Overview

Conneaut House Rental Photos and Description

Accommodations: House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bath

Charming red cottage with stone fireplace nestled on private 40 acre estate, 600 feet of Lake Erie waterfront, small boat launch, bullfrog pond, trickling stream, fruit trees, blueberries, walking trials at the end of half mile wooded driveway. Perfect for family reunions or vacation retreat located 22 miles West of Erie, PA and 8 miles East of Conneaut, OH.

This 4 bedroom home is available year round, but cross country skiing access maybe required for winter use. The property is bordered by Lake Erie to the North, Camp Lambec to the West and to the South and East are private undeveloped lands. Nearby, the largest tract of undeveloped land on the South Shore of Lake Erie, the Pennsylvania State Game lands/David M Roderick Wildlife Reserve; and the new Lake Erie Bluff's park is also nearby.

A historical property due to its location on the final 259th milepost of the pre-revolutionary war northern boundary of Pennsylvania. For history buffs, a granite monument near the highest bluff placed in 1910s marks the old state line and recounts the deed dating back to a treatise signed with the Indians and George Washington. The cottage built in the 1940s was expanded and renovated in 2000 to include a first floor master bedroom and private bath, a spacious maple cabinet kitchen, breakfast nook stocked with all equipment to prepare any meal. The living room has a stone, wood burning fireplace to make any night feel cozy. A lakefront dining room and settee, front and back decks both perfect places to relax, listen to the waves, see the boats go by and watch the hummingbirds dart around the feeder. If the weather turns, the enclosed front and back solarium settees allows you to take in the beauty.

The second floor has 2 bedrooms. Both with 2 twin beds and shared full bath.

Nearby: Wineries, Covered Bridges of Ashtabula County, Geneva on the Lake, Presque Isle State Park, Tom Ridge Center, The White Turkey Drive-In, Peggy Gray Candies, Waldameer Amusement Park, Splash Lagoon, The Brig Niagara, Pymatuning Lake (where the ducks walk on the fish's backs), Amish country, Camp Lambec, Camp Fitch, Camp Sherwin, Camp Eriez, Charter Fishing in Conneaut or Erie (no cleaning fish at the cottage), Pizzi Pizza, Tasty Twist, Conneaut Lake Park, Golfing (Over Lake is very nice and nearby), Sea Kayaking, Canoeing (Grand River and Elk Creek are a short drive), jet skiing, Scuba Diving (yes, in Lake Erie!), Morel mushroom hunting, disc golf ...

Relaxing: The environment simply lures you into leaving your stresses behind. Read a book while relaxing in the hammock. Take the time for incredible sunsets.

Badminton, frizbe and bocce balls are all provided. The large yard is a great place to play catch.

Hiking: Over 4000 acres of State game lands are one mile to the west.

Boating: The cottage has plenty of room to park your boat. Smaller boats can be launched on the property and at Raccoon Creek Park. Larger boats will need to go to Conneaut, Elk Creek, or other nearby ramps.

Swimming: On your own private beach. Build a fire on the beach and cook a hot dog or roast a marshmallow. There is almost always drift wood to keep the fire going.

Hunting: Deer, turkey, dove and much more bring the hunters in from all over the world to nearby state lands - but not permitted on the cottage property.

Birding: At least 50 species of bird nest here. Bald Eagles, Mississippi Kites, Peregrine Falcons are all sighted during migration. Late August and early September brings Monarch butterflies on their way to Mexico. King rail, black tern, least bittern, great egret, yellow crowned night heron and the common tern are others the avid birder has a chance of seeing. Recently spotted Scarlet Tanager and Rose Breasted Grosbeak.

Fishing: Either from the shore, along Raccoon Creek, or nearby Elk and Walnut Creeks, your own boat or chartering in Conneaut or Erie. Walleye, Trout, Perch and many other species. Ice Fishing in Presque Isle bay is a popular winter sport. *NO CLEANING FISH AT THE COTTAGE*

Biking: The lightly traveled roads make for great rides, from leisurely to hard core. Check out Old Lake Road west of the OH/PA line, its awesome!

About David Lund Jr.

Family second home used for gatherings, entertaining and recreation over the years but now not used as much since all children are grown and living out of the area. Offers still the gathering location for reunions and grandchildren entertainment.

David Lund Jr. purchased this house in 1975

Why David Lund Jr. chose Conneaut

It is a place that builds memories, and the owners want to continue that tradition for their grandchildren and generations to come. Sharing its unique beauty and tranquility with others that have a similar desire to have a place for reunions, recreation or just plain quiet time away from it all is what we hope to achieve.

What makes this house unique

Nothing like it exists, the cottage property is named '22 Chains' because it lies on the last milepost of the old Pennsylvania northern border and the land, that remains as the final segment connected to the Lake Erie waterfront, is the 22 chains. Had it not been for a land trade with New York after America's independence was won, the only waterfront for Pennsylvania would have started from this location and extend the short distance to Ohio to the West. That's the history behind it, but the real benefit is its pure beauty of waterscapes and landscapes. A superior place to decompress and enjoy family time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Not enough could be said about this piece of paradise. Our family has great memories from past visits and look forward to our returning and making more.

Get away from it all

  • 5 of 5
When all us girls went away for our ladies weekend we didn't know what to expect. We travel up north a few times a year for our ladies only weekend away and was very pleased with what we found when we got there. The driveway through the woods to the house was all covered in yellow fallen leaves, it was just beautiful. The pond was the first thing we saw before we got to the house. The house is very secluded which is what most of us wanted. The house is a nice size so the 9 of us had plenty of room. We didn't see any bald eagles but the sunsets were one of the nicest ones I have ever seen. Being right there on the lake was very relaxing. I would recommend this place for anyone who needs to get away from it all. The owners were really great to work with. We can't wait to go back during a different season so we could spent more time at the beach and on the deck. You are close to Erie as well as Ohio. Didn't get a chance to do to much while we were there because of the weather but did enjoy the company and the fact that we were away. Again can't wait to go back.

Lovely Relaxing and Comfortable Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is lovely!! After a city break and lots of driving, it was lovely to have the perfect rest at this house in such a nice location. You can just rest and enjoy the house and the lake, relaxing swims, laying in the sun, watch TV etc, or get our and see other places nearby.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5
Each year my sister and I organize a family holiday. Each family member has a different criteria when we are looking for a rental. 22 Chains fulfilled them all. Seclusion (my brother)--you couldn't ask for more here --house totally by itself. Kids could run and play games without any dangers from cars. etc. Big kitchen(my criteria) great for preparing our evening meals --4 or 5 people could be helping without getting in anyone's way. View (My sister) we always have to have lakefront-- She is afraid of the water but loves to look at it and it was spectacular --the lakefront dining room where we ate all our meals had the best view ever. Lake just below. It looks more like an ocean than a lake with all the waves. Several members went swimming in the lake.

We felt a special connection as we viewed the family pictures and memories of those who had vacationed there. The Captains Quarters was perfect for my 88 year old mother --it had its own 1/2 bath for her frequent bathroom trips but would also be perfect for a teenager.

We had read in the guest book about the eagles but didn't see them until our next to last day there. They were absolutely beautiful soaring above about and playing in the strong winds that day.

We left fully renewed and refreshed. A great holiday for the family. Would recommend to all.

Perfect week!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a perfect week on Lake Erie at this wonderful location. The weather was fantastic, there was plenty of room for everyone in the family, and having access to our own stretch of sandy beach made for some great memories with the kids. We will definitely be returning next year!
