If you're looking for a wonderful place to get away to--and it's not too early to be thinking about Spring and the "Biggest Week in American Birding 2014"--consider the Five Bells Inn. Eileen and Jerry are warm and friendly hosts who provide comfortable accommodations (including a hot tub!) in a wonderful setting, complete with gorgeous sunsets over Lake Erie and... More

Arriving late (after dark) in an unfamiliar place is always a concern, but the 5BI is easy to find, and Eileen was efficiently welcoming upon our arrival and we were able to settle in and were resting and relaxing in no time. We woke, as expected, to chilly, damp weather, but the day quickly improved to an ideal sunny, crisp,... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely bed & breakfast over Labor Day weekend (3 nights). We had room #4, which is in the main house. This bright sunny yellow room is nice, and although it doesn't have a shower, it has a jacuzzi tub. YAY! (We knew in advance that it didn't have a shower). The weather was... More

We are a young couple who celebrated our anniversary and this was a perfect quiet weekend getaway for couples of all ages. I recommend staying inside the Inn (not the detached cottages) all have private bathrooms. The innkeepers were welcoming and breakfast included homemade muffins and breads as well as waffles, which was delicious. Coffee is hot and going all... More

This little gem is on a road that takes travelers to the Ferry, with a nice lake view facing west. This affords guests warmly lit rooms at sunset. They have rooms that are not in the main house - which we prefer when staying at a Bed and Breakfast.

We just returned from an overnight at the Five Bells, and we were completely happy with our stay. We needed a last-minute, close-to-home getaway to recharge our batteries and reconnect with each other, and the Five Bells let us do both. Eileen and Jerry met us on Saturday, gave us recommendations for dinner, then got out of our way. We... More

This was our second stay at the Inn. We knew what we were looking for in a short Lake Erie stay and remembered our previous stay here. Jerry and Eileen were very hospitable and professional. We stayed in room 7 which is adjacent to the lagoon. Our room was clean, comfortable, and air conditioned and we got exactly what we... More

My wife and I stayed at the Five Bells Inn adjacent to Lake Erie during the "Biggest Week in American Birding." The hospitality of our hosts was great. They provided early breakfast (6:30 a.m.) for us and other birders. The grounds are very attractive and well-kept. There is an active Bald Eagle nest on the property, as well as a... More

What a fantastic place. Wonderful setting. Great hospitality. I could not have asked for a more beautiful and warm place to propose to my bride!

The web site did not explain that there is a main house and two add'l cottages. One has 3sep. Rooms and the other is the fam. cot. We chose (against better judgement) the fam cott for convenience. It had a very moldy smell and the shower was not mildew free. The owners were very friendly, but they really need to... More
