It all started because our mothers were dear friends. Every year they would stay at my Aunt's cottage on Lake Erie so we chose to stay at Eriesistible. Bonus: It was about 10 cottages away from where our moms stayed. We had a great weekend with lots of love and laughter and this cottage was perfect for our stay. Even though it was small, it felt roomy as the layout is perfect! There were only 7 of us but 8 would fit very comfortably. Great lake views, awesome sunset views, and evenings by the campfire were amazing. The others staying in the area were very friendly. We had a fabulous weekend and Eriesistible is just that -- irresistible. I highly recommend this cottage on Kelso Beach.
From The Owner: "Beverly, so glad you enjoyed the cottage. We love to go there still too.. We had to have been at Kelso together over the years. Do you remember Helen Wettekin's store? (I couldn't imagine coming to Erie if her store wasn't there), but we did survive its' loss."
The cottage has a beautiful view and comfortable decor. We enjoyed the beach every day. The front porch was perfect for watching the sunsets. We truly loved our vacation. Thank you for sharing your home.
From the owner: "Thank you for the nice review. So glad you enjoyed some Erie sunsets. They are the best!"
The cottage and view were fantastic. Neighbors were friendly. Parking is tight if the lot is full. Loading and unloading through the sandy path was probably the biggest negative. The cottage was pleasantly spacious enough for my wife and I, our 6 and 4 ry old, and another couple with their 2yr old. Don't forget water shoes for the rocky shore.
From the owner: "Thank you Marc for your kind review. Parking IS tight, and directions can be confusing (we are waiting on a construction project which could close the road at any time, hence the contingency directions).
Guests should know that we do have an assigned parking spot, regardless, and that none of the parking spots are connected to the dwellings. Once guests have found the spot and the walking route to the cottage, the vacation can start."
The beach is amazing, the neighbors friendly, the cabin well-appointed and hosts are super friendly and accommodating. We can't wait to return next year for more beach glass and sunsets!
From the owner: "Carrie, your review reminds us of what we love best about 'Erie' from our childhoods. I am glad you enjoy the cottage!"
