Super

  • 5 of 5

We have come to the cottage 3 years in a row. We just came back from a week vacation there. We like this quaint cottage. We really like the outdoor fireplace. Sitting by the fire is so nice after a great day at the beach. The cottage is located very close to their private Bluebird beach. This cottage is a gem.

Exceeded Expectations - Loved It

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for 6 nights, checking in on July 4th. We were in town for a baseball tournament at the new Cedar Point complex just east of the Point along with 5 day passes to fill time between games.

This was our first (ever) VRBO, AirBnb, etc. time renting to stay somewhere.

After this trip...I'm not certain I will ever stay in a hotel again. This property is phenomenal and Dan exceeded all our expectations.

The property oozes character. From the kitchen cupboard doors, the inside stone fireplace, roomy yard, a sleeping patio like great grandma used to have, heck the vent between the kitchen and main room. So many things to discover and appreciate. The cottage smells slightly old but not musty.

Sleeping arrangements, no complaints. The bed in the main room was exceptionally comfortable. Our kids enjoyed having the sleeping patio all to themselves and were able to spread out.

Outdoor fireplace...so much else has been said, but this is what really makes the property. I mean you come home from a long day in the sun, start a fire, grab a cold one from the fridge, and let the cool breeze wind you down. I told my wife that I was ripping out the pergola at our house and building one of these.

Remodeled bathroom...also a key addition. Very spacious with a jet tub and stand up shower. Lots of room here to move about. Amenities like wifi, games, books, cable, fireplace, cornhole, bikes, grill, kitchen items, etc. We didn't spend a ton of time using everything but it was all there. We walked down to Lake Erie (maybe a block?) to watch people light fireworks on the 4th. Not much of a beach to speak of, so if you are expecting water access and bringing your kayaks, I'm not certain I would put in at Bluebird Beach. Was so clear you could see the lights on the coasters across the lake.

Dan is a fabulous host and was very interested in how we were doing. We had a slight issue when we arrived but he was easy to get a hold of and responded quickly.

The only real thing I can think of to carp about would be the size of the place. With my wife and 3 kids, it felt cramped after we unloaded our van and settled in. There isn't really a pantry to speak of so most of our food we bought/brought was piled on the kitchen table. I would be hard pressed to stay here as long as we did with 7 people so just something to keep in mind. Maybe just the wife and I next time.

We had an awesome time and wouldn't hesitate to come back. Thanks Dan!

Enchanting historic cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really had a wonderful stay here. While having kept the historic in the home, the owner has many updates inside. We loved the patio fireplace outside. The neighborhood was quiet. Just what we needed. Thank you again Dan.

Goldilocks House!

  • 5 of 5

I felt like Goldilocks and the 3 bears in this house! It was adorable, quaint, and just right! Dan and Jennie were extremely nice and helpful! What a welcome we received! The house was spic and span. We had plenty of space for our 3 night stay. We were about 20/25 minutes away from our main destination, Cedar Point! The town of Vermilion is pure Middle America! We did visit the local grocery store, at in town twice and had ice cream downtown. It offered what we needed. The outdoor fires was a nice relaxing way to end our long days. We were about 2 blocks away from Lake Erie which was beautiful (to look at and be in!) The small yard allowed for my daughter to play. Quite possibly her favorite thing about this house, the Jacuzzi tub! The bathroom is amazing here. Overall, you cannot go wrong with this house and town!

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

From the time I located this adorable cottage our experience and stay was exceptional! The owners response and attentiveness was spot on! Our 2 sibling families (6 people total) enjoyed the outdoor fireplace every night, spent the day at Cedar Point (about a 20 minute drive), returned to town for lunch & a power nap, to then ride, ride, ride & close the park down. Loved, loved, loved that everything you could possibly need was provided! Plus, the place was very clean! I really hesitate to rave much more about this gem, to keep it hidden and available for our return visits!

A unique place to stay for a small-town feel

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I planned a trip to Cedar Point this year with a little stay-over in Vermilion to make the trip more special. We decided on staying at this cute little cottage, as opposed to some chain hotel, to feel like we had our own space - it was perfect! Dan, the owner, was super nice and greeted us at the cottage to hand over the keys and give us a little tour. We were quickly charmed by the retro kitchen, unique vaulted ceilings and wood architecture. The newly remodeled bathroom was wonderful. The best spot is the covered porch with a working fireplace! For entertainment there's cornhole, bikes, board games, books, tv.... there's even some campfire tools to make smores or hotdogs. The neighborhood is quiet - we didn't see much of the neighbors. There is a train close by which was a bit loud at night from the sleeping porch - but you couldn't hear it from the bedroom. The cottage was just a few miles from downtown Vermilion.

So if you're looking for fancy linens, the newest fixtures, and tempurpedic beds - find a fancy high-rise hotel.... if you want a memorable trip where you feel like you're home away from home, I definitely recommend staying in this unique cottage for a few days!
