Come visit our beautiful country home located in Vermilion, Ohio and get away from it all. Our home is situated on 1 acre on a quiet street and backs up to over 40 acres of pristine forest. You will feel like you are 100's of miles away from it all but you are only about 5 minutes from Lake Erie, downtown Vermilion or state route 2 that can take you to Cedar Point in 20 minutes or Downtown Cleveland in around 30. Relax on our swing on the over sized wrap around front porch and enjoy the cool summer breeze. Or sit out back in the beautiful screened in wooden Gazebo that is attached to our 400sq ft deck. You can be at the multiple marinas located in Vermilion, downtown's quaint shops and ice cream parlors, or the beach in all around 5 minutes.

Very comfortable, kid & adult friendly house on a quiet country lane near beautiful Vermilion!

  • 5 of 5

Although our party was adults only, we immediately saw that the house is furnished and setup to accommodate a wide variety of families, especially ones with infants to young children to teens. The spacious main floor boasts a play room, a formal dining room, a fine TV room, breakfast nook, kitchen and laundry facilities. Four bedrooms with two full bathrooms upstairs with a spacious master bed & bath. The deck outside the breakfast area is very nice with a table for 8 as well as a screened in gazebo with seating. Close to Vermilion downtown with all its amenities and lake shore, groceries, restaurants and to Hwy 2 for a straight shot to Cleveland metro are and airport. All in all, a very charming and comfortable house in a fantastic area.

Property was very clean and the owner a pleasure to work with in terms of all arrangements. I would definitely recommend this to others.

Quiet neighborhood, awesome amenities, ample space, and close to enough to all the fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at the Vermilion Country Escape. The house was clean, full of everything we needed, even more than we needed. Perfect for families with multiple age ranges, yet could still cater to those w/o children. House was easy to find and close enough to town and surrounding activities, Cedar Point amusement park, Kelley's Island, etc, that we were able to make the most of our time in Ohio.

Wonderful home for vacationing with kids!

  • 4 of 5

We were so glad the home was available for when we were on vacation. The play room was very spacious for the girls to play in. The kitchen had everything we needed to fix our meals. We all fit around the dining table, but ate outside most of the time because it was so nice out. It was great having the Historic Vermilion city close by to go and explore as long as the beach. The most we traveled while there was 30 minutes and the drive wasn't bad. Historic downtown is very similar to Gilmore Girls.

Very relaxing family home

  • 5 of 5

We have 3 young children, I was kind of nervous staying at someones house and having to be on constant guard, not wanting to replace any items that could easily break. When we initially walked through the front door we were greeted by a lovely playroom, suitable for boys and girls of a variety of ages. The huge back and front yard, were also such a welcome retreat. The kitchen had all the supplies needed for cooking our family meals, and the beautiful deck and gazebo were perfect for enjoying our family chow time. My ten year old son had broken his arm our second day on vacation while zip-lining at a relatives house, so he REALLY enjoyed the cable TV, and the ultra comfy lazyboy chair. The beds in EVERY room were very comfortable, we all slept just as if we were in our very own beds. I would recommend this home to families, or just a big group of friends. My dad, who came and hung out with us stated it would be the perfect place for their gourmet club to get together for the weekend. We cant wait to plan our next family vacation, it will definitely include this gorgeous getaway home!!

Great house for family with kids

  • 5 of 5

This house is large and clean and comfortable with everything you need for small children, like cribs, high chair and toys. We had 7 adults, 2 small children and a baby and had plenty of room. We had fun just hanging out at the house but did some day trips. The Cleveland Zoo is great! The beach at Lakeview Park was huge with facilities and playgrounds and is just 10 minutes east on rte. 6. We liked eating barbecue at The Pit. We enjoyed Romps mini golf and ice cream too. There is lots to do in the area and the house is great to come back to and relax.

Great Summer Respite on visit to Oberlin

  • 5 of 5

Ron was an excellent host. We were attending performances of our daughter at Oberlin College and stayed at Ron's home in Vermilion for a week. The home is located in a quiet location about 16 easy miles from Oberlin . While there we saw deer and a wild turkey. We cooked some Lamb ribs on Ron's smoker and ate in the screened gazebo. Was that good! Ron's home is very close to Lake Eire and we had a fun dining experience at the Quaker Lube Restaurant, in downtown Vermillion. Great Wings ...(Young people might like dining inside and older folks should dine outside). Ron recommended Granny's ice cream downtown. Granny's was great. (Ask for only one scoop... they are large!) We traveled to Cleveland and visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Cleveland Art Museum... both are worth a visit.

Ron's home was clean and well maintained and Ron has a treasure trove of information about places to see and visit in and around Vermillion ( Check out the Lakewood Park Rose Garden and while there take a dip in Lake Eire. We would recommend this property to our friends and relatives. Thank you Ron for sharing your home.
