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 in Lake Erie. 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 with an oversize golf-cart rental for the duration of your stay.

  • Cheer on the home team at the Buckeye Tiki Bar, where you can use your included beverage credit.
  • Indoor and outdoor pools mean you can go swimming all year long. (There’s also a 10-person hot tub.)
  • Spacious accommodations: Choose the two-bedroom suite for room for six people, or the two-queen room for space for four.
  • Why visit now: Put-in-Bay hosts live musical performances and other events into October at various 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 it's 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.

Great Groupon as it included a golf cart -- would not stay at this resort without one as it is pretty far from town, etc. Clean facility, friendly staff.

Wouldn't mind staying there next time, only before season ends, weather can get cold in September.

If we could ask for one thing differently, it would be to have checkout around noon or 1 pm. Going to the Island with friends means staying out late to PARTY! Getting up, eating breakfast, showering and packing up before 11 was impossible!

I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Bay Lodging. The rooms were spacious and clean, it was far enough away from the bustle of the strip yet close enough to be there in no time flat. The staff was friendly and helpful. Great experience!!!
