Well furnished and meticulously cleaned and maintained by the owners, past visitors say that pictures can't convey how charming this cottage is. The large wrap-around enclosed porch with it's comfortable furnishings lets you relax with a drink or book in the lake breezes. A sandbox, climbing tree, and rope swing entertain children in the front yard. Lake Erie is 100 feet away with easy access by stairs. Located on a private lane with more barefoot vacationers than cars, the neighborhood invites visitors to unwind.

Why Carol Quinn chose Huron

We bought this cottage many years ago when our 10 children were young so we could all enjoy Lake Erie and the simple pleasures of summer.

Lovely weekend

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cottage by the lake. The location was perfect with a gorgeous view of the sunset, and Cedar Point in the distance. The house had everything we needed and the owners keep the place in immaculate condition. We enjoyed chatting with them about their property and the area. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway or a family trip.

Family get-together

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The cottage is well-equipped and maintained. The kayaks were a nice bonus for my adult children. The toddlers wore themselves out, playing on the lawn and in the lake. The owners, Carol and George, were great. We hope to come back next year.

Great time, Very Clean! Extremely organized. Everything was as described. The lake was warm, the swimming was great. You can even see Cedar Point from the dock. Taking out the canoe and kayaks was a lot fun. The kids had a blast. Thank you George and Carol for a great time. Cheers

Felt like going home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this charming home 5 years ago with our friends and 6 kids aged 8-13 at the time. We had an amazing time and were thrilled when it was available for our return trip. The kids are now much bigger and older, but we all had a great time. They still loved swimming in the (cold!) lake and climbing the tree. Cedar Point is a short drive away and always on our to do list. Carol and George are wonderful people and make you feel right at home, without being intrusive. The cottage is well equipped with everything you might need. Although there is no air conditioning, there is plenty of ventilation and we were all very comfortable. I would highly recommend this cottage and we hope to come back again!
