Where To Find Bay View Gifts
Just outside of downtown Put-in-Bay, on the beautiful Lake Erie banks, you’ll find the Miller Marina, the Put-in-Bay Yacht Club, and Bay View Gifts.
Speaking of the Put-in-Bay Yacht Club, they offer dockage and a clubhouse that can be rented for a birthday party, family reunion, wedding, or other events. Check it out if you want to have a large gathering at Put-in-Bay!
This area has so much history. Gibraltar Island is also just across the way from Bay View gifts. Gibraltar Island was a lookout spot for Commodore Perry’s forces in the Battle of Lake Erie. The home known as Cooke’s Castle on Gibraltar Island is a National Historic Landmark. If you’d like to see Gibraltar Island, there is a water taxi to get across from Put-in-Bay!
So there’s no shortage of things to do in the area once you’re done at Bay View gifts. In fact, we haven’t even scratched the surface! You’ll be right next to the Put-in-Bay Winery. Stop in for a glass of wine (or two) and enjoy the beautiful Doller Estate. This Victorian-era mansion is now home to the winery, but also has a fascinating place in Put-in-Bay’s past, which you can find out all about on a tour of the building. And the tour is accompanied by a wine tasting of five varieties of Put-in-Bay Winery wine, so even if you don’t care much for history, you’ll still have some fun!
