Hotel at a Glance: Bay Lodging Resort

Bay Lodging Resort lies a few blocks inland from downtown Put-in-Bay, a coastal community on the northern shores of South Bass Island. The island is small and parking is limited, so residents usually rely on bicycles and golf carts to get around. With this Getaway, you can cruise around town like a local: your stay includes a golf-cart rental.

  • Cheer on the home team at the Buckeye Tiki Bar, where you can use your included beverage credit.
  • Indoor and outdoor pools as well as a 10-person hot tub.
  • Why visit now: Put-in-Bay hosts live musical performances into October at pubs and saloons around town.

Put-in-Bay, Ohio: Quaint Lake Erie Village on South Bass Island

South Bass Island is small, with just 128 permanent residents. You can walk the width of the island’s largest part in about 30 minutes. But don’t let South Bass Island’s diminutive size fool you—there’s plenty to do. Because of its located in Lake Erie, South Bass Island has long attracted visitors as a summer destination. Swing by Put-in-Bay’s downtown area to grab a bite or kick back with a brew until the wee hours. Nearly all of the island’s attractions are within walking distance, but if you’d rather not hoof it, you can scoot around the island like a lot of locals do—in a golf cart.

Part of the island’s importance lies in its naval history. In 1813, naval commander Oliver Hazard Perry sailed from Put-in-Bay to attack a fleet of British ships during the Battle of Lake Erie. Today, Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial commemorates the battle with a 350-foot Doric column that overlooks Lake Erie. An elevator whisks visitors to an open-air observation deck atop the structure.

Just around the corner, other wineries offer the opportunity to sniff, swirl, and sip an array of wines and grape juices during a tasting before touring the geode, whose walls are covered in crystals that measure up to 18 inches long.

Customer Reviews

Chris made us feel very welcome; we were provided a room upgrade which provided us two bedrooms which we were really grateful for and the bathroom still worked out for us since we needed special (handicap) accommodations. We had a great time!
