Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in North East - Light on the Lake Beachcomber

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

This Light on the Lake Beachcomber apartment opens directly to some of the deepest beach, approximately 50 yards, in the entire Erie area. The apartment offers a spacious living room and a kitchen. The apartment is in the lower level of our home.

The deck overlooking the beach features its own dining table with deck chairs. The property includes a 30-foot high lighthouse (not available to guests). It is a modern construction but not for navigational purposes.

Several charter fishing boat concessions are next door, at the North East Marina. The marina includes a restaurant, if no one wants to cook. One winery is less than a mile away and others are an easy drive. Very flat roads allow for easy bicycling.

About Dennis & Marcia Groce

We are retired enginer and teacher, active in our faith and church. We have two adult sons but no grandchildren yet. Dennis grew up in the St. Louis area, and Marcia grew up outside of New Haven, Connecticut. We met in college and have been happily married for more than 40 years.

Dennis & Marcia Groce purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Dennis & Marcia Groce chose Great Lakes Pennsylvania

We were actually just looking for a place near the water after retirement. We loved the house and location, and the previous owners had begun the apartment rental and bed n breakfast, and had some commitments already for the coming season. So we decided to give it a try, and it has been a nice fit for us.

What makes this apartment unique

Our guests have the opportunity to relax in chairs on the decks, beach, or walk as far as they want in either direction. When the weather allows, guests are welcome to have evening beach fires in our fire ring. We have the marshmallow sticks! A pleasant summer evening at the firs and under the stars is a real treat. The living room and both bedrooms feature windows with views of the beach and Lake Erie. If you want to take a day trip, Niagara Falls is 90 minutes away. Wineries are as close as a quarter mile down the road, with many more within 10 miles or so.

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Overall not impressed. I will give credit where credit is due , the view is awesome. The downside is that there is dead fish everywhere and the smell is aweful. The beach is extremely rocky so definitely bring water shoes. The outside porch had spiders and cobwebs all over it. (Disgusting) The landscaping is overgrown and the decor is from 1970. Bring your VHS tapes because it does offer a vcr and a 20" tv. We left the house cleaner than we found it and a week later we were deducted funds because of not cleaning to their specifications. We had family over from Spain and the first question their 4 year old asked was "Do all beaches smell like dead fish and sewer water?" You get what you pay for . Very nice people.

Great Girls Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean when we arrived. There was ample space for myself and my girls to relax in or out. We enjoyed putting together a puzzle on a rainy afternoon, and watched a movie provided! Beds were comfy - I get cold feet so would suggest slippers as the main flooring is part concrete. Kitchen was fully loaded with everything we needed. Less packing makes for more room to pack shopping bags!!! Went on a fishing charter at North East Marina which is "right" next door! Walked back with our catch! Fire pit on the beach a relaxing spot to watch the sunset or just sit and watch the water and boats! Played cards on the tiered deck - really beautiful location. If you want the Marriott - go there. If you want to enjoy a vacation away from home with all the amenities and gracious hosts - This place is heaven.

Not Impressed

  • 2 of 5

So we recently rented the apartment on lower level. We did not stay upstairs at the bed and breakfast. So this review is for people looking to rent the lower level and what to expect as I was not informed what exactly to expect. Lets just say you get what you pay for. The price was cheap so I wasn't expecting much. The view is gorgeous. and its quaint and quiet. Prepare to spend your last day cleaning everything down to washing the sheets if you want your cleaning fee back. If not then prepare to spend cleaning fee to not worry about it. The cleaning list is very detailed. Expect lots of spiders. I didn't see mice but there were mouse droppings and urine under kitchen sink and in master bedroom on the bed under sheet (yuck). Lots of cob webs in all corners. I counted 6 spiders in master bedroom closet. It is a basement so it's very damp and musky smelling. There are lots of rules you have to recycle 7 sort trash (not a bad thing) I'm not a smoker but one of the guests with us is and they couldn't even smoke outside on deck they had to walk to road or beach. And then there was even comments made about that. I am an ex smoker who personally can not stand the smell of smoke anymore but really saying it was gonna smell up the place cause they would bring the smell in on their clothes is a bit obnoxious. "Quiet time" is 11 (not a bad thing). I will not be back to this place nor recommend it. There is NOTHING to do in the area everything is like 30 min away. I was more worried with the rules than relaxed on my vacation. Mind you I'm not a party-er I brought my 6 month old son I just wanted to relax but I felt like I was being watched 24/7 This is also my first experience at a bed and breakfast so maybe this is how they are. I don't really know but I will not be doing this again. I didn't eat the breakfast so I really can not rate that.

Owner's Response: We're sorry that our guest was unhappy with some aspects of our apartment, but we still appreciate the feedback. We do try our best to assure that the apartment is cleaned appropriately before each new guest arrives. As our reviewing guest pointed out, it is a basement apartment, but that's not an excuse for anything. We intend that the apartment be as clean as one would expect of any living space. The fact is that lakefront properties can be humid and be attractive to spiders, but we do take measures to control and eradicate inside the apartment. The detailed instructions that the guest mentioned are for each guest's protection. Without detailed instructions, guests are either left to decide for themselves what to clean, or to pay a higher professional cleaning fee. The requirement for smoking locations is for the protection of guests in other parts of our property. Smoke from the lower level can rise through the deck flooring and enter other rooms or be a nuisance to others on the upper decks. We are not sure why the guest felt she was being watched "24/7". We don't have time to do that, and wouldn't if we did have the time. We suspect it is because we noticed someone smoking (once) where they shouldn't, and respectfully asked that they move to the beach. Frankly, we would do the same thing again if we noticed inappropriate smoking, and we think our guests appreciate our concern. We encourage guests to let us know (preferably while they are still here) about problems they may find. We will take steps to address their valid concerns. Again, we do appreciate the feedback, late though it be. We will try to do better for out part! We could say a lot about things to do in our neighborhood, but that would be a chamber of commerce speech. Summary: swimming in the lake; walking on the beach; evening beach fires; charter fishing next door in marina; miniature golf and regulation golf; wineries; small town shops, museums, and resturants. All within 5 miles of us.
