Everything You Need to Know About Planning a Lake Erie Staycation

Enjoy the best of the best during your next visit to the lake. We have your guide to planning the ultimate Lake Erie staycation this season. 

Moore’s Heritage Farm Market

Experience wholesome Northern Ohio living from Moore’s Heritage Farm Market. The market offers the freshest produce, locally sourced meat, homemade bread, pasture-raised eggs, local jams and honey, and more! Their products are revolving, but the end state stays the same—everything tastes better when it’s fresh. 

Fat Sally’s Warehouse

Fat Sally’s in Ashtabula has perfected the art of antique shopping on Lake Erie. From farmhouse tables to handmade jewelry, they genuinely have a little something for everyone, and at a great price! Stop in during your next visit. We promise you won’t leave empty-handed.

Harpersville Vineyard

In the Grand River Valley, Harpersville Vineyard is one of our favorite spots to take in the beauty of Ohio’s Wine Country. Sit between the flowers in their covered pavilion and enjoy a glass of their estate Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. Visit on a Saturday and dance along to the sounds of a local band. Harpersville is one that you’ll want to add to your Ohio Wine Valley bucket list. 

M Cellars

M Cellars produces world-class wines in the heart of Ohio Wine Valley. The vineyard is laidback and casual, with picnic tables lining the vines, while the tasting room is modern and informative. Let M Cellars impress you during your next visit.

After enjoying a day on Lake Erie, Eddie’s Grille is the place to go for root beer straight out of the barrel, all-beef hot dogs, cheeseburgers, and delicious, ketchup-dipping french fries. Eddie’s is the perfect spot to make new summer traditions. Pick a song from the jukebox, pull up a chair, and stay awhile at Eddie’s at Geneva-on-the-Lake.
