Gorgeous 4 bedroom, two bath home on the south shore of Kelleys Island, just a block from the center of town. The huge, old-fashioned front porch looks out over the water to Cedar Point, Sandusky Bay, Marblehead and Lakeside. Choose from the ultra-comfortable deep seating porch furniture or the old-fashioned rockers as the perfect spot for relaxing, morning coffee, reading, napping, people/boat watching and evening drinks.
Picturesque views across the water await you from all three porches, the living room, dining room, three of four bedrooms, and the fire pit in the backyard.
The side porch off the kitchen has been screened in, providing a cozy spot for coffee at sunrise. And… ceiling fans have been added to both the front and side porches!
The house is fully equipped with recently updated appliances, including dishwasher, microwave, and coffeemaker, first floor washer/dryer, wifi, satellite TV, and charcoal grill. No need to bring your own towels and linens — all are provided for you, along with soaps and paper products. Note also that cell phone coverage is excellent at our house (not everywhere on KI).
Upstairs you’ll find three bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full, 1 twins) and 1 full bath (shower stall) off the hall with a second door to the queen bedroom. All include window air conditioners, ceiling fans, dressers and closets/wardrobes. Downstairs you’ll find another queen bedroom, dining room, living room, kitchen with extra large center peninsula with stools, walk-in pantry, and the second full bath (tub with curtain). The living room features satellite HD TV, leather couches and an activity table for cards, games or jigsaw puzzles.
Kelleys is the family-friendly island, the largest American island on Lake Erie, within a short 2.5 hour drive of Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo and Detroit. The island is perfect for boating, fishing, bike riding, golf cart riding, hiking and bird watching.
(NOTE: Like most of the century homes for rent on the south shore, our house does not have central air conditioning, but the second floor bedrooms each have window air conditioners for sleeping. The first floor is cooled by cross breezes coming off the lake, mature shade trees in the yard and very tall ceilings with ceiling fans.)
