A great place with great views and a wonderful host!

My wife and I stayed for one night on August 29th, 2013 and we had a wonderful time. Denny and Chris were very nice and easy going which made our stay even more enjoyable. The Captains Room view and layout is outstanding! Wish we could have stayed longer than one day. Definitely will be back.

awesome stay

My wife and I stayed one night and felt very at home and both of us loved sitting down by the lake watching the beautiful sunset over the lake while drinking a bottle of wine. Couldn't ask for a better view. The room was nice n cozy with everything we needed even w our own bathroom. The hospitality was very welcoming also. To bad that the place is up for sale.

Spectacular views from the bedrooms!

4.8 on November 12, 2012

The pictures don't do justice to the views from this B&B - my partner and I stayed in the Lighthouse Room and felt like we were ON the water when we looked out the window. Our room was wonderfully cozy, the owner and staff were very friendly, and the deck right on the water was incredible. We really appreciated having cold soft drinks and light snacks available at all times, and loved picking a good movie from their video library to snuggle up to once we'd tucked ourselves in for the night. Next time, we'll be sure to stay for more than one night!

Great view

3.0 on September 25, 2012

We had a great view of the lake from the captain's room, We haven't gone to a B & B in eons, so this was a big treat. We didn't have access to the kitchen, or should I say, we weren't invited to use the kitchen. It would have been nice to be able to have access to hot tea or coffee throughout the day. The owner also wasn't really there after serving breakfast, so if you had questions you probably have to call him.

Lovely Getaway

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the Captain's suite and had a spectacular window view of the lake. We do not live near water like that, so it was a bit of heaven to be able to open the windows and hear the crash of the waves upon the lake. Denny and his daughter were so nice and accomodating. We will definitely return again if we get the opportunity.

This B&B is in an awesome location. The view from our window was breath-taking. Our host was extremely kind. The rooms we used were very clean and inviting. I was not sure what to expect with the breakfast. This part reminded me of a hotel stay. However, breakfast company was interesting and friendly. We were close to Kelley's Island and visited the Marblehead Lighthouse. This was our first visit to a bed and breakfast. We will definitely do this again.

good value

3.2 on August 22, 2011

The location was great, right on the lake, but I found the breakfast disappointing. Many other Bed and Breakfast Inns serve warm breakfasts and that is what I expected. Don't get me wrong, the food was sufficient, just not what I expected. The host was very nice, as was the rest of the staff. I would go back here any time, though!

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry to disappoint any guest but we "advertise" and provide a generous continental breakfast starting with hot sausage or ham, cold fruit, yogurt, hardboiled eggs and microwave pancakes and then have room temperature pastry, bagels and assorted breads and cereals. We do respect and appreciate the opinions of our guests.

Wonderful little gem, most relaxing place on earth!

We loved our stay at Sunset Shores! The hosts were wonderful, very happy and converstional, but also gave us our own space. We stayed in the captain suite which is definitely worth the extra money. Wonderful view, air conditioned, lots of closet and dresser space, great shower, comfy bed. Breakfast was perfect, very healthy choices and alot of variety. My favorite part of the stay were the common areas in the house. The deck is just beautiful of course. The porch is great too with tons of games to play while looking at the lake. Everywhere in the house there is something to do and the hosts pay great attention to detail by offering books, games, movies and lots of relaxing things to do. We loved every minute of it and will be back again and again!

A wonderful getaway!

This is an outstanding value. Denny was more than helpful and maintains a wonderful house. The views of the lake and the pace of the community definitely made this stay worthwhile.
