Port Clinton Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-5)

Beautiful, very clean, nonsmoking third floor condo located at the Waterfronts Resorts right over the drawbridge from the Jet Express, your fastest access to world famous Put-In-Bay. Our condo includes a queen size bedroom set (new Serta mattress) in the master bedroom, washer and dryer, air conditioning, and a full kitchen including dishwasher and microwave oven. In addition, there is an enclosed harbor room with sleeper couch and gorgeous view of the Lake Erie Islands, our private beach and the Port Clinton Yacht Club Marina. The lake is only 20 feet from our condo, just open the windows and enjoy the sound of the waves! Our large heated pool includes built-in bench seats for the adults and a zero-entry feature and water sprayers for the small children. Our hot tub comfortably seats eight people. The pool and hot tub are traditionally open from Memorial Day weekend thru the first weekend after Labor Day (weather permitting). Charcoal grills can be found on the common areas which allows for setting up chairs and tables for outdoor dining or pure relaxation. The grounds of the resort are very kid friendly and includes plenty of green space and a playground as well. The sandy beach area is protected by a cove so that the shallow water and sandbars make ideal swimming conditions in the lake for small children.

Access to water sports abound, with fishing charters and dock rental for your boat across the street and within walking distance. Use the beautiful private beach with lounge chairs provided to relax and enjoy the sun. The downtown Port Clinton area is within walking distance and includes restaurants, shopping and night life. You can park your car for the week and start having fun!

Many other attractions are minutes away, including Marblehead Lighthouse, Mon Ami and Firelands wineries, historic Johnson's Island, African Safari Wildlife Park, Monsoon Lagoon Waterpark, Lakeside resort community, East Harbor State Park where you can take long hikes along the beautiful historic beach and relive history reading the plaques that recount the history of the Lake Erie shoreline.

The Jet Express ferry boat is a short two minute walk across the drawbridge from our resort. They are advertised as the fastest way to get to South Bass Island and Put-N-Bay. Once on the islands, you can rent a bike or golf cart and tour South Bass Island with its wineries, caves, restaurants, bars and many shops. The Division of Wildlife operates a fish hatchery on the island which is very educational and ideal for kids. Also on the island is the historic Perry's Monument which stands 352 feet tall. It was established to honor those who fought during the War of 1812. Experience the breathtaking view from the observation deck. On a clear day Canada, Cleveland and the surrounding islands are visible. Two other ferry boats are located nearby on Catawba and Marblehead that allow you to take your vehicle over to the islands.

The birdwatchers in your family will love to visit Magee Marsh Wildlife Area. This 2,202-acre controlled hunting area is located 17 miles west of Port Clinton. Spring and fall migrations are spectacular at Magee Marsh, with more than 300 species of birds being recorded in the area. Bald eagles, peregrine falcons, osprey, and a large variety of hawks can be seen at Magee Marsh during the spring. A forested beach ridge located on Magee provides a critical feeding and resting habitat for more than 150 species of migrating songbirds, including 36 species of warblers, as they rest and refuel before continuing on their journey. An accessible boardwalk that meanders through this beach ridge provides some of the best bird watching opportunities in the Midwest.

If you have kids and are looking for a little more excitement, world famous Cedar Point amusement park, with 17 roller coasters, live entertainment, kids' area and a water park, is located about 20-25 minutes away. Other indoor waterparks in the Sandusky area include Kalahari and Great Wolf Lodge.

Note, our condo complex does not have elevators, it is stairway accessible.

Check-in at 3:00pm, check-out at 10:00am.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd year coming back with my 11 year old son. We originally decided to visit the area for Cedar Point, however as we have become more acclimated to the area, we have learned that their is so much to do in addition to the amusement park. This is always my sons favorite vacation. The condo itself is in a perfect location. You can walk to the Jet Express which takes you to Put in Bay, walk to restaurants, and walk to the marina across the street which offers charter boats for fishing. This unit is right on Lake Erie. The pool and hot tub on the premises are always clean and refreshing. Best of all, the owner is wonderful to deal with. He returns phone calls immediately and explains everything in detail. We will be coming back for the 4th time next summer. Obviously I highly recommend this property .

Great family property and locale

  • 4 of 5

Easy to work with owner. Propert within walking distance to jet express. Private beach and large shallow area for kids. Playground with lightning fast slides. My 3 yr old loved it. Nice pool and plenty of seating. Friendly neighbor atmosphere. Room is a little dated but clean and has all needed amenities. We would rent there again.
