Description of the Huron vacation home rental
This beautifully landscaped waterfront home is located on the shore of Lake Erie between the cities of Huron and Vermilion. Our home sits atop a grassy hillside that slopes to our private and secluded 200 foot wide sandy beach. You can swim in the warm shallow waters, or just wade out hundreds of feet on the sandy lake bottom. Two kayaks are available for your use. The sunsets are awesome, and on a clear night the stars are clear and bright. A small beach fire is permitted at night and the firewood is provided.
Just a few feet above the private beach, and tucked into the hillside, is a cozy shade deck surrounded by ivy-covered trees. This beach deck has 2 adirondak chairs, a round table and 5 chairs. There is a large sun deck higher up in the middle of the professionally landscaped hillside. The sundeck has a motorized 10 x 16 foot awning that converts this middle deck into a large shade deck if desired. 2 Bistro tables and 4 high chairs and a 2-burner grill make this middle deck a great outdoor dining area overlooking the beach and lake.
There are three additional sitting areas, two are on top of the hillside, and one is on the west end of the landscaped hillside, about 6 feet above the beach. Adirondack chairs are on the decks and sitting areas. Everyday, you will likely see a wide variety of birdlife, including Blue Herons, Bald Eagles, White Egrets, gulls, geese, ducks and Turkey Buzzards. A century old lilac tree (bush) holds many feeders which attract colorful songbirds. Bring your binoculars!
The rental unit of our home is an attached "in-law" suite that is on the east side of the main house with 2 private entrances: a kitchen door on the back deck and sliding glass doors on the front deck. It has a loft bedroom with a queen bed facing the lake. The lower level has a full bath, full kitchen, dining area with lake views, sunken living room with a leather couch, separate full-size sleeper sofa, rocking chair, cable flat screen TV, Blueray DVD player, Sony Stereo, WIFI internet and piano. Wired Internet is available anywhere on the property where there is an electrical outlet, including all 4 decks. There are 2 decks directly attached to the rental unit. The front deck faces the lake and has a well maintained hot tub for your enjoyment. The back deck is a 2-level deck that has a view of the lake, table with 6 chairs and umbrella, deck furniture, a small electric grill, and a large Weber grill. The back deck is shaded by three tri-color beach trees, a magnolia tree, and a variety of colorful roses, perennials, and annuals.
This guest suite unit is best suited for a couple since there is only 1 queen bed in the loft. However, one or two children could be accomodated on the sleeper sofa.
No smoking or pets are allowed. However, we do have cats on our side that are friendly to guests.
The main house dates back to 1820 and was totally restored and remodeled in 1982 by the current owners. The guest suite addition was completed in 1994. The front of the house faces the lake due to a main east-west road between the house and the shore that washed away in the 1800s. Lt. Robert E. Lee visited the house in 1835 when he was a 28 year old engineer for the Army.
My wife, Lucy, is a licensed massage therapist and a professional massage may also be scheduled during your stay.

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Huron, Ohio
Peaceful lakefront home!
September 8, 2013
My husband and I spent labor day weekend at this beautiful and peaceful lakefront home. Bob and Lucy were very friendly and welcoming. We are hoping to go back and visit again next summer. Thank you for a wonderful getaway!
September 1, 2013
My husband & I spent a week up at Bob & Lucy's and we wish it could have been longer! Bob & Lucy are fantastic, everything you need at the house has been provided. The wine, cheese & crackers, and the muffins are another added treat! There is alot to do in the area from just relaxing at the house and enjoying the views, reading a book on the beach, soaking in the hot tub to visiting winery's, great restaurants, small towns,put-in-bay, to a cute Tiki Bar walking distance from the house. Hopefully we will be back for another visit! Thank You to both Bob & Lucy for making our vacation a 5-star stay!!!

I recently had the opportunity to spend two nights at Lucy and Bob’s place (a repeat performance from last year!) This time I brought my husband with me, which was a different experience. My favorite “activity” is to be outside & and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, the peace and calm of listening to the wind and the waves. Reading, walking, just sitting outside in this lovely place is incredibly soothing. My husband, while also enjoying the out-of-doors, enjoys riding around and seeing the sights. This year we got to do both! Early morning walks on the beach, a leisurely breakfast of coffee and delicious blueberry and peach muffins, and then visits to the local orchards/farm markets, wineries, landscaping companies and touring the quaint town of Vermilion. Then off to some lovely restaurants for dinner and early to bed, falling asleep with the sound of lapping waves. However, I did manage to stay up to watch a funny movie (DVD provided) after a mini crash course for the technically challenged from Bob! The home and surroundings are 5 stars (that is 5 out of 5) – the owners are 10! We highly recommend this Huron Vacation Home as a place for R & R and/or as a starting point for roaming around the countryside.

Picturesque place, great vacation!
August 25, 2013
We are so glad that we found that beautiful house. It was a great vacation and a big joy for me and my wife. Bob and Lucy are such great personalities and very respectful in all aspects. A lot of fun and relaxing activities to do in that property. Private beach, very nicely decorated decks. Kayaking at the sunset time was absolutely spectacular and so romantic.:)) Enjoy Barbecue right next to the beach with a fantastic view. Vermilian is also a great small town to visit near the property. Homegrown peaches sold at a nice local village cottage near small street were delicious. Looking forward to visiting this beautiful place again. Recep &Humeyra Ornek

Relaxing lakeside retreat
August 20, 2013
Absolutely great visit. Bob and Lucy are most gracious hosts and the house was spectacular in all respects. Wish we could have stayed for three more days. Found lots of beach glass and visits to Vermillion and Marblehead were lots of fun. No complaints whatsoever.
Awesome beach, Beautiful view!
August 7, 2013
My husband and I, and two children stayed at the Bunseys suite this past weekend. The suite was very clean and had everything our family needed. Bob and Lucy were so kind and made us feel right at home. The boys fished, swam, and collected seashells. Bob and Lucy's yard is beautiful, the patios and flower beds are amazing! The hot tub was also a favorite, especially in the evenings. We had a great bonfire on the beach the last night of our stay. The sunsets over the lake was breath taking, we could of stayed a few days longer! Will definitely return again, we had a great vacation!
Lake Erie Getaway
August 1, 2013
Just got home from a delightful getaway to Bob and Lucy's gorgeous property. Each morning was magic looking out at the lake vista from the loft bedroom and the sunsets from the hot tub were a perfect way to end the day. We took side trips to Old Woman's reserve where we saw eagles and herons, and a couple of nice bike rides on the North Coast Inland Trail from Elyria to Oberlin. Our hosts thought of everything from leaving treats in the fridge for our arrival to blueberry muffins for breakfast. We are "cooks" so we really appreciated all the kitchen essentials from spice rack to recipe box. The lawn and gardens are just gorgeous and the morning we left we saw a buck outside our window. The private beach was wide and we found several pieces of sea glass washed up from a recent storm. What a treat! You will not be disappointed if you stay at this property - I am already looking ahead to when we can go back. A real gem!

My fiance, 18 month old, and I had a blast here this past week. We dont have much to say about the area attractions because we just stayed around the house the whole week. We really enjoyed the private beach and hot tub which was perfect for our son. Bob and Lucy were extremely nice, easy to talk to, and added extra touches (coffee creamer, coffee, bottle of wine, fresh muffins, fresh cut flowers, and fresh fruit) to the stay that you just wont get on other vacations.

Comfortable, peaceful stay
July 21, 2013
Our family stayed here for a portion of our vacation. Bob and Lucy are very friendly, helpful and accommodating hosts. The suite is very clean and comfortable and we had plenty of room, even with two sleeping in the living room. The setting is absolutely beautiful; the lake, sunsets, landscaping each contribute to the serenity of the place. For those pursuing more activity, lakeside towns with restaurants, shops, playgrounds, etc. dot the area, and the drive and ferry to the islands is easy, though pricey. Be sure to schedule a massage with Lucy; I'm so glad I did!
The Perfect Getaway
May 13, 2013
As best friends we came here for a little getaway from Illinois and we loved it! This place is spectacular!!! From the welcoming atmosphere from the host and hostess, to the breathtaking view of the beach of Lake Erie and the well-manicured landscaping around the lake house, this place is everything you need to escape the pressures of life. The property has an abundance of wildlife including blue herons, hawks, loons, seagulls and a variety of other birds. The property owners were friendly and willing to make our stay as relaxing and stress-free as possible. Upon exiting our vehicle we were greeted by the hostess by our first names and given a tour of the suite. We were surprised to find a bottle of wine and homemade muffins for us. The suite was very clean and was furnished with everything we needed for our vacation. We would highly recommend this location to anyone who is looking to escape from their everyday lives.

Me and my new husband recently went to the Bunsey's for our honeymoon. This suite was so nicely kept, and the owners were more then helpful and very sweet people. They greeted us warmly upon our arrival, gave us a tour of the property and suite and when we asked, they gave us great opinions on places to go for fun and to eat in the local area. Knowing it was our honeymoon, they stocked our fridge with two little bottles of champagne, cheese, grapes and for the mornings a couple orange juices and bottles of water. There was a bag of muffins and crackers on the counter upon our arrival, all of which was more then expected. The land and lake is so beautiful. They keep their yard neatly kept and have a nice landscape. We took their kayaks out on the lake and did some swimming. The weather was perfect during our stay and we had no problems getting there. We would love to return for another vacation there, maybe as a future anniversary get away. I would recommend this spot to anyone who wants a private get away that comes with a private beach. Couldn't ask for anything better. We thank you Bob & Lucy for your kindness and letting us stay at your guest suite!!!

Relaxing Vacation on Private Beach
August 26, 2012
My husband and I returned to this property for our second time. This year we spent more time relaxing on the beach doing absolutely nothing. If you are looking for a private beach, quiet atmosphere and breathtaking views of the water, this property is for you. Bob and Lucy are great hosts. They do all the little things that make the vacation a little more special. This guest suite is definitely one that you must check out for yourself!
Great trip to Lake Erie
August 22, 2012
Really enjoyed our trip to this Huron Ohio Waterfront home. Bob and Lucy were excellent hosts during our trip and quite lovely people. The guest house is comfortable with incredible views of the lake and beach. We were lucky with weather also and it was mid 70's and sunny for our visit. Look forward to returning soon.

Waterfront Vacation Home

So glad that I found this property! It was a challenge to find a house (not a condo) for two siblings. This one was perfect, and even more than perfect. Nice and very friendly owners (thanks for the muffins!), clean and spacious house, huge lawn for running and playing, lots of decks to enjoy the view while having lunch/dinner, private beach and LAKE few steps from your door. I'd call it an "all-sufficient" house, you just relax and enjoy your time, everything else is just by your side. We would be happy-happy-happy to come back if we have a chance :)

The perfect beach house!
July 18, 2012
We arrived on a bright sunny aftenoon only to be pleasantly surprised by a breathtaking beautifully landscaped backyard. The home sits on a hill and looks down on a lovely private beach, which our family thoroughly enjoyed.The water was crystal clear . Our suite was charming and immaculate . The views wonderful! Bob and Lucy were so kind to our grandchildren and were always there for us when we had questions. We will look forward to visiting them and their beautiful property again. Ron and Bonnie Lawson
Perfect Beach Getaway
July 17, 2012
My family just returned from vacationing at this great rental. Place is not small and can easily accomodate 2 adults and 2 kids. Very clean and well maintained with a good selection of books and CDs. The beach is a REAL beach and fairly private. The hot tub is a big bonus as we used it daily. Bob and Lucy (and their 7 cats) were great hosts. Much better than a hotel or most other alternatives in the area.
