About Us

Ashley's Island House has a special place in Put-in-Bay history.

Nostalgic Photo As one enters the drive at Ashley's Island House, our Put-in-Bay Island, OH accommodations, one travels over the same road that was used by prominent citizen and builder George Gascoyne. He built the house as a single family dwelling in 1863. It was converted to a boarding house in the late 1800's for officers from ships that were in port. George Gascoyne also designed and built The Village Hall as well as some of the island's most stylish buildings.

Ashley's Island House is within steps of the heart of Put-in-Bay, Ohio's fine shops, restaurants, entertainment, Catholic and Episcopal Churches and other historical buildings. Enjoy a leisurely walk around the island and explore its interesting history. Take a bike ride along the countryside and tour our local winery. Climb to the top of Commodore Perry's International Peace Memorial or visit his famous cave. Enjoy fishing; this is the Walleye capital of the world. Stroll along the lake, go swimming, boating, or rent a golf cart to travel around this fascinating island.

This place was AMAZING! My friends and I traveled for Labor Day weekend and had a blast! As a retired Hotel GM I can tell you this place was VERY clean and decorated lovely. The owners take such pride in caring for their guests. The breakfast was lovely with a nice variety to choose from. The house is adorned with a lovely front porch that is the best evening attraction after everything shuts down. The owners even come out to visit and enjoy in the fun! This place is right around the corner from everything and rents golf carts for only $50 cash! I can’t wait to go back next year! The passion they have for their guests will bring me back to them again next year! This place is a GEM !

Thanks for everything! You went above and beyond to help us celebrate my 40th birthday the right way. We all had a blast and are taking home some wonderful memories. Kim, Bryce,Kim and Justin

Alright, this was the first trip to put-in-bay for my wife and I. Been in Ohio since 2003. We chose to stay at Ashley's island house because a former co-worker, Dave Schafer bought the place. This is a warm charming and very comfortable B&B just steps from downtown. We were not sure what to expect from Put-in-bay, but Dave and his mom will show you the ropes if your new and give you pointers if your an old hat to the island. The beds were comfortable and the atmosphere extremely welcoming. Breakfast was great with scrambled eggs and sausage. I highly recommend considering a stay with Dave and his Mom. They have bikes and carts if you really need them and a lot to do at the house.

This place is simply amazing. Overly accommodating and such a great location
The owners are such wonderful people and I can tell they really want to create an atmosphere where they know their guests and want to create lasting memories
We will not be staying anywhere else on the island

Wonderful B&B and within walking distance to the main attractions in downtown PIB . Bob and Judy left it in good hands with the new owners . Thanks Dave and Laurie for taking good care of Ashleys . See you next year at Pyrate fest 2021.
