Otterbein North Shore is nestled on Ohio’s Marblehead Peninsula. It borders an independent chautauqua, the historic Lakeside community. To the south, lies the lively city of Sandusky. You will never lack for culture, education, recreation and entertainment.

Take in a lakeside symphony. Tour a local winery. Ride the ferry to the islands. Fish from the pier. Drive across the Bay to Sandusky with its many attractions. We could go on and on!
