About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 total including children over the age of 10

504 East Perry is a beautiful historic stone home located on the shores of Lake Erie just a hop, skip and jump from the water, with a beautiful view from the front veranda and front rooms. The front lawn is a great place for a game of bocce ball, touch football or just watching the boats! Relax in the backyard by the fountain….you won’t even know you are in town.

A nature preserve is adjacent to 504 so you can relax on the veranda and watch the eagles soar, the herons strut or sailboats flying their spinnakers. Historic Downtown Port Clinton is a quick stroll and home to amazing restaurants, bars, galleries, antique stores, free trade store, fish house, charter boats and ice cream parlor. The 4th Thursday of every month the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council holds their ARTWalk in the downtown giving you a chance to meander the streets and businesses and see the remarkable talent our area has to offer and enjoy the camaraderie of the town.

Walk to the Jet Express to explore Put-in-Bay or take a short drive to Catawba Island to catch the Miller Ferry if you want to take your car. Drive to Marblehead and view the Marblehead Lighthouse, explore Lakeside, visit Johnson’s Island where Confederate prisoners of war were held in the military prison, jump on the Ferry- M. V. Shirley Irene to go to Kelley’s Island or take a short drive and spend the day at fun-filled Cedar Point.

The upper quarter features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, family room, sitting room and balcony. Each bedroom has its own unique personality with a queen size bed, bed linens, cozy comforter, plush pillows, television and sitting area.

For nature and bird lovers, our area was part of the 'Great Black Swamp' and we are at the crossroads of two major migratory paths. The variety of birds and waterfowl is amazing! Magee Marsh is close by so you can go enjoy their nature programs and boardwalks through the marshes. We love sharing the wonderful things our area has to offer and helping you create wonderful memories while spending time at 504!

What can I say? I would live here! Felt like home the minute you walk in. The gardens, the privacy, the front porch all a delight. A vacation just being on the property.

Fabulous rental!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in numerous VRBO rentals and would be challenged to find another as clean, charming, and well-outfitted for guests as the Stone House. The inside is very pretty and filled with unique items; for the entire stay all six of us would notice and remark on something new we "discovered". The kitchen is filled with everything you could possibly need, and Carol left us several fabulous surprises (not going to give it away before YOU stay). We particularly enjoyed all the outdoor spaces - the backyard, back porch, front porch dining, front porch seating, yard, etc. And the "bottle room"...I had wondered about it before we went and why no one had talked about it in previous reviews. I'm going to give you all the same gift and leave the unveiling to when you arrive for yourself. With six adults, we were worried there wouldn't be enough space for all of us in this apartment. We needn't have concerned ourselves because there was plenty of space; in fact, it seemed like we had rented an entire house. Our only problem? Not enough time at the Stone House; we were all so sad to leave and would stay again in a heartbeat. Carol and Jeff were incredibly patient with our countless questions before arriving, and their directions were spot on. If you're looking for a rental in the Port Clinton area, no need to look any further:)

We had a great, comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

This house has so much character and wonderful decorations. We were very relaxed and comfortable inside and out. We had everything we needed for our meal prep and learned to limit number of cooks in the kitchen, :).

The front porch views of Lake Erie were wonderful and great way to end the day. Thank you Morgans for sharing your vista.

We stayed 8 nights.

This is an amazing space!! The location is beautiful, right across from the lake, close to downtown and the Jet Express to the islands. The back yard is fantastic!! There is plenty of room to sit and relax or BBQ. The front porch is just a charming place to sit and look out over the lake. The inside is fascinating and eclectically decorated. Everywhere you turn there is something to look at.

As for the hosts...... well, I don't think you could possibly get hosts that are more accommodating, generous, kind and overall just fantastic people!! It's like they are little fairies, you wake up and the shade umbrellas are up, or come home after dark and the candles are lit. When we arrived, there was a bottle of wine and a yummy meat and cheese tray waiting to welcome us. They really have thought of everything.

This place is worth every penny you will spend. Your time here will be treasured and memories will be made!!

As advertised

Only surprises were pleasant ones. Would stay here again. Everything was spacious, including the lounge areas around the yard. Jeff and Carol were very easy to deal with and all instructions were easily understood.
