    About this property

    Little House on the Lake Great Place, Great Price!

    Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and patio
    *Memorial week/weekend just opened back up! Contact us to book an amazing holiday get away on the Lake!* We invite you to come and 'get-away' for a week (or two) at this cozy home located on a 1/2 acre of lakefront property and situated at the end of a quiet residential street. Our summer cottage is family owned and operated and we believe in greeting all of our guests and making you feel right at home. 'Little House on the Lake' is the perfect retreat for a small family or adults vacationing together. A beautiful view of Lake Erie can be seen just out the front door and the large open yard is perfect for various summertime activities. Docks are also available to rent for our boat owning guests. They are located within walking distance from the home as well as a free public boat ramp less than 2 minutes away. Not a boat owner? Don't worry, we are also conveniently located between the many boat ferries if you choose others to navigate the sea for you. A better location for summertime fun cannot be found! Our 'Little House on the Lake' is only a few miles from the famous Marblehead Lighthouse. We are also close to area beaches, restaurants and 'Monsoon Lagoon' the most cost effective outdoor waterpark around. It takes approximately 30 minutes for our guests to get to Cedar Point & Soak City by car and the Erie Islands; Kelley's, Middle Bass, South Bass (Put-in-Bay) and Pelee by boat. If you need a break from the Lake, why not go shopping? Local businesses offer some other great catches as well. We are 5 minutes from the quaint downtown city of Marblehead which features numerous little specialty shoppes. Shop while you walk along side a beautiful view of the Lake. The quiet and relaxing Lakeside community is also within an arm's reach of our place. Hours can be spent enjoying the countless activities going on inside their gates. Fishermen: check out the 'Western Basin' known for the most productive fishing on the Great Lakes. Walleye, Perch and Bass can be caught in large numbers throughout the year. Many of our guests have caught their fill of fish without even leaving the front yard! Sunbathers or swimmers: if you are brave, jump into the water & sandy area right in the front yard or visit the nearby beach if you prefer for plenty of fun in the sun. Activity seeking visitors: play a game of volleyball or golf, hike, run, boat or just site see and take in the many beautiful sights of this region. Tastetesting folks: fill your bellies with a different kind of food every night - Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, vegetarian or visit the steak houses, sports bars, fish and chips spots, wineries, mom and pops homemade food joints or even the beloved chili dog and ice cream quick stop. For the rest of you: just kick back, relax and enjoy a good book by the water's edge. We must note - if you are looking for fancy, we are not the place for you. If, however, you want something clean, quiet, cozy and relaxing... we are just that. We also realize that during hard economic times most folks do not have money to throw around. Instead of charging some outrageous price for the week like many others do, we offer our home at a very reasonable rate. We encourage you to go ahead and compare... we bet you will not find another house on the water with so much to do at such a low price. This is why we believe many of our guests return again and again. Keywords: House

    Beautiful views at the Little House on the Lake

    We enjoyed our week at the little house on the lake. The scenery was quiet and refreshing. There is a dock where you can sun or fish and a small sandy area for kids to play or where you can use the fire pit. The water in front of the cottage is perfect for canoeing or paddle boating and has easy access to the larger part of Lake Erie. The floors and bedding were clean. There were a lot of areas beside, behind and under that could use more attention. I would suggest that you bring additional linens, towels and washcloths. We chose to use the option of having the linens and towels provided ($50) but had to go to the laundry mat to get through the week (there were three of us). There were no linens for the futons. Cottage needs some updating (windows, screens and doors, etc). The kitchen and appliances are tiny but functional. The bathroom sink is a little challenging. The internet service is good. There is a covered porch at the front of the house that is great for morning coffee. We had a nice relaxing stay. It would have been helpful to have had an informational sheet regarding where things were located, how to use the tv and internet (password), what to do with garbage, where to find keys for the doors, contact phone numbers, etc. I was able to get the needed information by contacting or texting the owner but a quick handy reference would have been great. Overall, it seems the little house by the lake is a great for accommodating vacationers who desire a fishing/water-sport cottage with easy access to Lake Erie.

    5/5 Excellent

    A little slice of Paradise...

    We rented the Little House on the Lake for a family reunion two weeks ago and it was perfect. The huge yard, fishing out front, fire pit in the midst of the sandy area, comfy porch furniture, and the view made for many "it doesn't get much better than this" moments.

    5/5 Excellent

    Value and convenience

    Great location, dogs loved it, and we must have caught 50 fish between us all week just from the edge of the property. Tiny kitchen fridge but as long as you bring a cooler for your beverages it’s a short drive for ice to keep it replenished :)

    4/5 Good

    Great little getaway place on the lake.

    Just returned home from a week-long stay at The Little House on the Lake. Very relaxing, lots to see and do in the area. Great restaurants, quaint little shops, plenty to keep you busy. Jackie and Darin were awesome hosts! Any concerns we had were quickly addressed and they were always willing to help with questions or reccomendations on places to eat or shop. Great place to come and recharge your batteries!

    5/5 Excellent
