Our House


This historic home was built in 1860, right at the time of Abraham Lincoln's presidency and the Civil War. Put-in-Bay was just beginning to be settled at that time, but there were very few year-rounders due to the extreme winters. 



 This is an old photo showing the house in the far distance on the right, while acres of vineyards surround the main road, Langram. This is before the airport was established.

Charlie the Cat


Ok, I know everyone who has a cat says this, but we REALLY mean it. Our cat is amazing. Really. You'll just have to come and see for yourself. 

Christie & Cliff


This is us. Although, you probably won't see Cliff on property very often. He loves to fish and is often out on the Lake. 

Gardens & Chickens.


We truly love sharing them with our guests to enjoy! Backyard chickens also live on the property in the red henhouse.



Summer of 2018 was extra great for Freshwater Retreat due to the hiring of Kaitlyn, our assistant. Thank you Kaitlyn! This summer, 2019, we have Shaena, a local girl whom Christie has known since she was born! We are excited an honored she joined our team.
