The place to go for rest and relaxation
Middle Bass Island is the calm away from the storm, where Put-in-Bay visitors retreat for a little rest and relaxation. Travel to Middle Bass via Miller Ferry from their Catawba dock. It is a short 45 minute ride with beautiful views of the lake and surrounding islands on your trip. It is best to bring your vehicle to our island as there is no public transportation. You must call Miller Ferry (800-500-2421) 2 weeks before your scheduled arrival date to reserve your spot to and from the island. The ferry fills up fast! Information can be found in the link below.
If you are boating over to our island, check out the link below to reserve a dock at our gorgeous Middle Bass State Park Marina. All your questions can be answered with the link below. The State of Ohio purchased the infamous Lonz Winery and is now part of our State Park. Visit the winery and see historical wine cellar with original equipment and huge wine barrels. The Park includes a pavilion and stone fireplace that is available for rental. The winery also boasts an outdoor stone deck for rent. A perfect spot for an island wedding, class reunion or family gathering.
Beginning at the end of May, the Sonny-S Ferry begins their scheduled trips to Put in Bay. You can also pick up the Jet Express at Put in Bay and visit another island gem, Kelley’s Island. Kelley’s Island is home to largest glazier grooves in the country at their State Park. The island State Park also has one of the few sand beaches located around Lake Erie. Ferry Schedules for the Jet Express island hopping, the Sonny-S, Middle Bass Miller Ferry and Put in Bay Miller Ferry are provided in the condo. This trip is dependent on ferry schedules, so you must plan your trip accordingly!
