About Debbie

We have been in the rental business for over 30 years making sure that our guests have a worry free and pleasurable lifestyle.

Debbie purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Debbie chose Great Lakes Pennsylvania

Erie is the best place to be in the country during the spring, summer and fall. There are so many activities and it is great for snow birds to escape the heat of the south in the summer. It is one of the most affordable vacation spots in the country. If you enjoy winter activities, we have skiing, ice fishing, snowboarding and shopping.

What makes this cottage unique

The best benefit of staying at Kelso Cottage is that it is fully equipped. All you need to do is bring your bathing suit and beach towel to enjoy the beach and everything Erie has to offer. Also, there is a large amount of parking so there is room for your boat (less than 25ft) and car. The location is close to everything Erie has to offer.

Labor day get-a-away

  • 4 of 5

Me, my wife, and another couple spent the Labor day weekend here and we all enjoyed it very much. The private beach was only a 10 minute walk away from the house, the amusement park was right next door ( I was a little nervous about this, but everything was shut-down by 10 p.m.), and the peninsula beaches were only about 15 mins away. The house was super clean and the owner was extremely easy to deal with. We will be back next year!!!!!!!!!!
