Sawmill Creek Resort: Huron, Ohio

On a recent visit to Lake Erie Islands & Shores it did not take me long to figure out that there were several family friendly resorts in the area. Sawmill Creek Resort in Huron, Ohio was a nice place to call home while visiting Northern Ohio. It’s not too far from Cedar Point and also offers nice features for business and leisure travelers. Having stayed on the property at Cedar Point the last few times I was in the area, this was a welcome change. I felt like I was more free to explore the Islands & Shores and am so glad that I had the opportunity.

The rooms at Sawmill Creek Resort had a nice feel of home to them. They were warm, inviting and our room even had a cozy fireplace to carry on the feeling of warmth.

Two swimming pools can be found, so weather is not going to stop you from swimming while staying at Sawmill Creek Resort. Here’s a look at the large, outdoor swimming pool.

If golf is your thing, the course here at Sawmill Creek has you covered. The PGA recognized course is among the first created by legendary architect and course designer Tom Fazio. The course is bordered by natural beauty on three sides—Sheldon’s Marsh on the West, Lake Erie on the North and Sawmill Creek on the East. Nature enthusiasts will enjoy a round or two of gold on this course. It’s important to note, that this is a public golf course.

There are a nice selection of restaurants on site and views that keep you in check with nature. I loved the outdoorsy feel that greeted me around every bend at this resort.

I loved my stay here. The biggest disappointment for me was that I had not built time into my itinerary to spend a full day at the resort. The best tip I can give you, is to book your stay at Sawmill Creek Resort and build one full day into your itinerary to bike, fish, swim, explore nature or even go ziplining. With a 500 acre nature preserve nearby, you need to make time to get back into nature.

Cedar Point is nearby, which is a popular destination. A highlight of my visit to the Lake Erie Shores & Islands area was the Merry Go Round Museum. Did you know that you can ride on one of the fastest moving merry go rounds in Sandusky, Ohio? Experience Sawmill Creek Resort and all that Lake Erie Shores & Islands has to offer. In my opinion, this area is a hidden gem in the midwest. Plan a visit today by ordering your travel guide to Lake Erie Shores & Island today.

*Thank you to Sawmill Creek for hosting me and to Lake Erie Shores & Islands for the hospitality.

  1. thanks for the introduction, I wonder if there are any places or “point of interest” to see around lake erie~? @knycx.journeying

  2. I’ve never been to that part of Lake Erie! I’m from Indiana originally, though, so always fun to see posts about the Midwest. I’m intrigued by the “cave like” theme throughout the property, I must admit! Ha! Regardless, great to have so many restaurants, and two pools – that’s one thing we don’t have out here in California like we do in the Midwest – indoor pools! (And the winters here are cold and rainy in my neck of the woods.) Safe travels!

  3. The resort looks really comfortable. The swimming pool looks good and tempting for a dip. The ambience of the place and its environment seems to hold out the promise of a great experience.

  4. Now this is closer than Iowa but seems to capture the things I am interested in. Thanks for sharing this Sarah!!!! That indoor pool……quite inviting!!
