By the Lake

I so enjoyed my visit to Kelleys Island and our stay at Rockhaven. The private beach really extended our activities and afforded us a view from every window and the expansive decks (3 of them!). The kitchen was fully stocked and we cooked almost all our meals. The dishwasher and washer/dryer were a godsend with small children. There is an amazing pantry that held a lot of our dry food. The bedrooms were airy and pretty cool even in July. Everyone seemed to sleep well. The only drawback was that some of the house was below grade and it was very damp. The living room was musty, but what else can you expect when the air is humid. We really didn't use the living room/dining room. There are really no windows. We did use the bar. The large table could sit all 10 of us. The boat which was also a bar was a marvel. My two sons-in-law were intrigued and even figured out how to turn on all the neon lights and make the Genesee light spin. But we are really not big drinkers so the huge boat/bar was more used for storage than a bar.
I would (and will) recommend this property to my friends and I plan to return next summer.
We brought bikes and biked a lot and rented golf carts for an hour for those who wanted to drive a cart. We went to the beach 3 times,it is great for kids! We went to the grooves, tasted wine at the winery, went to the museum, did some shopping, played mini golf twice, got ice cream, fudge, toys, post cards. There is not a good place to take 10 people, including 3 children out to dinner. The restaurants are mostly bars and very noisy, Couples went out several times and enjoyed Bag the Moon and the Brewery. We had a fire on the beach (NEAT)!
