Just Right For a Family
Our family of 12 loved spending time here! Tennis courts, a beautiful beach, a large formal rose garden, fountain and more were right outside the door.
The house is unique, cozy, and peaceful. You can tell much work has been put into it. Beds were comfy, kitchen was well supplied, bathrooms clean. It wasn't overly fancy...but neither are we! We felt very much at home, and we plan to return next year.
A very comfortable and functional home!
We visited Kelly's home for a wedding destination weekend. Our youngest was married in Vermilion and Kelly's home was in the perfect location. We had 3 generations staying in the house and it worked great. The house was clean, stocked with essentials, and was located in a great spot. Across the street was a nice park and just a half block away was Lakeview Park and Beach. It was a wonderful place to walk and enjoy the beautiful lake scenery! We took friends through the house as they have family in the area and they were very pleased with all the accommodations. Additionally, there is a great front porch - where we spent much time talking about the wonderful weekend. Overall, it was the right place for our family.
Couldn't have asked for a better place
Kelly was fantastic with our needs and so attentive. She was fast to reply. My family had a wonderful time and was made right at home. I will definitely be using this home again when my new in laws come to visit.
Nice property with responsive host
Our Family enjoyed our stay at the Beacon B&B and were very pleased with the house which provided sufficient space for everyone to have a bed and sit together for meals. Kelly was very responsive to questions and helpful.
Cute house. Turned out to be a great place to stay for Oberlin Parents Weekend.
If this house listed itself as 3-4 bedrooms I would give it 5 stars. It worked great for 3 couples sharing, but depending on your mix of folks counting on 5 bedrooms might not work. As mentioned by others, the attic bedroom only has access via stairs from another bedroom. Would work great as a kids “secret bedroom” but not for another couple. The stairs are narrow but not dangerous. The basement bedroom is through the laundry room nice and quiet and a comfy bed, but the stairs down would be hard to navigate for someone elderly or obese. It also wasn’t clear to me there was any second exit out of the basement so if you were traveling with a fire-safety-conscious person, no one would be allowed to sleep down there.
It’s a cute old house, immaculately clean with nice little homey details. It is clear this house is lived and cared for and that counts for tons. Even though we were primarily in town to visit our son at Oberlin, the house is in an awesome location across from a park and half a block to the lake. I can see having a lovely multi-family time here when the weather is nice.
It's a nice house
We booked this house initially but Kelly upgraded us by moving us in to her other house which was right beside this one, much bigger and spacious, and had lake view from the patio which was the best part. We didnt explore much except walking to the beach which was completely hijacked by sea eagles which was a bummer. We instead played in the tennis court which was right across the street. Its a nice house that needs to be updated and I believe Kelly is already working on it :) But it was totally worth the amount that we spent. Would totally recommend this place.

Lorain is home to the International Festival and Port Fest at Black River Landing and its downtown is soon to be added as a 'Main Street' restoration project. Ms. Kucirek, acquired the adjacent property, 'The Beacon B&B' in 2003 after falling in love with the open airiness of the surrounding parks and magnificent beach. She realized her dream of opening a B&B at Lakeview Beach in 2012 and acquired this second property, 'A Beach Cottage' to share with visitors. We are conveniently located on Lake Erie, Lorain OH, less than an hour and midway between Cleveland and Sandusky (Cedar Point/Put in Bay) on SR 6 with easy access to SR2/I-90 and I-80 (turnpike).
