Thanks to careful research and planning, my family's stay at Taylor's Resort on the bay was a memorable one. Our cottage was booked six weeks in advance for the 4th and was pretty much everything we expected, from a spacious kitchen with full mod cons to two bedrooms with a cozy set of bunks, single bed, and full queen, plus a sofa/futon in the living room/kitchen area. There was also a nice breezeway, ample-sized bathroom with vintage pine interior (and high-pressurized shower with vintage blue tile) and storage closet. The whole interior of our cabin had a vintage feel, with pinewood paneling all around and sliding glass windows overlooking the grove of trees and golden field that was our back yard. Our cabin was at the end of the lot (of seven) and, with the front door and windows completely shut, offered private seclusion from the rental property next door, which was separated from ours by a low, wire-mesh fence and buzzed with activity from dawn 'til dusk.

The bay was just a quick walk down to the pier, which jutted out across an inlet and provided a beautiful view of Lake Erie and Cedar Point beyond. There was a boat ramp and dock for jet skis, along with a small, sandy wading area. The "beach" was not especially inviting and the water contained several snakes and mallards. The swimming pool on the opposite end of the property was ancient and water filthy on the first of the month. As for the "recreation room", it was really nothing more than a storage shed, with stacks of lumber, poor lighting, and a foosball table that was not much fun to play (due to busted players that were either strung together or broken in half). The rec room did have a couple of sofas and wall-mounted TV along with a washer and dryer and perhaps a fridge for storing fish, but reeked of stale old paint and, like the swimming pool and the wading beach, was also not very inviting. There was also a basketball hoop outside of the rental office that was missing a net when we first arrived, but was later fitted with a new one. However, the rim was not regulation height and angled downward and, much like the foosball table, not a whole lot of fun to play.

What I liked best about this place was the atmosphere of being in the woods, middle-class clientele, and the personal attention that we received from the owner-Myra-from the moment that we arrived. She was more than happy to honor an online coupon we brought with us and tended to our every need. When she learned that the DVD player in our cabin was missing, she went out and bought a brand new one (which was fantastic since I had brought National Lampoon's Vacation along). The TV was an old 19” RCA with a CRT and standard cable service including AMC, TCM, TNT, ESPN, and VH1. Free wireless fidelity internet was also available for those with a mobile device, although the Wi-Fi network tended to jam-up fast with the number of online guests and therefore ran slow or not at all (and therefore I suggest bringing a mobile broadband cellular modem for backup).

While clean bed linens and pillows for all four beds were provided, the fitted blankets over the mattresses were dirty with traces of hair. There was a shortage of electrical outlets in the living room/kitchen area and everything including the TV/DVD, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, lamp, was plugged into one central hub. The outlet above the electric range (stove) was falling off the wall and needed reattached. The coffeemaker was filthy and I had to clean it before I could use it. The kitchenette was well-stocked with (clean) plates, bowls, cups, and silverware. We enjoyed most of our meals at the kitchen table in front of the TV, and took full advantage of the fridge/freezer, electric range, and oven. We also made use of the charcoal grill outside a couple of times; we ate out once at the Bayshore Country Market & Pizzeria up the road.

Also nearby was Johnson's Island, Marblehead Lighthouse State Park, Lake Point Park, and Meadowbrook Marsh, all of which we visited over the course of four days and three nights. The highlight of our stay was the fireworks over Bay Point Marina on the eve of our nation’s independence, which we were able to take in from the boat dock/pier of Taylor’s Resort.

Room tip: End cabins (#1 #7) are more private than others.

Loved staying at this resort. It has everything. A Swimming Pool fenced in, a small motel, laundry room, Rental cabins, and a private boat ramp and dock. I believe they also had a game room.

Microwaves, coffee pot, bed, couch, table, Ac. Love this place, have stayed here 3 times. Would love to visit again. Great rates.

I have stayed all over the Marblehead area and this is a kitschy, clean place. It has a cute, funky kitchen, 2 bedrooms and an exceptionally small bathroom. However, it has a great screened in porch, a personal grill and picnic table, and a fabulous view of the bay. If you have more than one family and are staying for a weekend or longer, I highly recommend renting a couple of these cabins and having a ball. Go grocery shopping so you can take advantage of the microwave, fridge, coffeemaker and stove - and the grill, of course. There is a pool, a playground, a fire pit, and a boat ramp. Go sit and reflect on the benches by the water. It was much cleaner than I anticipated. The only downside was the microscopically small shower and the water pressure. But it got the job done. It is easy access to all the fun things there are to be in the area. Go have fun!
And....I thought the owner was a sweetie.

Room tip: There are "motel" type rooms up front, but splurge and get a cabin.

Yeah, ok, if you are looking for luxury, you are at the wrong place. But, if you want a clean, accomodating and friendly place to sleep, you can't beat Taylors. This complex has a 5 room motel and several cabins that lead on down to Lake Erie with water access. Myra is terrific and will try to tend to your every need. Taylors is centrally located to downtown Marblehead, Catawba Island, the ferry to Put n Bay, African Lion Safari, Cedar Point, Port Clinton, etc. There is also a very clean pool, and the price is unbelievable.

Room tip: Could use some new pillows

I really want to give this place a better rating, but it just didn't do much for me. It was a basic, old cabin. The best thing about it was that there was plenty of space, unlike a hotel room. I also enjoyed the screened in porch. Everything worked in the cabin, so no complaints there. We were glad that we brought our own pillows because the ones provided had seen better days. One of the box springs had a huge chunk missing. Not sure what that was all about but it made me feel a little strange. We accepted things as they were as we didn't feel any of it was worth complaining about. Just sharing my findings and feelings.
