You get the best of both worlds in this very comfortable log home. You can relax on the lakefront breakwall or on one of the two large decks or brick patio, while just minutes from the fun activities and nightlife of Downtown Put-In-Bay.
From the hardwood floors to the granite countertops, this home is beautifully furnished. The Master Bedroom Suite leaves nothing to be desired with cathedral wood ceilings, bay windows, and his and hers baths including a walk-in granite double shower. The deck off this bedroom allows for more intimate sun bathing or star gazing! And a spectacular morning sunrise!
The fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances is open to the great room with French doors and bay windows that offer a phenomenal view of the lakefront. The adjoining wet bar room has its own seating area including a granite top booth.
This one of a kind property is directly across from the Put-In-Bay Airport perfect for private pilots.

Great for Fall Girls Getaway
Overall a great place.
Great living area for a group and beautiful views
Quiet location but within minutes of everything. Master bedroom was huge with great views. There are alot of birds with nests on back deck but we got use to them. The airport nearby was entertaining - watched vintage planes take off. Rented an 8 person golf cart to travel the island.
Beautiful property but needs some tender loving care.
We have stayed here a couple times over the past 5 years and overall we have had a great experience. This last stay we noticed the home was deteriorating (this is a log home) and was in need of some updating and repairs. Beautiful property and we love the location.
This was one of the nicest vacation homes I've ever stayed at.. Great location, beautiful view! Awesome kitchen and really cool bar area. Pretty much no complaints. The neighbor was a little rude and wish that there was a working outdoor grill. Other than that, everything was top notch!!
Thank you for your review. We did replace the grill. It worked for cleaning it. But that is short lived to burn off grate. We appreciate you took the time to review.
Wonderful family reunion location
The home was lovely, clean, spacious, and well-appointed. Even better than expected.
The kitchen and bar have everything you could need for entertaining. There are many areas for togetherness or solo time.
The front yard is large and well-kept with a great covered porch facing the lake. Plenty of outdoor seating. The views are wonderful from the lawn or from the upstairs balcony.
Inside the furniture was good quality and comfy.
We would definitely consider staying here again!
My thoughts on other reviewers' comments:
"Bugs" - the entire island gets Mayflies in early June every year. There was not a bug problem in the house.
Birds - plentiful (and messy in places) but we were never bothered by them.
Wi-Fi worked well the entire time.
Sherry was communicative before and during the stay. We made sure to have the place clean in time for check-out and there was no problem. Just be sure to read the contract details and ask her if you have any questions.
There were a few closets/cabinets marked "owner only" and this was fine. There was plenty of room to put our luggage.
Some travel tips: there is one bathroom with tub/shower downstairs. There is one full bathroom attached to one half-bathroom upstairs -- both inside the huge Master bedroom. This could be awkward if the people staying together are not family or close friends. The downstairs bathroom shower has minimal pressure and the water, while safe, has a strong sulfur odor. We recommended that folks shower in the phenomenal Master bathroom which has a great rainshower and no bad odor.
The upstairs non-master bedroom will get hot if the door is left open due to the high ceilings of the common room. However, if you close the door the bedroom will get good AC. Our bed was very comfy.
The downstairs small bedroom has a twin (and trundle underneath). It is perfect for a child or single traveler.
Sound travels well so keep this in mind if sharing the rental with several romantic couples or children. We used the large floor fan as white noise.
FYI: We brought bottled water for cooking, drinking, and brushing teeth. (We have been coming to the island for decades and do this no matter where we stay.)
It's a great space and we recommend it highly. Enjoy your stay on Put-in-Bay!
Thank you for your kind and honest words about your experience. We appreciate the fact you took the time for your thoughts to put them in a review. We do have some maintenance to address and will do so when we have some available space in our calendar without interrupting the guests stay.
Nice Location, Significant Issues
This property is in a good location with a great view of the lake and has some updated amenities. Unfortunately, the experience was diminished by dysfunctional equipment, excessive number of birds and unresponsive/ incompetent management. Upon arrival, we immediately noticed the Wi-Fi was inoperable. We notified Sherry, and her response (after telling us to unplug it and plug it back in, which we had already done, having two in our group highly computer savvy) was to give us the technical support number. This was inappropriate, as obviously we have very little account information. However, they still ran remote diagnostics and determined they would need to be on-site to fix the issue. I notified Sherry of this July 3 at 9:43 AM and she did not respond in any format until July 6 at 11:34 AM. Long story short, no Wi-Fi the entire week and no legitimate or serious effort to rectify the problem. Other issues included two of the three toilets needed plunging consistently (over 20 times total); burned out lights; dirty and wet laundry left in the dryer. One of the refrigerators in the bar area does not seal properly, and leaks consistently; the other one is either a freezer or does not cool enough to use, so it is basically inoperable. Obvious signs that this property had not been well taken care of or prepared for our stay. Of the upstairs bathrooms, both are in the master bedroom which is not only odd, but inconvenient. This means that whoever is staying in the second bedroom upstairs must go into the master bedroom to use "their" bathroom. Outside would be excellent- except for the birds. There are dozens if not hundreds of birds constantly flying around the decks due to the fact they have let them build nests all over the house. There is so much bird residue on the one deck that it is totally unusable- we didn't use it once. There is a nest above the door on the upstairs deck in which residue comes directly onto the handle of that door, and is caked on. There is a hand-written note on a copy of the contract inside the house that states "Birds come to the island too!". Well this is an obvious and sophomoric statement, and an admission that they know this is an issue. But the fact that birds exist doesn't mean you have to let hundreds of them make the rental property their home. There are environmentally friendly ways of dealing with this; if the note were accurate it would say: we value the birds experience of these decks as much or more than our renters.
In response to John. We did address the WI-FI timely. It worked when we left on the July 1, he text me at 3:43 and I responded at 3:48 within 5 minutes. And then called the technical support. With responding with him on what they said and giving him the technical support number. With not being present on the property there was nothing I could do at that point. John would have to do the steps they were asking to get it analyzed correctly. He told me the technician was coming on Monday. There was nothing I could do over the holiday weekend. With him then texting me the technician did not show up on Monday July 6 so I did respond then I will contact them. The Technician was scheduled for July 8, the day he checked out. In my experience over the past three years in this rental once a guests does not get something important to them they will pick the place apart. It is not a palace and does have maintenance being on the lake. The birds are purple martins and they do eat the bugs. They are a protected bird in Ohio. Which limits what you can do to alleviate them. We have knocked down the nests and they build bigger stronger and more of them almost to say we rule! This year has been the worst! We have limited time during the season for extra items to be done since we have been booked every day since June 1 with 5 hour increments of work time. We do wash down the patios and decks with blowing away any debris. The water is well water and if it sits and not used it will smell sulfuric. We have two filtering systems and have it tested monthly. The tests come back the water is safe. When addressing the issues with John over the phone I got the I do not know I was not staying in that area and not using them?? We put in the contract about maintenance issues out of our control. We do the best we can. We too have stayed at places in Florida with issues but make the best of our vacation despite any issues. It is the nature of renting another property. We do offer discounted rates for the next stay and try to accommodate our guests. Some guests just resist all that you offer and seem to not be happy no matter what you try. It is a shame the highlight of the stay was the WI-FI. There is much more beauty to this place than the WI-FI and television! The laundry that was left in the dryer was rags and rugs and should of been dry. It was just another item of complaint because of not being able to get the WI-FI running. Sherry
