The Stonehenge Historic Estate is a beautiful property on South Bass Island that consists of three homes and outbuildings. It was in operation for over 20 years as an historic attraction complete with tours and a gift shop.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Stonehenge Historic Estate’s Farmhouse and Wine Press Cottage were built in the 1800’s.
The Stonehenge Historic Estate Details
The Stonehenge Estate sits on the eastern shore of the island about a half a mile from downtown Put-in-Bay. The property provides stunning views of Lake Erie and the surrounding islands. It is also very close to many things to do in Put in Bay like the Chocolate Cafe and Museum, Goat Soup and Whiskey, and the crystal cave at Perry’s Cave and Family Fun Center.
The attractive stone buildings sit on six acres of woods and beautifully landscaped lawns. The property consists of the farmhouse, wine press cottage, pole barn, four-car garage, workshop, and storage building. The buildings all offer flexible use to their future owner.
The second oldest building on the site, the first floor of the farmhouse consists of a full kitchen, dining, and living room. There is also a full bath and an enclosed porch perfect for enjoying warm evenings on the island. This building was completed in the 1870’s.
Four large bedrooms and a ½ bath can be found on the second floor. New additions include a new roof finished in 2015, hot water heat, and the outdoor patio for admiring the beautiful grounds.

This two-story structure also includes a lofter bedroom area, a full bathroom, and storage area. There is also a new roof, large cellar, and recently added electric baseboard heat.
