Our Guest Reviews

We had a blast! We had a big crew of 15 guys. The house was perfect for us. There were plenty of places to sleep, and it was right around the corner from where we wanted to be. The large front deck was cool to sit and check out people! It was within walking distance of everything. The owners were very friendly to us and very personable.

I highly recommend it if you want to be in the island’s action. It was nice not to have to take taxis in and out of town the entire weekend. We rented a golf cart from the owners and it was the best way to see the island. We will return!

We had a girls’ weekend getaway in September. This rental house was the best room have ever stayed at in Put In Bay. There was so much space in the main bedroom and the living room area.

The beds were very comfortable. The flooring was excellent. It even had a full kitchen we used to cook a few meals and save some money. Honestly, this place is the best!! Very pleasantly surprised.

Leslie Long

I am in the hospitality industry, so my expectations were high, and they were met. Above impressed with the service. Bedrooms were spotless, beds were comfy, and the location was quiet at night. The monument and most attractions were waiting outside your door. The All Star Ohio House allows you to be downtown without having to deal with the loudness of the bars.

We could not have requested a better location or better family getaway. Having a 2-year-old, we learned ahead of time to go to Put-in-Bay Sunday thru Thursday. Everything was so convenient. Highly recommend this place!

Lisa Medford

Our stay at the All Star Ohio House was fantastic! Modern, clean, and updated rooms. This rental home by far has the best location on the island!

Steps from downtown bars & restaurants and Perry’s Monument. The view is fantastic! I recommend this for families, couples, and groups! I can’t wait to go back.
