Starting a tradition

4.4 on October 26, 2014

We were looking for a place to stay for the weekend to celebrate our 5 yr anniversary. Budget, driving time, and a hot tub were the primary factors. At a fairly reasonable 'off-season' price and a 2 1/2 hr drive I had only one hurdle to jump. Swim-Spa....need I say more? You are taking a risk when a hot tub is advertised as you have no clue its age, condition, size, etc. Let's just say this one was large enough for 6 adults and a couple more if they didn't mind not having a seat. The breakfast was delicious and they accommodated my wife's food allergy with no issue. The owners are very knowledgeable of the surrounding area though if you are wanting numerous shops and quaint downtown atmosphere I wouldn't rate this among the most attractive of options. There are definitely a few neat places but don't plan on shopping all day. The pictures don't do the home justice as it is a gorgeous place. Our room had a shower with two rain style shower heads and four wall mounted spraying jets. I'll be mimicking their design in a future bathroom overhaul! Incelredibly relaxing after a dip in the swim-spa or day of driving/walking around.

A Lake Erie Tradition

5 on September 10, 2013

We started this tradition back in 2011 and won't stay anywhere else. The accomodations, breakfast and innkeepers, Bart & Sandy are beyond stellar.

Relaxing, Wonderful Waterfront Location, Gracious and Fun Hosts

5 on September 04, 2013

Our 4 night stay at "Our Sunset Place" on Catawba Island was wonderful. It was the perfect place to start our day thanks to Bart's perfectly brewed coffee and Sandy's delectable, gourmet breakfast. When they say "on the water" they mean it! Our well appointed room had an unobstructed view of Lake Erie. Being just steps from the water made for a convenient morning swim. "Our Sunset Place's" oversized hot tub was a welcome activity one cool afternoon. Clean and comfortable, we wholeheartedly recommend "Our Sunset Place"! Our gracious hosts, Bart and Sandy, always went the extra distance to make our stay exceptional, can't wait for our next visit!

A great Bed and Breakfast

This is a great place to stay! Sandy makes delicious breakfasts. The beds are comfortable and all the rooms are awesome. Sandy and Bart are friendly and they make you feel at home!

best B&B ever

5 on August 25, 2013

August 2013: You can't ask for anything better. Great Host and Hostess with knowledge of the area, sites to see and places to go. Breakfast will become your best meal of the day as Sandy sends you off with a meal that is fit for a king. Each room is totally unique and beyond comfortable. But the best is the sunsets seen while sitting on the deck. Lake Erie is at your feet and the sun sets 'just for you'. Come one Come all - you will not be disappointed

One of a Kind!

Before we even arrived Sandy and Bart exceeded our expectations. The location and scenery are amazing. The room and linens were very clean along with the rest of the common areas. The breakfast was five star, Sandy you are the best. From sunrise to sunset, my wife and I enjoyed every moment of our first anniversary together here... Couldn't of asked for anything more, and when we did, Bart and Sandy did what they could to make it happen. We will be back!

A Refreshing Getaway!

4.8 on August 07, 2013

We had a lovely and relaxing two night stay with Bart and Sandy's warm and friendly hospitality. The accommodations were well appointed and decorated in a comfortable and unfussy, yet tasteful style. Beautiful bathrooms! The breakfasts were delicious and very ample - not much need for lunch. Taken on the deck, the setting was completely refreshing. We took full advantage of the hot tub. Best of all were our hosts themselves, so warm and inviting we felt like we'd known them for a long time. We'd definitely return!

What a gem!

We stayed for two nights and were very impressed with the hospitality shown by Bart and Sandy, meal preparation, location, and overall design of the property. If you have an opportunity to enjoy breakfast on their deck, that's a great way to start the day. This has to be the best BnB in the area. We stayed at another BnB nearby for two nights another time, and thedifference is amazing. You won't be disappointed.
