Kelleys Island, the 'Walleye Capital of the World” is the largest American island in Lake Erie located four miles north of the Marblehead Peninsula, and within a 2.5 hour drive of Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo and Detroit. Kelleys Island is on the Lake Erie Coastal Trail and on the National Historic Register of Historic Places.

Kelleys Island is the perfect spot for summertime water activities, including boating, sailing, swimming, jet skiing, kayaking and scuba diving. The 600-acre Kelleys Island State Park offers a sandy swimming beach, fishing, a free boat ramp, and boat trailer parking. Dock rental is available at the marina and other locations. Nature lovers flock to Kelleys Island for its bird watching and miles of hiking trails to unique sites and habitats. The downtown area is filled with restaurants, taverns, boutiques, miniature golf, and bike and golf cart rentals.

The island has been known for wine making for over 150 years and today the Kelleys Island Wine Company, founded in 1982, is the spot to enjoy the island’s finest wines and a unique menu in a relaxed, pastoral setting.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Having met at Miami University, we've been married and have lived in Worthington, Ohio for over 30 years. Our very first vacation together was to Kelleys Island to visit a cousin who was starting a business on the island -- The Kelleys Island Wine Company.

Why the Owner Chose Kelleys Island:
Our family has been vacationing on Kelleys Island for decades. It is an incredibly family-friendly vacation spot with plenty to offer kids of all ages. A trip to Kelleys starts with the ferry ride from Marblehead -- a 20 minute ride that serves to melt-away the stresses of the real world. Once onshore, a feeling of peace and tranquility instantly takes over. Kelleys Island is the perfect spot for family reunions, gatherings of friends, and lasting memories.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The first few blocks west of town on Lakeshore Drive have always been our absolute favorite place on Kelleys because of the beautiful old homes, the majestic shade trees, the cool breezes coming across the lake, boats of all kinds sailing by, and the gorgeous views of the mainland, especially at night. We never thought we'd be able to buy a place on this street. While here for a family reunion in 2013, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to acquire our own little piece of heaven.
