Welcome to your home for the week/weekend! The Beacon B&B/Vacation Rental at Lakeview Beach offers a relaxing stay directly across from Lakeview Beach and South Lakeview Park, facing the lighthouse with the neighboring beacon light flashing through the windows as if to guide and welcome you home! This classic century home with formal, yet warm and inviting, living/dining area and newly remodeled large open kitchen create a comfortable classy atmosphere for our guests. Enjoy morning strolls at the beach with hot coffee or walks through the historic rose garden or quaint well-maintained neighborhood. Relax and soak in the sunshine on the beach. Indulge in a massage with on-site LMT. Take it up a notch with countless activities: tennis, basketball, bike-riding, volleyball. Allow the breathtaking sunset over Lake Erie and the colorful fountain to set the mood for your evening as you take in the splendor with music and wine on the large front porch boasting a million dollar view!

The Beacon B&B is a century brick home located ACROSS the street from the Lighthouse that is pictured with that view of the Lighthouse and Beacon (for which the B&B is named). The Beacon B&B is currently being used as a vacation rental. There will be some extra special services expected in a B&B like fresh flowers, chocolates, etc. in addition, some select breakfast items along with a few toiletries are provided upon your arrival for your enjoyment during your first morning. But the home is rented to single families/groups so you will enjoy it privately! The price will be increasing for this coming season, but reflects renting the entire home for the week. The adjacent property is now available for vacation rental with the initial rates of The Beacon.

The 'Beacon B&B' is a classic century home and includes a more formal living/dining area with the warmth of 'old world/Tuscany' decor along the newly remodeled large, open kitchen creating a comfortable, classy and inviting atmosphere for our guests. Find quiet resting places in the 'Widow's Peak' in muted green tones overlooking the beach, with delightful doll house or relax with a book in the library in rich red and gold tones with decor seemingly inspired by voyages to Asia and Africa (This library doubles as a fourth sleeping room on the second floor).

The sleeping areas begin with the 'Captain's Quarters', a private second floor suite including a King bed with rich deep plum and brown hues, attached private bath, large bay window with full views of the beach and parks. 'Mermaid's Delight', a charming second floor bedroom includes a Queen bed with calming blue hues, delicate floral linens with a touch of gold and pink along with views of the beach and gardens and shares a large bath. 'Tranquility by the Sea' also on the second floor with a Queen bed wrapped in luxurious Park Avenue bedding in rich brown and blue tones and large shared bath directly across hall. 'Eagle's Nest' a suite located on the third floor with spectacular views of the lake and beach include a King bed with calming olive and gray decor and vanity area.

These four overnight stay rooms/suites and full access to the living areas and kitchen along with our pleasant host provide accommodations that truly make you feel at home.

'The Beacon' was built in the early 1900's directly facing the lighthouse with the neighboring beacon light flashing through the windows as if to guide and welcome you home! The large brick home withstood the damaging winds of the 1924 tornado. It provided a loving home to several families and at one point in the mid-1900's offered guest rooms as a tourist home. It sits proudly across from Lakeview Beach with its magnificent view of Lake Erie sunsets, along with the historic lighthouse, fountain and rose garden, as well as the newly reconstructed beach bathhouse that sits on the original foundation remaining from the tornado. This home's original garage was located under the large front porch as seen by the sills of the poured walls along the re-established driveway toward the front of the house. Most of the original woodwork and floors remain and grace the halls of this home that reminisce of a bygone era.

Ms. Kucirek acquired the property in 2003 after failing in love with the open airiness of the surrounding parks and magnificent full beach view. She is now happy to share this home and realize her dream of opening a B&B at Lakeview Beach. We are excited as we continue to complete renovations for each coming season with special rates and plan our Grand Opening upon completion of these improvements! We are happy to announce a major improvement ihas since been complete: the water pressure! The 'Eagle's Nest' on the third floor is now available. A sleeper sofa was added to the library to provide a fourth private sleeping room for guests on the second floor. We are a proud sponsor of Firefish /Follow the Fish Arts and Adventure Trails, Lorain County.

Family vacation on Lake Erie

  • 5 of 5

Kelly's house was amazing. We had great views of the lake and the kids enjoyed the beach numerous times. We went to Cedar Point, Cedar Point Shores, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Football Hall of Fame, and even caught a minor league baseball game while in town. It is always a great thing to enjoy these adventures with your children and grandchildren. We WILL be going back in the future. Thank you Kelly for such a great time. We loved the houses !!!! The Harris family.

Wonderful home!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fun week! We rented this property due to being so close to the lake, and it did not disappoint! If you are looking for a modern, cookie cutter house then this is NOT for you!! The house has so much character and the personal touches were amazing!! You can see a ton of work has been put into renovating it! The stocked kitchen was a plus and the house really does feel like a home! Beds were comfortable and everything worked as it should! The ONLY downside was not having a washer/dryer, but that is it! Highly recommend this beautiful rental for everyone!

We had our company outing in Lorain. The Beacon was a great location and more than enough room for us all! The front porch is huge and great for relaxing on. The kitchen is updated and has enough room for a large party. The owner Kelly makes sure you have everything thing you need to enjoy your stay.
