Welcome! This waterfront vacation cottage has been under our ownership since 2012. When we purchased, the goal was to keep the historical ambiance and features that had made it such a great place in the past but to continually add improvements to enhance the lake experience even more.
Among these changes have been whole-house air conditioning, a renovated kitchen including a new range, flooring, lower cabinets, lighting and also, for hot water security, a new larger water heater. Additionally, it's is now pet-friendly so you can bring the whole crew.
New features for 2016 include a partial renovation of the main bathroom and a new grill outside.
The cottage maintains its many comfortable features including a fireplace for the sometimes windy or chilly Lake Erie evenings; a historic bar room to talk and unwind (BYOB); one full bath and two convenient half-baths; a spectacular front patio right on the lake for breakfast as you welcome the sunrise (see video); have lunch al fresco; sunbathe; have barbeque for dinner and enjoy the sunset; and later, for star gazing, dreaming, and fellowship by the lake.
I'm an architect who grew up in the area and wanted a place for my far-flung siblings and family to be able to return to. But when we're not here it's a chance to share the lake experience with others.
Ted purchased this cottage in 2012
The view is incredible, and you are right on the water in this house. The open floor plan on the ground level really takes advantage of this relationship. Additionally, the bedrooms are very private upstairs and have some of the best views.
The waterfront location and convenient access to Cedar Point. Additionally, the house has 4 bedrooms and is pet-friendly.
We stayed at the Cape Cod Lakefront Cottage after July 4th weekend.It was very clean and decorated in a nautical theme throughout the entire house. Very quaint. Ted was very accommodating to our needs. Beds were comfortable but a little hot in the morning summer sun. We brought our dog also. Loved the bar to hang out around. My boys played pool also. Plenty of bathrooms for 7 of us (even though there is only one tub/shower). Lots of room to sit and play games at. The back patio has a great view of the lake, can't get any closer. We visited the Huron Lighthouse, took Miller Ferry to Put in Bay and hung out at the Nickle Plate Beach for the day. Thanks Ted, I would definitely refer my family and friends.
Our extended family of 8 met at the Cape Cod Lakefront Cottage in mid June 2016. Our experience was wonderful! The home was clean and well maintained, the main level spacious and exactly as described in the listing. Our view was spectacular and every morning was spent with coffee on the rear patio watching the waves and sunrise. Both beaches were wonderful, the neighbors friendly and welcoming. All in all the best vacation in a very long time...we will be making this an annual event. Ted was very responsive to questions and exceptionally easy to work with. The icing on the cake was being able to bring my German Shepherd on vacation and seeing how well received she was! Thanks Ted!
This is such a charming, comfortable place to vacation! It is right on Lake Erie with its beautiful ever changing colors. Plenty of room to relax with family and friends. I especially like the way the house is decorated. Thank you, Ted. My family, friends and I fell in love with this place! My only suggestion would be to add a few comfortable lawn chairs on the patio. Otherwise.....perfect! I have recommended this place to several friends.
My family had planned our family vacation at this cottage over a year ago. A few weeks before our stay at this wonderful cottage, my husband passed away. My kids, grandchildren and I decided we would keep to the plan and have our week here. I'm so glad we did. It was the perfect place to spend together. The cottage itself is so charming and there's nothing like watching the sun come up in the morning with a cup of coffee or watching it go down with a glass of wine. We even were mesmerized by a storm coming across the lake. The bar became a gathering place for the adults after the kids were put to bed. Thanks Ted for sharing this gem with us. I plan to stay here again.
This place is completely charming inside and magnificent outside. You are right on the water and the ever changing colors and sounds of the water will relax even the most stressed out person.
There are beautiful views from inside also. This cottage is over 100 years olds and has many original features. Even after 2 weeks, I was still finding cool things that I'd missed earlier. Everything was spotlessly clean and you have all you will need there, even matching dishes. No need to bring anything.
My little dog loved it too. We took walks around the cute neighborhood and collected driftwood and stones like none other at the beach. The people we met were all friendly and there are several really good restaurants in town for Lake Perch.
Ted, the landlord, is amazing. So considerate and thoughtful. Thank you, Ted.
All in all, it was the absolute most relaxing vacation in a perfect spot. I did not want to leave.
The house was spotlessly clean, comfortable and charming. We have been to the area twice before and refused the lodging we had booked so we were concerned when booking this cottage. It was perfect. The pictures do not show the charm or actual comfort of the 100+ year old house. As stated in the listing there has been updating and as with any house of this age you can see that updating is continuing and there are some minor cosmetic imperfections with repairs in the process. Nothing that would take away from you comfort in this home. We are already talking with friends about returning so we can share our new find. The lake is at your back door and it looks as if you are on a boat while looking out the window from inside. The owner, Ted, could not have been any more accommodating and after learning we were in a car accident he called the housekeeper to check in on us. We spoke with her once and she couldn't have been any nicer.
Thank you for your kindness.
