About Terry Haas
I have been coming here since I was 5 yeas old camping with my family when they first opened the State Park. My parents bought this house in 1970 and I have been living here just about every summer since. Planning on being a year round resident!
Terry Haas purchased this Cottage in 1970
Why Terry Haas chose Kelleys Island
Vacations time is precious and this is the place to truly relax and embrace nature. Plenty of things to do to stay active too! You can ride a bike just about everywhere, take a hike on the many trails through the wooded areas, preserves and wetlands. Kayak rentals available at the State Park beach and if you have your own scuba gear, explore the offshore shipwrecks around the island.
What makes this Cottage unique
Location. Close enough for a short walk downtown yet far enough away to enjoy a quiet and relaxing retreat. The front porch is everyone's favorite spot. We have a large yard for you to enjoy many activities such as volleyball, horse shoes, croquet, corn hole, etc. Enjoy the large fire pit in the evenings!

We LOVED our stay at the “Captain’s Quarters!” We were super close to downtown and had everything we could have needed. The porch was perfect! We had a relaxing and fun girls’ weekend and wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks Terry!
I'm so glad you had such a good time and found everything you needed here at the Captain's Quarters to be comfortable and enjoyed your stay. The porch is everyone's favorite place to either relax or be entertained! And as you found out, just a short walk to downtown!
We had a great vacation here. Wonderful cottage, great location-walking distance to downtown and close proximity to beach. Loved front porch!
So happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here at The Captain's Quarters. Hope to see you again next time you visit Kelleys Island!
Very nice location
Thank you again for a very nice stay, the location was perfect. The house was very clean and spacious enough. We loved the porch:)
Thank you again for the great stories Terry.
Thank you! You really must have loved that porch, the few times I drove by you were on the swing! I couldn't even tell you were in the rest of the house you left it so clean! The weekend seemed to fly by. Happy to hear you had a great time! Enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you again next year!
Great house in an even better location!
Terry provided us with a wonderful experience. The location of the house made it very easy to get to the local convenience store and all island bars. House was clean and organized. Extra large yard provided privacy which was great. As others have mentioned, the stairs are very steep and narrow and could prove to be difficult for young children or older adults. As long as you are aware, this should not deter you from booking this place. We had no difficulties with any air conditioning as one other reviewer stated. Very warm weekend and we stayed perfectly comfortable. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a great house in a great location. Thank you for a great weekend Terry!
Thank you! I'm so happy you had a wonderful time here at The Captain's Quarters. Hope to see you again!
It was perfect for our weekend getaway!
Beautiful one acre property with a great fire pit, firewood supplied! House was neat as a pin, century home full of charm. Easy walk to town. Perfect size for 3 adults. Front porch swing was nothing short of therapeutic.
Thank you! Happy to hear you enjoyed staying here at The Captain's Quarters. And happy you enjoyed and appreciated the charm of this old house. Yes, and that porch and the swing! Everybody's favorite spot. Hope to see you again next time you visit Kelleys Island!
Ideal home away from home for a week or a weekend.
Terry has a nicely decorated, century-old home great for a couple, a family or a small group. There were 4 of us so it worked well. Only one bathroom so this could be an issue; also, the stairwell to the second floor is quite steep which may prove difficult for some. The room air conditioners worked well and the front porch was awesome. This home really is very accessible to downtown, the ferry and the Jet Express to South Bass Island. The State Park and Glacial Grooves were a short ride to the north of the Island. It worked for us and made for a nice time away. Thank you Terry.
Thank you! I'm so happy you had a great stay here at the Captain's Quarters. Hope to see you again!
