Lighthouse Lodge B&B

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 October 2011

My new husband and I had our small and intimate wedding at the Lighthouse Lodge. The place was perfect to accommodate all of our close friends and family. The Recreation Room is perfect for everyone to get together and relax and eat breakfast.
The grounds are gorgeous and the lake is spectacular.
The large deck was perfect for a large tent for the reception and the grass by the lighthouse was perfect for the ceremony.
Mike and Bonnie will make you feel at home and will do what they can to accommodate your needs. Bonnie's catering was wonderful; everyone enjoyed every single detail of the lodge.
Only thing that I would recommend is to get and sign a contract for big events. The laid back atmosphere is what makes this place so special, but at the same time can lead to certain misunderstandings.
Nevertheless, this place is a wonderful hidden jewel a shores of lake Shaffer, we loved having our wedding there; it could not have been more perfect!

Room Tip: Every room has its own lovely atmosphere. They are all very pretty and comfortable. The ones up on...

We have stayed in lots of B&B's, but never one like this. The grounds are gorgeous-right on a point on Lake Shafer. They are totally family friendly with areas for the kids to play--on and off their sandy beach. The rooms are perfect-beyond clean!! Bonnie and Mike LOVE what they do and it shows in every way. We're going to go back with the grandkids. Have a great time here-you will NOT regret it!!!! Steve and Ginger

Our daughter was married on June 25, 2011 and we hosted the reception on the deck of the Lighthouse Lodge. Bonnie and Mike Triplett, owners and operators, were absolutely the best hosts you could ask for. Bonnie catered the meals which received 100% rave reviews by our guests. The rooms were wonderful, the staff most helpful. Bonnie was available at every step of the planning process and provided names and addresses for flowers, cakes and rentals. The day and evening were perfect - as was the location on lovely Lake Shafer. I highly recommend the Lighthouse Lodge! AND, Mike was terrific at responding to emails in a very timely manner! Something that always makes planning easier, especially when I live in Ohio, the bride lives in Wisconsin, and the wedding was in Monticello, Indiana!

This was our second time at the Lighthouse Lodge B&B. It was our second time, because we were so impressed with it the first time. The accommodations are not just good, they are excellent. It feels like you are at a small resort. The large deck, yard with a stream running through it, campfire ring, beach, and dock. It is an island of total relaxation with amazing hospitality. Did I mention the amazing breakfast!? Yum, and lots or it. The rooms themselves are outstanding in every way.

Room Tip: Plan ahead. Rooms go quickly, espcially on weekends and the holidays that they are open.

You'll forever remember staying at the Lighthouse Lodge. The food and atmosphere are second only to what I'd expect on arrival at the Pearly Gates. Bonnie and mike are instantly 'family' with us. We enjoy it so much that we go every year. Cannot recommend a better time!!

This marks our 4th visit to The Lighthouse Lodge, and once again, I'm impressed with the friendly, relaxing atmosphere, the cleanliness of the entire estate, and Mike & Bonnie in general. We are always greeted like friends- they remember little details about us and our families.
The beach area is perfect for children to play, with comfy loungers for the adults to oversee and relax.
A few years ago, I rented the entire place (minus the lake cabins) for an 80th birthday party for my parents. We were allowed free rein in the rec room, with the use of their kitchen facilities, including the large grill. All of the rooms were clean and comfortable, and our time their is still talked about by my children and grandchildren. Bonnie outdoes herself on her breakfasts, with a great variety of eggs, meats, fruit, juices and homemade casseroles and pancakes. No one will walk away hungry I guarantee.
It's also a great weekend getaway for two, especially in the fall when the leaves are changing.
I recommend this highly to everyone, no matter what type of getaway you are looking for, you won't be disappointed in the Lighthouse Lodge!

Room Tip: Great lake view rooms available, as well as ground floor rooms for seniors who don't want to cli...

This is our third year traveling from Georgia to meet friends and family at the Lighthouse Lodge. It is such a beautiful place to stay and the kids love the outdoor play area and sand bar. Mike and Bonnie have always been so accommodating to our needs and have made each stay perfect for us and our family. We will be back again next summer!
