About Todd Netkowicz

Our family has been enjoying the “Beach Club” for several years now. Our first visit to the beach was by invitation from a close friend who owned a cottage on the beach. We immediately fell in love with all that the property had to offer…the location, the beach, and the cottages themselves. We knew that one day we would have our very own cottage on this beach. A few years later (2010) we were presented with the opportunity to purchase our first “beach” cottage…we jumped at opportunity. Our summers have never been the same since…filled with endless sun, sand, and fun. In the Spring of 2014, we were again presented with an opportunity to purchase a second “beach” cottage, this time we had a vision to create an opportunity for others to experience the “Beach Club”. We took the next 3 months fully restoring this old, outdated cottage into a gorgeous 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom single story beach themed home away from home for guests both near and far to enjoy.

Todd Netkowicz purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Todd Netkowicz chose Vermilion

This is a unique beach property that is one of a kind. The cottage (some like to call it a house) sits directly on its own private beach and a stones throw from Lake Erie. This is not like other lake properties where you get a glance of the lake and the beach from a small window and have to walk down a cliff to get to the beach…or depending on the way the winds blows; there may not be a beach at all. At the “Beach Club” there are no cliffs to maneuver and no obstacles impeding your view. It is as easy as walking out your front door and onto your own private beach filled with fun.

What makes this cottage unique

THE BEACH...There is beach volleyball for those who want to get a little sandy. Pick up a game of horse shoes or ladder ball to test your skill. The kids can spend hours building castles and playing in the sand. You can even search for shells and sea glass on the beach. Look for the rare red or blue pieces. Take a dip in the lake and/or relax on a float. For those looking for adventure, take a ride in a kayak up the river or test your balance on one of the paddle boards. At the end of the day relax on your covered porch or park yourself in a beach chair and watch some of the most breath taking sunsets that you’ll ever experience. In the evening, join us on the pier next to the fire pit as we roast marshmallows and make S’mores while watching the stars twinkle overhead.

Very organized and clean rental. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place! It was one of the best rentals we have been in. Organized with everything we needed to have a relaxing vacation. We had kids and they could have their own room and plenty of space for them to run around. The city of Vermilion was great with plenty of shops and restaurants to go to. Thankful we found this place and we will be back!

Cute cottage right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is really charming, with a great lake view. It was super clean, too. Check out the town of Vermilion for restaurants and the good winery nearby. I went with my girlfriends, but am thinking about taking my husband there next time.

Great time with family

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at the beach house and had an amazing time…the sunsets are as beautiful as everyone says. The beach is perfect and the accomodations are very clean and well maintained. There is everything you may need and then some. Todd was extremely gracious and very responsive. Hope to return with the family :)

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Vermilion for several years and have rented many different places. This beautifully, decorated cottage is our favorite place to stay. In fact, we have been renting this beauty for the past 3 summers. The cottage is very clean and located on it's own private beach. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need. The views and sunsets are absolutely gorgeous. Todd and his family are so welcoming and their hospitality just made our vacation even better. I highly recommend this cottage. We just love it.

Vermilion trip

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Todd's beach house was great. The home was very well equipped and had everything needed for an extended stay. It was very comfortable and very clean. We were there for 3 weeks visiting family and doing a some business. The location was close to everything. The sunsets were great! I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone planning a trip to the area.
