This was a very nice place that I went to with my family. Close enough to the town and shops that the walk was short. Very clean and very comfortable. I highly recommend this place that has a pool and a grill.

I have to write because our group had a very similar issue to the woman below. We too were having a bachelorette party and coming from all parts of the US. I was in from Chicago! Dennis or Denny watched every single move our group made. It was kind of funny because some of the women were married and have... More

Great little room. The staff was courteous and very nice. The locations was convenient to downtown, quiet and clean! Plus they have golf carts available at a discount when you stay there! Will definitely stay again!

My fiance and I stayed at Harriet's House Wednesday evening and absolutely loved it. The business is owned by a lovely couple named Denny & Linda and from the moment we checked in they did nothing but try to help us. There was a minor hiccup with the payment processing but Linda quickly got it sorted and we were on... More

Denny and Linda are GREAT! We appreciated that they were around if something was needed or just questions about the Island. As for those who have posted about the owners making you follow the rules. Well They are the rules and you signed the agreement! We had a BLAST the townhouse was Clean Clean Clean and the decorations were modern... More

The location of this property is ideal: walking distance from the pools, bars, boardwalk and restaurants. The sleeping accommodations were ideal, as we were a full house! The decor was fresh, and everything was brand new/clean. That said, that is where the positives end and the troubles begin! READ ON IF YOU'RE CONSIDERING RENTING FROM THESE OWNERS AND EXPECT TO...

Dennis R, Owner at Harriet's House & Island Suites, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Most of our guests choose us for the two great reasons you list: we are right in the heart of downtown Put-in-Bay within walking distance of everything, and our accommodations are debatably the cleanest on the island! We appreciate reviews from our customers, both good and not so good. It... More

Denny and Linda were great. The place was very clean and the staff was very responsive to any request we had. It is a family owned operation with a close eye on the property, which we really didn't mind because they didn't bother us. However, they were also around to make sure their property wasn't destroyed. It is Put in... More

Our second stay at the lodge ( the former admiral bodees) and it could not have been better. The rooms are spotless, the owners are awesome and the fact that you can rent a golf cart with your room make this the BEST place to stay on put in bay. Hope for a return trip before the summers over!

Hosts Denny and Linda are very thoughtful and attentive to the needs of all their guests. Their guest rooms/bungalows,cottages are always clean and well appointed - located behind the main drag with all the music and action but quiet enough to sleep if you want. Denny makes sure the property is safe and secure. Perfect for small or large groups.... More

My party of six really enjoyed our stay at Admiral Bodes (next door to Harriet's House) over the holiday weekend. Denny and Linda set us up with a wonderful cook out on the private deck in the back yard along with all kinds of wonderful island hospitality. They truly made us all feel like long time family friends. We can't... More
