Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Port Clinton

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

A vacation at the shore is closer than you think! Ohio's North coast, Lake Erie Shores & Islands offer year-round fun and relaxation for the whole family. Our newly renovated, 4-season Lake House is part of the unique community known as the Village at Water's Edge which includes a shared heated pool, hot tub, pavilion with wood burning fireplace, and access to private sandy beach.

Our home offers three bedrooms, each with its own full bath, large kitchen open to spacious family room (with sofa bed), laundry room and two-car attached garage to make your stay as comfortable as home!

Located a short walk from downtown Port Clinton and the Jet Express (the fastest way to the islands), a short drive to Cedar Point Amusement Park, Castaway Bay, Great Wolf Lodge and Kalahari Water Parks, Camp Perry Military Reservation (home of the National Matches, considered America's 'World Series of the Shooting Sports') and Lake Erie Marsh habitats (perfect for observing various migrating birds like shorebirds, songbirds and raptors), our home is the ideal accommodation for your next getaway with family or a group of friends.

About The Owner

21 years ago, the man that would become my husband and I traveled to Lake Erie on our first date where we enjoyed a beautiful day of sun and fun at Put-in-Bay. That became the first of many trips to the shores and islands of Lake Erie where we enjoyed local entertainers such as Pat Dailey sing his Island signature song, 'Put-in-Bay' at The Beer Barrel, the famous bar that went into the Guinness Book of Records as 'The World's Longest Bar' and Mike 'Mad Dog' Adams with his unique brand of music and comedy. While we enjoyed life on the island, our family grew to include two beautiful daughters who have learned to enjoy the beach just as much as us and we stayed mainland with our first vacation rental. We are sure you too will enjoy your visit to the Lake Erie Shores & Islands.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Ohio

With a mainland area that spans from Vermilion, Ohio to Genoa, Ohio and inland, plus Kelleys, Middle Bass and South Bass islands, the Lake Erie Shores & Islands boasts more than 150 miles of freshwater coastline and some of the greatest attractions around including Cedar Point amusement park which offers more rides and roller coasters than any other park on the planet, and has been voted 'Best Amusement Park in the World' for ten years in a row by Amusement Today readers.

What makes this house unique

Islands have always been an appealing escape, and Ohio’s Lake Erie Islands are no exception. Middle Bass Island has a tranquil atmosphere and refreshing natural landscape that lures visitors to its shore for carefree, relaxing getaways; conversely, South Bass Island, often referred to by its village name Put-in-Bay, offers unparalleled adventure around every corner. Kelleys Island, the largest of the three, offers a combination of the exquisite natural beauty with a milder blend of adventure and attractions.

Waterpark Capital of Ohio? Absolutely! Not counting Lake Erie - the area’s largest natural water park - the Lake Erie Shores & Islands boasts three primer water play lands. Castaway Bay, Great Wolf Lodge and Kalahari all combine entertainment and aquatic fun under one roof and attract visitors year-round with 80º temperatures.

Known as “the Walleye Capital of the World” this region also brings in anglers seeking yellow perch, smallmouth bass, steelhead trout and many other species. Fishing is productive year-round and can be enjoyed from a variety of shoreline locations or through charter captains or walk-on head boats that make the experience easily available for all ages and levels of experience. Tens of thousands of anglers head here each year to take home impressive catches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Three weeks in Port Clinton

  • 5 of 5

I was travelling with a representative sporting team and five of us stayed in the house for three weeks. The house is well equipped and it was great for us to have a bathroom for each bedroom. The cooking facilities were good and there was plenty of space for us. The owners made a special trip to give us a key to the mail box as one of the team had something delivered there. This was very much appreciated. The town is very pretty and we enjoyed being so near to the lake. I thoroughly recommend this house for all.

This is a very nice home and VERY responsive owners . . . The house was warm and very inviting. Even with the -3 degrees high temperatures we found our stay to be warm and relaxing. It would be a fantastic location in the summer with many amenities within 1 mile. Everything advertised about this house is accurate and the rental process was easy. GREAT PLACE TO VACATION.

Owner's Response: While most visit the shores and islands of coastal Ohio in the Summer; Winter is growing in popularity, with 2 back-to-back years of a very frozen Lake Erie! Some come for the annual NYE Walleye Drop, others for prized ice fishing and we continue to host teams, from across the country, coming to compete at Camp Perry's world-class air rifle and air pistol training facility. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and welcome you and your group back in any season. Thanks for posting a review.

Owner's Response: Visiting Lake Erie in Autumn offers many opportunities. Whether your plans are to attend the Lakeside-Marblehead Lighthouse Festival, HalloWeekends at Cedar Point or traveling along the Lake Erie Shores & Islands Wine Trail; there is plenty to do, aside from simply enjoying a relaxing weekend away from home with family or friends. A GREAT Place on our GREAT Lake should always equal a GREAT Time! We are glad you agree and many thanks for your kind words.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had three generations stay at this home for a weekend getaway. It was so nice that each bedroom has it's own bathroom. They supply so many little extras, grill, pool toys, tandem bikes, board games etc. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this beautiful home.

Owner's Response: We have seen a trend toward multigenerational vacations and our home and the amenities at The Village at Water's Edge are well suited for fostering this type of togetherness. At the same time, our 3 bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom, provide a level of privacy that can make a vacation like this a success. Our location in Port Clinton presents opportunity to plan something for everyone. Whether it is a trip to Put-in-Bay on the Jet Express for some or a visit to the African Safari Wildlife Park or Cedar Point Amusement Park for others; we are centrally located to recreational and entertainment options for every generation! We are glad you enjoyed your Family Getaway and welcome you back in the years to come. Many thanks for sharing your positive comments.

Beautiful House and great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 of us, all adults who stayed the weekend at this beautiful condo. We stayed at the villa one night and used the grill and cooked outside by the pool and it was perfect! They really have everything at the villa you would need. The pool was a great area to hang out with friends and lounge at for the evening. The next day we decided to go to Put-in-Bay and it's a very short drive to Jet Express...maybe 2 miles. But I couldn't have been more impressed with the villa. It was spotless, beautifully decorated and even smelled like vacation!! There was plent of room for 10 adults to sleep comfortably. 3 bathrooms were great for the amount of people as well. They even had coffee, sugar and splenda at the house because we forgot to bring our own! They really thought of everything! Thanks for such a pleasant stay....we will definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: When we hear comments like "It was spotless, beautifully decorated and even smelled like vacation!!", we can't help but SMILE. We have contiually updated pillows, linens and other amenities to keep our home fresh and updated. Nothing is worse than your "home away from home" not providing a clean environment to feel comfortable and relaxed. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and grateful that you took time to share you comments about our home, The Village at Water's Edge and the surrounding area. We hope that you will return again for another fun-filled weekend, or better yet, a weeklong vacation!

Delightful place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation to Port Clinton and the house was a perfect retreat that nicely fitted in 3 generations (8 people) comfortably. It was a nice touch to be welcomed with a bottle of locally produced wine which was excellent! The layout of the house gave privacy with separate bathrooms for each bedroom. The beds including the bunkbeds were comfortable. The kitchen with barstools and adjacent dining table was convenient for meals. Our children did not want to leave. Our only suggestion would be providing a crib (pack and play) and booster seat for eating as these are somewhat bulky items to bring along.

Owner's Response: We are glad you traveled the 3.5 hours from London (Ontario) to Port Clinton. The Village at Water's Edge has become a popular coastal retreat with access to abundant recreational options to satisfy any number of interests. In our 6 years of sharing our home, we have served host to guests from 19 different States, Great Britain and now Canada. Having enjoyed your family vacation, we hope that you will become our ambassadors in Canada and introduce others to the abundance of Ohio’s Lake Erie Shores & Islands. Thank you for the kind review.
