Lighthouse Lodge B&B

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Can't say enough good things about staying at the Lighthouse Lodge. The cottage was great for our family. The grounds are fun for everyone. From the beach and play set to the fire pits and decks. Spend a wonderful week there for the second year in a row with my husband to two young kids. Even with a few rainy days it was nice to sit in the sun porch and play cards. And you can't bet Bonnie's breakfasts!! Going back next year!

I just spent a wonderful three days with my family at "Lighthouse". Was very disappointed to read the review provided by "aviat0r". Seems they are so into themselves they can't see all the good things going on around them. No fruit to munch on though the day? Perhaps too many children taking one bite and wasting the rest? How long would you provide? How big of an effort did you put forth to talk to anyone? Maybe the "all about me attitude" was shining through too much. I hope most folks reading reviews to help with making their choices for the next wonderful days at the lake overlook the one bad review and understand that you will be hard pressed to find better than the " Lighthouse" operated by Mike and Bonnie . My only suggestion is to install a pool.....paradise would then be complete!

We just got back from a two-night getaway at Lighthouse Lodge. The property and lodge are both beautiful and well-kept, and breakfast was fantastic. I am a vegetarian, and host Bonnie was more than willing to accommodate my needs. There are paddle boats for use for guests, which we enjoyed, and had the weather been more cooperative, we would have enjoyed the beach area and outdoor seating areas, which are plentiful. We will definitely be returning here next year for another visit to the Honeymoon Suite, but will be staying for more nights this time!

As the title suggests, this is our second review of the Lighthouse Lodge, so also read our first review.

Overall, we were OK with our second stay, which included our children. However, we will not be returning next summer.

Pros:

excellent breakfasts
very clean room
lovely grounds (in a not-so-lovely town)
beach area was perfect for our children; toys are included

Cons:

1. No snacks this trip. Our earlier review mentioned a full bowl of fresh fruits and cookies available throughout the day. We were very disappointed. Cutbacks?

2. We were also disappointed by the "hospitality" this trip.
We were not addressed by name, nor was much attempt made to get to know our children. (not the case with three other couples and their children).
If things were "welcoming and friendly" our first visit, they were "polite and required" this trip.

3. Boat ride was mentioned to us for our day of departure, but didn't take place...distraction?

When we are handed a sheet with websites listed where we can review an establishment, we will be honest.

The Lighthouse B&B was a pleasure to stay at....Bonnie's breakfasts were yummy with lots of home made goodies and Mike was always around to see that our needs were met and satisfactory,there were paddle boats for our use and Mike will take you on a Pontoon ride (at Cost)up and down the lake and stop for swimming if you like....there are cottages for rent(which our group did)it had everything we could possibly need... very neat and clean...Mike and Bonnie were very hospitable,friendy and accomodating....we couldn't have asked for anything better..June1

This was my first experience staying at a B&B and it was wonderful. Our room was very clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Bonnie is a wonderful cook. She even made a special dish for me to accommodate me and my food allergies. It was delicious. I was blown away. You won't find such personalized service at any hotel. It was like staying with member of the family. Home away from home. I only wished I could have stayed longer.

We had a delightful stay. The next time we will stay longer. Our room was beautiful and Mike and Bonnie are very nice and served up a wonderful breakfast. After breakfast Mike took us on a tour of the lake on his pontoon boat. It was so peaceful and relaxing. I am smiling just thinking about it. :-) This would be a great place to get together with friends too.

Room Tip: We were in the Sunset Penthouse Suite. It had a jacuzzi tub and a nice little porch.
