“Simply wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

An excellent Put-In-Bay bed and breakfast, strategically located within minutes of downtown, marina and all the attractions. The building dating 1875 has a lot of character, and up to date amenities. It comes with a great story that the owners, Judy and Bob are more than happy to share. The porch makes the experience whole, as it helps transitioning from the crowded outdoors to the privacy of the rooms. Or just perfect for a chat, a glass of wine and/or people watching. Overall a great experience, you feel you are well taken care of home away from home, as the owners and the staff cater to all your needs. Great breakfast too! Good prices, great services, perfect location, wonderful company, it cannot get any better than that!

We have been going to Ashley House for years. My husband and I first started celebration our anniversary on PIB and stayed at the Hotels downtown. They charge a bundle!!! Twice what Ashley House Charges. Everyone is out of control at those Hotels. You are walking distance to everything! The owners and Kelly are unreal. It's like visiting my "Aunt". I let Judy know of some medical conditions I now have and they all made sure I was confortable. She knew I was going to have a hard time with the stairs so a nice couple agreed to switch rooms with us. So we were surprised when we arrived to find they made sure I was comfortable. I wish we could make the trip several times a year. In all the years we have been going to Ashley House we have never been unhappy. We have never even thought of staying anywhere else. We love you guys!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are great! All rooms are decorated with a theme. House is full of antiques.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else than Ashley's! You can walk to everything and they have free bikes to ride around to anything a little farther. Great stay! The staff/owners are so nice and helpful. Make sure to try the lobster bisque at the upper deck boardwalk!!

You can NOT find a better place to stay at Put-In-Bay! Bob and Judy are amazing! Kelly is always awesome! We have been going to PIB for many, many years and we always stay and tell our friends to stay at Ashley's. We were late in booking this year and missed out on staying at "home" so we had to try a few other B&B's this season. Let me tell you....they are not even close to Ashley's! The rooms, breakfast and overall experience you will have at other B&B's will NEVER even come close to Ashley's!!! Book now or be left out next year!!! Take it from me, you don't want to miss your chance to have an AWESOME time on the porch and meet new people you will see year in and year out! Love all of you at Ashley's!!!

Exactly what we expected from an updated house dating from 1875. It has "character." Very helpful hosts. Good location just a short walk to the downtown area, but far enough away to avoid the noise. Good selection of breakfast items. This property does not have a pool of its own, but the hosts have worked out pool privileges with several other nearby properties if that is a deciding factor. They have also worked out discounts on bike or golf-cart rentals with a vendor nearby. Easy parking for those who arrive by car. Recommended.

What a fun place to stay!! Judy, Bob and Kelly couldn't be better hosts and the porch is the best hang out place on the island! Thanks for a great weekend! Every year for a weekend in July we take a trip with 5 other couples and this year it was our turn to plan so I picked Put-in-Bay. Lucky for us I found this little gem, Ashley's Island House. We felt welcome as soon as we drove up and everyone went out of their way to make sure we had a great visit. I couldn't believe how close to everything we were and how much there was to offer. Thank you Judy, Bob and Kelly!

Just spent last weekend on Put In Bay and had an awesome time! Accomodations at Ashley's were just perfect - great hosts, beautiful room, nice breakfast, and close to everything. From the time we made our reservations Kelly went above and beyond to make sure our stay would be extra special. If you are goin to PIB, stay at Ashley's -- you'll love it!! Can't wait to go back!!
