This is a great resort for families or if you are just going for a nice relaxing romantic vacation. Our room overlooked Lake Erie, which was just beautiful. The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend and would definitely go back

We spent a few days at the end of September and whilst it was almost empty, we really appreciated the cleanliness and standard of the resort even at this late in the season time. Whilst some of the 'written rules' were a bit OTT, we never felt restricted in enjoying the facilities. The pool area was still really clean and... More

We planned a 3 day get away to Kelly's Island. Our stay at the venture resort was fabulous. It was off season and very laid back. The hotel is 1) Extremely clean and modern. 2) Beds were like clouds to sleep on. 3) Living room in the Marblehead suite was beautiful. Two large windows looking out over the South Bay.... More

Spent Labor Day Weekend in the 6 person suite. We arrived early and were able to store our coolers and luggage in the common room. Our room was clean, beds were comfortable. Plenty of towels! Living room area was spacious. Although, I'd say turn that closet upstairs into a 1/2 bath. 1 toilet for 6 people, doesn't work. Great balcony... More

Spent the weekend in a suite that sleeps 6. Beautiful grounds. Clean suite. Strange choice of lighting. Nothing brighter than a 40 watt refrigerator size bulb. Had to use our phone flashlights to read. When we asked the front desk, no one knew why. The wall lamps did not take a larger bulb. Gave us the lamp from the lobby,... More

Very nice room with an excellent view of the lake. Friendly guests, great pool, on site bikes to use. Very quiet time to go to the island which was actually what we were looking for. Golf carts available to go all around the island. If you go this time of year, maybe a Thursday - Sunday would be better as... More

We enjoyed a Sunday through Tuesday stay on Kelly's Island. We found the island and resort fairly quiet and restful. We enjoyed the pool/hot tub area, landscaping, a large clean room with an amazing view of Lake Erie, and probably most of all the comfy Adirondack chairs right next to Lake Erie. My only complaint, and I hesitate to label... More

This hotel was a fantastic find and we will definitely be back. The view was amazing and the hotel itself was clean and very well taken care of. Each morning, the staff would be out cleaning and making sure that the hotel was ready for the guests when they woke up. The grounds were beautiful and well manicured. The pool... More

Our family of 4 have been going to this island for years. This is the 1st time we all stayed at the resort during the summer. It was fantastic.
