About Stacy Sohner

Paul and Stacy Sohner:

We are originally from Tucson, Arizona and moved to Columbus, Ohio (Go Bucks!) 13 years ago after traveling and working throughout the United States. We have been married for 19 years and have 2 wonderful children!

Stacy Sohner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Stacy Sohner chose Oak Harbor

Sunny Disposition is our home away from home! We love to escape and go to the lake for some rest and relaxation! We chose Sand Beach for its close proximity to all of the Lake Erie attractions, while still retaining the quiet resort community atmosphere! We enjoy the convenience of being so close to the marina and boat launch and having so many wonderful beaches to chose from! The kids love to go up to the lake, playing in the water and romping on the playground across from the cottage!

What makes this cottage unique

The greatest benefit is a cup of coffee on the deck, watching the early morning sunrise. For those late sleepers, the sunsets are equally spectacular!! We have the unique ability to offer our guest availability for up to 42 guest with neighboring cottages and nearby condo!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This year was our second year in a row! For our family, renting Liberty Breeze and Sunny Disposition for a week family reunion was perfect for all ages, from my 78 year old mother to the kids under ten. The location is great with a short drive to Port Clinton and a shorter drive to the boat docks. The houses are on the lake so can walk out the back door and throw a line into the water or simply sit and relax with the waves. The kids enjoyed the park and the short walk to the beach and mostly chasing the frogs at night. The adults enjoyed the large decks and the camp fires at night. The houses are set up nicely for sleeping and for dinners or for those naps on the couch. We would all highly recommend either or both houses, depending on the size of your group

Beautiful Home for Large Groups on Lake Erie

  • 5 of 5

We spent Memorial Day Weekend here enjoying Lake Erie. The home was clean and provided plenty of space for meals and hanging out, but we spent most of our time on the deck taking in the lake views. The kids enjoyed the playground across the street and swimming off the deck and at the beaches. I would highly recommend this rental!

Birding Week

  • 5 of 5

Our birding group used the cottage as a daily starting location for travel to various local birding hotspots in the area during the annual warbler migration - including the famous boardwalk at Magee Marsh . It is well stocked, the beds are comfortable, there are plenty of towels and other amenities. We especially enjoyed sitting on the deck looking out over lake Erie at the end of a long day of birding and relaxing in the evening as weather permitted.

Stacy was easy to work with and answered all our questions in a timely manner.

I highly recommend the cottage to any group or family visiting the area.

Beautiful home, great memories!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home for a New Years gathering and we had an absolute blast! The house was beautiful, clean, and the views of the lake were lovely. There is a lot of entertainment provided in the house itself, such as puzzles, board games, video games, and a lot more - the kids loved that! Stacey, the owner, was very easy to reach and always kept in touch with me during our stay. Definitely would recommend this home in the summer and even the winter!

Great times at sunny disposition

  • 5 of 5

Another GREAT trip to the Sunny Disposition house. We have gone there yearly for the last four years and we get excited like it is the first time. We took a ride to the ferry that took us to Put in Bay for the day- amazing.

We like to travel but hands down S&P properties is always the best. They are always organized and the house is always ready and in great working shape. They have always followed up with us to know if we need anything they are a phone call away.

If your looking for a great trip please visit.

Perfect location for charter fishing, home and back deck right on the water overlooking Lake Erie!

  • 5 of 5

We have a group of 6 that has gone to Stacy's cottage for the last few years for our yearly fishing trip. It is perfect for us as it is a short walk/drive to Wild Wings Marina for charter fishing. We have the fish cleaned then cook it up and eat on the deck which overlooks Lake Erie. The cottage is right on the water and the best rental available for the price range in this area. Stacy is a very helpful and accessible owner should there be any questions or concerns. It works perfect for our crew every year and look forward to doing it again!
