“Once in a lifetime dream vacation!…”

We spent 5 nights in Put In Bay after our wedding!
Amy P.
The hospitality and helpful suggestions never stopped all week. The rooms were clean and so was the HOT TUB... We originally were only staying Friday and Saturday, but we enjoyed it so much that my boyfriend surprised me with an extra night :) ... Just the thought is making me want to be back there right now. We enjoyed the atmosphere at the outside tiki bars and met some great new friends... Every guest was treated special. The entire staff knows our first name and the love of the island people will be in our hearts forever...
