About Marla Rickloff
I am semi-retired, and my husband and I love to spend time on Lake Erie in the summer with our family and friends.
Marla Rickloff purchased this House in 2000
Why Marla Rickloff chose Oak Harbor
I fell in love with Golden Gate Cottage the first time I saw it! It is in my mind, a 'Grandma' cottage. Sweet bungalow style, wood floors, very cottagey, and the views of Lake Erie are awesome! We love this location, because it is quiet, lots of birds, and yet it is close to the Lake Erie islands, Port Clinton and Lakeside, and Cedar Point!
What makes this House unique
Hanging out by the lake on the patio; reading and cooking!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Eight high school girlfriends for an annual trip to stay in touch. The location Worked out really well for us as 6 are from Cbus, one from e Lansing and one from Hudson OH. Kitchen was well equipped and plenty of room for us to sit and relax and catch up. Drove to watch the Buckeyes at Cleats in Marblehead then dinner at chia Bella...probably 15 to 20minute drive which was pretty convenient. We all loved to listen to the waves hitting the rocks at night and beautiful views of the lake were just wonderful. We would have liked to have bar/restaurants in walking distance but then you lose all the amenities and being on the lake! Was a good value and our host was most helpful!
Worked well for us. Everyone had a good time.
Precious Memories at Golden Gate
We have stayed at Golden Gate previously and once again it was a delight! We shared this visit with 6 of our children and their families staying at Golden Gate and another nearby property. It was an amazing trip that helped us create priceless memories! The Rickloffs do a wonderful job of hosting their guests. The linens are top notch and the kitchen is fully stocked with all that you need to enjoy your time away from home! They even provide 2 sets of laundry equipment that is top of the line! It makes keeping up with all of the towels and beachwear a breeze! It's truly like home away from home but with a private beach and lake front views included. Marla was attentive to our messages right away! I hate to share this gem but others deserve to enjoy this beautiful place too!! Blessings from the Healys in Mason, Ohio!
Loved having you! Come again, any time it works for your family.
Great spot on the lake to swim, kayak, and play with our family.
Beautiful lakefront house private beach and privacy.
Loved almost everything about it. Only minor inconvenience while staying there was only one small bathroom upstairs with four bedrooms. Also our scheduling was off because of Mayflies but owner was very helpful with advice. So no regrets and had a wonderful time. Beds very comfortable and lovely décor.
Loved having you and your gracious response to being the recipients of a few days of mayflies! I wish I "could" schedule when they come in off from Lake Erie! Their timing is any time between mid-May and mid-July.
When we remodeled our sweet cottage we added a third full bathroom on the first floor. Total we have five bedrooms and three Full bathrooms. Four of the bedrooms have king beds and the fifth has a queen.
Come again, any time! It is beautiful and awesome to be by Lake Erie in the winter! --Marla
