About John Rader
We were born and raised in Findlay Ohio and have two children who live and work in the Port Clinton area along with our two grandchildren that love playing and swim at our cottage. My wife and I have sold real estate for thirtysix years and own the Re/max for Ottawa Co. We moved to Port Clinton 15 years ago and have had a great experience with all the opportunities and amenities the area has to offer.This is our personal home 8 months out of the year and in the summer we move to Lakeside where our grandchildren also enjoy.This is a wonderfull place to visit while vacationing in our area as it takes you back to the ways we lived in the 1800s.
John Rader purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why John Rader chose Port Clinton
We always wanted to own a house on the lake but we though we could never afford it and then a twist of fate gave us a chance to own our little piece of the lake through a real estate partnership that included converting an old hotel called char-nel shores into residential lots which we have since sold.Our house is all that is left from the original property.We have added a garage and 4 seasons -bedroom,new granite kitchen,2porches,shower,new walls and carpet.The furniture is not what you would expect to find in a rental as we have many amish pieces with upscale beds .new refrigerator,dishwasher,and new washer and dryer.
What makes this Cottage unique
Not only does our house have a sandy beach but we have great views of the beautifull sunsets. We are also just one mile from Kroger and Wal-Mart. We also have over 100 restraunts in the summer within a 10 mile area.You can see 4 Lake Erie island from back yard

Second year in a row and love it...!!!
My wife and I love this very quaint lake home! Excellent location for all we need and wonderfully peaceful. We meet the owner this year as we were checking out and he's a very nice guy who also let us in on some changes he's making to the property. We're looking forward to next year.! Thanks again...!!!
We stayed here with friends and 4 kids, ages 4-12. Very convenient location, Kroger is right down the road maybe a mile and Walmart is about a mile and a half. It’s close to the Jet Express as well. The house is cozy. The concrete patio on the lake gets extremely slippery when it’s wet due to the algae, we had a couple falls on it, so be very careful. Unfortunately the water was too high to enjoy the little beach, but the lake is just very high at this time. We had a lot of rain during our stay, so the driveway flooded. It didn’t drain the water and was to our knees. John came over and set up drain pump and fixed the issue. He came back again the next day and broomed the rest of the water away. If it rains during your visit just be mindful of this and park your cars on higher ground (entrance of drive and sloped driveway by garage). The kitchen had everything we needed. The lake is great, especially for kids, sandy bottom with gentle slope and deepest point of about 5.5 ft all the way to the bouy. The bugs were really bad in the evening so take your bug spray. Overall, we had a fun time! Thank you, John.
Location was great and we found everything we needed to have an enjoyable time with family.
Great stay on Lake Erie
We had great time on the property. We had our 3 boys plus our daughter in law and my mid son’s girlfriend all on the same weekend!! Everyone had a great time. John was great and we look forward to the upgrades he is planning for the property. Will definitely be back next year.
Fun family vacation
A great lakefront cottage!
This is a great lakefront cottage! It was advertised accurately and filled with character! It was perfect for our visit to Cedar Point, the Islands, and Port Clinton area. We definitely plan to stay there again when we visit the area next year.
Centrally located, close to downtown Port Clinton, Jet Express Ferry to go to the islands, wineries, shopping, parks, close to golf course, restaurants and only 20 mins. to Cedar Point.
