Why PIB Contact chose Put-in-Bay

We live on Put-in-Bay year round. The house has been in our family since the 1870's. It was used as a rental until the family moved into it in 1915. In 1958, it was used as a family vacation home on the yacht club side and rented out to visitors on the Crew's Nest side. It has currently been brought up to modern standards but with old world charm. The Dodge House offers an unparalleled view of the bay from the grand front porch.

Great for Families Visiting Together

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Dodge House the first week of July 2015 with our adult children and their families, a total of eleven people. We enjoyed our stay greatly. The three apartment configuration gave all the families separate spaces and plenty of room. The house, perfect for Put-in-Bay, itself is a fine older property with a lake view located far enough away from the busy downtown but close enough for an easy walk. The kids loved the large front yard and found plenty of places for hide & seek and general running around. The wide porch was excellent for morning coffee, lunch and just relaxing any time. It is also next door to the Crew's Nest, a kind of local country club that you can join during your stay for access to the pool and restaurant. All the apartments were clean and well kept. The only issue was slow and weak wi-fi but that was offset by the fact that we were at >>Put-in-Bay<< so we took it in stride.

We have already recommended the Dodge House to a number of people and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Everyone in the family wants to go back.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The 16 of us had a wonderful time. The home is comfortable and plenty big for everyone to spread out inside and outside. Golf carts are available right across the street and plenty of restaurants in walking distance. We even had a photographer do a family portrait at the state park.

Great family house with lots of room to roam

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week here with three families. The porch was my favorite feature and the yard was great for the kids. Lots to do within walking or biking distance. Each family had lots of private space and then we could gather for community time on the porch or in the yard. My only two negatives were the wifi signal was extremely slow and hard to get sometimes and the kitchens were limited in regards to skillets and serving dishes (we did a lot of in house cooking). But overall we had a wonderful experience at this home! Would highly recommend!!
