Step back in time and immerse yourself in a serene and tranquil 1880's homestead.  Boasting 24 acres of land beautifully situated on Castalia's famous  Cold Creek, Millsite Lodge is the perfect locale for your next family retreat, business luncheon or social gathering. Listen to the birds sing from the back porch of our Gables, fish for trout along the creek that never freezes then finish the day enjoying smores by our firepit. Take advantage of all that Erie County Ohio has to offer!  From birding to wineries, islands to shores, Millsite Lodge is a stone's throw from something incredible. We invite you to discover this unique piece of Ohio history. Let our family take care of your family.

Just a few steps from the lodge is Cold Creek, northern Ohio’s only year round trout fishing destination. There you will find mature Rainbows, Brooks, and Browns waiting to contest the most able of fly fishermen! You can clean your catch onsite and immediately smoke or grill your dinner to perfection. 


A place where great memories are made. There was so much to do at the Mother’s Day event but relaxing at the same time with the birds and flow of the stream. We got some great pictures with the trees in bloom. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. I can’t say enough about this wonderful Mother’s Day! Thank you Beth, Ranae, Danny and Eunice!
