Northwest Ohio getaway with toddler

We're thinking about a short getaway the first week of June somewhere in NW Ohio and are looking for ideas on where to go. I am picturing 2-3 nights at a cabin or cottage where we can spend the mornings outside enjoying nature (or a playground for our 2 year old), nap in the afternoons and spend the evenings in a cute little town.

Is there any where like that where we might still be able to get a reservation this late?

Hmmmm, are you willing to go elsewhere in Ohio?

Look at Maumee Bay State Park Resort. They do have cottages.

You also might consider Kelleys Island, and other state parks.

Here is a listing of Ohio's small town gems.

Lakeside may be another possibility, except that only weekly rentals are available in season.

You also might look for cottages in Vermilion, Ohio, one of the more charming communities on Lake Erie. Here's one example there.

Thanks so much. I was able to book a cottage at Maumee Bay. I am so excited! It sounds like the perfect place to just relax for a couple of days and spend some time as a family after a particularly stressful season of life. It will also be our first trip with the little one and it looks like he will have a blast without being too overwhelmed.
