Life Celebrations. Affordable Elegance.

Make Your Moment Unforgettable

From the moment you drive onto the Sunset Inn property, the magic and charm of this place is evident. It is steeped in tradition and joy. The cream colored inn with hunter green shutters, a canopied entry way, over a hundred trees, a landscaped lawn, the view of Lake Erie – all create the welcoming atmosphere for your special celebration.

Our 180 degree view of the lake easily captures your attention. There is a never ending horizon of water interrupted only by the occasional sailboat traveling into the harbor. With our full western view of the lake, there is promise of a full spectrum of gorgeous colors at sunset. It’s how we got our name!

You will have full and exclusive access to our private grounds when you book your event with us. There is a deck overlooking the water for guests to sit outside with a drink to enjoy the view. Whether in summer, with flowers in all the window boxes surrounding the deck, or in winter, with piles of white snow heaped against the white picket fence on the cliff, the outside of the Inn is a lovely place for celebrating with family and friends.

Once “inn-side”, the charm continues. There are polished hardwood floors, fresh white linen on the tables, two stone fireplaces, and 36 windows for you to continue your gaze at the lake.

Our uniformed staff will serve your needs, our delicious food will satisfy your appetite, and our charming ambiance will delight you and your guests.
