Our paradise is a 100 year old home. This cottage is a comfortable, spacious and somewhat rustic experience. As you can see in the Owner description area - I personally love it beyond love. It's for this reason that I want to share it with people. We cannot be there all the time (yet), so we are offering it to rent.
We have all the basic conveniences of home including appliances, cookware, pots, pans, dishes, glasses - etc. Please see the amenities list for full list.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: The water on the majority of the island is not potable. Our water comes from a well, however we do not recommend drinking from the tap especially during seasons where there are blue algae blooms. We provide a water cooler with at least two jugs of water per week for drinking and cooking.
Understand that this is an island in the middle of lake Erie that is largely made up of natural habitat. That means gnats in May, fish flies in June, mosquitoes, spiders, snakes bees etc. in addition to the beautiful butterflies, birds, foxes, dragonflies and other more palatable creatures. If you are an experienced camper you will now that the nightly sweep for spiders and mosquitoes that came in during the day or that emerge at dusk is something that is a part of cottage life.
Am I trying to scare you away? Not at all! However, it will break my heart to hear that you were disappointed in some fashion because your expectations were not aligned with the realities of island life.
The number of renters who enjoy and rave about their experience far outweigh those whose expectations fall short, but I would like to see 100% satisfaction for all who stay with us.
Thanks for looking us up and here's to wishing you a wonderful vacation!
