  • Perfect roost for a Hens Night Out

    "Hosting a bachorlette party (hens night out) was made a bit easier by Darleen. She provided everything we needed for our lodging except the food. She even added extra towels so all 8 of us would be accommodated. The only, minor, disappointment was the beach area. Very mucky up near shore and no dock/pier to get out past it. Beautiful area. Felt like it was away from the "city life" while actually only minutes from everything we wanted to do."

  • Home Away From Home!

    "We love this condo! Finding this lovely place to stay was a real bonus for our yearly trip to Port Clinton in May. The unit is extremely clean and comfortable and being located on the first floor makes it even better. There also is the added bonus of being across the street from Lake Erie along with a marina on site to view for a nightly stroll. Lori is the perfect owner; always available for questions and ready to do whatever it takes to make our stay the very best. We really feel we have found our "home away from home!""

  • Great value, great fishing, great time!

    "This year was the second year in a row that I stayed at Bay's Edge and fished with Mark 1 Sportfishing. Both years we caught our limit of walleyes, and both years my group of guys were thoroughly impressed with the accommodations. Already, I have been asked to coordinate another trip with Bay's Edge and Mark 1 Sportfising for 2015. Talking with Mark, you sense the pride he has in owning a business with outstanding customer service. Deb is extremely helpful, patient, and provides responses to questions quickly. The townhomes are clean, spacious, and convenient. Having seven twin beds is great for a group of guys planning to take a fishing charter. If you are planning a Lake Erie fishing trip, I strongly recommend staying at Bay's Edge and fishing with Mark 1 Sportfishing."
