  • Edison Birthplace Museum

          The Edison Birthplace Museum was opened to the public by Thomas Edison's daughter Madeleine in 1947. Thomas Edison was born in this red brick cottage on the banks of the Milan Canal Basin on February 11, 1847. The home is run by the Edison Birthplace Association, Inc. and is the only Edison site that has Edison family on the Board.  Tours go through the seven rooms in the Birthplace home as well as the Welcome Center where tickets are purchased. The rooms are furnished with period family pieces, inventions, photographs and other objects through which guests are told of Edison, his family, and the impact of the great inventor and his ideas on the world. The Birthplace is open at different times throughout the year and by appointment (closed in January). The last tour always leaves the office one-half hour before closing.  Special rates for groups over 10 people are available.

  • McKenna's Inn Bed and Breakfast

    McKenna's Inn Bed and Breakfast is located on an historic, private lane in Catawba Island Township, Ohio (a peninsula). At the inn we feature comfortable rooms with such amenities as fireplaces, private baths, queen-size beds, and air conditioning. Our wooded lot provides the right amount of seclusion and quiet to afford our guests a restful night's sleep. In order to guarantee the highest level of privacy for our guests, we require reservations to be made in advance and tours are given by appointment only.

    In the morning, the aroma of fresh coffee and Joe's scratch made nut breads or scones will make you twice as glad you came. McKenna's Inn is located near many local attractions -- just one mile from Miller's Ferry to Put-In-Bay and 20 minutes from Marblehead lighthouse and the ferry to Kelley's Island. We are very close to local wineries, antique shops, art and craft shops, dozens of charter fishing captains, restaurants, and state parks and wildlife refuges. Cedar Point Amusement Park is only twenty-five minutes away.

    In 2008, we took a huge step forward in our ongoing efforts to be as environmentally friendly as possible.  A wind turbine now supplies a significant portion of our energy needs.  This newest investment in our future coupled with all the other ways we strive to reduce our carbon footprint make McKenna's Inn far and away the greenest lodging choice in Ottawa County.

    For the privacy and comfort of our guests, reservations are required prior to arrival.  Tours are by appointment only and will not be given while guests are in residence.
