We have quiet areas available for those who would like to get away for a cup of coffee and good book, plus our huge Grand Parlor is the perfect place for larger gatherings around a roaring fire. The entire house has air-conditioning and total of three televisions. Whole-house rentals have use of two well-equipped kitchens.

Our grounds are quite spacious as well. With nearly 2 acres of gardens, horse shoe courts, bon-fire pit, patio, and stage area. There is plenty of room for a lawn games. In addition, we have 17 acres of hiking trails with an amazing number of bird species who call our woods home, inlcuding a pair of bald eagles!

Area Information
Catawba Island is literally the "Gateway to Ohio's Playground". We are the stepping off point to Lake Erie's Islands. We are less than 1/2 mile from Miller's Ferry to the famous Put-In-Bay Island (South Bass Island). This Island is a playground for family members of all ages.

Port Clinton & Marblehead are both with-in a 10-15minute drive, and Jet Express offers ferries to Kelly's Island from these convenient ports. Cedar Point (the world's largest Roller Coaster Theme Park), Kalahari Resort (indoor water park), and many, many other fantastic attractions are all within 25-30minutes of our door.

If you are a bird watcher or wild-life enthusiast, we have many preserves and aviars within a very short distance! The fishing in our area can not be beat! We are famous for our Walleye Festival and for the mouth-watering perch that are pulled from our waters!

The Lake Erie Shores and Islands area has so much to offer, especially during the warm weather months.

Sunny Sde B&B

B&B was very nice. Caretakers were very helpful however, I was surprised the B&B had different rules than I am accustomed to with rentals. We had to strip the beds, empty trash, clean and mop the kitchen (which we used) and take the recycles to a redemption point, among other things. In others rentals from Vacation Home rentals, we did none of the above. We packed and left. Not a fun way to leave a vacation.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Awesome stay! We love this B&B. This is our second stay here and we will definitely be back. We always thoroughly enjoy our time here.

Very welcoming and home like atmosphere. Will definatly be coming back.

We visited Sunnyside in October 2009 with another couple and had a wonderful weekend.manager'swere such gracious, easy-going, knowledgable, accomodating hosts and did not mind one bit when we basically took over their home. The rooms are gorgeous and comfortable, and breakfast was superb every morning. We cannot wait to go back someday soon!

Our stay at Sunnyside was fabulous! The history of the home is captivating and the world wide treasures that fill the house are fascinating. I could have spent every second of my stay just in the house investigating every nook and cranny of what it has to offer. Each room, each wall decoration, every single thing has a story attached to it. The new owners are the best! Paying particular attention to the needs of their guests they went above and beyond to make our stay more than we expected. Our breakfast was delicious and we were even entertained by a little guitar music courtesy of another guest in the house. Our children loved our stay at Sunnyside just as much as we did. We'll definitely be back!!
