Why Rick Gilhart chose Put-in-Bay
We love Put-In-Bay! The location of our property on a very private drive, on the quiet side of the island, allows for a relaxing yet fun-filled getaway. The fantastic selection of restaurants and pubs are just a mile away.
What makes this House unique
There is no other property on the island with the unique characteristics of the North Shores. Sunrise/sunsets, swimming/fishing off the beach, sailing/boating, yet very private!

Put In Bay , North Shores
This property is really awesome, so relaxing, an amazing location, top of the line house with everything you could need, roomy so comfortable , yet private. Couldn't have asked for anything more, will definitely go back and since have recommended Rick's property to many friends and neighbors. Our family so enjoyed our stay there and wished we could have stayed longer. It was fun going into town to see all the entertainment, food and souvenir shops, but we really loved knowing when we hopped back in the golf carts, we could retreat back to a wonderful and beautifully put together home . Thank you so much Rick, Denise, and kids for sharing your amazing PIB home!

Best place to stay on PIB
This was by far the most beautiful and comfortable place that we have stayed at PIB. It is luxury without being stuffy. You feel welcome and comfortable, relaxed. Everything is topnotch. You must love peace, quiet, tranquility. It is a close golf cart ride away to downtown. For those who like walking, it's 15-20 minute walk.
Rick is so easy to work with about accommodations and answering questions. The property is better than the pictures. And spotlessly clean, but I suspect that is because, in part, everyone who has rented the house has done their part to help keep it that way. Every renter has appreciated what a find this is. A real gem.
Rick and Denise a big thanks for sharing your lovely home.

Perfect House for a Family Stay on the Island
My family stayed at this house the week of July 4th and had the best experience possible. The house is newly renovated with new appliances, beds and furnishings. The house was extremely clean when we checked in. It has a beautiful back yard right up to the water. Rick is very hospitable and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed including firewood for a fire pit out back and gave us access to his family's kayaks and corn hole boards. This house is located on a private street and very quiet yet only less than a mile from town. I would highly recommend staying here for a great experience on Put-In-Bay.
Perfect girls getaway
What a beautiful place for our girls getaway! The owner was attentive & helpful, though gave us our space & privacy. Abundance of windows for a beautiful view of the water. Quiet, secluded location, though just a quick golf cart ride to town. Comfortable beds, tastefully decorated, all you need for a relaxing stay. Exactly what we hoped for, and more. Highly recommended.
Rare, Superior Lakefront Lodging in Beautiful Home on South Bass Island
Look no further for accommodations on South Bass Island. In my opinion, this is the only place to stay! Pleasant and accommodating owners with historical ties to South Bass offer a stylish home with casual elegance. Furnishings & appliances are premium and lodging is superior. Large cast aluminum dining table & chairs enable a large family to dine outdoors in addition to spacious indoor dining. The acreage provides a great space for lawn games & outdoor activities. There is a fabulous lakeside fire pit to enjoy in the evenings. Plenty of Adirondack chairs line the concrete boardwalk along the shoreline. Just past the boardwalk is a clean rock shoreline and moorings for personal watercraft. It's a great place to launch your kayaks. You can paddle the nearby protected cove or have easy access to big water. The lake views are fabulous from indoors and outdoors. The property is secluded and quiet....a private oasis away from the hustle & bustle of downtown. Our stay was during the Battle of Lake Erie Re-Enactment & Bicentennial Celebrations. Tall Ships quietly sailed past the house as they made way to the Erie Tall Ships Festival. Relaxing lakeside in the Adirondack chairs was wonderful! Overall, this is a fabulous place to vacation. The home is comfortable & pleasant to stay in and it offers great opportunities to serve meals & cocktails. The outdoors offers everything that you want in a summer getaway.
Ideal Vacation Home
Great location and beautiful home. The house was everything the owners said it was. Ideal location if you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of downtown PNB. We especially enjoyed the convenience of the bouys to tie up our jet skis overnight so we could make several trips to Middle Bass Island. Also enjoyed the "paint table" outside where we spent an hour getting creative and painting lake rocks. It was great therapy. Wonderful owners and we would stay there again. Thanks Rich and Denise. We had a wonderful time.
