Lakeside Marblehead Lodge Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom & 3 bathroom; Sleeps 19+ with efficiency.

2016 is the 15th season for our Lighthouse Lodge located in the area of the Marblehead Peninsula that is rural, “country”, and quiet—and less than two miles great waterfront restaurants and the 163 commercial strip. Please take a look at our virtual tour (updated 3.31.2015) by searching — tours (dot) gotrobo (dot) 56536. Or, first visit us at our site — LighthouseLodgeOH (dot) net. If you want to see the rates now, scan down to the fourth paragraph area that is headed “2016 RATES—“.

Remember that you can call anytime or email us through our own site which will hold your email address private and secure. Typically we respond within three hours, so please call if you do not receive a timely response from us. Unlike most other area businesses, our rates do not soar for festivals, bike week, birding week, Walleye Festival, Christmas in July or December, or any other event or national holiday. Please call at your convenience to talk with us about making the Lighthouse Lodge your vacation rental. We recommend that you see our own website, walk in and around the Lodge in the virtual tour, and contact us directly in a simple phone call to keep all your private, personal information safe and secure. Our phone number is in the right column under Jeff's photo (click on the tab). Again, visit us at — LighthouseLodgeOH (dot) net.

Unfortunately, the quotes provided though this site’s format are such that the system does not work with our simple rate policy. To determine the rate for any stay, potential guests can easily calculate the Lodge rate to see if it is within their budget by referring to details within this listing or at our own website page titled "Rates". Scan down to the next paragraph heading “2016 RATES—“. Or, please call us for a quote -- Jeff, (the owner of the rental) will speak with you.

2016 RATES—

MINIMUM TWO NIGHT STAYS. (Sunday through Thursday).

Up to 6 people; $240 nightly (minimum); $40 per person/per night.

Each additional person — $40 per person, per night.

MINIMUM WEEKEND STAYS. (Friday, Saturday).

Up to 6 people; $300 nightly (minimum); $50 per person/per night.

Each additional person — $50 per person, per night.


Up to 4 people — $120 per night (minimum).

Non-refundable 50% Deposit holds Lodge for your rental. A completed Booking Confirmation form usually accompanies the deposit. Personal checks, Certified Banker's checks, and cash are accepted. Local bed tax is included in rate. Please call at your convenience to discuss any questions you may have.

Dogs may be considered, and a phone call is necessary to talk with Jeff about your pet (or pets). Having boarded only once our Springer Spaniel, the late "Boner", in the mid-90's at $25 per night, we understand the value and importance of traveling with one's pet. After speaking with you about your pet, Jeff may decide to welcome your dog at a cost of $20 per night.

At the Lighthouse Lodge, we welcome and accommodate small groups, multi-family groups, and very large groups. Antique collectors, birders, shooters for the national matches, artists, fisherman, hunters, and families enjoy the décor of this one of a kind place. Reunions, parties (bachelor and bachelorette--bring your own music!), business gatherings, Girl Scout troops, and church groups are very satisfied with the Lodge's space and atmosphere. The Lighthouse Lodge is at the heart of local attractions and parks-- Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Johnson's Island, Lakeside, East Harbor and Port Clinton are all nearby.

We have an upstairs studio/efficiency off our sign studio that is available separately or in addition to Lodge rental. More information and photos for the efficiency are available at LighthouseLodgeOH (dot) net.

We have been here since 1995 with our sign business and have been active in the community with our Lighthouse Lodge since 2002. The Lighthouse Lodge is a great vacation home that can be yours.

(Today our response time dropped from "minutes" to "hours" today because we were not receiving text or email notices from this site any of the several inquiries. The problem was resolved today, and we expect our response time to return to its regular average of minutes.)

(ps--Bed tax is 3%--has been since instituted in Ottawa County. Some guests are frustrated when they learn this because they have been charged anywhere from 6% to 7.25% other summers at other places. There is no state tax on a vacation rental like ours. Ohio does tax sleeping accommodations with five or more sleeping rooms for less than 30 days stay.)

About Jeff & Lisa Bumbera--Owners/Managers (residing near your next vacation rental)

I am a lifelong professional commercial artist and have used my abilities as a designer to create a Lodge that offers a unique lodging experience. I remain a paper/pencil guy. I believe in handshakes and phone conversations. I look forward to talking with potential guests and working with you to establish the Lighthouse Lodge as your vacation rental.

The Lighthouse Lodge is a 'live' project, changing and growing with antiques and art that are added regularly. I wanted to create the most unusual and comfortable place for groups to gather, and I know that the Lighthouse Lodge is exactly that.

If you want to know more about me, you can find me at LinkedIn--Jeff Bumbera.

Lisa was a high school English teacher for almost 20 years. She does not correct anyone's writing or speech, and she too often fails to proofread. She fully expects people to read this listing, view our website and virtual tour--then ask questions. Lisa wants your visit to be great, so please ask questions while you here. Lisa is cooperative, flexible, and willing to help. (If you need a bit of....something, please ask.)

We are vacation property owners who are HERE to help make your stay pleasant and easy.

Jeff & Lisa Bumbera--Owners/Managers (residing near your next vacation rental) purchased this lodge in 1993

Why Jeff & Lisa Bumbera--Owners/Managers (residing near your next vacation rental) chose USA

The Lighthouse Lodge is located where access to all the things I have enjoyed and loved about Ottawa County and my home from childhood to today are easily accessible. We have wifi so when you return to the Lodge from your excursions, you will have wifi to use to share your photos of your day.

Some people love their hometown. Here, I feel the variety in Ottawa County makes it so attractive, and it is easy to enjoy everything when the Lodge is your vacation home.

What makes this lodge unique

The Lodge is spacious and comfortable -- an interesting place to relax, meet, share your experiences at any of the attractions or on the shores of Lake Erie. Any visit to the area parks and preserves will lighten your spirit.

Again, our rates include sales tax and remain stable throughout the year, and there are never any hidden fees. We never share your email address. Save your privacy. You may contact us through our website. Check the calendar here, visit our website, view our virtual tour, and call us.

Good luck to you and your group, Rich.
