About the property

Spectacular Lake House - 3 King Suites - *Game Room/Kids Bedroom - *Guest House

The Lake House at Cedar Point is located on the Cedar Point Chaussee and lies in the strip of luxury waterfront homes between the south shore of Lake Erie and Sandusky Bay.

Please see the "Link for more information" in the "Owner Info" section and click on the 3D Virtual Home Tour to see a detailed room by room tour of the Lake House.

The Lake House offers a stunning design with comfortable new furnishings and decor. The ground floor boasts an open floor plan with breathtaking panoramic views of the bay. A gourmet kitchen, multiple eating areas, teak boat bar, 55 inch flat screen, and a gas fireplace make it ideal for family gatherings and entertaining. The walkout patio leads to a private manicured lawn on Sandusky Bay with plenty of outdoor seating and lush landscaping.

Up the stairs to the second floor you will find many well appointed private bedrooms and two large full baths. The master king suite has a large bathroom with his and her sinks and a luxurious Jacuzzi tub overlooking the bay. The commode and large shower are in their own private room. The walk-in closet also has a second laundry. This spacious king suite has vaulted cherry wood ceilings, a remote controlled fireplace, a 42 inch flat screen TV/DVD, and a small kitchenette with a mini-fridge and coffee maker. A private deck offers spectacular bay side views or lay in bed, as if you were sleeping on a yacht, and look out upon the bay vista.

The second king suite is large and comfortable with a 46 inch Samsung flat screen TV/DVD, ceiling fan, accent lighting, and cherry wood vaulted ceilings. This suite has a large unique three-quarter round window ideal for watching the sun drop gracefully into the bay and also offers a lake view from the bed.

The third queen suite is a private and cozy retreat with vaulted ceilings, lake view, 36 inch flat screen TV/DVD, ceiling fan, and a large closet. The fourth suite has a lake view and is conveniently located adjacent to the full bath and the third queen suite. This child friendly room offers a full/twin built-in bunk bed and a 32 inch flat screen TV with 'net-connect' that is ready for gaming. The second floor common full bath is spacious with a large jetted tub overlooking the lake and separate shower.

Continuing upward is a private loft bedroom with cherry hardwood ceilings and many interesting nooks. This room has a TV/DVD, and a fold-out queen sleeper sofa. A large round window offers views to the Lake while a tilt out window allows you to let in the Lake breeze.

Up two more steps and through a key-lockable door you will find the upper loft/office. Overlooking the master king suite this compact nook-type room offers a comfortable chair and desk. You may wish to open the two skylights and workout on the 'Multi-Gym' exercise machine provided.

Less than twenty feet from water's edge you will find the Guest House, this unique nautical structure offers spectacular unobstructed views of Sandusky Bay. The top of the Millennium coaster is visible on the skyline view through the large 8 foot wide glass sliding door. This cozy, private retreat has amenities such as a king size bed, full bath, coffee pot, small refrigerator and microwave. Relax in the air conditioning and enjoy the 42 inch flat screen TV and the remote controlled fireplace. *(The Guest House adds an additional king suit and is available May 1st through December 1st).

Off the circular driveway you will find the freestanding Game Room/Kids Bedroom. 480 square feet of durable, youth friendly, secluded space. There are many of games of skill such as Air Hockey, Foosball, Darts, etc. This outpost offers all the comforts of home including a half bath, full size refrigerator, fireplace, and a large flat screen T.V. Children may wish to utilize the four twin futons provided and bring sleeping bags for a "sleepover" in this fun hideout. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the Game Room rain or shine. *(The Game Room is available May 1st through December 1st).

Now on to the beach… Past the historic “1937 Michigan” thirty-two foot wooden sailboat nestled in the landscape, a short walk down the driveway and across the street is the beautiful, sandy, private beach. Enjoy swimming and basking in the sun while sitting on one of the five beach chairs provided. If you prefer the shade, relax under the natural canopy of trees on the large two person hammock. You may also wish to take the two person sea kayak provided for a paddle in the surf on beautiful Lake Erie.

On the Bay side… enjoy croquet, badminton, bocce ball, horseshoes, cornhole, and many other outdoor family activities. Paddle out onto the sheltered waters of Sandusky Bay and encounter the unique wildlife habitat, you will see a variety of birds, ducks, turtles, fish or possibly a white swan or bald eagle; or enjoy a cruise up the coast for a self-guided architectural tour of the waterfront homes in the canoe or rowboat provided. You may wish to lounge on the large sundeck/dock overlooking Sandusky Bay. This waterside area is great for sunbathing, shore fishing, or just watching the watercraft cruise by. After taking in a beautiful sunset over the bay the large fire pit is ideal for a bonfire. You may sit around the fire and roast hot dogs and marshmallows on the sticks provided.

About Robert Critchfield

I am the owner and property manager. I take pride in maintaining the Lake house's five star property rating.

Why Robert Critchfield chose Ohio

The Lake House offers one of the best locations on Cedar Point Road with privacy and spectacular waterside views. This home also has many luxurious amenities that are not typically offered in a vacation rental home.

What makes this house unique

Three King Master suites (including the *Guest House available from May 1st through December 1st). A youth friendly detached *Game Room/ Kids Bedroom allows for kids to have a fun spot to hang out. (The *Game Room/Kids Bedroom is available from May 1st through December 1st). A private sandy beach on Lake Erie and a picturesque backyard abutting Sandusky Bay. Located less than three miles from Cedar Point.

Beautiful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. I would love to come back here to stay in this house once more some day. I wish the rent per day were little less as compared to similar vacation homes else where.

Perfect place for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property, we were there for New Years so we didn't get use any of the outside amenities. Our group of 10, was coming from a few different cities across Ohio and Michigan and was a great spot in the middle. The house provided everything we needed to just relax and have a good time.

Rent This Lakefront House !!

  • 5 of 5

This Lakefront House is one of the best places I have ever stayed!

This house has tons of space, a great location, a great layout, and it has every amenity imaginable; but that is not the best part. The owner has carefully, and artfully, incorporated salvaged materials into the interior of the house. It is all very tastefully done so that you do not notice that they are salvaged materials until you take a closer look. For example he used sailboat masts as posts, main level walls are lined with slate, the bar is a piece off of the stern of a boat.

I cannot describe it all, and photos do not do it justice. You have to see it!!

The owner was very cooperative with us, and those in our group who met him said he was a very nice man. Everything he said in his listing was spot on. The place was clean and ready upon arrival and well stocked with utensils, games, televisions, WiFi and other things.

Everyone in the group was very impressed with this Lake House.

Rent This Lake House!!
