An Island Experience

The Campbell Cottage is our private home which we happily share with our special guests. A full breakfast is served on the spacious front porch, weather permitting, or in front of the crackling fire on chilly days.

Bicycles, single-speed coater-brake style, are provided for guests to explore the wooded back roads and travel to "downtown" and the beach.

The spacious front porch is delightful for a quiet afternoon reading a good book, or just rocking and watching the gentle motion of the waves.

Sunsets are our specialty, because Lake Erie sunsets are so beautiful and best seen from our front porch or yard.

Coffee, iced tea or lemonade, and homemade cookies are available all day. A special "guest refrigerator" is stocked with beverages and juices and will keep your own beverages and snacks chilled.

Only a few years old, Campbell Cottage has all the modern conveniences plus "old fashioned" amenities.

Hand-made quilts, antiques and personal family collectibles define the decor. The relaxing ambiance invites you to unwind and get into "island mode."

Three guest rooms provide privacy, comfort and quiet. All mattresses are of the highest quality. All rooms are double occupancy. Campbell Cottage is not suitable for very young children. We welcome well-behaved children over 10 years old.

My Island Wish

I long for Kelleys Island mornings,
For the glory of sunlit days
For the soft caress of the gentle breeze
And the lapping of the waves

I'd like to see the rising sun,
Its rays of red and gold,
I'd like to swim on a hot afternoon
And remember while I grow old.

I'd love to sit on the big front porch
And rock or take a nap.
I'd ride a bike down to the beach,
And then I'd ride it back.

I want to gaze at the big blue lake
And sit in the evening glow,
When the sun has dropped in the western sky
And the stars begin to show.

For I've loved my stays on Kelleys Isle
Through days of sun and rain,
And I find that all her lovely charms
Are calling me back again!
