This little gem was a great find. There is a motel which we didn't stay in but my family and I rented 2 cottages. They were very old fashioned but suited our purposes just great. And you can not beat the price for being steps from the lake in Marblehead, OH. Myra, the owner is a real treat, she truly treats you like family. The pool was wonderful and clean, the kids really enjoyed it, they cried when it was time to go home. There is also a small beach which housed many snakes so I don't know about swimming but the fishing off the long dock was great. This isn't a fancy schmancy place but the hospitality is second to none and if you're not high maintenance you'll feel right at home. The kids also enjoyed the small playgroud and sandbox.

I have stayed at the cabin twice this summer with my family. My second visit I also invited my sister and her family to rent a cabin so we had a total of 2 cabins. The new owners were friendly, polite and provided immediate assistance when we had questions. WE didn't need any help with regards to the cabins because they were excellent overall. They were very clean, comfortable and my kids slept very soundly! The kitchen was equip with all we needed to grill and make our breakfasts. Each cabin also had its own grill. The also provided movies to watch for the kids on the dvd player for late night. The place was also very festive with boaters stopping in to visit the cute and clean beachfront. WE night fished off of the dock and even caught a few catfish! The pool was clean and very deep so we had a great time lounging poolside. In the end, if you are looking for a great time in Marblehead look no further! I highly recommend.

Taylor's is a semi-rustic vacation spot that allows you to truly enjoy the outside without giving up modern amenities. There are 8 cottages, each with 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom, a screened porch, tv, and air conditioning. There is also a small motel with 5 rooms. There are docks for boats and fishing, a pool, a game room, fire pits, a swing set, and outdoor games such as badminton, volleyball, and horseshoes.
Myra, the owner and host, is super kind and very accommodating. We had a 50th wedding anniversary party there, with family coming from all over the US. Myra was patient and helped us with booking, including all of the changes that went with our crazy family!

This “motel” used to be called Taylor’s Resort and a great family operated this property. The property was bought in late 2016 by a new family because the original owners passed away, and it is now called Easy Wind Inn. Unfortunately, the new owners do not care about their customers and have a very poor attitude.

I visited Taylor’s Resort/Easy Wind Inn for the past 8 years when traveling for my annual vacation to Johnson’s Island. For the last 7 years, I have had zero problems. Unfortunately, this year (2017) was a miserable experience.

The daily “motel” rate increased from $85 to $100 a night. I was fine with this since the location is so convenient to Johnson’s Island. There is no check in/out desk so the week before I arrived, I asked what the wifi password is. The owner Amy sent a rude email saying that their guests prefer to be outside and creating memories with other people. For my entire stay, I was unable to establish a stable connection to the wifi and had to use my cell phone for the internet.

The TV’s are the old CRT tube TV’s from most likely around 1995 and are mounted at an unsafe level if you are tall. She said that they don’t plan on upgrading the electronics anytime soon even though she kept touting that they are environmentally friendly. I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to get rid of an energy robbing device… but I digress.

I noticed on my 2nd day of my stay that my room was not serviced (bed not made, and no fresh towels). I e-mailed the owner again (since there is no check in/out desk) and she stated that they do not provide daily service. She said that they prefer guests re-use towels because they want to be friendly to the environment. I have never heard of a hotel/motel not providing daily service to your room. All I wanted was my bed made and fresh towels. The owner sent another rude email saying that in the future I should stay at other motels as they are more upscale.

The room had spiders and spider webs in the bathroom window. The door to the room I was staying in latched shut, but didn’t completely close. The owners stipulate that if you leave your heating/air conditioning on during the day and never return to your room during the day, they can charge your credit card. I prefer to leave the AC on during the summer so that after a long hot day, I can return to a cool room.

If you prefer a 5 unit “motel” with no stable wifi, no daily service, rude management, and don’t mind paying $100 a night for the privilege of sleeping in their room, then this is the place for you. I have never been to a property where daily room service was not provided. I will never stay at this “motel” again because the owners are rude and claim to be environmentally friendly to excuse doing any work to generate maximum profit.

We used to stay here all the time when we went to Marblehead. As you can see from an earlier review of mine, you could stay overnight and the price was low. Again, this is not the Ritz, but it was always clean and Myra, the owner was terrific. Now you have a mandatory two night stay, and the price increased by a third - with no improvements for your expanding dollar. If we wanted to stay only one night, the nightly price increased by 50%. Forget this place. The Lake Point is around the corner, and unless you really need the pool, stay there. The Surf is also a good option. These people should go to a hospitality school before they lose their business.

Loved staying at this resort. It has everything. A Swimming Pool fenced in, a small motel, laundry room, Rental cabins, and a private boat ramp and dock. I believe they also had a game room. Awesome place for anyone. The owner Myra lives on site. Close to the Marblehead Lighthouse, Ferry, restaurants, shops, and The historic Johnsons Island. Linens provided. Microwaves, coffee pot, bed, couch, table, Ac. Love this place, have stayed here 3 times. Would love to visit again. Great rates.

I have stayed all over the Marblehead area and this is a kitschy, clean place. It has a cute, funky kitchen, 2 bedrooms and an exceptionally small bathroom. However, it has a great screened in porch, a personal grill and picnic table, and a fabulous view of the bay. If you have more than one family and are staying for a weekend or longer, I highly recommend renting a couple of these cabins and having a ball. Go grocery shopping so you can take advantage of the microwave, fridge, coffeemaker and stove - and the grill, of course. There is a pool, a playground, a fire pit, and a boat ramp. Go sit and reflect on the benches by the water. It was much cleaner than I anticipated. The only downside was the microscopically small shower and the water pressure. But it got the job done. It is easy access to all the fun things there are to be in the area. Go have fun!
And....I thought the owner was a sweetie.

Stayed in one of the cute/rustic cabins. Kids loved swimming in the pool and fishing off the pier! No Wifi, but it was nice to unplug and relax by the campfire. New owners were nice and friendly. will visit again soon.

Yeah, ok, if you are looking for luxury, you are at the wrong place. But, if you want a clean, accomodating and friendly place to sleep, you can't beat Taylors. This complex has a 5 room motel and several cabins that lead on down to Lake Erie with water access. Myra is terrific and will try to tend to your every need. Taylors is centrally located to downtown Marblehead, Catawba Island, the ferry to Put n Bay, African Lion Safari, Cedar Point, Port Clinton, etc. There is also a very clean pool, and the price is unbelievable.

I am always on the lookout for a friendly, clean, and safe place to rest my head after a long day fishing and I found it at Taylor's. Great people, easy access boat ramp, can pull boat right next to cottage to charge batteries and work on tackle. Perfect place for any fisherman to stay at a great rate with fantastic lake access and personable staff!
