Erie House Rental Photos and Description

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

The Sunset Beach House is a rustic, lakefront beach house with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 3 scenic wood decks. It is the only rental in the Sunset Beach Association, a lake level neighborhood (no staircases or bluffs needed to get to the beach) next to to 16 Mile Creek and Freeport Beach.

This house is a great place for an authentic Lake Erie Beach experience. If you are looking for a great location, this is it. We offer gorgeous picture window views from the living spaces, plus lake views from two of three bedrooms. There are no stairs or bluffs/cliffs between the house and the beach. (For rental homes in our area, be sure to ask about how and where the beach is accessed.) The sights, sounds and fresh breezes of lake living are experienced here without having to leave the property.

This is a nice family setting -- a quiet residential, family neighborhood built around enjoyment of Lake Erie -- a nice place to relax and unwind, but close enough to town for errands, exploring or a indulging at Bella Day Spa and very close to many wineries.

LAYOUT

The first floor offers the living area, kitchen, washer, dryer, bathroom with stand-up shower, and one bedroom with two twin beds. We have a table for four and counter seating for two inside the home. Outside there is a picnic table for dining al fresco.

The kitchen is equipped with oven, cooktop, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, cookware, dishes, and utensils.

The second floor has a full bathroom with tub-shower and two bedrooms, both with Queen beds and access to the second floor deck overlooking the lake.

Three scenic wood decks offer outdoor living space, including two decks overlooking the beach and lake.

BEACH/LAKEFRONT

- Sunset Beach is a natural Great Lakes shoreline. It changes with the weather and is not groomed. We do not have sand replenishment at Sunset Beach. We have many beach stones, driftwood, and assorted treasures for the treasure hunters. Sorry, we do not have palm trees or coconuts or inches of sand, but it is a great place to swim, walk the beach, enjoy a camp fire, paint beach stones and treasure hunt.

- Best of both worlds. Freeport Beach, the public beach next to us, does get sand replenishment and grooming. Little ones will enjoy the playground at Freeport Beach. Older kids and adults can enjoy the sand volleyball courts there. In the summer season, Freeport Beach offers a lifeguard.

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

ATTRACTIONS

- Lake Erie Wine Trail: We are located on the Wine Trail with 11 wineries within 8 miles of this home. 24 wineries make up the complete wine trail. Our wineries are open YEAR ROUND. With that, we have many artisans, galleries, antique shops and restaurants along our growing trail of wineries. Winery Tours make for a great ladies getaway, classy bachelorette trip, or couples getaway.

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. If you visit during a slower time, call ahead to book a special small group session with a winemaker for a look behind the scenes. A private tour would be a nice way to celebrate a special occasion. A special dinner or gathering at a winery is a nice idea for a rehearsal dinner, shower, engagement party or classy bachelorette. Ask us. We are local and can make recommendations and introductions for this kind of event.

- Our ladies groups also enjoy Bella Day Spa, Double DAB Horseriding Trails, In-Home Wine Glass Painting Class (ask me for info). I can also tell you about local events coinciding with your trip.

- World Class Fishing: Lake Erie is known for its world class fishing including walleye, perch, bass, lake trout, and steelhead. We are in Steelhead Alley. We can recommend Charters to you for lake fishing. We are also very close to the “Mile” Creeks of Steelhead Alley. 16 Mile Creek is about 40 feet from this house. 20 Mile is about 3 miles from this house. Steelhead season typically runs from October through March with peak catches per person in December. We can also recommend a fishing guide if you want to learn how to fish, learn about our area, need equipment or need some tips. Surprise your husband, dad or grandpa with a Guided Fishing Trip - equipment and expertise provided. Ask me for recommendations.

- Sunsets: You will notice the local neighbors gather at sundown to catch our sunsets. Watching the sun set each night into the lake is a beautiful thing.

- Nearby: We have a nice variety of restaurants nearby, including the iconic Lake Erie-themed Freeport Restaurant & Tavern just 0.4 miles from the house, The Cork 1794 Restaurant is just 3 miles. The Bella Day Spa is 3 miles. My favorite place for coffee/lunch/hanging out is The Boston Bean Café – a cool space with WiFi. We can recommend many more local restaurants and things to do - we are local. For 18-holes of golf, we recommend Green Meadows Golf Course (5 miles).

- We are a short drive to Chautauqua Lake, Findley Lake, Peek-n-Peak Golf & Ski Resort - and new Mountaineering and Zipline Courses, Erie, Presque Isle State Park as well as Presque Isle Downs & Casino, Splash Lagoon Water Park, Waldameer Amusement Park, Malls (Millcreek, Galleria, Grove City). For unique family adventures, we recommend the new mountaineering course and zip lines at Peek 'n Peak, the Horse Riding Trails at Double DAB, and the Scallywags Pirate Ship in Erie.

WATER SPORTS

- Our location is excellent for water sports. If you are looking for a place to kayak, canoe or windsurf, 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.

About Lynne Clement

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.

Why Lynne Clement chose Erie

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Sunset Beach in August 2014

We had a wonderful relaxing time staying here. Convenient location to the things we wanted to do. House could use some TLC and a good cleaning inside and out and spraying for spiders but that didn't really bother our enjoyment of being there. Enjoyed skipping and painting rocks and sitting by an evening fire. Watching the geese come in the evening and leave in the morning was an enjoyable event also.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay Debi. I'm glad I was able to talk to you and hear your specific concerns about light bulbs being out and the spider webs. It is important to us to keep the house well-maintained for guests. We now have a new housekeeper who will be responsible for changing lightbulbs. With respect to the spider webs, this has been one of those rare years when a second treatment for spiders is necessary. Thanks for letting us know. Hope to hear from you again.

Erie Lakeside

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely setting and a pretty and comfortable home to stay in. Found it very relaxing and close to North East an historic small town. The area is surrounded by vineyards and winerys too. While we loved being so close to the shore, the grounds are a little rugged. There was a lot of driftwood washed up and the rocks there are hard to walk on especially for small children. There is a public beach accessible by car. A stream flows in front of the house and is separated from Lake Erie beach by a small strip of sand. Fly fishermen were catching fish in the stream and also saw fishermen in the surf. Beach combing produced interesting rocks and some sea glass even. We loved sitting on the deck and listening to the surf, and a great place to watch the sunsets. Also, there is a very good restaurant just up the road which was good for dinner out.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our lake house and beach. Many of our guests enjoy walking over to the public beach, volleyball courts and playgound for a beach adventure walk and collect treasures along the way. Our shoreline is ever changing with the weather so there are always new things to find along the lakeshore. The natural drift wood is handy for builidng bonfires and dwindles down as the season progresses. The fishing is a real sweet spot and bonus at this location! Enjoy your summer.

Cozy Retreat

  • 4 of 5
The Sunset Beach House was a great location for a relaxing girls' weekend.
The house was well maintained, clean, and appointed with the essentials. We had no issues, but felt comfortable that we could easily get in contact with someone if need be.
The location is convenient to both North East, PA and Westfield, NY for shops, restaurants, and wineries.
While the early-May weather did not allow for swimming and sunbathing, we were able to enjoy walks along the water and see amazing sunsets right from the patio. The lake access is fantastic and would be great for anyone looking to lounge by the water in the warmer weather.
Overall, the Sunset Beach House met and exceeded all expectations!

CUP Girlfriends weekend

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What a find! Just right for six sassy sixty year olds! We loved the cottage, beach area (wish it would have been warmer!), and doing our "tasting tour" of the wineries! This was our 10th girlfriends weekend and we rank this as the #1 for fun, relaxation, dining and visiting with each other!
Megan - THANKS! We will return!

Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5
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!

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.
