Nice and clean.

  • 5 of 5

All kitchen and bathroom essentials were provided. Cable TV had a minimal channel lineup with only 10 mostly local area stations.

Large well equipped and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We were attending the Oberlin graduation (easy half hour drive) for our son and chose this property because of the size, reasonable rate and it’s location on Lake Erie. We loved the spaciousness and wonderfully comfortable beds ! The home was absolutely spotless and Pam and Mark could not have been more friendly, helpful, thoughtful and responsive!

Spacious and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this Old Homestead home. It was very spacious, clean and well equipped. We ate some meals in the home and found very nice restaurants nearby. The owner was very welcoming and gracious. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach and saw an eagle eating a fish while we were there. The neighborhood is great for biking. We traveled to Catawba for the short ferry ride to Put-in-Bay. This was a great location and we thoroughly enjoyed our short weekend. Thank you so much, Pam!

One of the best VRBO rentals we have ever booked!

  • 5 of 5

We had nine of us - 7 adults and 2 little ones. This house was just perfect for our group! We have rented VRBO homes many times before, and this home was one of the best. Pam was easy to communicate with, and at the last minute, was even willing to work with us to stay an additional two nights, if needed. (It turned out we did not need to stay those two extra nights, but Pam was more than willing to accommodate us.) This home is well taken care of, and amply supplied. It is one of the few rental homes we have stayed in where we never ran out of simple amenities like toilet paper, kleenex, dish soap, paper towels, etc. Pam and Mark have gone the extra mile so that you do not have to worry about such matters. And it was nice that all of the light bulbs worked, and the electronics, the wifi, etc. Nothing was "out of order." If you have rented homes before, you know what I mean when I say that that is a nice touch! The house is roomy, and laid out in such a way that you can find a room for some peace and quiet, if desired. The neighborhood is nice, too. We stayed there in the middle of winter because we had scheduled a day visit to Castaway Bay in Sandusky for our grandson's birthday, before moving on to visit other family in Ohio. The house is about a 10 minute drive to Castaway Bay/Cedar Point. Since it was so bitter cold when we were there, we could not enjoy the lake, but it is a short walk from the home to a nice private beach with a view! I/we highly recommend this property!

Huron is known for bird watching. Areas close by: Sheldon Marsh and Old Woman's Creek. Both are about a five minute drive from our house.
