Awesome Stay!

Ashley's bed and breakfast gets top ratings from us. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The location is perfect to all the bars and restaurants. The people who worked there were extremely friendly. I recommend anyone staying on the island to check out this place!

Best Place to Stay in Put In Bay

Ashley's House is in the perfect location and within walking distance to the best part of downtown. The rooms have their own bathrooms, so it is very much private for a B&B. We used the bikes offered by the hotel and also rented a golf cart. Driving the island was one of the best parts of the vacation. This B&B is definately the best kept secret on the island.

We have never stayed at a bed and breakfast before although we have visited the island every year since I can't remember when....we were invited to to do so by some friends who have stayed at Ashley's in the past and have really enjoyed it.....I was so glad we stayed....such a lovely home and the owners and people working there were just fabulous....they gave us such great suggestions on places to visit and to eat......what a great time all four of us had and will definitely return to stay on the island again and at Ashley's........we would highly recommend if you have plans to stay overnight on the island to check with them.......Very Very Nice.....

We had such a wonderful time. Came over for the day and decided to come the same weekend every year as we made such wonderful friends.

Perfect place for a getaway

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast, but it won't be the last. We truly enjoyed the home and the fantastic service. Everyone made us feel so welcome and at home. The home's location is also perfect - close enough to Delaware Street, but yet far enough away. It's the perfect place for a getaway!

Anniversary getaway!

My husband and I had the most wonderful weekend here. It sits very close to downtown Put-in-Bay, yet was just far enough to peacefully sit on the porch anytime and enjoy! Rooms were gorgeous & immaculate, hospitality superb, complimentary breakfasts just splendid and we will not choose to stay anywhere else whenever we visit Put-in-Bay in the future!!

A sunflower stay.

The only place we stay on Put-In-Bay!

We stay at Ashley's every year. Judy always remembers us and knows we like Room 1 (quite spacious and has its own bathroom). Many of the rooms have their own bathrooms. Judy, Bob & now Kelly are very helpful. We were allowed to borrow several of the house bikes to tour the island. Their breakfast is very good; includes hard-boiled eggs, which my husband needs for protein in the a.m.! Having the use of swimming pools at nearby hotels is a nice plus. We do avoid weekends as we are not into the bar scene. The air conditioning feels great on a hot summer day! Nice antique furniture and quaint themed decor. Last week was probably our 7th stay there. We love it at Ashley's!

Our Home Away From Home

During our anniversary we love to come here and relax. We like the hominess of Ashley's Island House and the owner is a doll! We love it here! And we always will. Thanks, Judy!!
