The GLASS HOUSE was designed by an assocaite of Frank Lloyd Wright (FLW) and was built in 1960. It is a UNIQUE example of his classic architecture and use of 'core' living space. The large picture windows across the front and rear allow an unobstructed view of the lake and the bay. The mahogonay wood walls and interior finish is an exceptional example of FLW's style and simplicity. It is classic FLW Style with Cedar Ceilings and large glass picture windows in the front and in the rear of the living area. The front deck provides a panoramic view of the lake with a relaxing area to enjoy the moment.

Recent improvements include: Flat Screen TV with sound system, DVR-TV, DVD, VCR, NetFlix and BLU-RAY Player. A small kitchen and refrigerator were added to the utility room for entertaining on the brick patio. 3 Picnic tables and patio furniture allow the full use of the outside rear yard and ample areas for children and games.

Two bedrooms are located on the upper floor along with an OPEN living area, kitchen, dining area and two decks. The Lower Level has two bedrooms and a sitting/office area with a second TV for more versatility in entertainment. Internet is also provided without charge at the desk.

About Donald Epler

The 'Glass House' was purchased by my family in 1960. It has been redecorated and upgraded over the years. The home fronts on Lake Erie and the back is on Sandusky Bay. A huge back yard for croquet, bocci ball, badminton, soccer, fishin in the bay, and a second beach with picnic table. The large brick patio and gas grille can accomodate all of your family.

Why Donald Epler chose Ohio

My family bought the 'Glass House' on Cedar Point because they fell in love with the view, the lake, the house, and the location. it is close to Columbus, Ohio (2 hours drive) and easily reachable for all of our friends from Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, and Michigan.

The view has always been unique to the Glass House which is why the large glass picture Windows were put on the front and rear.

What makes this house unique

The 'Glass House' is unique! The Front and back are completely Glass picture windows. The front view is of Lake Erie and the Back views the Sandusky Bay, large back yard, and places for children to play games. Beach toys, boccie ball, badminton, and beach chairs are on site. A new sound system, dvd, dvr, speakers and more cable stations were added for guests.

The Cedar Point Amusement Park is less than a mile to the West and the Lighthouse is visible at night along with the Park lights. Fireworks are on each Saturday night.

Great family vacation get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8, including 2 young children had a great stay. The house is spacious and beautiful. We loved the sunrises on the lake, the quiet neighborhood, and the easy access to Cedar Point and Soak City. The backyard was perfect for grilling and just relaxing with the kids on the patio. Gail was quick to show up with a high chair for us. We saw the meteor shower at night, as well as the nightly fireworks from Cedar Point from our private beach. We all had an awesome time and I would definitely recommend this property!

First trip to Cedar Point

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in The Glass House for our first time to visit Cedar Point. The house was very clean and was perfect for our group of 6. The house had everything needed for a week stay and was in a perfect location and a great view of Lake Erie. Mr. Epler was a pleasure to deal with and went out of his way to make changes for us when we have an unexpected change in our plans. This is the place to stay if visiting Sandusky.

The Glass House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this house. It was surrounded by water with the bay in the back and Lake Erie in the front. It also was very convenient because Cedar Point was around the corner. The house was big enough for the 12 of us and very clean. We will definitely be back again!!

Kick Off to Summer

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a home to stay in while we enjoyed Cedar Point and the surrounding area. The house is comfortable and allowed the 7 of us to unwind after a busy school year. If you enjoy Mid Century architecture and décor this house is for you! The view of the bay and Lake Erie is amazing! We enjoyed sipping coffee on the front porch every morning taking in the beautiful and calming scenery. Our youngest daughter loved listening to all the different birds singing in the back yard. Gail was very sweet and checked in with us a couple times to make sure all was well. This was a wonderful house to get checked back in as a family and relax.

Holiday Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a wonderful stay during the winter holiday. Although we understand the house is more frequently used in the summer, the owner was extremely helpful at arranging our stay in December. The house is an excellent example of modern architecture, with an airy, open upper floor allowing our family of 11 people to all be together, cooking, eating, playing and enjoying panoramic views of water on both sides of the house. Our kids played in the yard, on both beaches and throughout the house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed. Extremely highly recommended.

HalloWeekends

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here for HalloWeekends at Cedar Point with our extended family. The property is lovely and clean, the views beautiful, and the location very convenient. The house had everything we needed and we would love to come back in the summer to enjoy the beach.

THE GLASS HOUSE WAS DESIGNED BY AN ASSOCIATE OF FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT AND BUILT IN 1960. IT HAS ALL THE CHARM AND FEATURES OF HIS CLASSIC ARCHITECTURE WHICH MAKES THE MOST OF THE PANORAMIC VIEWS OF THE LAKE AND BAY.

THE GLASS HOUSE IS THE CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF BEACHFRONT LIVING! THE BEACH IN FRONT AND THE BAY IN THE REAR ARE UNMATCHED IN THEIR BEAUTY AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS.

Notes:
The Glass House has water views on both sides. CEDAR POINT IS A SHORT WALK ON THE BEACH!! The views are exceptional from the front or back of the house. Cedar Point Amusement Park is less than a mile to the West. Walk to the 'Point' on the beach! Swim, fish, or visit the islands of Lake Erie by Ferry Boats in the area. Local charter fisherman are available for perch and walleye! Ferries to Kelly's Island, Put-in_Bay, and Middle Bass Island are minutes away. SO MUCH TO DO, SO LITTLE TIME! Visit Kalihari Water Park, or Great Bear Indoor Water Park!
