHORT WALK ON THE BEACH!! The views are exceptional from the front or back of the house. Cedar Point Amusement Park is less than a mile to the West. Walk to the 'Point' on the beach! Swim, fish, or visit the islands of Lake Erie by Ferry Boats in the area. Local charter fisherman are available for perch and walleye! Ferries to Kelly's Island, Put-in_Bay, and Middle Bass Island are minutes away. SO MUCH TO DO, SO LITTLE TIME! Visit Kalihari Water Park, or Great Bear Indoor Water Park!
