Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay at Angler's Anchor! Great for a family with kids. Beautiful Lake Erie is just steps away. 3 season porch was wonderful for our family meals at the cottage. Stacy was available to answer any questions we had. Loved taking walks by the marsh and seeing many different birds during our stay.

Great Beach Escape

  • 4 of 5

The house was comfortable, well furnished, and able to accommodate a group of adults. We even survived the shared bathroom! The owners thought of everything including ample bath towels, beach towels, chairs, bikes, and kitchen supplies. We chose to hang out at a larger, sandier beach down the road and had it to ourselves. I wish we were closer to Port Clinton, but it was a short drive to civilization.

Comfortable and clean! And great birding just outside the door.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at Angler's Anchor during the Biggest Week in American Birding in May. We were close to all the great birding locations including Magee Marsh. Even better, on our few walks around the neighborhood and adjacent Frank Harris Wildlife Preserve we saw over 50 species of birds including Green Heron and Black-crowned Night-Heron. On our last cold, windy, rainy morning we had our best birding experience of the week with 12 species of warblers and Black-billed Cuckoo showing up in a neighborhood shrub patch. Angler's Anchor was a great home base for us -- it was super comfortable and quiet and had everything we needed. Thanks Stacy!

Almost Heaven

Great owners, Very Clean Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Anglers Anchor for a week. We wanted something close to Camp Perry as one family member was attending camp during the day there. This location was perfect! We were less than a 10 minute drive to Camp Perry! A major grocery store was less than a 20 minute drive. There are restaurant recommendations in the house. We enjoyed the Jolly Roger Seafood house. The house was in a great location within a private community. There was minimal road traffic and no noise. The beach was almost deserted and not at all crowded. The house had nearly everything you could possibly need while away from home. We especially loved the 3 seasons room on the back of the house. I had to call the owners twice during our stay with questions, and they were immediate to answer, even on a holiday. Thank you Stacy for your attention to detail, and professional yet friendly manner! We enjoyed our stay at Anglers Anchor!

We stayed at Anglers Anchor for 7 days. I can't say enough about the cottage it was perfect. It had all the comforts of home including little things like toothpicks all you need to bring is your clothes and toiletries. If your a boater or fishermen this place is perfect!
