Golden Gate Cottage sits right on Lake Erie just a few feet from the water, with a view of the water from every room in the house. It is surrounded by a beautiful lawn and grounds with plenty of privacy and its own sandy beach.

Especially in the summer Golden Gate is great for families with our beach right next to the house, the playground across the street, the hot tub on the patio and the pool table in the garage! But, off-season---it it a fabulous place for 'Girlfriend Getaways'! I have put luxury linens on the beds, soft, wonderful towels and there are three king bedrooms, one queen and one double and a pullout in the living area.

We take great pride in keeping Golden Gate immaculately clean and in good repair. We are not an inpersonal management company but are very hands-on owners who want your stay with us to be full of blessings. Golden Gate is quaintly furnished with antiques, leather furniture and my own special collections. At the front of the house is a large patio with furniture facing the lake. Inside, a sunroom across the front of the house gives spectacular views,it has a large dining table in it so you can enjoy the lake whatever the weather is,whenever you eat. We like the kitchen to be fully equipped for any occasion and enjoy gazing at the water as we cook!

We are continually updating and adding to Golden Gate. This past year we added a second floor lakefront balcony and some new windows to enhance Golden Gate's fabulous view. This year we have just completed a new kitchen!! We have future plans for Golden Gate, but we also like to keep the essence of it the same---so that if you come back year after year, it feels familiar and comfortable. Like 'Grandma's house' (on the lake)! It is our privlege to own this cottage and to share it with you!

Many guests have spent hours on the beach during the day and then enjoyed a bonfire at night. Golden Gate is the kind of place that you can spend your whole vacation in just relaxing and 'vegging out' as we do or you can easily find fun and exciting things to do within a 30 min. drive. Cedar Point amusement park, the ferries to Put-in-Bay and Kelley's island, Lakeside---Lake Erie's Chautauqua and the Marblehead lighthouse are close by.

For those of you into nature and birding, our area was part of the 'Great Black Swamp' and we are at the crossroads of two major migratory paths. The variety of birds and waterfowl is wonderful to see! Magee Marsh with it's nature programs and boardwalks etc. through the marshes is close by. We enjoy putting you in touch with what's available in our area and helping you have the best possible time at Golden Gate!

About Marla Rickloff

I am semi-retired, and my husband and I love to spend time on Lake Erie in the summer with our family and friends.

Marla Rickloff purchased this house in 2000

Why Marla Rickloff chose Port Clinton

I fell in love with Golden Gate Cottage the first time I saw it! It is in my mind, a 'Grandma' cottage. Sweet bungalow style, wood floors, very cottagey, and the views of Lake Erie are awesome! We love this location, because it is quiet, lots of birds, and yet it is close to the Lake Erie islands, Port Clinton and Lakeside, and Cedar Point!

What makes this house unique

Hanging out by the lake on the patio; reading and cooking!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Marla,

Thanks again! This is our 4th straight year coming here and it has been just as great as the 1st time. J. and N. are now 6 years old and they love it here. Golden Gate has EVERYTHING for an awesome vacation. Thanks again for opening your home to us. We love the red paint you used for Golden Gate and new door you added off from the garage. See ya' next summer!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Had a wonderful family vacation. House was beautiful and cozy and had the most gorgeous views! Loved our mornings and nights in the adirondack chairs looking out at the lake. The private beach was perfect for the kids. Can't wait to plan our next stay here!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had 3 generations there for a week and everyone from the 4 year old to the 62 year old had a wonderful time. It was relaxing. All the comforts of home were provided. Everything looked exactly like the pictures.The house was clean and well-stocked. We felt at home. The sunrises and sunsets were awe inspiring. Watching a storm roll across Lake Erie from the comforts of the sun porch was an experience none of us will ever forget. I highly recommend this home! The whole family had a blast at the African Safari!

Golden Gate has been a beautiful safe haven for our family. A time to reconnect, to pray, to love, to play, to rest, to nourish family ties. The accomodations are top notch, the view is fabulous and the lake as close as you want her to be. We love the lapping waters, the starry nights, the beach fires, java on the patio watching the sunrise. Golden Gate is all she proclaims to be and more. We will be back :)

I almost didn't want to give a review for Golden Gate Cottage, simply because, the more excellent and 5 star reviews it gets, the harder its going to be to make future reservations because it will always be booked up! But... as much as I did not want to share this true gem, I will give it what it truly deserves... a 5 star review!
The owners, Herb & Marla,have really done a spectacular job on this house. It is so roomy and comfortable and the views are so spectacular. My husband and I stayed in one of the king rooms that faced the lake. At night we would leave the sliding door open so we could listen to the waves lap the beach as they lulled us to sleep. The sandy beach next to the house was nice and private and in the evenings, we would build a nice bonfire for our group to enjoy.
The house boasted all the comforts of being at home. Our party enjoyed cooking in the top notch kitchen and gathering in the enclosed sunporch to enjoy the fruits of our labor. I can't possibly think of anything this house lacks... the Rickloff's have thought of everything! Thank you for a truly enjoyable and relaxing experience and we certainly will be staying again next year!

5 couples have spent a fall weekend here for two years and we're returning next year. I've stayed in hotels in the US and in Europe and none come close to the quality of the beds, linens and amenities of the cottage. It's quiet. pretty and very cozy. The new kitchen is great! Thank you, Marla, for sharing your space with us!
