Your family vacation of a lifetime!

HI. Thank you for your interest in The Stone Manor. We are completely booked for the 2014 season and will be taking reservations for 2015 starting in January, 2015. Thank!!

Welcome to your once in a lifetime vacation get-away! Our gorgeous private home is situated on a peninsula perfectly located on Catawba Island in West Harbor minutes from the Jet Express, Miller Ferry, Cedar Point, Marblehead, the beautiful beaches of East Harbor State Park and other area attractions.

On a level lot only 20 feet from the water's edge, The Stone Manor has the perfect view of our picturesque Lake Erie sunrises and sunsets. Wake up in the morning to the sounds of our local nesting geese, swans, ducks and other water birds or sit on our beautiful deck overlooking the water and watch the bald eagles fishing for their breakfast. We are also occasionally visited by many species of migrating birds, otters, beaver, and endangered Trumpeter Swans.

This spectacular home is a boaters and fisherman's paradise with three 30' docks and 6 boat slips equipped with electricity, cable and wifi. At the end of your day out on the water, barbeque steaks and burgers on the grill and have a cocktail on our huge lakefront deck.

After dinner, relax with a glass of wine on the deck or roast marshmallows around the campfire.

For families with children, our home is the perfect get away. Parents will the able to relax while the kids fish or play out on the huge deck. We also have a wide variety of toys and family games, wireless internet, premium cable with movie channels, a DVD and book library and free phone service.

Better yet, visit the great local beaches, parks, playgrounds, water parks and attractions.

Want to stay in? Relax in the sun all day, play one of our many board games or watch or extensive library of DVDs. Like to fish? Throw in a line and catch a huge bass right off the dock! We routinely catch bass, catfish, pan fish and more off the dock. Kids can usually catch fish every time they put a worm in the water.

Our beautiful home is the perfect family retreat and has have hosted several family reunions. We have two full size bedroom suites each with queen beds and private baths. Another bedroom / office has a large sofa sleeper and private bath. We also have a spacious loft currently with three queen size beds but we are happy to add an additional bed for your group if this is a must have. Our home is wheel chair accessible.

About George Dufresne

Hi Everyone. George and Rita Dufresne/Kasper here. My family purchased this home in 2010 as a dream retirement and family get-away. We have had enjoyed many family get togethers here over the years and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

George Dufresne purchased this house in 2010

Why George Dufresne chose Port Clinton

Our entire family is originally from Michigan. However, over the years, everyone slowly migrated down to the Port Clinton area and now we all live here enjoying everything this exciting town has to offer. We love this property because there is something to do for everyone at any age!

I just say enough about what we love about our home. The kids are never bored and everyone who visits finds something that they like to do. In addition to all of the outdoor activities, there are some quaint shops in downtown Port Clinton and Marblehead that I love to walk through as well as some wonderful flea markets.

I could go on and on about our weekly art and cultural festivals as well but you get the idea. It’s just plain good family fun!

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefits of The Stone Manor are the 3 docks and 6 boat slips available for large groups as well as the fact that we are wheel chair accessible. Our private hot tub also adds wonderful ambiance after a long day out on the lake. The stone Manor is great for the entire family!

This property was all it was advertised to be and so much more. It was clean, in a good location, and the owners were very helpful and nice. The house is even nicer than the photo indicates. We visited Cedar Point, Bass Island, Port Clinton Walleye Festival, Marblehead, and had a wonderful, relaxing time. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative. We prepared our meals and did not eat out except at the Pizza Hut, which was very good.

Beautiful property in a beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5
This property is as advertised. Our extended family of 12 spent a week here over Memorial Day weekend and had a wonderful time. The location is central to several activities including Cedar Point Amusement Park, Marblehead Lighthouse, and the Islands. We also enjoyed relaxing on the deck and catching catfish from the docks. The spacious living area and open kitchen were perfect for our large group. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
