About the Property

Spacious 4 BR 2 BA Historic Homestead /Weekly rentals only please

A spacious historic property on Kelleys Island that is the ultimate getaway for rest and relaxation. This homestead was the First Wine Cellar north of Cincinnati. Located on the south shore of the island, 'Rock Haven' is a 15-minute walk from Downtown Kelleys or West Bay Inn Bar and Restaurant.

The first floor consists of a roomy updated kitchen with an island; large dining area with Amish built table and chairs; 1 full bath; washer and dryer area; and a unique gathering room with floor to ceiling windows, 2 sofas, a large round table with chairs perfect for appetizers, dinner or a round of cards and a refurbished 13 ft. Lyman boat that is now the bar. Perfect for concocting evening cocktails while watching the sunset out on the deck. A door leads you from this unique room onto a 2,000 square foot 3-level deck with a 6-person hot tub, 2 picnic tables, lounge chairs for sunning and 2 round tables with umbrellas on the top level.

Beautiful oak stairs lead to the updated second floor featuring 3 bedrooms with ceiling fans with 1 full size bed each, 1 bedroom with 2 twin beds and 1 roomy full bath. A spacious second deck also leads from the second floor hallway for additional outdoor relaxation.

A second set of stairs leads to the third floor with ceiling fans with 2 huge picture windows that allow for a breathtaking view of Lake Erie. Wicker furniture and an old restaurant booth allow for further escape into fun and games or more relaxation.

There is a large front and back yard for unlimited outdoor activities including your own private beach which is across the street. But be sure to bring your old tennis shoes to use while swimming as this is an authentic Kelleys Island limestone beach that is mostly rocks. However, there is plenty of room to put a lawn chair for sensational sunning.

Amenities: Private beach, views of Lake Erie from all rooms.

Full kitchen w/ cookware, dishes and utensils, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, stove, coffee maker, toaster; washer/dryer; Lyman boat bar, 6-person hot tub, 1 TV in gathering room, radio and CD player with indoor and outdoor speakers, large deck, gas grill, deck furniture, bath towels, beach towels, bed linens, ceiling fans in most rooms. No pets and no smoking indoors please.

Area: Will need to take Kelleys Island Ferry Boat Line from Marblehead, Ohio which is approximately 25 minutes from Cedar Point and Sandusky, Ohio. Log on to their website for a boat schedule. Cars are allowed.
