About this listing
ERIE SHORE B&B ABOVE THE SEA
This charming 2 bedroom cottage is located on the shores of Lake Erie, in Erie, PA. It resides in the quaint residential neighborhood of Eaglehurst, (est. 1917). Secluded from touristy, high traffic areas, but in walking distance to the private beach, pubs, eateries, a roller skating rink... and Waldameer water and amusement park (we have $5 discounted tickets available).
You will have access to the neighborhood beach (campfires and sunsets are a common occurance), just a 1 minute walk from the cottage... as well as a 5 minute drive to the beaches, hiking trails, boating, and fishing on Presque Isle peninsula.
Available to you is your own large bedroom with 2 queen beds and a PRIVATE bath... plus the parlor, kitchen, sitting room, yard, and deck. The queen airbeds are new, self-inflating, squeaky clean... and you can adjust the firmness or softness of each mattress to your liking with the touch of a button, making them quite comfortable...as well as being able to adjust the temperature of each side of the bed independently... again, with the touch of a button. These beds make for a cozy no bedbug stay.
Your stay INCLUDES breakfast and lunch (for here or to go) daily for each guest. We strive to serve the freshest and healthiest foods that include eggs, meats, cheeses, fruits, juices, breads, coffees, teas, luncheon fare and snacks.
The parlor, with its beautiful knotty pine ceiling is large, airy and open, with great light for reading, working, or relaxing. There you will find the warm fireplace, a table and chairs, TV, DVD player and wireless internet.
Some of our guests greatly appreciate having the parlor after hours for themselves for tv, talking, reading, etc, while the kids are tucked away in their bedroom. Recently, very many guests have told us that we are their 1st airbnb experience and they were glad they were.
Diane and Lee will be your hosts from Fridays to Mondays, unless you request a mid-week stay. Monday-Thursday nights are considered mid-week, when rates may be higher.
The rate is $89 for each single (higher on certain dates) and $118 for each double (higher on certain dates), per night. Guest 1 (higher rate on certain dates) and guest 3 are $89 each and guests 2 and 4 are $29 each. Rates fluctuate depending upon dates, availability and scheduling.
The airbnb rate section has some limitations and DOES NOT always reflect our actual rates. Inquire within to get an acurate rate for your intended dates. On some dates, there is a 2-night minimum for singles and doubles. Inquire within to see if your intended dates apply.
We accept small lap dogs that are well trained and/or crated, therapy dogs and other dogs that DO NOT shed, but we require a pet fee of $15. Sorry, no cats (we love em but they dont work as guests).
We can accommodate your car and boat or trailer with off street parking. You will be very comfortable in our home and in our neighborhood.

Interaction with Guests
we interact with our guests just enough to take care of them while giving them the utmost privacy. sometimes guests want to be left alone and sometimes they want to interact. we try to read them and give them the space or attention they want. their privacy and comfort are our number 1 concern.
our neighborhood is very unique to most others. besides its great location thats close to everything and overlooks the sea, its a mix of homes with vastly varied architectures. we dont think there are any 2 homes in the entire neighborhood that are the same style. the people who live here are great...extremely friendly, open and warm.
there is a good bit of wildlife in the neighborhood...a bald eagle, hawks, turkeys, gulls, canada geese, ducks, and many cardinals. there are places on our beach to chill out or have an inpromptu campfire.
the bus lines travel down west lake road, a 2 minute walk from our home and we are a 5 minute drive from the airport. downtown is easy...1 road (great drive) for 10 minutes. you can walk to a few good eateries here in the neighborhood.
Other Things to Note
