Sandusky Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Sleeper sofa 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Waterfront First Floor Chesapeake Lofts Condominium with beautiful view of Sandusky Bay, Lake Erie and Cedar Point.

Call now to get the dates you want for a great deal, I have not raised my rates!!! We have a 2 night minimum , although if I have a free night on the calendar, I would consider a one night rental. Just ask!

This unit is the closest one to the pool. It has a large enclosed patio which overlooks Cedar Point and Lake Erie and has amazing views of beautiful sunrises and evening fireworks at Cedar Point. The condo is well equipped with everything you will need to make your stay enjoyable. This includes a well stocked kitchen, high-speed internet,DVD player, flat screen TVs in both the living room and the bedroom.

The docks for the Jet Express and Goodtime ferry boats - your ticket over to the Lake Erie Islands - are located right outside your door. The Jet Express is now stopping at Cedar Point, so no more driving to Cedar Point. Just walk across the parking lot and hop on the Jet. How easy is that????

This unit is located within steps of the large heated pool with hot tub and grilling area. The condo is an easy walk to local restaurants, shops, museums, parks and a downtown theater. A new marina with transient boat docks is adjacent to the condo . There is also a dockside cafe with a wonderful view of the lake.

There is a large well-equipped exercise facility with large screen TVs just down the hall from your unit.

Listed by the National Register of Historic Places, the building was a paper factory that was recently converted to condominiums. Located directly on Lake Erie, each unit is unique with the original brick walls, high ceilings and exposed pillars. Your patio is the old loading dock for the paper factory.

This condo is the perfect choice for your next relaxing getaway or fun family vacation! Call today for more information on the condo, Cedar Point or the Sandusky area. We will be happy to answer any questions and are eager to make your visit as perfect as possible.

About Kim Gentzel

I work at a local elementary school so my summer job is renting this condo. My husband and I enjoy traveling, I know what I want in a vacation rental and I want my guests to have the best experience possible. I take a lot of pride in many positive reviews I have.

We bought two condos with the intentions of renting both, but starting staying in one and it never made it to the rental market! I love the Chesapeake. Obviously it is a lot of fun in the summer, but I was surprised how much I enjoy the winters. The lake is absolutely beautiful when it freezes. And we just go down the hall and across the street to the restaraunts and bars. I appreciate the short walk in the winters!

My guests are so happy when they see the condo for the first time. I enjoy meeting my guests and assisting them with their vacation in any way I can.

Kim Gentzel purchased this condo in 2008

Why Kim Gentzel chose Ohio

We love the lake and have docked our boat down the street for years, so when the opportunity came to buy a condo in Sandusky we jumped at the chance. Actually we bought two units intending to rent both, but started staying in one of them while outfitting it and fell in love with the Chesapeake. So now we stay here as often as possible and rent the remaining unit! I love meeting new people and helping them enjoy the Chesapeake as much as I do.

What makes this condo unique

The view, the view, the view!!! We have a large patio that overlooks Lake Erie and Cedar Point.

Location-the ferries to the Lake Erie Islands are across the parking lot to the east. On the west side of the parking lot is a new marina with an amphitheater and a darling Dockside restaurant.

Downtown Sandusky is a 3 minute walk-enjoy the many restaurants, shops, and parks.

The pool-we are the closest unit to the pool.

Cedar Point-we are minutes away from Cedar Point.

Relax-there are many things to do in the area, but this is a beautiful place to do nothing but enjoy the lake.

Free advice-I live here too so I can give you all the advice you need to enjoy your stay here. I want you to love the Chesapeake as much as I do.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights and visited Put-In-Bay and Cedar Point during our visit. We have a teenager and a 'tween.'

Kim was wonderful to work with - beginning with a quick response to our first inquiry to the restaurant recommendations we found in the unit. It was great not having to deal with the tiny rooms and noise of a hotel. Having the Jet Express so close was a real plus. And, we're so glad we tried the Dockside Café. The residents and other visitors were friendly. Pool was great and sitting outside on the patio in the evening was very relaxing.

Unit was great. Our kids were a little uncomfortable on the pull-out sofa, but we had an air mattress as a back up.

Great experience. We would definitely come back.

Wonderful and convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Kim was very nice to work with and also gave us local suggestions to try out while visiting. The description of the property is exact. The condo is super clean and nice. Also, a plus is that you are located close to either the Good Times boat or the Jet Express to visit the other islands. Thank you again for your hospitality!!

The ferry to the Lake Erie Islands is across the parking lot. The Jet Express is now stopping at Cedar Point during the summer. So no more driving to Cedar Point, walk across the parking lot and hop on the ferry!

I always recommend my guests visit the islands. Kellys Island is larger and more quiet. Put In Bay is quite busy on the weekends, but quieter during the week. I recommend seeing both if you have never been here before. The Jet Express is a quick, easy way to get to the islands, and best of all, no drive home! The condo is right across the parking lot.

Cedar Point is visible from the balcony, again, most of my guests visit Cedar Point.

Downtown Sandusky is one block away, with it's many nice restaurants, bars and shops. I love the Small City Taphouse and Crush. Many guests enjoy the speakeasy down the street, Vostead. And you can't beat the Dockside Cafe at the marina to the left of the condo.
