Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday lodge in Lakeside Marblehead - Lighthouse Lodge-Marblehead OH

3 bedroom & 3 bathroom; Sleeps 19+ with efficiency.

The Lighthouse Lodge is located in the country, quiet area of the Marblehead Peninsula is the best area vacation rental for groups. Take a look at the Lighthouse Lodge virtual tour, or visit us at our site — LighthouseLodgeOH (dot) net.

Unlike most other area businesses, our rates are fixed. So, staying with us for local festivals, bike week, birding week, Walleye Festival, Christmas in July or December, or any other event or national holiday, you will see no increase in our rates.

Unfortunately, the quotes provided though this site’s format are such that the system does not work with our simple rate policy. To determine the rate for any stay, you can easily calculate the Lodge rate to see if making the Lighthouse Lodge your vacation home is within your budget.

2016 RATES—

MINIMUM TWO NIGHT STAYS. (Sunday through Thursday).

Up to 6 people; $240 nightly (minimum); $40 per person/per night.

Each additional person — $40 per person, per night.

MINIMUM WEEKEND STAYS. (Friday, Saturday).

Up to 6 people; $300 nightly (minimum); $50 per person/per night.

Each additional person — $50 per person, per night.

A non-refundable 50% Deposit holds the Lighthouse Lodge for your holiday. A completed Booking Confirmation form usually accompanies the deposit. Local bed tax is included in rate.

Pets may be considered, but only after a discussion about the pet(s). After that discussion about your pet, Jeff may choose to welcome your pet at a cost of $20 per night.

At the Lighthouse Lodge, we welcome and accommodate small groups, multi-family groups, and very large groups. Antique collectors, birders, shooters for the national matches, artists, fisherman, hunters, and families enjoy the décor of this one of a kind place. Reunions, parties (bachelor and bachelorette--bring your own music!), business gatherings, Girl Scout troops, and church groups are very satisfied with the Lodge's space and atmosphere. The Lighthouse Lodge is at the heart of local attractions and parks-- Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Johnson's Island, Lakeside, East Harbor and Port Clinton are all nearby.

We have an upstairs studio/efficiency off our sign studio that is available. More information and photos for the efficiency are available at LighthouseLodgeOH (dot) net.

We have been here since 1995 with our sign business and have been active in the community with our Lighthouse Lodge since 2002. The Lighthouse Lodge is a great vacation home that can be yours.

(ps--Bed tax is 3%--has been since instituted in Ottawa County. Some guests are frustrated when they learn this because they have been charged anywhere from 6% to 7.25% other summers at other places. There is no state tax on a vacation rental like ours. Ohio does tax sleeping accommodations with five or more sleeping rooms for less than 30 days stay.)

About Jeff & Lisa Bumbera--Owners/Managers (residing near your next vacation rental)

I am a lifelong professional commercial artist and have used my abilities as a designer to create a Lodge that offers a unique lodging experience. I remain a paper/pencil guy. I believe in handshakes and conversations. I look forward to talking with potential you and working to establish the Lighthouse Lodge as your vacation rental.

The Lighthouse Lodge is a 'live' project, changing and growing with antiques and art that are added regularly. I wanted to create the most unusual and comfortable place for groups to gather, and I know that the Lighthouse Lodge is exactly that.

Lisa was a high school English teacher for almost 20 years. She does not correct anyone's writing or speech, and she too often fails to proofread. She and I want your visit to be great, so please ask questions while you here. (If you need a bit of....something, please ask.)

We are vacation property owners who are HERE to help make your stay easy, pleasant and memorable.

Why Jeff & Lisa Bumbera--Owners/Managers (residing near your next vacation rental) chose USA

The Lighthouse Lodge is located where access to all the things we enjoyed and loved about Marblehead and Port Clinton all our lives are easily accessible. We have wifi so when you return to the Lodge from your excursions, you will have wifi to use to share your photos of your day.

We love our hometown and this area. We know the richness of our community makes it so attractive, and it is easy to enjoy much of the area when the Lodge is your vacation home.

What makes this lodge unique

The Lodge is spacious and comfortable -- an interesting place to relax, meet, share your experiences at any of the attractions or on the shores of Lake Erie. Any visit to the area parks and preserves will lighten your spirit. After a day's outing, guests gather around the firepit to relive their experiences. Some families and groups enjoy parking their vehicles and remaining at the Lighthouse Lodge to enjoy or renew relationships, leaving the property only upon departure. Each year we hear, "This is the perfect place for us."

Our rates remain stable throughout the year, and there are never any hidden fees. We respect your privacy. What happens at the Lodge, stays at the Lodge. We hope you will ask us to take your group photo on the stairs behind the Lodge, at the willow tree, or indoors so everyone is in the picture. If you choose to share photos with us, we are very grateful. We hope you will tell us how we can help you during your stay.

We regard guest service as a high priority at the Lighthouse Lodge, and we are ready to help make your visit a memorable one. We want you to be among our guests who return year after year.

Great location for our purposes. Lots of room. Quiet everything on one floor. Cooking equipment was a plus.

Many groups enjoy cooking outdoors, so cooking and grilling tools are important. If ever you need anything, just ask. We look forward to the 2015 National Matches. Good luck to you and your group, Rich.
