Year-round lake house rental with all the comforts of home — maybe even more! We are 30 yards from the Lake Erie shore, the second house from the lake, on a quiet road, closer to the lake than some of the lakefront homes.
Located in North East, PA, we are 18 miles east of downtown Erie. Our location in the heart of Lake Erie’s Wine Country and on the Lake Erie Ale Trail is a convenient location for winery events and tastings. 12 wineries within 8 miles.
We offer the lakeshore, lake access, many wineries, a quaint downtown and world-class fishing from the North East Marina and local streams. You’ll notice a slower pace of life, agricultural influence, and a small-town atmosphere. Plenty to do–but a welcome respite for city slickers.
Our home offers a place where you can enjoy family time with yard games, board games, campfire, s’mores, and a basketball hoop. Swim in the lake, and bring floats, kayaks, or paddleboards. Explore Presque Isle State Park, Waldameer Amusement Park & Water World, Wintergreen Gorge, or Panama Rocks for outdoor activities.
We love ladies’ getaway groups. Wineries are open for year-round tasting. Studio M (massages) and Bella Day Spa are just 3 miles (in North East, PA). Ask about private coffee mug or wine glass painting classes. Learn how to plan a ladies’ weekend getaway in Lake Erie Wine Country.
LAKE ERIE FISHING
Lake Erie is famous for its boating and fishing including walleye, lake trout, bass, perch, and steelhead. We are located 1.4 miles from the North East Marina where you can rent a short-term boat slip or launch your trailered boat or jet ski. We’re also located between 16 Mile & 20 Mile Creeks where steelhead season normally runs in November through March.

Things To Do: Cabin Life At Lake Erie
TOUR THE WINERIES OF LAKE ERIE WINE COUNTRY
We have an excellent location in the heart of the North East wineries. If you are familiar with North East, we are located between Mazza Wineries and South Shore Wine Company in North East, Pennsylvania. 10 wineries are within 8 miles, including Penn Shore, Lakeview Wine Cellars, Mazza (North East, PA), South Shore Wine Company, Yori Wine Cellars, Courtyard Wineries, Presque Isle Wine Cellars, Arundel Cellars, Arrowhead, and Heritage Wine Cellars.
ENJOY LAKE ERIE
Our cabins offer access to Woodmere Beach, a natural, ungroomed Lake Erie shoreline. (If you want a groomed, sandy beach, this is not a good fit. Our beach has a lot of beach stones. Freeport Beach is a public beach just 1.25 miles west of us.
What you can do at Woodmere Beach:
- sunset watching
- swimming, floating
- small beach campfires
- roasting marshmallows at the beach
- beach glass hunting
Head to the beach in the evenings with a cup of wine to view the sunset, a different show each evening. Some nights are cloudy with subtle color and some nights are brilliantly colorful.
Kids happily play at the shoreline, in the creek, in the lake and warm-up to the campfire as they make s’mores. Hunt for treasures like beach glass, beach stones, driftwood, and other ordinary objects weathered to ‘treasure-status’ by water and time.
Bring your bikes. Kids can bike up and down our quiet street. Adults can be more adventurous and take advantage of longer bike rides as well. Cycling tours and maps available at Lake Country Bike in North East.
Erie is a world-class fishing destination for boat fishing and stream fishing. Lake Erie walleye are plentiful. Bass, lake trout, steelhead, and perch are also popular with fishermen.

Fall Visits In Lake Erie Wine Country
Fall is a very popular time to visit. The grape harvest in September and October is hard to describe. The aroma of ripe grapes throughout our town is strongest in September when a simple drive through our area is a treat. In October the fall leaves reach their peak color. There is excitement in the air during this time and a buzz at the wineries, which are bustling with tasters. During the fall you can often see the grape-harvesting tractors in the vineyards from sun-up to sun-down. Lake Erie warms the nearby land and homes, adding a few degrees of warmth to the air.
The cooling weather of late October and into November signals the migration of steelhead (rainbow trout) back into their stream of origin for spawning. Visitors come from all over the world to fish the Lake Erie streams, including Walnut Creek and Elk Creek on the west side of Erie, and the Mile Creeks including 16 Mile and 20 Mile Creeks, both of which are within 2 miles of our rentals. The fishing season for steelhead generally runs from November through March, with November and March typically the most productive months in “Steelhead Alley.” We welcome fishing groups and guided fishing tours.
Wine Fest – The biggest wine event in our area happens the last full weekend of September. Three days of wine tasting, artisans, live music, food, and general merry-making. A nice event for couples or friend groups.
Fishing & Boat Parking
16 & 20 Mile Creeks are within 2 miles for great steelhead fishing in the streams November through March.
Walleye, perch, lake trout, and bass fishing are popular with boat fishermen locally. 2019 was another incredible year for walleye fishing and not quite as good for perch. Walleye fishermen were limiting out in record timing. 2020 is expected to be even better. Walleye fishing in our part of the lake is generally best in July, August, and September.
CHARTER TIP: Incredible walleye fishing presents a unique issue for charter fishing guests. If you catch your limit in an hour, do you need to pay for a full day of charter? Or, should you go with an outfit that offers half-day rates? And, what happens if you limit out in an hour. Game over? All questions you should ask before you book.
The North East Marina, just 1.4 miles east of our rentals, offers reasonable daily rates for a slip rental and boat parking, plus bait and PA fishing licensing services. Looking for a Lake Erie Charter?
