UNBEATABLE BEACHFRONT LOCATION. NEXT TO FREEPORT BEACH & PARK.

Erie House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is not just a house with a lake view... it's a house on the beach at an unbeatable location. This is the only lakefront rental home in North East that is on the beach without a walk down stairs or a hill. The beach doesn't get any closer or easier than here. See our photos for new 2013 decor. Booking now: spring bachelorette, ladies getaways or fishing groups, summer family and friend meet-ups and fall getaways.

The Setting...

- lake level on a private beach (for neighborhood residents and guests only)

- panoramic views of the lake

- lakeviews from almost every room in the house

- sights, sounds and fresh breezes of lake living experienced here

- a great setting for memory-making with family or friends

The 2013 Updates...

- We now have central AIR CONDITIONING! The exterior has been painted in a beautiful sage color. Interior updates include new colors with fresh paint in all rooms paired with new nautical fabrics. A second tv has been added in a bedroom.

Living the Lake Life...

- Our location is excellent for water sports. If you are looking for a place to kayak, windsurf, kiteboard, or paddle board, bring your small craft and launch from the beach.

- Larger boats and jet skis can be launched from the North East Marina just 2 miles away and anchored during the day in front of the home.

- For beach sports, try volleyball at the adjacent Freeport Beach sand courts - just a short walk.

Nearby Attractions...

- Two of the more popular activities in the area include fishing and winery tours. You can enjoy all seasons of the year here and find something for everyone in your group. We are short drive to Chautauqua Lake, Peek-n-Peak, Erie, Presque Isle State Park as well as Presque Isle Downs & Casino, Splash Lagoon Water Park, Waldameer Amusement Park, Malls (Millcreek, Galleria, Grove City), Spas (Bella, Beauty & Beast). We have great casual dining and pubs for all palates. Book a fishing charter or drive the Seaway Trail and enjoy a ride along the shores of Lake Erie. There are also hiking/biking trails, farmers markets, and antique shops. Our close proximity to NY and OH offer many additional adventures. Tour the local Amish country and shops while you are here.

World Class Fishing awaits you on Lake Erie and nearby creeks.

Fishermen: This home is located right next to the mouth of 16 Mile Creek. We are just a few steps to great stream fishing or mouth of the lake fishing. We are in Steelhead Alley. No need to compete with hordes of fishermen at Elk or Walnut Creek. Fish the creeks or call for my Charter recommendations.

Local wineries are open year round (excluding major holidays) for tours, tasting and events related to the wineries and harvests. My personal recommendation is to check out the Barjo Bons wine club monthly events at Courtyard winery!

Visit during a wine related event or festival, or choose a slower time such as winter or spring to get more personal attention and learning from the winemakers themselves. Would you like to book a special small group session with a vintner? A private tour to celebrate a special occasion? A special dinner or gathering for rehearsal dinner? Shower? Bachelorette? Ask me. I can make recommendations.

This is the only vacation rental in the Sunset Beach cottage neighborhood.

-- Lake views from every room in the house

-- At lake level -- not on a cliff/bluff.

-- Typical Great Lakes shoreline. Changes with the weather. Ungroomed. No sand replenishment at Sunset Beach. Sorry, no palm trees or coconuts :) -- but a great place to swim, walk the beach and treasure hunt. Freeport Beach, adjacent to us, does get sand replenishment and grooming.

Lake Erie, the shallowest of the Great Lakes, warms up fast in the summer. Our beach water quality is measured bi-weekly in summers and passed all water tests in 2012 (the latest year for data). Freeport is the ONLY public beach in Pennsylvania to have passed 100% of water quality tests in 2012.

-- Close enough to hear the surf 24/7, feel the breezes, and take in the freshness of the lake breezes.

-- Direct access to an ever-changing, natural Lake Erie shoreline with sand, stones, driftwood and whatever treasures Lake Erie delivers to us.

-- Front row location at Sunset Beach, perfect for sunset views.

-- 16 Mile Creek, a popular fishing creek separates Sunset Beach from Freeport Beach. Cross the Creek at the shallow end near the Lake to get to Freeport Beach.

-- Freeport Beach offers a playground, lifeguard (seasonal), sand volleyball courts and snack shack (seasonal).

-- Nestled in a quaint, cottage community.

The HOME...

-- 3 bedroom and 2 baths

-- First floor bedroom and first floor bath

-- 2 Queen beds, 2 twin beds, 2 foldaway twin beds, 1 Queen sized air mattress. Comfy for six people, but sleeps up to eight!

-- Second floor balcony spans the beach side of the home and is accessed by two upstairs bedrooms. Think morning coffee, evening cocktails, sunset viewing.

-- First floor patio.

-- Front deck...think reading, relaxing, your own space!

Something for everyone...

Whether relaxing with sunset viewing, sunbathing, winery tours, and shoreline walks, or lake swimming, body surfing, skipping stones, treasure hunting, and sea glass finding, everyone in your group will be entertained at this lakefront location.

Guests with limited mobility can enjoy the lake views from the home and decks. The beach requires good mobility for access. Access to the adjacent Freeport Beach requires crossing 16 Mile Creek which is normally ankle to calf deep at the lakefront, but can be deeper when we have rain. Driving distance to Freeport Beach for those who want to bypass the creek is one mile.

It's not unusual to see bald eagles fly over the lake hunting for fish and return to their nests nearby.

North East, PA is Erie's Wine Country, a refreshing small-town getaway from busy lives. Known for its quaint downtown, miles of vineyards and beaches, many wineries, fruit/vegetable farms, and a growing artist community -- this is the good life. Relax and enjoy the lakefront. Grill out and eat at your picnic table. If you want to go out for meals, there are a number of family friendly restaurants closeby (Freeport Restaurant is 0.4 miles, town is just 2.5 miles with Boston Bean Cafe, the new Rizzo's on the Park, Johnny B's, two pizza places). Explore local wineries, enjoy a massage at Bella Day Spa, sightsee, take a horse trail ride, treat your family to local produce -- pick-your-own options available or buy from one of many local farm stands. Downtown North East shopping district now features our new Grape Country Marketplace where you can shop for locally made products and taste wine from 4 wineries.

Erie, Pennsylvania -- with Presque Isle State Park, Waldameer Water & Amusement Park, Erie Zoo, Splash Lagoon, the Tom Ridge Environmental Center and Presque Isle Downs & Casino -- is a 20-35 minute drive depending on destination. New York State, also closeby, offers Chatauqua Institution, Peek 'n Peak Ski/Golf/Spa, Panama Rocks. A bit farther, Niagara Fall is about 2 hours, doable as a daytrip.

This is a nice family setting -- a quiet residential, family neighborhood built around enjoyment of the lake and creek... a nice place to relax and unwind, but close to town for errands, exploring or a indulging at Bella Day Spa or a winery (two wineries within 1.5 miles, many more locally).

Upcoming Local Events: see event listing at www.nechamber.org and check back frequently.

Start a tradition! Book your beach vacation, fall winery escape or girlfriend getaway today!

We are happy to make recos or suggestions for your vacation planning. We are local. Ask us!

Hello, I am Megan, a lifelong resident of North East, PA. I have grown up along the shores of Lake Erie and continue to reside in this area. My family has owned property on Sunset Beach for several generations over many decades. Thank you for taking the time to view my bio and my Sunset Beach House.

Words alone cannot accurately describe the hidden beauty of this unique property. My family and I have many fond memories at this home. My goal is to provide a quality coastal home for other families or friends to enjoy. I am a local owner/operator with a committed focus on customer service and satisfaction. I am just a phone call away should you need anything during the course of your stay.

A little bit about myself and my interests include: family, traveling, horses, hunting, fishing, swimming, kayaking, biking, gardening, growing pumpkins and Indian corn.

This beach has special meaning, even though I have traveled a great deal to many tropical beaches. Lake Erie is a constant source of natural beauty as it ebbs and flows with the seasons, weather, fish and wildlife. The sunsets are a sight to behold as they bring a slice of heavenly serenity across the horizon line of the lake. I have many, many great family memories here and I trust you and your family will also have fond memories upon staying here also. This is a wonderful private neighborhood with easy beach access.

I purchased this property because of the location on the beach and the incredible views. The panoramic views are a result from being located on beach point at lake level. When I am here, I feel the peaceful tranquility of lake... through the beautiful sights of nature, sunsets, calming sounds of the waves, and cooling breezes. This is a wonderful spot for swimming, kayaking, beach combing, fishing and birdwatching. We have eagles and many other bird species to watch, along with deer that come to the lake to drink.

If you love true lake living you will indeed love this property. This property is like fine wine, it gets better with age. I have recently done extensive remodeling to both the interior and exterior to enhance all of the appointments of this luxury beach house. Location plus luxury make this a win-win beach house rental in all seasons.

Sunset viewing from our home is a daily activity.

The sunsets are world class and panoramic. We eat all summer meals outside at our picnic table on the beach, weather permitting. We enjoy our locally grown produce because they taste better when you buy them freshly picked at the farm stand less than a mile away! We have many fresh farm markets to choose from. We like to sleep outdoors on the deck or beach. Life at this beach includes beach treasure hunting (there's more to find when the beach is private), swimming, sunbathing, and not having to pack a bag to go to the beach.

Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 15, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We honestly wish we could not tell the truth and give this home a bad review just to keep this getaway secret to ourselves……. just to make sure it’s available next time we need a relaxing vacation.
Our trip involved a small family reunion and we couldn’t have been more pleased.
From visiting the wineries (5 the first day and 4 the next and never being more than 3-4 miles from the house) to just kicking back and “People Watching” from the decks or inside the home through the wall to wall picture windows…. it couldn’t have been more enjoyable (especially watching the fisherman who were working the mouth of sixteen mile creek as the fish jumped out of the lake behind them!)
This is truly a remarkable home and fits the needs of any vacation. Being it fishing with your buds, beaching with the family, or just visiting the wineries with close friends, you couldn’t ask for a more perfect rental.

And don't forget to read the guest book starting at the beginning. Around the first July in the book there is a really funny entry!

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your vacation reflections and time with us in our beach house. It really is a hidden treasure and I am glad you were able to experience the beauty of Lake Erie and the local wineries. We never tire of watching the fishermen or the fish jumping out!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Sunset Beach. The house was lovely: clean and comfortable. We were sad to leave on Monday. I would definitely stay again and recommend to friends and family looking for a relaxing get away. Oh and definitely eat at the Freeport Restaurant - great food :-)

Perfect Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 1, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We couldn't have picked a more perfect location and weekend! We picked this property very randomly, for a getaway girls' weekend. I don't feel the pictures of the town or the property do it justice. It was so lovely on the water. We watched the sunsets, sat by the fire, and watched the fishermen. We left the windows open at night to listen to the water. We came when the grape vines were full and there was a wine festival! Our contact person was so incredibly helpful. The home was supplied with everything we needed. The neighbors were very kind. We walked to the restaurant down the street and loved that too. We were so pleased with our stay. We even saw a meteor fly over head while we sat around the fire pit!

Owner's Response: The smell of the grapes in the fall is the most wonderful smell of all. It's something you have to experience as words cannot capture this marvelous harvest sensation. Thank you for sharing your vacation reflections and time in our beach house.

beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We had 5 adults and one small child in this beach house and it was very comfortable. The location is perfect--close to wineries, downtown North East, Freeport Beach, Erie. The windows across the back of the home, as well as the two decks (up and down) gave perfect views of the beautiful sunsets. The owners supplied everything we would need. We have two suggestions. The home cannot easily accommodate a long stay by a handicapped individual but it would be nice to have a ramp for a visitor using a walker or wheelchair. Also, the downstairs bedroom gets warm and keeping the doors open there helps somewhat. (Maybe a portable fan would help as well.) It would have been nice to be able to open more windows and enjoy the breezes from the lake. Overall this property is very nice and we enjoyed our stay.

Best of both worlds... this home is located on Sunset Beach and just a short walk to the public Freeport Beach & Halli Reid Park which has playground, lifeguard and snack shack available seasonally. Come and see why this beach is called Sunset Beach. You will love our sunset views from both inside and outside the home. This home is uniquely situated at lake level.... no stairs, no cliff. Lake level also means cooling lake breezes.
