Our Guests are like family! Thank you for your kind words!

We needed a place close to Miller Ferry line so we could get over to Put In Bay and not too far from Cedar Point. Our room was clean. Walked around the grounds (we stayed in the hotel part but there are cottages around the property too). The pools were clean. The kids played on the playground and pirate ship. Gorgeous view on the lake. They had a bonfire at night and a few of us resort guests sat around chatting until midnight.

This place was a great place. Very comfortable beds, clean room with a lot of space. Very friendly staff, complimentary wine &cheese and crackers as well as a complimentary breakfast in the morning. I would give them 10 stars!

If you want a little slice of heaven, this is the place you need to go! Perfect for a family weekend getaway or a week vacation! The hotel rooms are very clean and well kept, the cottages are super cozy and the lake access is amazing! 2 pools, a kids swimming area, and a nice hot tub by the lake is a neat feature. We absolutely will be staying here every time we come to Sandusky from now on.

Our trip to South Beach Resort was so relaxing. The rooms were immaculate. The staff were very nice and assisted us with local area activities. We enjoyed the pools, the whirlpool and the jacuzzi in our room. I look forward to visiting again! Carla Bohannon

Flew out over the lake for this one. Thought it cool to get 2 places I love in the same shot!

Check out this great view of the Marblehead Lighthouse. And if you look way in the back, you can see Cedar Point! Have a great weekend.
