Ashley's Island House Reviews

Guest Testimonials

See what our past guests are saying about Ashley’s Island House and what keeps them coming back year after year!

“The Ashley House is a charming excursion into hospitality and exemplary service. The proprietor Dave exemplified great dedication to his establishment and his guests. The rooms are clean and cozy.
Each room has a theme we stayed in the Sunflower room. The front porch is welcoming and you are likely to make friends there before the night is over. It is nicely situated close to the best places to eat on the island.
Dave takes the time to orient his guests to the Island and demonstrates an encyclopedic knowledge of the area.
We plan on returning. I highly recommend this establishment.”

“Did not stay at Ashley’s (we camped) but rented a cart at the cheapest rate in the island. We saved $60. But they only rent carts when guests don’t need them. Owners/staff were fantastic, personable and helpful. Talked to a couple of people staying at Ashley’s and they said it was great. By all means if they have carts to rent-rent here. This would be our first choice for a place to stay on the island.”

“Our first visit to Put-in-Bay. We couldn’t get a room at our first choice, which turned out to be good luck because we had such a great stay at Ashley’s. Very short walking distance to the heart of the village, but far enough to be away from the nightlife noise. Our room was quiet, well appointed, comfortable and very clean. Laurie, the proprietor, is very friendly and helpful, she made us feel like we were visiting a dear friend.

The hot breakfast was tasty, and the front porch offers a relaxing perch for watching island life pass by. I actually preferred being on Catawba Ave. versus a quiet side street, it was fun to see all the happy people going by in their golf carts.”

“If you are looking for a place to stay in Put-in-Bay look no further than Ashley’s Island House! The inn keeper is very nice and accommodating. The house is lovely and clean! The towels are the softest ones I’ve ever used. (A small but important detail) The house is located within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. Bikes are free to use and you can rent golf carts there as well. The front porch is a great way to wind down after a day of shopping, eating and sightseeing. I would give this place 10 stars if I could!”

If you’re looking for a clean, comfortable, relaxing and a great environment STAY at Ashley’s Island House!!! This was our first time visiting Put-In-Bay, and Dave (host) made sure to make us feel welcomed. Each room has a theme, we were in the Bird Room. Room was exceptionally CLEAN, bathroom and shower CLEAN, drawers to put our clothes in, everything to make you feel comfortable.

Let’s talk about the bed…majority of the time I don’t sleep on the first night in a new place, not here, I was out like a light on my first night!!!! Breakfast was a huge spread, toast, eggs, sausage, hash browns, OJ and so much more. My favorite place was and is the front porch! It’s super cozy and Dave has ceiling fans with lights for night-time sitting. We also rented a golf cart which he took the time to show a newbie how to use it. We enjoyed our time so much at Ashley’s Island House that we booked a room for a September getaway already!
Special thanks to Dave for being a great host, you can really tell you enjoy what you do for people! See you in September!!
