AVALON ON THE BAY WATERFRONT COTTAGE, CEDAR POINT, LAKE ERIE, PUT-N-BAY, ISLANDS

Marblehead Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 8 (max.) Waterfront Rental- Marblehead, Ohio USA

Looking for a quiet, peaceful and relaxing family vacation or, maybe a romantic getaway? Look no further. With beautiful old fashioned knotty pine walls, hardwood floors and a brick enclosed 23-foot sun-room facing the bay, from which to enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, this air conditioned cottage home is just what you have been looking for.

Located on beautiful Sandusky Bay (Lake Erie) in historic Marblehead, Ohio, this quaint waterfront cottage/home is located directly on the water, not down the street from the water. You can enjoy endless sunny days of swimming and sunbathing on your private beach, literally outside your front door.

Enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner outside on your private waterside patio. The gas grill and picnic table await you. Or stay inside and utilize the full kitchen, dining and living area. You might even want to dine at one of the many fine restaurants in the area.

Spend a day at Cedar Point, Castaway Bay, Kalahari Water Parks, Monsoon Lagoon, African Safari Wildlife Park, Put-n-Bay, Kelleys Island and more, just minutes from the cottage. Enjoy browsing the many craft and gift shops throughout historic downtown Marblehead. You can even watch Cedar Point fireworks every night, from your front door.

Have a boat, bring it along. A 25-foot dock/slip is available, just outside the cottage, for your convenience and pleasure. An easy access boat launch is just minutes from your cottage. Cruise over to Cedar Point, Kelly's Island, and Put-n-Bay. Walk on a sand bar in the middle of Sandusky Bay. Enjoy water skiing, parasailing, and tubing.

Love to fish? Set out on Lake Erie for a day of the best walleye fishing in the country not to mention the great perch and bass fishing. If you feel Lake Erie is too rough, you can always turn around and fish in the Bay. We are that close to the lake. Small-mouth and large-mouth bass are plentiful along the rocky shoreline and throughout the bay. Or, fish right outside your front door on your own private pier or right from your waterside patio. After your fishing outing, clean your fish on the fish-cleaning table provided outside the cabin, or have them professionally cleaned.

Just want to go for a boat ride? Boat rides, tours, and fishing excursions are available with pick-up and drop-off right from your front door.

Why spend the same amount of money or more money for a motel room or rooms when you can stay in a waterfront cottage/home. The cottage features a private beach right outside the cottage, fishing from the waterside patio or from the jetty right outside the cottage and a big shady waterside Maple tree to sit and enjoy the view and warm breezes. Safe and secure boat dockage is available right outside the cottage (additional charge) with trailer parking alongside. Fishing trips and boat tours available right from the cottage.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
We love this place. Plenty of room to stash all of our gear, exceptionally clean, bright and airy. Lots of windows to let the breeze in, beautiful views, always something to watch, whether it's boats or nature. Lots of birds, e spotted a bald eagle a couple of times, and saw an owl a couple of evenings. Great place to look at the stars at night. And the fishing is great right off the jetty. Jim and Diana are so nice, willing to answer all our questions, and the neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. We hope to return again soon!

Pictures Say It All

  • 5 of 5
This was an absolute treat for our family's annual vaction to the lake. The view is true to the pictures on this page. The fishing in the chanel was great for are 2 boys. Seemed like every morning they was right there in the chanel fishing, hollaring for me to get out of bed to see the large bass or catfish they had caught.
Even the in-laws enjoyed the views of this wonderful cabin on the lake. We have found the cabin which we plan to visit each year. The cabin housed all 8 of us with no problem. Jim and Diane you will be seeing us at lest once a year for now on.

A wonderful quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time here at this lovely cottage. Cottage is roomy, plenty of space for all of our 'gear'. We especially loved the sunroom, windows for catching the breezes and enjoying the views. The kitchen was more like a 'real home' kitchen, plenty of counter space, cabinets, lots of pots, pans, dishes, and even a dishwasher! Great view over the kitchen sink. The nicest part about the cottage was the cleanliness, it has obviously been well taken care of by Jim and Diana, and it definitely shows.
The neighborhood was great, friendly people, and quiet! We sleep with our windows open and we never heard the neighbors, parties, or boats, just the gentle slapping of the water along the channel.
The outside of the cottage is wonderful, easy access to the docks, Jim was especially helpful to us with our dock, even adding a step down for us. Fishing was great off the jetty. We even caught two 26" catfish right out our door.
We can't say enough about the helpfulness and friendliness of Jim and Diana. They are just great people. We hope to return next year!

One of my most memorable and relaxing vacations!

  • 5 of 5
We had seven in our group, including a 3 year old and a 6 year old. I enjoyed this vacation more than most simply because it was the most relaxing one I have ever been on- including cruises. Being able to take my two young girls out to the private beach every day was priceless. I was able to sit and watch them play in the water without fear, because the beach is graded and walkable several yards into the lake. In the evenings we would all make dinner, fish, swim and watch the fireworks that go off every night at Cedar Point at 10pm (You can see them from the jetty really well) We enjoyed meeting Jim and Diane, and our children enjoyed playing with their grandchildren very much- so much that we MUST come back next year to catch up with them! This was the first time I have had a vacation that I was truly sorry to see end.Thank you Jim and Diane for a most enjoyable family vaca! Hope to see you next year!

Ideal access to Bay and Lake Erie for fishing

  • 5 of 5
Our five-person family-oriented crew, from IN, KY, MI, ID and GA, spend a week fishing each May. We've fished as far as north as Lac Gueguen near Val-d'Or, Quebec, Canada and as far south as Lake Douglas in Tennessee and Avalon on the Bay proved to be among the top 5 places we've rented! The ease of access to Lake Erie from the house is incredible...quick to return to the bay/house in inclement weather. The private slip behind the house IS IDEAL as we take alot onto and off of the boat each morning and evening. The fishing off the jetty was fruitful for bass. Jim was very gracious with his fishing tips and tricks and attentive to all of our other questions! It was nice knowing Jim was two houses down, should anything go awry. But since the condition of the cottage was impeccable, there wasn't much concern that something would go wrong. The cottage was as depicted in the pictures. What isn't shown is a 13" color CRT TV; this didn't bother us though since we played cards and games in the sunroom when we weren't out fishing. One bedroom has one Double bed; it would be nice if it were a queen or king-sized bed...to fit two people more easily. The hot water heater is on the small side...only one of us were able to shower normally before it ran out; or two, if we turned the water off in between rinses. We created a 'shower schedule' or sorts by week's end. All-in-all our experience was most pleasant and relaxing. I am so thankful Jim & Diana keep this gem on the rental market...we will be back for more Walleye fishing! Thanks from the Fishin' Five!

Perfect family vacation.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed the last week of June 2011 and it was perfect for our family (3 boys). The location of the cottage is centrally located to many attractions and water activities. While we were there, we visited Put-in-Bay (Adventure Bay is a must with kids) and Cedar Point. The cottage is very clean and spacious with all the amenties you need. The sunroom has an incredible view. Although there is a very small beach area in front of the property, we went to the East Harbor State Park Beach. We rented a boat from Clemons and took the kids skiing and tubing. It was a very fun vacation and the property owner, Jim, was a great host. You may see him on Shark Tank some day.
