Nature & Recreation I: Freshwater Retreat (Put-in-Bay)

A New Oasis of Relaxation, Renewal, and Rejuvenation on Put-in-Bay


  • FreshwaterResort

Being a very frequent visitor to one of our popular places of interest, the island of South Bass in the Western Basin of Lake Erie, I love new venues! This beautiful gem on the Southeastern corner of the island right across the street from the Put-in-Bay airport is becoming a big attraction.


“Indulge in the wonderfulness of connecting with nature, allow the healing waters of Lake Erie to work its magic---it has worked for me and my family for six generations,” states Christie Ontko.  Come to the “Bay” and stay in this historic home and be pampered beyond your understanding.  Complimentary bikes are available, golf carts can be rented on site, and just enjoy the highlights of South Bass Island. I can attest that staying at a bed and breakfast here in the Western Basin of Lake Erie is one of the most refreshing and enjoyable things you can give yourself and loved ones.

See the island as the natives see it!  Read an entire book uninterrupted! Ignite a fresh spark in your young spirit! This place is designed to calm your life by nurturing your body, mind, and soul. Leave all your worries at home and toiletries. Their all natural products are in their kitchen as well!  With a “life coach” to guide you through some exhilarating awareness DVDs, you can get renewed and rested all at the same time! Maybe even try some yoga or expand your meditation experiences!


There are some things in my life that I just know will be great!  Being a very empathetic educator at Put-in-Bay school, I know Christie will give each visitor a “new experience” at her Freshwater Retreat.  Be sure you call 419-366-1036 or check out their web site, www.freshwatersensations.com.  You might not be able to get out of their incredible hot tub to enjoy their country gardens or choose your own eggs from the  resident chickens to be fixed just the way you like them. Now that is living the dream!!
