Just this past weekend (9/2014) we had the pleasure of spending 2 nights at the Farrell House Lodge with 2 other couples. Wow, what a treasure. If ever in the area there should be only one place to consider staying! From the amazing staff to the gracious owner, Doug - everyone was engaging and kind. The grounds are breath taking, make sure you take time to visit the very impressive and very old Oak on the property and enjoy all the luxuries Farrell House has to offer. I believe the Farrell House is just how traveling and vacationing was ment to be!

What a find! We don't fish but I absolutely love the grounds and the ponds filled with trout. It was such a peaceful place to relax with rustic elegance. The rooms were decorated beautifully and clean. The owner graciously moved us to another room when (Room 2) had a mattress softer than I cared for. Breakfast was adequate. There was a nice choice of wines and beers, available in the evening, on the honor system. We chose this over hotels that all seems fairly ordinary, and this was a great location to which we will return. Steve and Eileen Litchfield, Greenville Ohio

Our family was fortunate to stay at Farrell House Lodge at Sunnybrook Trout Club the weekend of my daughter's wedding held at nearby Mon Ami Winery. It was so wonderful to have all 20 of us staying together, celebrating this joyous occasion. The wedding of course was the highlight of the weekend, but our stay at the Farrell House added so much to our family's celebration. We felt like we were living in our own grand southern mansion! The grounds were stunning which made for amazing pictures. Some of us enjoyed fishing and using the row boat and the paddle boat on the lake. Others gathered in the game room to play pool and others savored the chance to relax on the rocking chairs overlooking the serene trout stream. There was something for everyone to enjoy. The house was so beautiful and well kept. Each family group was able to have their own rooms with bathrooms attached for privacy, and then we were all able to gather together as a family in the dining room, main living room and outside deck area. It was just perfect! The staff could not have been more accommodating. They were all so kind and went out of their way to make our stay as wonderful as it could possibly be. The food was delicious and the breakfast buffet they provided the morning after the wedding was amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We all want to return for a family reunion in the future and I'm sure my husband and I will be back for a weekend away. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we visit the Port Clinton/Sandusky area again. Thank you, Doug, and your entire staff!

A group of friends has met at Farrell House Lodge on several occasions. The three most recent at Christmastime. A lovely setting and tiptop service! Even came downstairs in the morning to a beautiful fire blazing in the fireplace. Totally enjoy this bed and breakfast and looking forward to many more stays there.

Doug is a hands on owner with a love for this property and an ability to make your stay the awesome. The home and grounds are beautiful. If you want to rest and spend time alone in the beauty of God's nature but close to everything, this is for you. We had such a great time and plan on coming back to enjoy all of the grounds, bridges and beauty. Not to mention spending more time talking with Doug. They even placed our motorcycles in a garage out of the rain. See you next summer Doug. Jimmy, Catherine, Therese and Bill

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the lodge. What a wonderful experience! Doug was so hospitable, as was the rest of the staff that we encountered, Chef Greg and Stephanie. We blindly made the reservation after viewing the website and reading the positive reviews. This is the best kept secret ever. The lodge has been beautifully restored and cleaner than any place we have ever visited. We walked the 130 acres of land only to become more enchanted with the grounds and trout stream. We would highly recommend the lodge and will be visiting many times in the future. Cindy and Randy, Ohio

Spent a night on our way back to Chicago. Very nice rooms and a wonderful set of grounds. Good dinner. Best is the warmth and hospitality of the owners. We will return on our next road rip.

Laid back yet attentive innkeepers, delicious made-to-order breakfast, cozy bedroom with soft, great smelling sheets and a comfortable bed amid beautiful surroundings. Don't miss out on a peaceful evening after a day of crazy excitement at Cedar Point (only 15 min away). There's is no place better to stay than Farrell House Lodge!

I almost hate to provide a review because I don't want competition next time we go. The Farrell House was simply wonderful. They have great public areas and land to walk. The late night glass of wine after a long day was perfect. I guess the easiest way to explain was that my wife said, "This is perfect. You made a great choice."

My husband and I just returned from a one night stay at the Farrell House and Lodge. This was our first experience at a Bed & Breakfast, so we weren't sure what to expect. The room was very spacious and clean and had all of the comforts of home. The staff was very friendly and the complimentary breakfast was fantastic. My favorite part of the stay, however, was the magnificent grounds that surrounded the Lodge. My husband and I were both speechless as we walked the acres of flowing streams and weeping willows. It was an experience I will never forget. Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing a little piece of heaven with us.
