About Tomi Johnson

Mike and Tomi Johnson are long time Catawba Island residents who have enjoyed living near the ferry for 38 years in the same 1890 home. Mike now retired and helping both his wife and son with their businesses, worked very hard to make this a special place to visit. Tomi is busy managing a successful 35 year career in vacation home sales, andfelt that a shortage of weekly vacation rentals in the area merited

Tomi Johnson purchased this chalet in 2003

Why Tomi Johnson chose Port Clinton

As I said we have thoroughly enjoyed this location, the casual excitement of the visitors to our area makes us appreciate what we experience everyday here. When someone talks about their alarm clock, I mention my "ferry whistle alarm" and when they ask "do you have a boat?" I say YES it is huge and holds hundreds of passengers and leaves the dock every half hour for the islands!

What makes this chalet unique

No need to find a parking space to visit the island you can walk right around the corner to the dock!

Good vacation

  • 3 of 5

Location was awesome! Interior was attractively decorated. There were 4 adults and a 2 year old in our party. When we were all in the living room, there was not enough seating. And Hopefully, the cleaning staff have improved. We found a lot to do while there! Good vacation!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had an exceptional stay. Home was well equipped, very clean, well decorated and comfortable. We had 4 kids and 4 adults with us. The four little girls loved the loft which had two twin beds and a king.....also their own bathroom! The sleeper sofa was used as well as downstairs bed room. House is literally a 5 minute walk to Miller ferry which takes you over to put n bay. This house has a wonderful location....we were within a half hour drive or less to anywhere we wanted to go, including cedar point, many beaches, Marblehead lighthouse, Thomas Edison museum, and many great restaraunts. Owner was very attentive to any needs or questions. We highly recommend this lovely home!

Cozy Cottage near the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house located near the lake and convenient to the Ferry that goes to Put On Bay. The house was set up perfect for three of us. Two of our travelers were unable to come, but it still would have been perfect for a family of 5. The house is very comfortable, nicely decorated, nice back porch, fire pit. We spend our beach time at East Harbor state park, which is not too far away. We went to Cedar Point for some wild rides, spent a day traveling to the Football Hall of Fame, saw the Marblehead lighthouse, spent an afternoon at the water park, and we had dinner at Crosswinds Restaurant & Bar. There is lots do to in the area, along with taking the ferry to Put on Bay. Was concerned with the ferry being so close and it going in and out every 30 minutes, that the horn would bother us. But it never did. Only heard it a couple of times and we were always outside. Never heard it while in the house, so it never disturbed our quiet evening.

I would recommend any quests bring a bike. The area is nice and flat without a lot of traffic. There are several state parks, and local parks around the area.

Great place! Would come back again. Thanks Toni for your hospitality.
