About Monica and Matt Hepler

Matt and Monica Hepler along with their 5 children, own and operate Hepler Meat Processing located in Emlenton, PA . Our meat market has served as an outlet for our beef cattle that we raise on the farm. We have lived in Emlenton, PA for 21 years. The children enjoy helping on the farm and at the butcher shop. We also process about 600 deer during deer season. We have been looking for a long time for the perfect house on the lake. It has been our dream for years to operate fishing charters and provide a beautiful place for our clients to stay. We hope you will enjoy your time with us and make coming to the 'lake' an annual event.

Monica and Matt Hepler purchased this house in 2013

Why Monica and Matt Hepler chose Pennsylvania

We purchased this property in 2013, We are avid outdoorsman and found the drive from our Emlenton home to be growing very tiresome after a long day of fishing. We have always loved the Lake Erie area, with its many activities; fishing , the beaches and just relaxing and enjoying the view of this majestic lake, we felt we needed to own a piece of it. We wanted to share these wonderful experiences with others so we decided to rent our home to those looking for a little getaway. Whether you're looking to come for the week or just a weekend, we thank you in advance for choosing to stay with us.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with our home from the first time we visited. The view of the lake just took our breath away. The house is newly remodeled and beautifully decorated. The master bedroom with its cathedral ceiling and its great view of the lake added to its personality. We enjoy sitting on our rustic log swing overlooking the lake and taking in each sunset. We hope you enjoy our house as much as we do. We have recently decided to offer a new service to our customers. We would like to give you the opportunity to purchase some of our delicious meats from Hepler Meat Processing, We carry our homemade hot dogs, cheese dogs and Jalapeno hot dogs, whole ground beef patties, hot sausage, hickory smoked bacon and extra lean country style breakfast sausage. You may include with your reservation, a list of the products you would like to purchase and we will have the freezer stocked and ready for your arrival. Our price list is as follows:

whole ground beef in 1# packages....$3.99/lb

regular hot dogs 8 to a pack...........$6.50/lb

cheese hot dogs 8 to a pack...........$7.00/lb

jalapeno hot dogs 8 to a pack...........$7.25/lb

hamburg patties 1/4 # 4 to a pack....$4.50/lb

We hope you will enjoy this added feature and the convenience of having stocked freezer when you arrive.

Blown away

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house on a last minute "let's go to the Roar in the Shore in Erie" weekend with 2 other couples. We were totally amazed at the location of the house and the interior. It was a great feeling of being at home. It was a short ride on our motorcycles to the events going on in Erie. Very well worth the money and we plan to book again. We have talked so much about the house and property that more of our friends now want to travel with us. Problem is it doesn't fit more than 6. They may have to book another house themselves. WE want the house back again if available this coming year.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned home from our 5 day stay here, the place is beautiful! We had such a relaxing fun time here. Our 3 year old and 1 year old son's throughly enjoyed the house and the games that are there. The view is fantastic and watching the bald eagles fly by over the lake topped it off. We can't wait to come back next summer. Thank you Matt and Monica for opening your home to our family for our very 1st family vacation! ❤ the dibattista family

This is our third time renting this property (twice in the summer and once in the winter). We always have a great time and love the layout and location of the property. We have two little boys and they love all the activities in the area: Presque Isle State Park, Erie Bluffs State Park, Waldameer, Asbury Woods, Children's Museum, train museums (one in North East and one in Conneaut), etc. The place is nice to come back to and has plenty of room for the kids to run and relax. It has all the amenities we need and it's in a great neighborhood. We will definitely rent again!

Our house is centrally located to several attractions: Presque Isle has the most beautiful beaches in our area, Waldemeer theme park is great fun for the whole family. A rainy afternoon could be spent at the Tom Ridge Nature Center. If fishing is why your choosing to stay with us, we can assure you there is no better walleye and perch fishing around. The house is located 1 mile from the mouth of Elk Creek and 5 miles from Walnut Creek, both world class steel head fisheries. We are 20 minutes from the Mill Creek Mall which has some of the best shopping in Northwest PA . If you enjoy touring on two wheels, the area offers numerous cycle friendly highways and numerous wineries and farm markets can be found within minutes from the house. If you feel like staying around the house you can hike to the mouth of Elk Creek , or just relaxing on the bluff reading a book and listening to the waves. In the evenings you can enjoy grilling out on our gas grill or roasting marshmallows around a campfire. Our location provides access to Erie Counties finest attractions without the crowded feel of many locations found closer to town. Whatever you choose to do we hope you will enjoy your stay with us!
