Beautiful modern clean condo sleeps six. Two bedrooms accommodate five guests. Living room couch (very comfortable) would accommodate the sixth guest. Water front view is spectacular. Granite in kitchen and baths. The downstairs master has a king bed, upstairs has a queen and sleeper futon. Brand new appliances. Private balcony includes zero gravity patio lounge chairs with pull out trays, umbrella, and a barbecue grill. Just a short walk over to St. Hazard's Resort is the pool. Ohio State Park is next door, with new multi-million dollar marina complex, campground, and beach. Tour the island by bike (rentals at state park complex) or by golf cart (rentals at J.F. Walleyes Restaurant). Put-In-Bay is a pleasant, half-hour ferry ride away on the "Sonny S" ferry. The "Sonny S" makes several trips a day. Middle Bass was originally named Ile de Fleurs or Island of Flowers, a family-friendly blend of nature and serenity.
Building quiet hours are 11pm to 8am. We maintain a strict noise policy. First call to police for violation of quiet hours, a warning is received. Second call results in expulsion and loss of payment and damage deposit.
Unless you have your own boat or plane, the Island is accessed by the Miller Ferry, (Catawba exit on highway). To bring your vehicle over, you must reserve a spot for it on the ferry, calling 1-800-500-2421 to do so. Check out the Miller Ferry website for rates for people, bikes, and vehicles.
Middle Bass is a smaller, low-key island in comparison to South Bass (Put-In-Bay). There is great pizza (sit down place) at the general store. Two other restaurants are on island. We have had good food at J.F. Walleyes. Lots of people ferry to South Bass for their meals also. For those staying more than a couple of days, we recommend you bring your fresh produce with you, as general store is great but limited with some offerings.
*While there is a flat screen TV for watching DVDs, it does not have cable or satellite reception. So if being discounted from the media is not something you desire, this unit might not be the one for you. There is wireless at the pool.
* No laundry on site. There is a facility at the Marina. Towels and linens provided.
We had a great weekend at Bob's condo. The view was beautiful and we were greeted with a lovely welcome bottle of wine! Very classy touch. The space was all that we needed and loved the upstairs bedroom with the high ceiling and skylight. The kitchen was well stocked and we only needed a short shopping trip for breakfast food. We rented a golf cart which made it easy to get around. If you go on the ferry to Put in Bay or back to Port Clinton, be sure to get to docks in plenty of time because the ferry is very punctual . It was a wonderful weekend and loved every minute! Thank you Bob!
Our family loved the condo and Middle Bass is so much fun. Natalie took very good care of us, she was great. The condo was clean and very comfortable. We look forward to going back again.
Our family enjoyed a few days on this very quaint island this past June and everyone had a great time! Mostly we enjoyed the amazing lake view right from the kitchen table. The Condo was very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The Condo owners were very helpful with any questions. It was so nice to be able to wake up in the morning to the sun rise over the water. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool and riding our bikes around the island. A day's trip to Put in Bay Island was also very fun. This is a great place for relaxation and breath taking views. We look forward to our next visit! We highly recommend this condo.
2 couples rented this property for a weekend getaway. We had a wonderful time on Middle Bass! Hazards was fun and we really enjoyed Walleyes as well. The property is convenient to the ferry over to Put in Bay. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend!
The owner and wife always responded to all our questions very quick. No need to take your car you can walk to everything you need. We recommend staying during the weekdays. We loved the view from the condo. Everything was very clean. I recommend you bring a movie or two for the evening.
The owner & his wife were very prompt to return our emails and answer a few questions. After which, booking was a snap. A few days before our arrival we received a detailed email explaining arrival and departure procedures, all of which were very easy and straight forward. The email also included procedures on how to get to the island, things to do, places to eat, people to meet, and other useful information. When we arrived we were greeted by the property managers who gladly gave us the lay of the land. The condo was very well appointed. Full kitchen loaded with just about everything we needed to make a second home. The pool was very clean and fun. There was a volleyball game going on just about every day. Anyone could play. Food & bar service at the Hazzards was pretty slow but that was mostly because it was a very busy weekend. The bonus of it all, everyone was friendly! Everyone in the condo, the hazzards, the entire island! There was a genuine sense of happiness on the island. We are grateful to have found such a great place to stay on the island.
A few tips...
1. Immediately after booking, call the ferry company and reserve a spot for your vehicle. It cost us about $140 r/t for a family of 5 and a minivan.
2. Grocery shop prior to arriving on the island. There is a very nice and well stocked grocery / convenience store in the island but it may not have all the items you want.
3. Bring bicycles. We never used our van when we got on the island. All our sightseeing was done on bikes. It's a very flat island with lots of fun places to visit.
4. The ferry to Put In Bay is cheap and runs often. We spent one full day there.
I recommend this condo to families of up to 6. It can definitely accommodate more but it becomes very cramped after 6.
