So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for four days and we could easily have stayed much longer! The house was very spacious, and with four older kids and two adults, we loved that we were not in each other's faces for the entire stay. The lake is literally 20 feet from the back door, and the sunsets are spectacular! It's a nice, quiet area, and in the mornings, we watched for eagles and even saw one swooping down over the water to catch his breakfast. I would not recommend trying to swim here, as the shoreline is very rocky, but fortunately, East Harbor State Park beach isn't far, and it's a very large and clean beach- we had a great time there too. We enjoyed ourselves immensely, and the cottage owners couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. We will definitely consider staying here again!

Great family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from spending a very enjoyable week at the cottage. There was 2 bedrooms with a double bed in each and a separate sleeping area with another double bed which was practically a 3rd bedroom. The house is very spacious and even has a washer and dryer. There is not central air but between room air conditioners and fans was very comfortable. There is a screened in porch and a roomy upper deck (up 3 or 4 steps) where I went every night to see the beautiful sunset. The house was very clean and spacious. Port Clinton, Cedar Point, Marblehead and East Harbor State Park (which has a public beach) are about 20 minutes away. The fishing is great. Don the owner and his wife are very friendly and attentive. Don also known as "Santa Don" really looks like Santa. My grandchildren were in awe and probably behaved a little better just because lol. I'm looking forward to making this my families annual tradition. Thanks for the memories.

Great family getaway!

The cottage was very roomy and clean. We were 8 people for part of our stay and felt very comfortable. Lots of fans and air conditioners to accommodate the weather. Great deck to enjoy the beautiful bay, sunsets and lots of bald eagles flying overhead. Close to lots of amusement park and attractions. Thanks for the great vacation!

relaxing quiet vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week spent at this property. We had plenty of room for 2 couples and a 3 year old. The owner was very accomodating and moved the extra bed that our 3 year old slept in so that it was close to our bedroom.

We like to do lots of our own cooking. Next time I would bring along our large teflon skillet and 1 sharp knife from home to make things a little easier. Otherwise the kitchen was nice to work in.

The description was accurate and property well-maintained. We enjoyed visiting several area attractions such as Kalihari Water Park, East Harbor State Park, Mon Ami winery and restaurant, downtown Fremont, Lakeside, and Marblehead area.

Relaxing and quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a good time here. Relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle. Close to Cedar Point and Sundusky (approx 15 to 20 minute drive). Owners of the house were friendly and the gentleman even looked like Santa Claus!!
