The Five Bells Inn Bed and Breakfast Port Clinton Rentals

The Five Bells Inn offers the best Port Clinton rentals for couples and families. Choose from their romantic bed and breakfast suites or the family cottage. Five Bells Inn offers a retreat right on the shores of Lake Erie in Catawba Island.  My family was able to retreat to the family cottage after a day at Cedar Point last week. We received lodging in exchange for this review. The hosts, Eileen and Jerry Jarc have been offering a place for people to retreat to on Catawba Island for more than 15 years and their passion is stronger than ever.

Five Bells Inn offers breathtaking scenery of Lake Erie and a beautiful lagoon.  The 2-1/2 acres of land is well-groomed, offering the perfect setting to stroll and take in the beauty. Located on the west side Catawba Island Peninsula, it is the perfect spot to enjoy beautiful sunsets.  We enjoyed sitting by Lake Erie, enjoying the sights and sounds.

Port Clinton Rentals Five Bells Inn Family Cottage

My family of 4 enjoyed retreating to the Five Bells Inn Family Cottage after a day at Cedar Point last week. It was just about 20 minutes from Cedar Point and a very welcomed retreat after a long day of fun at the amusement park. I can’t tell you how nice it was to drive a short distance and relax instead of traveling all the way back home.

This family cottage rental offers lodging for 8 people. It has 2 bedrooms – 1 with a queen size bed and the 2nd with 2 single beds.  Upon the entrance of the cottage, there is a set of bunk beds as well as a sleeper coach for additional sleepers. All linens are provided, so no need to pack anything. It was more than enough for our family of 4 and would be so much fun with another family.

We enjoyed the extra living space the family cottage gave us compared to a hotel.  My kids loved hanging out in the living room, watch TV and playing games that were in the cottage.

There is a small table and a bar area for dining inside and also a deck outside with a table. The family cottage rate is $200 per night.
