Add on is priced from $75 to $95 an evening depending upon season and length of stay These cute and clean cottages are located on the beautiful Sandusky River, and are minutes from Sandusky Bay and 30 minutes from Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH. Enjoy a view of the river from the sun-room or the dock. Need more room? ASK ME ABOUT OUR OTHER PROPERTIES ADVERTISED ON HOMEAWAY.

Bring your boat, fishing gear, water skis, water equipment, and binoculars. The cottages are fully furnished and air conditioned. A playground for kids is one block away. A beautiful new dock is available for docking and fishing.

Pickerel Creek and Blue Heron Reserve close by. One half hour from Cedar Point and the Port Clinton or Sandusky ferry boats to the Islands. Boating, water skiing, tubing, biking on site. Bikes and grills provided onsite. On site laundry available.

Wildlife areas surround the cottage where many ducks, egrets, eagles, etc. can be found in great abundance. Fall brings good deer and duck hunting in this unique are.

Rural Setting: Ideal fishing for interested fishermen is the spring walleye run on the Sandusky River in Fremont. For walleye anglers, the Sandusky River in downtown Fremont offers plenty of action. Shore anglers can access the river easily at Swartzlander Park in downtown Fremont. Shoreline anglers can also fish the bay at Pickerel Creek Wildlife Area, Willow Point Wildlife Area, and upstream the action begins earlier with Memory Marina and Riverfront Marina providing boating access to the river where these transitional fish can be found. Huge catches of Walleye are taken from the river in downtown Fremont. The best success on spring walleye usually occurs in the deep pools that line the Sandusky River between the State Street and Miles Newton Bridges in Fremont. The run usually peaks in early April, but fishing stays good throughout the month with White Bass fishing following the Walleye run through June. A variety of pan fish can be easily caught throughout the year.

Great Birding Hot Spot Area : Birding opportunities are numerous throughout this area because of the proximity of the river, bay & lake. Closeby areas include the Magee Marsh & Ottawa wildlife area, Castalia and the Resthaven area, Blue Heron Reserve, and Pickeral Creek not to mention the many ponds and tributaries on site or nearby. Eagles, Herons, Egrets and songbirds can be observed right from the cottage. MAY BRINGS THE BIGGEST WEEK IN BIRDING AT OTTAWA WILDLIFE REFUGE NEARBY.

Memory Marina is located ¼ of a mile from the cottage. You can put our boat in at this location and dock in front of the cottage. Memory Marina also operates a little store with many tasty and useful items for your convenience.

The Pond Builders & Chateau Tableau Winery: Take a beautiful country drive to a stately farm and visit The Pond Builders near Burgoon, OH. Stroll around the ponds, sit in the gazebos and watch the fish. A local winery is also located in this area and is a great place for testing news wines and checking out the beautiful store, evening music, and local countryside.

The Hayes Home and museum, Fremont's National Treasurer, offers outdoor concerts on the veranda the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month during the summer. Hayes was the 19th president of the United States. The home at Speigel Grove sits on a large hill and is surrounded by beautiful old trees many of which were planted when the Hayes family occupied the home. A Civil War enactment held each fall at Spiegel Grove.

Cozy, clean and great deal

  • 5 of 5

Great deal! Cozy, clean and close to everything . Neighborhood was quiet w friendly neighbors, cabin updated and clean. Linda was extremely friendly and easy to work with. Would definitely stay here again. But next time I'll bring gear for the rods left in the garage. Only improvement may have been wifi .

Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was a bit small but worked for our group. I would recommend renting the addition if you have more than four people. I loved that I was able to bring my dog along, he enjoyed being able to roam in the yard due to the low traffic area. The neighborhood was very quiet which was really nice after spending the entire day at Cedar Point. The cottage is about a half hour from the park, not a bad drive at all. If you are planning to stay at the cottage for multiple days I would suggest bringing all of the supplies you think you might need. It wasn't a problem for us since we were only there a short time but it is very minimally stocked for someone who would like the home away from home feel.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice review. We do not stock our cottages with food items with salt and pepper being about all. We also ask that our guests bring their own personal hygiene items, but we do provide paper towel, toilet paper, bedding and towels, pots, pans, dishes, etc. Sometimes items get mixed between cottages especially when we have groups that know each other. Things do not always go back in the cottage in which they belong. We are working on how to solve this problem. Thanks.

Cute, waterfront cottages!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottages. It was a little drive to Cedar Point, but definitely priced right. Traveling with 12 people can get pretty pricey, so it is nice to cut costs where possible. The cottages were quiet and well stocked. We enjoyed the deck and tables that were available to be used on the water. Linda was so nice to work with. Reminded me of staying at a family member's "beach" house and after meeting Linda that is how she makes you feel!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We came with a group of 4 adults for a trip to Cedar Point and Sandusky for a few days and our stay was great! The cottage was a good size for the four of us and offered everything we needed -- plenty of pots, pans, utensils and dishes for cooking and eating multiple meals, enough space for playing a few board games that we brought and enough beds that the 4 of us all had a separate one. It's basically right on the Sandusky River so there is a beautiful view as well and a small dock if you'd like to use it. There were plenty of mosquitoes but a little bit of bug spray took care of that without a problem. The cottage is about 30 minutes away from Downtown Sandusky and 40 minutes away from Cedar Point, so it was no problem for us because we went to the park from open to close, only leaving to get lunch in Sandusky. Overall, we had a great stay and no complaints with anything we used.

Was a little disappointed with all the reviews was expecting it to be better. They have three or four small places they are advertising in one listing. The cottage we stayed had furniture that looked to be from the 60's, the beds were like sleeping on rocks, there is stuff growing in the gutters which caused many many mosquitoes bites. The refrigerator was turned off and took forever to get cold. The air conditioner did not keep up with warm days. They say there is three docks to use but can only use one because one has there boat and other is broke and the usable one is shared with all places. We had to wait to use it and other people staying scattered there beach towels and such all over it. Washer/dryer, grill, bikes, etc are shared with all places.The pros are they are very nice people and did catch catfish from the dock.

Owner's Response: Each of our cottages are listed separately on HomeAway and have been listed that way for years with the exception of 137381, which you can rent with the ad on or not. If the ad on is available, we offer it to other guests. This has been a trying summer for cottage owners because of unusually rainy, bad, weather, destroying one of the 3 docks, which is currently being replaced. Because of all of the rain, the mosquitos have been bad, too. The gutters have been cleaned several times, but again because of the rain and the heavy maple seed production this year, it is difficult to keep up with this problem, as well. The refrigerator was on, but was turned down and the same with the air conditioner in order to save on energy costs and to keep our costs lower for our customers. We now keep the refrigerator at a higher setting as well as the air conditioning. Thank you for your comments.
