Roller Coaster Road Trip 2017: Lighthouse Point at Cedar Point

As I spoke about in my last post, our visit to Cedar Point was the ultimate in roller coaster fun, but that wasn't the only great thing about that stop.  For all of our other stays on this trip, we used AirBnB for lodging, but for here, and at Gary's suggestion, we stayed on the grounds of The Point and it was spectacular!

Lighthouse Point is an area within the Cedar Point property that consists of an RV camp, cottages and cabins.  We opted to rent one of the cabins, just steps from the shores of Lake Eerie.  The rental was a little pricey, but oh so worth it.  The three of us had left Cincinnati early in the day and as we made our way up to Sandusky, my curiosity about our digs was piqued.  Gary had described it to us beforehand, but it was hard to picture just what it would be like.  All I can say is wow!  

The cabins are located just outside the park (a five-minute walk), towards the northern tip of the peninsula.  There's a common area swimming pool, a deck, and a barbecue just outside of each lodging, and the place itself is charming and clean.  It was nice to be able to escape the crowds of the park for a couple of hours and enjoy a swim, some relaxation and even some home-cooked BBQ. Oh, and discounted tickets to the park are also available to guests of Lighthouse Point.

Well, there's not much more to say about the place, except if you're ever planning on a multi-day visit to Cedar Point, this place is so worth the visit.  Check out some more pictures of the cabins of Lighthouse Point...
