I stayed here recently with a group of friends. We chose the Inn based on its location and historic status. While we enjoyed our stay, I'm not sure I would return based on the condition of the rooms. First, the common areas were lovely. We enjoyed an evening by the fire in the ballroom, and they had board games and... More

We recently stayed again at the Lakeside Inn after a seven year absence. This time we had a corner room overlooking the street and lake which was smaller and quieter than the room we shared last time. We enjoyed the walk down to the lovely and relatively unpopulated stretch of beach and this time strolled around the pond in the... More

My husband and I have stayed in many old and charming places all over the country. This place IS old, but absolutely not charming, unless you enjoy a strong urine smell in your room! First off... The front desk staff seem to care less about speaking to you and seem bothered by any questions you may have. Secondly...our room was... More

I love going to Lakeside in the off-season, when you can stay 2 nights for the price of one. I usually go for a couple of days after Thanksgiving. But it turns out that you can go for Thanksgiving, or for Christmas, or for New Year's Eve -- the last one, I did. Dave (who prepares breakfast for inn visitors)... More

We've been coming here for years. It is not for everyone. Quaint, rustic, not a lot of amenities but we love it. Innkeepers leave at night so guests have keys to enter hotel after hours. Beach access is across the street with lots of steps. No restaurant on site, but there is coffee and a microwave. Lots of places to... More

NO amenities per say. Very old shower/bathroom. No wifi which is NOT a complaint !!! but there is no cell signal in that area so a bit difficult to stay in touch! Prices are very high ($150/$170 a night in the summer??? - a joke) for the offering. Strictly based on the fact that its a great location. The rest... More

Charming old lodge near Lake Michigan. The room was clean and tidy. No amenities to speak of including the cafe which was closed. Price was reasonable for the area and season. Quiet places to relax, read or have a quiet visit. Staff was pleasant, but did not necessarily make us feel like they were glad we were there.

Had a wonderful weekend. Arrived at 11 a.m. which was early.(check-in is at 3 p.m. We were told our room was not ready. Which was fine. Oddly enough, they never asked for our name or what room # we had reserved. We were told to come back at 3. Sooooo, plenty of sights to see here anyway. We found the... More

I found this hotel perfect for a quick getaway. The hotel is very quiet and very old. The best part is the beach access. It is directly across the street from the lake and the lake is sparsely attended since it is all private beaches. We would definitely like to go back soon.

Unfortunately my wife and I were plagued with poor weather the weekend we visited, but the Lakeside Inn was decent enough. We paid one night for two as it was a couple of weeks before their summer season officially began. Our room was spacious and clean and I imagine that their front deck is a real treat during the summer.... More
