A deposit is required for all reservations, amounts vary by cottage. You will pay in full prior to your stay, this allows us to have a contactless check in, which is recommended by the CDC guidelines. Payment can be made by check or by credit card over the phone. Please respect our check in and check out times as this ensures enough time for proper cleaning between guests.

Sunsets at the cottages are beautiful.

Welcome to a world apart from time in Vermilion, Ohio…

Go back in time and enjoy a lake cottage vacation. Our goal is to provide today’s family and future generations a “window into the past”. Unplug and escape the hectic pace of today’s world and treat your family to a vacation that is reminiscent of a simpler way of life.

Enjoy the sunsets over the lake and islands, the lake breeze, and the sound of the waves. Swim, sunbathe, build sandcastles, fish, boat, read, play yard and board games, or just relax at the campfire, meeting and talking with other guests.

We look forward to the summer season when we see old friends return and new friends made. We hope that you will make Cottages at the Water’s Edge an annual family tradition.
