Property at a Glance: Island Club

There’s a tiny speck of land off the coast of Lake Erie, between Toledo and Cleveland, called South Bass Island. It’s only three miles long from tip to tip, but there’s plenty to see and do, ranging from eclectic museums and a historic lighthouse to a winery and quaint downtown, lined with shops and restaurants. Situated on the island’s southern tip, The Island Club’s homes occupy 3.5 acres of property. Each is outfitted with three bedrooms, two baths and a full kitchen. Guests are within walking distance from all the island has to offer.

  • Sightsee all over the island with a four person golf-cart rental, which is included with this deal
  • Recommended hiking: From the property, you’re within walking distance of South Bass Island State Park—keep an eye out for salamanders, turtles, and bald eagles.

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 stature 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 off 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.
