Mark & Sandy Mueller purchased this cottage in 2015
This property has been in my family for over 45 years. My family always vacationed in Erie in my youth and actually rented a cottage right up the beach. My parents then acquired The Viking when it became available and passed it on to my siblings and I. My wife and I just completed the purchase of The Viking from them in May, 2015. We love the Erie area and actually have many friends here from spending week-ends and basically growing up with them in our youth. Properties in the Baer Beach Community rarely change ownership and are typically passed through the generations so everyone knows everybody. It is a very safe, tight knit community. The cottages are very close together as in most beach front communities, however, our neighbors are friendly. We Love Erie!
The most unique feature of The Viking is it is located on the Lake Erie shoreline, 1 mile west of Presque Isle. This means some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world! A lot of mornings and evenings the only thing you will hear is the gentle lapping of the lake on the shoreline. Of course, you will also be entertained occasionally by storms, big waves and amazing lightning displays, all part of living lakefront on Lake Erie. The lake is within 30 feet of our beach deck. You will enjoy swimming, beach combing for lake glass, shore fishing, beach fires, and just plain relaxing. It is pretty bustling during summer with swimming, jet skiing, and laughter all day, with numerous beach fires as night approaches and quiet after 11 p.m. or so as everyone is usually pretty tuckered out from all the daytime activities. The mornings are quiet with the lake at it's calmest, sometimes "smooth as glass", as the locals will tell you. The sunsets along this part of
Lake Erie are simply amazing, some of the best in the world!
We joined another family to spend the week on the beach and explore my hometown, Erie. The house was fun and the beach is amazing!
Place was as billed would book again in a minute!
Excellent place to stay and create wonderful family memories at the beach.
The Viking is an adorable cottage on the waterfront. The private drive is so hidden that you swear you've taken a wrong turn. The location is everything, though the cottage itself is excellent as well. The property is well organized and equipped. Everything is clearly marked and well thought through. The sleeping arrangements are ample and cozy. The seaward deck is unparalleled. The only thing missing would be water toys, so bring your own kayak, paddle board, floaties, etc. Well done!
The property was amazing! It was clean, with plenty of amenities, felt as comfortable as home! So much to do in the area, it's great for families or just couples. The sunsets are so pretty, it was worth the trip if that's all we got out of it but obviously we got so much more:) I recommend the Viking to anyone interested in a lakefront home on presque isle!!! Thanks Mark!!
