Lighthouse Lodge B&B
Ranked #1 of 6 Monticello B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2012

I stayed at the Lighthouse Lodge with our family who was visiting from Oregon to attend daughter's graduation weekend from Purdue. Moreover, I am in the resort and hotel industry ( Destination Hotels and Resorts) and look at all lodging and hospitality experiences with a critical eye to detail and the overall experience. In short, the whole weekend exceeded our experience ...mostly due to the genuine friendly and family atmosphere Mike and Bonnie provide to all guests. We held a party on the outside deck for about 40 people and it was perfect! The setting awesome with the waterfrontage and awesome deck; the assistance of Bonnie and Mike in setting up decorations and even helping on the grille, was most welcomed. But most memorable, was sitting late at night, winding down from a long night...and Mike joining my wife and I fireside in the outdoor fire pit area. We talked about the area and his passion for the taking care of the guests. Our rooms were great and well appointed with all the luxuries expected in any four diamond resort but also with charm from the area. Our breakfast was nothing short of perfect for all of us; Bonnie did a great job with the wheat pancakes, fresh eggs and the whole works. I took an afternoon run which was perfect for me to relax and enjoy the lakeside environment...on foot! Mike and Bonnie---thanks for making our daughter's last weekend at Purdue memorable and for contributing to the hospitality industry in such a positive and caring way!!
Best to you all....and see you again during football season!

We stayed here in the middle of October during fall. The trees were beautiful, the lake was less crowded, and the LIghthouse Lodge was fantastic. We had never stayed at a B and B before, but I think this place has to be one of the best. Our room was clean and roomy with a private balcony, fireplace, and memory foam mattress. As soon as we came in, the proprietors set us up with things to do in the area, gave us a tour of the property, and let us know how to use the firepit and paddleboats.
That night, the fire and marshmallows were waiting for us, and we had a great time sitting and talking by the fire. In the morning, we were treated to a wonderful homemade breakfast with FOUR different kinds of homemade butter!
We had a fantastic time and were impressed with the friendliness and attentiveness of the hosts, the beauty and cleanliness of the lodgings, and the wonderful breakfast!

Room Tip: We stayed in in the #7 room and really enjoyed having the private balcony and the fireplace.

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!
