Just steps from a private Lake Erie beach, we are the second house from the lake, on a quiet road -- closer to the lake than some lakefront homes.

-- miles of Lake Erie coast, wineries, farm stands, vineyards

-- 11 wineries within 8 miles, open year round
-- quaint town with shops, spas, restaurants, grocery and drug stores just 3 miles

LADIES! WE LOVE LADIES GETAWAYS!
We are in the heart of Lake Erie Wine Country where wineries are open year round. Bella Day Spa is 3 miles away where you can reserve the party room and bring food and beverages for your ladies to meet up between spa appointments. Ask me about private wine glass painting classes (in-home), spa treatments (in-home) and for other ideas for your weekend.
WORLD CLASS FISHING
Fishermen and guided fishing tours are welcomed. Fishing here is fantastic nearly all year. Late fall and winter fishing for steelhead is world class and we are right between 16 Mile Creek (1.25 miles) & 20 Mile Creeks (1.75 miles), but also close enough to Walnut Creek (27 miles) and Elk Creek (34 miles) -- you can drive to where the fish are hitting. Bring your boat and launch from the North East Marina, 1.4 miles. My brothers are part of a competitive fishing team here. Ask me for Lake Erie fishing charter recommendations or guide recommendations for stream fishing.
Larger groups please see our other listing #336468. We have two vacation rentals on the same street -- just 3 homes apart. Rent BOTH homes to accommodate larger groups. Wonderful lodging for wedding guests. If my calendars are booked for the dates you need, ask me for other recommendations. I am happy to help.

-- our road runs nearly perpendicular to beach
-- easy walkable beach access (no bluff/cliff/staircase)
- easy access to the beach is unique for the area and important to consider for taking beach chairs, coolers and small watercraft to the beach
- natural Lake Erie shoreline with stones, sand, driftwood (please see photos here and on my other listing #336468). Beach shoes recommended.
Walk on the shore, look for beach glass and roast marshmallows at the beach as you take in beautiful sunsets. We head to the beach in the evenings with a cup of wine to view the sunset, a different show each evening. Some nights are cloudy with subtle color and some nights are brilliantly colorful. The kids happily play at the shoreline, in the creek, in the lake and warm-up to the campfire as they make s'mores. Treasures abound year round -- beach glass, beach stones, driftwood, and other ordinary objects weathered to 'treasure-status' by water and time. Kids find their imaginations here.
Launch your kayak or sailboard right from the beach, or your jet ski or larger boat from the Marina, 1.4 miles east. We launch our fishing boat from the North East Marina and then anchor it in front of our beach during the day so we can come and go. The marina also has short term space for boats parking or slips.
Bring your bikes. Kids can bike up and down our quiet street. Mature bicyclists can be more adventurous and take advantage of longer bike rides. Cycling tours and maps available at "Lake Country Bike" in North East.

When you call, you will speak to me -- Lynne Clement 814-566-4722. I am the founder/owner. I am always happy to answer your questions and make recommendations or referrals.
I'm Lynne Clement, a work-from-home soccer/dance/baseball mom. I love managing our rental properties and being a marketing consultant and property manager for other vacation rental owners. I am originally from Erie, PA, a graduate of both Penn State Main and Xavier University (Cincinnati). I worked at Procter & Gamble for 10 years and lived all over the country for 20 years. When our kids became school-aged, we moved back to Erie where they could have a place to call home and have close relationships with extended family.
Lynne Clement purchased this house in 2005
As a child, my favorite memories were of visiting this special beach community. My dad's best friend owned this little slice of heaven where kids could be kids enjoying nature, and adults were always in a good mood as they relaxed, recharged and enjoyed good company in a peaceful place. The tug of good memories was so strong that eventually my parents bought the house next door AND years later, my husband and I bought the other next door home so that we could provide happy traditions and memories for our kids! I have been coming to this place for 40+ years!
I wanted my kids to grow up enjoying the same memories I had... swimming at the beach, combing the shore for beach glass, outdoor bbqs, gathering driftwood for bonfires and s'mores, catching minnows and crayfish in the creek behind our house, walking barefoot on a dirt roads to the beach, skipping stones, floating on rafts, painting beach stones and building teepees from fallen tree branches. As an adult, I appreciate getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and entertaining friends or family and their kids just like I remember from those days as a child. Creating memories... it's what we help you do!
The "Beachy House" was a perfect spot for our family. We visited, walked the beach, skipped many rocks, collected and painted rocks and thoroughly enjoyed the backyard. The lake water was warm and perfect for enjoying family swims. They did some canoeing as well. The short walk to the beach from the house made it very convenient. We had nightly fires in the fire pit and made plenty of s'mores after our walk to the beach to watch the beautiful sunsets. The house had plenty of room for us all and our 17 year old grandson "owned" the loft. Our 6 year old grandson did not want to go home!! We did a wine tour in the area which was a lot of fun. I even got a great massage in town....wonderful. Looking forward to another stay next year. The house was well stocked and met all our needs. Lynne responded to us quickly when we had a small problem. Thanks Lynne!
We enjoyed our 6 night stay at this home. It was well stocked with plenty of towels and bedding, was clean and nicely updated. The private beach was rocky and the kids enjoyed playing in the end of the creek. We visited Waldameer, Erie Zoo, Presque Isle, the shops in North East and many local wineries. We really liked the area.
The Bohn family had a great time! The weather was perfect and the water was warm for our new activity.... Paddleboarding! Very relaxing time for all!
This small "cottage" has everything you could possibly need to have a relaxing time at the lake. The kitchen is well stocked. Plenty of towels, linens, blankets, etc. When we arrived most of the trash was full. Lynne was very responsive as they had just changed trash companies. She even volunteered to come pick some of the trash up! The house easily accommodated all of our friends and family for a graduation dinner. The fire pit was ready for use and there are plenty of chairs provided. The lake and beach are just steps away. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. Lynne went out of her way to provide us with extra parking if we needed plus explained what was part of the association grounds. She does a great job providing information for the area and is also there to help if you have any questions. The home has been updated and is just lovely. We hope to be back in the future.
Had a wonderful girls weekend. This home is absolutely adorable. Close to the beach and close to many wineries. Lynne was very easy to deal with and shared a lot of information. Now planning on becoming a yearly getaway!
Had a wonderful girls weekend away in this lovely home! Home was very nicely decorated and cozy! We took advantage of having a painting class on Friday evening and had a great time! Would recommend this home to anyone wanting a quaint quiet cozy stay! Also take advantage of the wineries so close to home. So much information given to us by the owner. We could not ask for more!
