After a few nights travelling around and staying at motels we came to the Hearts Delight to stay for the rest of our visit.
So glad we came to stay at the B&B; - so much more comfortable than motels with lots of space to relax plus a real homely feel.
Mike and Dar are great hosts. So friendly and happy to do anything for you but also very respectful of your privacy.
The grounds in which the B&B; is set are really beautiful with the two lakes and lots of green space. So peaceful to sit out by the lake on the swing chair and take in the surroundings. The grounds are beautifully kept and I'm sure that Mike puts in a lot of hard work to keep things looking so nice.
Would be great to go back in the summer in the warmer weather when you would be able to swim in the lake.
We were also invited to make use of the hot tub on Mike and Dar's deck. A must have for anyone staying as to be able to relax in the tub with a view across the grounds and lakes was really special + great music provided from the house.
All in all, great value for money, beautiful surroundings and can't speak highly enough about our hosts - perfect!!
Thank you Mike and Dar for a wonderful stay.

Hearts Delight and the hosts, Mac and Dar are just that...a delight! The cabin is clean and comfortable with all the amenities of home but in a very relaxed country setting. The grounds are just beautiful and well maintained with a fire pit, swimming and fishing ponds, walking trails through the woods and a shared hot tub. You could not ask for a nicer getaway that is not that far from many of Ohio's highlights.

I stayed at the Hearts Delight over the Labor Day Weekend and had a wonderful, relaxing stay. I loved the hot tub and then the quiet setting which helped me wind down and get a great night's sleep each night after fun and busy days. Mostly I enjoyed the amazing hospitality of the hosts Mac and Dar McCormick. It was a joy spending time with them and I am definitely going to return.
The very comfy bed was fantastic and large screen TV was an unexpected bonus. And the music at the bonfire while sitting around the lake at night, that was epic! The Heart's Delight is truly a great find!
"Was recommened by a friend & now I'm recommending !!!"

I stayed 4th of July weekend a Heart's Delight and couldn't have been happier with my stay. Our group consisted of myself, my boyfriend, his 14 year old son, and his son's friend. We had plenty of space in the cabin for all of us, nice comfy beds (and a pull-out mattress in the couch),a kitchen stocked with everything you need to cook at home, big TV and a clean bathroom. And the kids loved the fresh muffins left out for us on our arrival.
However the best part of Heart's Delight is what is outside the cabin! Two beautiful lakes, huge backyard, and clean country air! One lake was for swimming (complete with several rafts),the other for fishing. We could hardly out of the swimming pond. It was nice the kids could entertain themselves running around the yard, swimming, playing video games(we brought our ps3), and exploring while the grownups had some alone time!
This is a great place to stay if you want more out of your lodging then a small overpriced hotel room. It's private, it's clean it's at least double the size of a standard hotel room (for less!), and our hosts couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. We came to the Sandusky area to got to Cedar Point/water parks and debated whether or not to stay closer to the amusement park. I'm so happy we went with this cabin. The drive to Sandusky is only around 45 minutes and it's through beautiful countryside. So we got the best of both worlds! Fun(crowded!) park during the day and a country retreat at night! We will definitely be staying next trip to the area.
Thank you again Mac and Darylss We had a wonderful time !!

I stayed with my family at Heart's Delight and couldn't be happier. The cottage was large enough for all of us with plenty of room for all of us to sleep comfortably. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals to save on eating out, plus fresh fruit and muffins that we could just grab and go. There was a grocery store not too far away that we were able to buy what we needed for our stay. The large tv was also nice to help entertain the kids when we just needed down time.
My family really enjoyed the lake available for swimming and all the water floats to relax and play on. The hot tub was also a great amenity to use after a hard day of playing. It felt great to sit and relax under the stars.
The Hearts Delight is a great place to stay if you want a more personal experience than what you can get at a hotel. The owners even came out and started a campfire for us and we sat around sharing stories of our traveling experiences. I would definitely recommend anyone wanting a nice getaway to try The Hearts Delight.
