Stay Overnight On Lake Erie
Hotels, Resorts, Cottages and B&Bs on Lake Erie
Ah, summer. Listen to the waves crashing on the sandy beaches while seagulls keow overhead. Welcome to America's North Coast - Cleveland's Lake Erie.
As the warmest, shallowest and most biologically productive of all the Great Lakes, Lake Erie makes a rather relaxing setting for fishing, swimming, boating and some afternoon beaching. Then again, there's also kayaking, jet skiing, stand-up paddleboarding, sailing and, the unexpected activity, surfing.
No matter how you enjoy your version of Lake Erie, there's nothing better than resting your thinker at a lakefront hotel, resort or B&B. Because, really, what better way to catch some zzzz's than with Mother Nature's very own version of white noise?
