Don’t take our word for it. See what our guests have to say about their stay at our Put-in-Bay housing!
Cabin 111 was a perfect fit for our group. It was incredibly nice on the inside and a great location. I called the rental place multiple times before and during our stay and they were always extremely helpful. Can’t recommend them enough!
Was perfect in every way! Have stayed at the Island Club Condos for years. Won’t go anywhere else! #77 has been our favorite so far!
I booked island club Waterfront condo for my friends bachelor party. There were 11 of us total and the trip was an absolute success. The view of the bay was breathtaking and the Condo was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The added convenience of them providing golf carts and shuttle services to and from the ferry was an added bonus. The trip was so successful that my buddies and their wife’s are already planning another trip up. Best place to stay in Put-in-bay!
