About the property

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 Sandusky

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.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Kitchen well equipped with pot, pans and dinnerware. We were able to cook most meals in the condo. My only criticism is that the mattresses could be replaced.

An awesome get away! The condo, the grounds and location are Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

Kim was great to work with! The condo was very clean with a wonderful view of the lake and Cedar Point! Movies, books and games are provided if the weather turns bad! Any questions we had Kim answered right away! Conveniently located to downtown Sandusky with great night life! It is gated but for some reason the gate was up all the time except upon our initial entrance and we stayed 2 evenings, though no fault of Kim's, just sharing. Will definitely stay again! It's a beautiful condo and Kim is a wonderful owner to deal with, thank you!

Clean, relaxing, comfortable, accommodating, awesome pool/hot tub, beautiful view of lake & Cedar Pt

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our Honeymoon at this Condo. We could not be happier with Kim's friendliness and welcoming demeanor. We were able to go out on the porch each morning and view the beautiful lake, Cedar Point in the distance and we enjoyed watching people board the Jet Express and Good Time boats daily. This Condo is the perfect location to be able to explore the boardwalk, downtown Sandusky where there are many good eats including Jolly Donut, Dockside Cafe, Small City Taphouse where there are over 80 beers on tap and excellent sushi. We definitely plan on staying here again with our family if we venture to Ohio in the future. We also enjoyed the complimentary Champagne that we had to make mamosas in the morning,☺️

A great get away. The condo, complex and location superb.

  • 4 of 5

I would recommend. The condo unit was clean and comfortable. The complex was upscale and secure. Right outside your door was Lake Erie waterscape. Nice for walking, biking, dining, and more.

Cedar Point Beach

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.
