Lorain House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 6-12

Welcome to your home for the week/weekend! The Beacon B&B/Vacation Rental at Lakeview Beach offers a relaxing stay directly across from Lakeview Beach and South Lakeview Park, facing the lighthouse with the neighboring beacon light flashing through the windows as if to guide and welcome you home! This classic century home with formal, yet warm and inviting, living/dining area and newly remodeled large open kitchen create a comfortable classy atmosphere for our guests. Enjoy morning strolls at the beach with hot coffee or walks through the historic rose garden or quaint well-maintained neighborhood. Relax and soak in the sunshine on the beach. Indulge in a massage with on-site LMT. Take it up a notch with countless activities: tennis, basketball, bike-riding, volleyball. Allow the breathtaking sunset over Lake Erie and the colorful fountain to set the mood for your evening as you take in the splendor with music and wine on the large front porch boasting a million dollar view!

The Beacon B&B is a century brick home located ACROSS the street from the Lighthouse that is pictured with that view of the Lighthouse and Beacon (for which the B&B is named). The Beacon B&B was being used as a vacation rental this past season and likewise this coming season. There will be some extra special services expected in a B&B like evening 'turn down service' with chocolate on the pillows, fresh flowers, etc. But the home is rented to single families/groups so you will enjoy it privately! The price will be increasing for this coming season, but reflects renting the entire home for the week. I also intend to have the adjacent property available for vacation rental with the initial rates of The Beacon.

The 'Beacon B&B' is a classic century home and includes a more formal living/dining area with the warmth of 'old world/Tuscany' decor along the newly remodeled large, open kitchen creating a comfortable, classy and inviting atmosphere for our guests. Find quiet resting places in the 'Widow's Peak' in muted green tones overlooking the beach, with its computer armoire and delightful doll houses or relax with a book on the reclining/rocker loveseat in the library in rich red and gold tones with decor seemingly inspired by voyages to Asia and Africa.

The sleeping areas begin with the 'Captain's Quarters', a private second floor suite including a King bed with rich deep plum and brown hues, attached private bath, large bay window with full views of the beach and parks. 'Mermaid's Delight', a charming second floor bedroom includes a Queen bed with calming blue hues, delicate floral linens with a touch of gold and pink along with views of the beach and gardens and shares a large bath with whirlpool tub. 'Tranquility by the Sea' also on the second floor with a Queen bed wrapped in luxurious Park Avenue bedding in rich brown and blue tones and large shared bath directly across hall with whirlpool tub. 'Eagle's Nest' a suite located on the third floor with spectacular views of the lake and beach include a King bed with calming olive and navy decor, sleeper sofa, vanity area and private bath.

These four overnight stay rooms/suites and full access to the living areas and kitchen along with our pleasant host provide accommodations that truly make you feel at home.

'The Beacon' was built in the early 1900's directly facing the lighthouse with the neighboring beacon light flashing through the windows as if to guide and welcome you home! The large brick home withstood the damaging winds of the 1924 tornado. It provided a loving home to several families and at one point in the mid-1900's offered guest rooms as a tourist home. It sits proudly across from Lakeview Beach with its magnificent view of Lake Erie sunsets, along with the historic lighthouse, fountain and rose garden, as well as the newly reconstructed beach bathhouse that sits on the original foundation remaining from the tornado. This home's original garage was located under the large front porch as seen by the sills of the poured walls along the re-established driveway toward the front of the house. Most of the original woodwork and floors remain and grace the halls of this home that reminisce of a bygone era.

Ms. Kucirek acquired the property in 2003 after failing in love with the open airiness of the surrounding parks and magnificent full beach view. She is now happy to share this home and realize her dream of opening a B&B at Lakeview Beach. We are excited as we complete renovations for the 2012 season with special introductory rates and plan our Grand Opening with open houses early in the 2013 season! We are happy to announce a major improvement is now complete: the water pressure! The 'Eagle's Nest' on the third floor remains under renovation and is not available. A sleeper sofa was added to the library to provide a fourth private sleeping room for guests. We are a proud sponsor of Follow the Fish Arts and Adventure Trails, Lorain County.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Where to begin...? The stay was great! Kelly was more than accommodating and made us feel like we were old friends. The house was more than spacious for two couples, and we all felt very comfortable. The kitchen was great and had everything we would need as far as essentials went such as ketchup, mustard, etc. The fact that she provided breakfast the first day was very kind and courteous. We used the grill out back and had some great steaks along with some good chicken from the local Wal-Mart. The rooms were great and had a rustic charm with current features. The location was perfect and easy access to Cedar Park and Cleveland where we caught an Indians game. The beach was great and the views were very relaxing. We woke up and caught the sunrise on our first morning and thought that there was a lot of charm in the area. Kelly recommended the "Mile Long Pier" to us which was great and we went out at night and also on the day we left. We could see the lighthouse from the front porch where we spent a good bit of time enjoying the views and watching the people. The little town had events every night that we were there which was very convenient. We dined out at two places in the area and enjoyed both of them immensely. We first had lunch at The Pit which is a delicious barbecue place towards Vermillion. The food was amazing!!! The other place we ate at was the Jin House near the highway...great low prices, good quality food and the sushi was AMAZING!! Overall, great house, great and gracious hostess, and beautiful area.

Great for family get-together

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here and enjoyed every bit of it. The house is beautiful and the location is fantastic. The 5 adults in our party were able to visit and linger over coffee comfortably with all the amenities of home. Kelly is a very accommodating hostess, willing to help in any way. The discounted price due to ongoing renovations was greatly appreciated and an excellent deal. Lakeview Park is right across the street and it's beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and watching the fountain in the evening. The road in front is busy, yes, but not really disruptive. I guess it depends on what you're used to. I live on a busy road also so I really didn't feel it was a distraction. I highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a rental in the Lorain area.

Home, beach and park are all lovely!

  • 4 of 5
Though we had a wonderful time, and will probably return in the future, we gave this property a four instead of a five for a couple of reasons. One, the picture is deceiving in that the lighthouse is much further away than expected, and we had trouble finding it because we expected it to be within walking distance and it is miles away. Two, it is on a busy, and somewhat noisy, street. (When it rained we had to go into the back yard to listen to it.) But it is beside, and across from very nice, green parks, and the beach is just beyond the one park. The beach is very clean, and has two lifeguards on duty, a snack shop, and bathrooms. The sunsets were gorgeous. It would've been nice to have a beach blanket, folding chairs, and an umbrella for the beach, and I imagine Kelly will be getting them soon. Big soft beach towels were provided. The parks have basketball and tennis courts, a lighted fountain, picnic tables, benches etc.. The house is air conditioned and was very comfortable, and Kelly was very easy to work with. She had breakfast items upon our arrival along with fresh flowers in the kitchen, and chocolates in every room. NICE touch! The porch was huge with a nice glider and four soft, comfy chairs and ottoman. Lorain is nicely located with a beautiful hike near the Black River only twenty minutes away (would be an awesome bike ride), and it also has a waterfall, and restrooms. The town of Vermilion, just twenty minutes away, was a wonderful surprise with unique shops and boat tour. In Lorain, Pete's restaurant was inexpensive with great food and service. It was only an hour to Sandusky where we took a ferry to an island, took a tour inside the biggest Geode in the country (awesome!) and went up in the Perry Monument where we overlooked the lake and 17 islands. (Who knew?) Beds were comfy, and though home is still in fixing up phase, it didn't bother us at all. Jacuzzi tub would've been nice to use; it will be great once it is hooked up. I like privacy, so I was a little uncomfortable that the master bedroom only had sheer decorative window coverings without shades to pull down. Plus the sun became my too early alarm. Thank you, Kelly, for providing us with information, and a beautiful place to stay. And thanks for always being there when we needed you! I would recommend this home to anyone. There's a small 'cottage' next door if you have two groups wanting to be near each other, just not in same house. We had a fun, relaxing time.

Fabulous "Home for Christmas"

Fabulous "Home for Christmas"
  • 5 of 5
We really had a fantastic week and could not have done what we did without your great house. We loved being able to have our own house for Christmas where our family could gather to celebrate. We had siblings and cousins driving from Mentor, Painesville, Olmsted just to hang out at ‘our’ house on multiple days. We did not expect that, but everyone just came and got so comfortable. Some of the nieces and nephews in their twenties and early thirties liked playing board games and they would set up shop up in the sitting room, or in a bedroom or by rearranging furniture in the living room. The grand-nieces would find another corner and play tea party, with older cousins coming in and out to sit on the floor with them… And us old folks would gather in the kitchen, or at the dining room table, or in another corner of the living room… and it went on all day. An added holiday treat was to sit and look out at the gorgeous view of Lake Erie, play in the snow, and walk through the Parade of Christmas Lights in the park across the street. Our idea of a fabulous family Christmas was made possible by renting your home. Thank you!

It was a pleasure to open up my home to you! I am so glad it worked well for your family. I look forward to your return, perhaps when you can trade your hat and gloves for some beach towels!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in Lorain, the home was a warm and welcoming. Kelly was extremely nice! Fixings for breakfast, coffee, and fresh fruit were available for our consumption and we were free to come and go as we pleased. Lovely location just across the street from the beach on Lake Eerie. Really couldn't have been a better choice.

Luck for us there was a bit of renovation still happening (low water pressure and such) which made the home affordable for us as well.
