Catering to both business travelers and vacationers, Erie is one of the few places to have a large lakeside beach that gets over 4 million visitors each year (named the 2016 Best Freshwater Beach by USA Today). From Memorial Day to Labor Day, with little B&B competition, the business is booming. This one-of-a-kind property is in excellent condition and ready for a new owner to take the reigns.
Additional revenue can be made by staying open over the winter, catering to business people, coordinating with the 3 local colleges, hosting parties, weddings, and family gatherings. BROKER PROTECTED!
