Location Instructions

Welcome to Put-in-Bay, Ohio, a favorite vacation spot in Lake Erie.  Put-in-Bay is located on South Bass Island (the largest of the bass islands) off the northwest shore of Ohio.  It is approximately 65 miles from Cleveland and about 50 miles from Toledo.  South Bass Island is small, only 3.5 miles by 1.5 miles, and is 570 feet above sea level.  The climate provides an ideal environment to support a large wine industry.  The unique limestone coastline adds to the rugged beauty of the island, and is perfect for fishing, boating, or swimming.  The island is also popular for birding, with hundreds of migratory birds to see.

Put-In-Bay offers a refreshing escape from the treadmill pace of life.  It is reachable only by water or air.  For transportation to and from the island, visit the Miller Ferry web site at  www.millerferry.com or the Jet Express web site at  www.jet-express.com .

Bird’s Nest Resort is located on1371 Langram Road about 1 mile from the downtown area. We are across from the Put-in-Bay Airport.
