Put-in-Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Put in Bay, also know as South Bass Island has been called the Key West of the North. It is an island located in the western basin of Lake Erie and is reached by ferry from Port Clinton, Catawba or Sandusky. You can bring a car although the taxi service and golf cart rentals are a great way to get around. Put in Bay is definitely a fun loving place. The summer weekends are noted for the many taverns and nightlife, however during the weekdays and off season, it's a great place to relax with family and friends. There's history with Perry's monument, a lighthouse, butterfly house, wineries, a state park for lake swimming and fishing, a public golf course, jet ski rentals, miniature golf, or just enjoying the scenery at DeRiveria Park! After a busy day you can relax in the new development pool or just soak in the garden tub with a good book. Our home has two decks, great for relaxing and kicking back. On a quiet night you can hear the waves!

About The Owner

We love the water, we love the sun, and we especially love getting away with family and friends. We truly believe that time spent together makes our bonds stronger, and for this reason we purchased this property. We're average folks, nothing out of the ordinary, just wanting to have the opportunity to share our island home with others.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Ohio

We love the beach and living in Ohio, we've always enjoyed Lake Erie, it's amazing what the North Coast has to offer. Because Put in Bay is an island and is only reached by ferry or plane, we always got the feeling that we were 'on vacation' when we went, even if it's just for a few days. Put in Bay has so much to offer, from the great entertainment, the quaint shops, wineries and the spectacular sunsets.

What makes this house unique

Our home is completely furnished and ready for your stay. Put in Bay is within a day's drive of much of the Midwest. It's amazing to realize that guests from places as far as Wisconsin, Chicago, Cinncinnati, Washington DC and Pittsburgh regularly come to enjoy this little island in Western Lake Erie. Come find out what Put In Bay is all about!

Great Girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The location, amenities and accommodation of this rental home, was perfect for our impromptu overnight girls getaway! The property location offers the best of both worlds. An opportunity for quiet away time, as well as close proximity to fun party life and sightseeing! I am a traveler and always look for well kept hotels and rentals. I would definitely recommend this property!! I am looking forward to my next visit, this time with my family! Bravo Marie...

If you have any concerns or problems she is quick to help you with anything! We will be returning next year and the following year!!! As long as Marie will have us. I have referred people to this place and I will continue to do so!!!! Thanks Marie for a wonderful experience in a beautiful place!

Great place to stay in PIB

  • 4 of 5

Four of us stayed at this privately owned property for a much needed girls getaway. It was our first time visiting Put-In-Bay. The house provided plenty of space for the additional items that we brought. The kitchen was stocked with plenty dishes, flatware and pots and pans. Bathrooms were clean and in working order. The living room was comfortable and provided enough seating for our group. We also enjoyed both decks for morning coffee and grilling out. The community pool was very enjoyable and convenient. We only had one minor issue the TV in the living room was not working. The owners did come over to look at the TV and were very polite and apologetic that it wasn't working. Turned out the Dish box needed to be replaced. The property was just a short golf cart ride into town. In town we enjoyed visiting the local shops and restaurants we especially liked the Put-In-Bay brewery, the Round Bar and The Forge. Over all it was a great place to visit.

Excellent Weekend Getaway

Needs Updating/Poor Response Time

  • 2 of 5

Stayed here with friends on the last week of July. The property is fine for what it is, but If I were to come back I would just look for a similar place with different management. The place is in bad need of updates but it doesn't look like there has been a dime put back into the property in 20 years. The bunk-bed broke while we were there, I disagreed with why we were charged for it, but I respect the decision. What I don't respect is the fact that there was even a bed in the property that had a weight limit of 125 pounds, (not safe) and that it took 3 weeks and multiple un-replied emails to even get some of my security deposit back. I am sure this place makes good money for the season it would be nice if even 5% was put back into updates. Again, not a horrible place to stay and obviously the island is amazing, but for what you are paying you are better off finding more attentive people to rent from.

Good place to see the island.

  • 4 of 5

Six of us stayed comfortably at the cottage for two nights. The owners were very easy to communicate with, answering our many questions and were very accommodating with anything we needed. We enjoyed the decks and grilled out each night. The house was well located and an easy bike ride to anything you want to see on the island, but could use a few updates and a more thorough cleaning. The Island Club (and Put-in-Bay) definitely caters to a younger crowd looking to party, but we had no issues with noise, everyone was very friendly, and our young boys had a great time, especially at the very nice pool. We enjoyed our stay.
