Coming to Bottle Bay Resort and Marina has been a summer tradition for locals and vacationers alike for over 40 years.
Here is a little history for you:
In the beginning...
The land Bottle Bay Resort now stands on was owned by the Miller Family. In June of 1963 David & Rose Sloan purchased 5 acres and began to develop the resort. They built the first dock and installed the original pilings. Some of them still stand today. The resort offered 2 deluxe trailers and boat gas. It was known as Sloans Ponder Rosa.
In 1971 Vic and Sandy Colvard purchased the marina and built the store.
In 1979 Jim and Joanne Hintz bought the resort and built the present day cabins and the main house. They installed a water system.
In 1982 Ed & Maureen Tuohy became owners of the resort.
In 1989 John and Dorette High purchased the resort, expanded the docks, added the restaurant and constructed the laundry and shower building.
In 2001 Chip and Julie Houske purchased the resort. The road was paved to the marina. The docks were redesigned and rebuilt making room for 65 boats. The kitchen was expanded and a dumbwaiter was added. Today, we have 6 resort cabins, a restaurant, bar, marina, beach, boat launch, boat rentals and manage vacation rentals in and around Bottle Bay and Garfield Bay. Please join us at Bottle Bay Resort and Marina and experience the tradition.
