Put-in-Bay (South Bass Island) is your destination - there is no way better to really have an Island experience than to stay the night (or more!). There are more lodging choices than ever including cottages, hotels (many newly expanded), bed and breakfasts, cabins, tent and RV camping, condominiums, guest homes and resorts.
Several are located in or near the heart of downtown Put-in-Bay, others are near the lake or tucked into secluded wooded areas. Some lodgings are ideal for night time revelers, others suited for romantic escapes, girlfriend's getaways, or families. Accommodations are easily reached once you are on the island.

Lodging amenities include restaurants and bars, pools for adults or children, live entertainment, whirlpools, meeting and conference rooms for up to 500 people, golf carts, fish cleaning sites, historic backgrounds, pet-friendly rooms and packages. The choice is yours to create your haven right at your lodging, or get out and explore all the attractions and things to do. All of this information is available on the Put-in-Bay Chamber web site. Visit www.visitputinbay.com today for maps, bands, special events, fishing, group rates, plus you can request an "Island Guide" to be mailed to you.

If you wish to spend the night on the island, call and secure your lodging as far in advance as possible. If you decide at the last minute to stay the night, contact the Lake Erie Shores and Islands Welcome Center at 800-441-1271. This Welcome Center is located only six miles south of the Miller Ferry Catawba Dock, on Route 53. You'll find hundreds of free brochures of area lodging, attractions, restaurants, special events, maps, as well as discounts for Put-in-Bay adult passengers aboard Miller Ferry.
