Thanks so much for sharing your cottage with us. It gave us a much needed break from day to day. The house was roomy and home like. Our daughter enjoyed the fishing..Agian thank you for a much needed break with a beautiful view.
The cottage was very roomy and clean. We were 8 people for part of our stay and felt very comfortable. Lots of fans and air conditioners to accommodate the weather. Great deck to enjoy the beautiful bay, sunsets and lots of bald eagles flying overhead. Close to lots of amusement park and attractions. Thanks for the great vacation!
The house contained everything we needed for our stay. Our host was extremely nice and accommodating. Quite area on the Sandusky Bay. Great area for fishing.
We enjoyed our week spent at this property. We had plenty of room for 2 couples and a 3 year old. The owner was very accomodating and moved the extra bed that our 3 year old slept in so that it was close to our bedroom.
We like to do lots of our own cooking. Next time I would bring along our large teflon skillet and 1 sharp knife from home to make things a little easier. Otherwise the kitchen was nice to work in.
The description was accurate and property well-maintained. We enjoyed visiting several area attractions such as Kalihari Water Park, East Harbor State Park, Mon Ami winery and restaurant, downtown Fremont, Lakeside, and Marblehead area.
Had a good time here. Relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle. Close to Cedar Point and Sundusky (approx 15 to 20 minute drive). Owners of the house were friendly and the gentleman even looked like Santa Claus!!
I enjoyed myself for the time that we were there which was from October 28th though October 31st. The owner is a very nice gentleman and presented us with wood for the fireplace that is there. The location is a quiet location so if you need to catch up on sleep, this is the best place for that. The house is right behind the lake which is an excellent lake with a great view. Got a chance to see an eagle early in the morning. Approximately 15 minutes away from Sandusky, Cedar Point, Great Wolf Lodge and Kalahari.
Our family has rented this property for the past four summers. It has become an addiction. It is absolutely perfect for a family vacation. The first year we spent most of our time fishing right out the back door with a day trip to Cedarpoint which is only 20 minutes from the house. The past 3 years we have been exploring area Fleamarkets as well as The Lake Erie Islands and wineries. The owner's are wonderful, the location is private and the fishing is awesome. The home is large and clean. We travel with 4 adults and 2 children and there is plenty of privacy in the home. It is our new home away from home. We cook most of our meals in the large kitchen to save money for other vacation fun. There is a very large dining area for family meals or this year we chose to eat out on the large deck which includes a large table with umbrella and several chairs. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffemaker, canopener and toaster. We spend evenings together in the large living room playing games or watching movies. The house also includes a laundry room with washer and dryer. There is a screened-in rear deck which is great for morning coffee. The large front lawn is nice for yard games and includes a Fire Ring for evening fires and smores. Port Clinton is 15 minutes away and has several restaurants, grocery and department stores, an awesome fruit and vegetable market, large cheese store, ice cream shop, go kart and mini golf and gas stations. The list goes on and on. Overall you cannot go wrong renting this home for a wonderful family vacation. We're hoping to go back for a 5th year. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the sunsets. SPECTACULAR!
