Our first visit to this B&B, recommended by our friends. We will definitely be back. The room was comfortable, (we were in the Birding Room) and the shower was exceptional! The back deck view of the lake was lovely and even with the light rain, they have a motorized canopy that comes out over the deck! WOW! The breakfast was tasty and loved the muffins!! The owners, Bart and Sandy, are fantastic and very hospitable and personable, like being with good friends. They are there to attend to your needs, but not intrusive and there is a lot of space and time for yourself. Sandy was very informative on places to eat for dinner in the area and the ones that will give you a 10% off because you stayed at her B&B. Catawba Island, Kelley's Island, Put-in-Bay and Marblehead are in close proximity, you can't go wrong staying at Our Sunset Place. Can't wait for our next visit!

Wife and I needed a couple days to decompress from jobs and everyday ho hum. We're fond of Lake Erie and though it was late September, early October we lucked out finding a gem of a B&B. Stayed a couple weekdays and this time of year had the whole house to ourselves! Even with other guests, there's plenty of space indoors and out to relax.

Our room was sizable with a private bathroom/shower. Shower had wonderful water pressure and extra sprayers that provided all over body happiness. Bed was comfortable and the lake view and slapping surf made our stay just what coming to the Lake Erie shore was all about.

In the house, there's a good bar to sit at and a TV and a fireplace. We did not use the fireplace, but it would be a nice touch if hanging out all weekend in the fall or spring with friends sharing drinks and good times. At the bar also were quality binoculars and a spotting scope for gazing at anything of interest on or across the lake.

Sandy made two wonderful breakfasts exceeding expectations in taste and presentation. Portions were just right and we served right on time.

We used the awesome hot tub which seats eight to ten people if you stay with friends and family. There's a nice deck as well to sit on anytime of the day and watch the lake, boats and birds. There's a seating area at ground level in the yard as well.

One of the highlights was seeing the bald eagles that nest nearby. We saw them in flight and though brief, still inspiring to see our national bird.

Driving to town or to any of the restaurants was a breeze. Our sunset place is ideally located to fun things to do and again sits right on the water for all the sights and sounds that offers.

Bart and Sandy our world travelers and good conversationalists if you care to engage or they'll leave you alone if you prefer. We shared stories, photos and interests which just added to the overall good experience.

Parking: You can park in the off street cemented area in front of the house.

We look forward to staying again and recommend it to anybody who's a B&B type looking for a decent get away.

Jeff and Jennifer Mullins

With so much going on in our lives, the wife and I needed to get away for the weekend. Our Sunset Place was perfect, especially with its location right on the lake and beautiful views of fantastic sunsets. Bart and Sandy went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and that we were comfortable. Their attention to COVID practices was reassuring. With the house only several years old, all the amenities were first class. Gourmet breakfasts filled us up to the point we didn't even think about lunch. The location is perfect for those wanting to explore the Islands and all Lake Erie has to offer.

Just returned from a four-night stay in the Birding Room at Our Sunset Place and feel that it is now our sunset place as well! Our room was extremely comfortable, with a great view from the balcony. We looked forward to the ample breakfast each morning, thoughtfully prepared with attention to dietary restrictions. Sandy and Bart sat with us to explain everything from the operation of the Jacuzzi to where to find things in the kitchen to restaurants and attractions in the area. Masks were required in common areas and there was an air filter in our room; we felt safe. We’ve already booked for next year!

As always never disappointed in Our Sunset Place. The location is perfect right on the water and access to wineries restaurants and close to any Ferry going to Put in Bay and Kelly’s Island which we did on this trip. We’ve stayed in every room at this point and each one is amazing! The hosts make you feel at home and couldn’t be any better! Me and my wife will definitely continue to return!

It was my boyfriend and I’s first time staying at a B&B so we had no idea what to expect. Sandy and Bart were some of the most personable, hospitable hosts ever. They made us feel right at home and were very knowledgeable about where to go for the best beaches, food, and tourism. The property was immaculate and very clean. The temperpedic mattress in our guest room was like sleeping on a cloud. The breakfast was wonderful and Sandy was really great at accommodating our unique tastes. The hot tub/swim spa was very clean and very spacious. It made for a relaxing evening under the stars. The complementary wine for staying 2 nights was a plus as well- very tasty! We definitely plan on returning again in the near future and will recommend this destination to all of our friends. Thanks Sandy and Bart! - Lauren and Jesse

We've lost count on how many weekends we've spent at Our Sunset Place. Every year is so enjoyable...from the wonderful bedroom and bath to the deck firepit to the fabulous breakfasts and the amazing sunsets! This year we were treated to Mint Juleps in honor of The Kentucky Derby race, which we all watched together on their deck overlooking Lake Erie. It doesn't get any better than this! See you next year1

My wife and I stayed at Our Sunset Place for our honeymoon and had a fantastic experience. The B&B is located right on the water in a perfect location, close to many local attractions. It is a beautiful and cozy place to stay. Sandy is a fantastic host who makes her guest feel like family and cooks a delicious and very filling breakfast each morning. When we booked, we thought this would be a one-time experience, but we would love to come back in the future as our trip and stay with Sandy was incredible!

Everything about Our Sunset Place was terrific. The breakfasts were the best we’ve ever had at any B & B. Our room with its patio overlooking Lake Erie was the perfect place to sit and read and listen to the rhythm of the waves. And what a delight it was to slit at the bar in the Great Room sipping the wine they provided for us while watching the sun set.

We have been staying at B & B’s for the last four decades, and can honestly say this ranks number one—can’t wait to go back.
