My wife and I took our 8 yr son for an overnight stay very recently and being Inn the off season found a great rate at Ashleys Island House. We booked the carriage house which is an upper level apartment. The accommodations were very comfortable, clean and accessible. The owner/manager is a very professional, friendly and cheerful person who likes to spend time chatting with guests and sharing a sundowner. He is was very attentive and gave us a business card with his cell number so that we could reach him for any needs.
The B&B hosts a small kitchen with communal tableware and from which a light breakfast fare is served. Bicycles and golf carts are also available for rental.
The more personalized story to our stay is that I forgot my laptop in our room and hadn't realized it until we had already reached the mainland on the ferry. I called Dave with the idea that I could pay him to send it maybe UPS or hold it until I could get back out there but he DROVE IT TO THE FERRY minutes after the call and sent it over!! I was very impressed and lucky. Thanks Dave!
Stay at Ashleys Island House!!

We had a great time staying at this bed and breakfast June 4-6 2021. Dave was super friendly and attentive. You can tell that he takes pride in the place. The house was very clean and had everything we needed for our 2 night stay in PIB. Each room has its own bathroom which was a must. The location is great too. We could walk to the brewery etc. We also rented a golf cart from Dave (best prices on the island). I would highly recommend this place for any couple staying a few nights, and I definitely will book again next time.

Just returned from a two night stay at Ashley’s Island House and it was a wonderful experience! Owner was there when we arrived and, since it was our first visit to the island, he gave us an island tour on one of their golf carts. Our stay just continued to be top notch during our entire visit. They had a cancellation and since that room was larger than our booked room they offered us that room - which I thought was a very nice gesture. Also really enjoyed making new friends with all the guests on the porch.

Other notes: Renting golf carts from Ashley’s is the way to go. It is an easy walk from the Jet Express ferry and since it was raining when we departed, they even gave us a ride back to the port! We aren’t huge party people so we were happy that we weren’t on the island on a weekend. Arriving Sunday afternoon was perfect and enjoyed laid back atmosphere of the island on the weekdays.



Island life does not get any better then when you stay at Ashley's Island House. The rooms are clean, well maintained. The breakfasts in the morning is awesome. The location is outstanding with in walking distance to the bars and restaurants. In the evening or late afternoon you can sit on the front porch and relax or you can go bike riding, bikes are included with the rental of the rooms. In one word FUN! I have been coming to Ashley's for 10+ years.

Last Minute pre-deployment getaway
This was by far the best choice we could have made when we decided to stay on the island. Hospitality, price, accommodations, and the whole experience was perfect. Great company at night on the front porch with the owners and nothing but even better things to come from this B&B
We will not be staying anywhere else on the island

GREAT place to stay
First off, I just have to start off with saying that Lori, the owner's mother is fantastic. After an overnight stay and riding our bikes 2 miles to the dock and riding the ferry back to mainland from the island, my wife and I discovered to our horror that my car keys weren't in my backpack. I called Ashley's and asked Lori to check our room. Sure enough, she told me they were there. As I envisioned taking a solo journey back across the water, riding my bike back to the inn to get them, she didn't hesitate to suggest that she would take them down to the dock in her golf cart and have the next boat bring them to me. I was so grateful... Instead of what promised to be a several hour ordeal wound up being resolved within 40 minutes of me calling her.
That was the capstone on an otherwise great stay at Ashley's for our birthdays, which was already a repeat visit. We stayed here last summer for two days in midweek (much more sane--yet still fun--than weekends at PIB), and loved this place. We learned that the inn had changed owners since last year. Yet it still has the same comfort, cleanliness and charm as before. Lori's son was injured shortly before we arrived so she was managing the place solo as he was getting himself fixed up, yet she still did a great job. Best of luck with everything!

Been to Put-in-Bay many years and never had a better opportunity for a place to Lodge as we did this year when we stayed at Ashley's Island House B&B. The hospitality was OUTSTANDING!!!! never been so welcomed anywhere else. We rode there on our motorcycles. The next day our battery died so we had to make it back to the main island in order to get a new battery so we could get it started to make it off of Put-in-Bay. Dave the owner of Ashley's didn't bat an eye when he handed us the keys to his convertable Porsche, Way to go Dave we will forever be in your debt and we will forever be grateful. We will definitely recommend your hospitality and your beautiful home to many others. Many many thanks the Couchmans
