The Victory Station Hotel is a brand new addition to the landscape of Put-in-Bay. Construction finished in 2013 and since then, visitors have been flocking to this hotel. The name plays homage to the Victory Hotel, the island’s most iconic lodging house.
The Comforts of Victory Station Hotel
Full of old-world Victorian charm, the Victory Station Hotel has several different options for the room, each decorated with the utmost care. Select from single, double, and patio rooms. The patio rooms come with a private and queen bed. The building itself is a handsome brick building with an outdoor wooden staircase. Golf cart rentals are also available.
These appealing rooms come equipped with modern conveniences such as flat-screen TV’s, luxurious bathrooms, and exterior vanities. Located minutes from downtown Put-in-Bay, Victory Station is close to the action while feeling peacefully secluded. Situated on a wide expanse of green, this lovely lodge is for adults only.
Victory Station is within walking distance of some of the most happening spots on the island. Mr. Ed’s Bar & Grille and MIST are right down the street. MIST is located in the Commodore Resort but open to the public. A swim-up bar with private cabanas and DJ’s spinning into the night makes this spot the place to be in the hotter months.
This list is only a brief overview of the fun things to do on Put-in-Bay. Fishermen and boaters love spending the summer on the shores of Lake Erie, catching perch and walleye from the glistening waters.
Victory Station’s Namesake
The island is also steeped in history. An important location during the War of 1812, Commodore Perry fought the British during the Battle of Lake from the shores of the island. After the war, Put-in-Bay became a go-to spot for affluent vacationers. The Hotel Victory opened in 1892 to great fanfare. This massive hotel consisted of 625 rooms decked out with the most opulent furniture and fixtures.
Sadly this incredible hotel was not economically viable and closed after a devastating fire closed in 1919. Visitors to the island can take a peek at the ruins of the gigantic swimming pool to this day.
