Cottage On Lake Erie - Historic Lake Home

Delightful beach vacation home with a sauna
Get away from it all at this charming Lake Erie retreat located 23 miles West of Erie, PA and 7 miles East of Conneaut, OH. Nestled on five private wooded acres with 365 feet of private beach, the cottage offers a fun-filled and relaxing get-a-way for any type of vacationer.

This 3 bedroom home is available year round. The property is bordered by Lake Erie to the North, Raccoon Creek to the East and to the South and West, the largest tract of undeveloped land on the South Shore of Lake Erie, the Pennsylvania State Gamelands/David M Roderick Wildlife Reserve. The new Lake Erie Bluff's park is also very near by.

Historical property built around 1909 as the Superintendent's house for the Elmwood Home for Boys. Completely renovated, the first floor has a spacious modern kitchen stocked with all equipment to prepare any meal - a foodies delight. The living room has a stone, wood burning fireplace to make any night feel cozy. A very large deck on the back is the perfect place to relax, listen to the waves, see the boats go by and watch the hummingbirds dart around the feeder. If the weather turns, the enclosed front porch allows you to take in the beauty.

The second floor has 3 bedrooms. One Queen and 2 Double Beds. The bathroom was also gutted and fully renovated in 1999. Garden style tub/shower combo.

Sisters get-a-way
What a wonderful cottage and beautiful piece of property. We found the home to be clean and beds were so comfortable. It was quiet and peaceful and we felt totally at peace. The private beach is wonderful and we found sea glass, unique rocks and driftwood to take home. The owners were so easy to work with! Close to Erie so we were able to do some shopping at Werner's Book Store, Relish, and Pressed Cafe and Books and several thrift stores. And of course chocolate shops! Highly recommend this property!

5/5 Excellent

Weekend getaway
We had a very relaxing time here. We just needed some different scenery to recharge after a hectic couple of months. The cottage was cozy and very clean. The property was quiet and private. It was nice to wake up and listen to the seagulls and waves crashing against the beach.
