Support local Family-Owned Businesses

Steve Alexander, along with his wife Tiffany and son Jac, have been frequent visitors to Put-in-Bay for years. With family and friends who own businesses on the island, they are deeply connected to the community. In January of 2020, Steve purchased Bay Lodging, just before the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Despite the challenges of being a new business owner during a difficult time, Bay Lodging survived its first summer with the help of their loved ones. Since then, the hotel has been thriving, with Steve’s family-centered approach making it an inviting destination for guests of all ages.
