Why You Will Love Finding Places To Stay In Put In Bay
This post is dedicated to Katrina Reed My Dear Friend Who Lives Life To The Fullest with a Big Kind Heart ♥
I travel there at least once a year, varying between summer and fall because there’s everything to love on the island and it’s my secret place to ‘get away from everything while I am there, I explore and adventure and have fun at night!
- If you stay here overnight you can linger longer at the top of the observation deck atop the Perry Monument, and on a clear day, you’ll be treated to rewarding gorgeous views of all the Lake Erie Islands and the Canadian islands as well!
- You’ll experience sunrise and sunset which are both equally gorgeous
- There are some good breakfasts on the islands (REELS my good friends own this place and I can’t say enough!)
- Go to the winery, and sip, and don’t worry about having to leave the island
- Sightseeing by day and sipping by night (great bars abound)
- Enjoy exceptionally party-prone bars with music or comedy or just lots of people wanting to have a good time!
- Go Boating and Fishing and sunset then dock, head to the hotel or resort and sleep to repeat this again the next day
- You are a stone’s throw from Kelly’s Island so staying at a Put In Bay Ohio hotel means waking up and catching an early ferry to head on over to Kelly’s quicker!
- There are 2 different Ferry systems to get there, 1 for cars (campers) and people and one for just people, so you’ll be there however you choose
- Staying here means you don’t have to worry about missing the Ferry when they stop coming!
Don’t miss out on the nightlife it’s a fun party and you don’t have to drive anywhere if you stay at 1 of the Put In Bay Hotels On Island.
How To Search For Places To Stay In Put In Bay
One of my favorite ‘Dana Escapes’ is Put In Bay, South Bass Island on Lake Erie, some also call and search for it as Putin Bay but Putin does not own the Ohio Island and he lives in Russia, not the USA, lol! Plus that spelling is wrong!
The right spelling is all hyphenated for those three words, but you can search for resorts or hotels on the island using any of these terms:
- Put In Bay Resorts
- Resorts in Put In Bay
- Put In Bay Ohio Hotel
- Put In Bay Where To Stay
- Put In Bay Hotels On Island
- Lodging at Put In Bay
- Hotels on the island
- Put In Bay Lodging
- Bed and Breakfasts Put In Bay
- Inns On Put In Bay
- Rentals Put In Bay Lodging
Now you will be sure to find a place you will love to stay at using any of those searches!
What Put In Bay Hotels Have Unique Options?
Realize that you are not going to an upscale country club, this is a basic Island, and you don’t need to dress up, you just need to be dressed Ha!
Really, it is not fancy, and everyone that owns their business is kind, and fun over the last 8+ trips that I’ve gone there, and spent time, I’ve made friends and I go back just to visit!
You’ll find 1 or 2 hotels or inns that are fancier than all the rest, but beyond that, it’s just basic, so ditch the heels, opt for tennis shoes, pack light, and relax, that’s what Put In Bay lodging really allows for!
Everyone that travels has a different reason to get away from wanting alone time poolside to wanting quiet time or being situated right on the beach.
You’ll find all those options with many different places to stay in Put In Bay just find what works for you, your budget, and your preferences!
1 Of the Put In Bay Resorts is the ONLY Lakefront Hotel
The bragging rights of being the only lakefront hotel out of all the resorts in Put In Bay is a big deal for those that love a balcony with a lake view where the sun kisses the lake good night and you get a front-row seat every single time!
A killer sunset, bar, huge jacuzzi, and a view of Perry’s Monument are a few reasons you’ll love it here!
Plus, there’s a bar by the pool where you can sip the night away and then retire to your room if you don’t want to go to town which is just a short walk or golf cart ride away!
You will be treated to a crazy great view of Perry’s Monument and the unending scenic view of Lake Erie.
This hotel is currently in transition and it is not only upgraded and remodeled, so you’ll want to definitely seek this out, due to the exterior amenities alone it’s awesome!
Another Unique Option from the Put In Bay Hotels Portfolio
You’ve got to know yourself and what you want out of a vacation or a quick getaway. If you LOVE to party, this next one is for you!
You Might Enjoy With A Pool And Bar In The Middle Of The Party?
For those of you that are going away and really are looking for a hotel with a pool and a bar, this hotel is centrally located and really popular for a lot of reasons!
You’ll be right in the downtown strip, enjoy a bar in the pool, and have the advantage to hop right on out to the party that happens by night in all the bars!
Here you can swim, sip and enjoy the weather that has left me sunburned every time I leave (that’s a good thing because the sun and fun are endless here!)
I consider this the fun stop, where the music pumps and the drinks flow freely and it is tucked away right in the middle of everything, and other than riding by on a golf cart or walking on foot and hearing the music, you would never suspect this much FUN Is in the middle of it all.
Other Put In Bay Lodging Options
You’ve got a great realm of choices for Put In Bay Lodging:
Consider the INNS For Lodging At Put In Bay
There are a few Inns on the island in Ohio and you can just google them.
The Inn above is right off the main street, yet it is quieter and more upscale than any other place on Ohio Island.
Get ready because it’s almost B&B yet it’s not nor do I really consider it a hotel, it definitely is a mix that is both enjoyable and very clean (a big bonus after a day of walking, and adventuring) making it a boutique hotel.
You will find pristine accommodations, large comfortable ‘themed’ rooms, and a central location close to everything, yet a setting far enough away that rest and relaxation are prominent.
What you won’t find at this boutique hotel is an ongoing party, loud music, or chaos, but there are quiet hours with easy in and out access.
Of course, there are plenty of other options if you don’t fit this quiet mode of lodging.
Popular Other Places To Stay
We’ve stayed across from the Ohio Island many times, so that is an option as well, and here are a few places you could stay!
- Stay in Sandusky then take the ferry the next day you’ll need to find a hotel, I was not happy with the one we stayed in
- Port Clinton has a great option and a fun beach with restaurants all in 1 hotel location!
- Hang out in Marblehead at a fabulous Inn and winery then make it a day trip but you gotta make the last ferry to get back!
Getting To Put In Bay Resorts and the Ohio Island Is Easy Peasy!
You’ve got a few options for water transportation to and from Put In Bay, and I’ll quickly walk you through them, and I’ll also share this a bit more extensively in a different article for more in-depth info!
- Boat there and dock
- Use Miller Ferry (both passengers, bikes, Jet Skis, and vehicles)
- Use Jet Express (people only)
The transportation runs back and forth all day long and up until a certain time at night, and that changes with the season, so you’ll need to check each vendor’s website to find out what the schedules are.
Once off either of these ferries, you can hop into a golf cart rental and head to the lodging at Put In Bay you have booked with dropping off your stuff, checking in, and letting the party begin!
You can also walk to your destination or take a cab, depending on which water transport service you chose, and where you are staying as they both let you off in different places on the island!
