You will be on the lake at this Lakefront Home with your own private access.

Having spent a number of years in North East in the summer with my husband, we know all the special places and festival and will guide and share to make your stay one you will never forget and keep coming back to enjoy year after year fun! We have found peace and relaxation by listening to the waves hitting the shoreline and hope you will find this to be your destination, for relaxation and experience our slice of paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow. We planned a last minute getaway with family, and decided to take our chances on the weather and we couldn't have been more pleased with this house and location on the Serene Shores of Lake Erie, in November. The house is unbelievably accommodating, spacious enough you won't feel cramped, the kitchen and dining area were large enough for us to seat us. Well stocked! Amazing lakefront home I was in awe when I walked around to the frontside of this house and the lake and beach were right before me! The house was immaculate and the attention to detail, on the decorating was very comfortable. We made plans before we left to return in the early summer to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The homeowner was very easy to work with, the process to book was simple I would recommend to someone who is wanting lakefront getaway you won't be disappointed. Wineries were minutes away, my husband went fishing steps away at 16 mile! Something for everyone.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely wonderful! Adele was awesome to work with since we had to scramble to find somewhere to go for a 50th birthday celebration (on a days notice) after hurricane Matthew caused us to switch direction from Florida to Lake Erie. The house is just lovely, clean, and the view is spectacular! We visited the wineries for two days and loved coming back to the house to sit and enjoy the view each evening. Would absolutely come back again! Thanks Adele for sharing your lovely home!

Adele was a gem to work with while booking our stay. She even mailed maps and local info for us to plan with. The home had high end furnishings and decor but it was still very warm and inviting. Plenty of bedding, to fit the comfortable beds. Lovely large home for our fun weekend getaway. Plans underway to come back next year☺ Clean beautiful property, with a great location, breath taking view and great owner, thanks Adele!

Wonderful place to spend with your family

  • 5 of 5

Beach Glass Cottage was a beautiful place for our family of 8 to spend a week at. The inside of the place was just gorgeous and so clean! Outside was great also! You did not want for anything The sunsets reminded us of the sunsets in Key West. Adele the owner was super nice and very accommodating!

Perfect House, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second stay at 'The Beach House'. Just as the first time, it was wonderful. We seek quiet, rest and relaxation on our vacation - and this location delivers just that. The neighborhood is quiet, private and far removed from any traffic or road noise. The views from inside and outside the house can't be beat - just as the pictures show.

The sunsets are spectacular. My cousin, who joined us for the trip, has traveled to beaches all over the world and is a self-proclaimed connoisseur of sunsets (and has hundreds of pictures to prove it). She said that the sunsets we saw from the deck overlooking Lake Erie were just as spectacular - if not even more so.

The home itself is cozy, comfortable and spacious. And it has everything you need. It's close to several wineries, restaurants, golf courses and a grocery store.

However, there is one negative I should mention. Having to leave. :-(

Wonderful Lake Retreat...

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 4 adults & 2 children, stayed at this home mid-July during the Cherry Festival. This home has direct beach access to the lake, which is wonderful and calm and great for children. The home is adjacent to Freeport beach, and a short walk to Freeport Restaurant. The deck is by far THE BEST feature of this home, and became our outside living room to relax, read, listen to music, grill, and enjoy the amazing sunsets. Adele was gracious and accommodating and made it all very easy. The home is updated, charming, and decorated impeccably. We had a wonderful 4 days at Adele's home and wouldn't hesitate to book again..and hope to, sooner than later.

My sister, mother & I spent a four-day get-a-way at this lovely location and quickly became its biggest FANs! Truly the best beach side location with fantastic views, easy access to the private beach & the cottage has every amenity necessary! And even those you'd not normally anticipate! The owner was a delight to work with & helped to make our stay magical and carefree!! We are already scheming for a return trip.
