I can't think of one thing I would change at this place. The rooms are decorated beautifully. The owners Mike and Bonnie were so friendly and made you feel right at home. Breakfast was wonderful. We will definitely stay here again.

Being local to the area, our family had only a couple days to share this summer. We were able to book last minute. Not being sure what we would find once arriving, we were extremely surprised and thrilled. Beautiful property and accommodations. No details were spared in the amenities. Owners and Staff were warm and pleasant. We stayed in the accessible cottage and hope to revisit yet this summer.

The Lighthouse Lodge B&B on Lake Shafer was such a great find! This was our first stay and we’ll definitely be back again and will recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. The rooms have all anyone could ask for; they are very comfortable with private outdoor entrances, and each with a kitchenette. The grounds are beautifully kept with a lot of a decks and lawn on the waterfront so you can easily have quiet time or enjoy socializing with other guests or a group. There’s also a water slide and swing set area if you have kiddos.

The owners, Mike and Bonnie, are so nice and easy going. Bonnie will make sure you are very well fed at breakfast and wowed us with her variety of homemade butters and unique, yummy syrups. Bonnie was also so kind to accommodate a dietary need for us, which was not expected but greatly appreciated.

Mike took several of us guests out on their boat, another unexpected surprise, but definitely a highlight of the weekend. You can also rent a boat or jet skis nearby if you don’t have your own. The town itself is quiet but there’s plenty to do in a long weekend on and off the lake. There’s an amusement park very nearby on the lakefront, a winery and variety of locally owned restaurants.

It’s a very easy drive from Chicago so definitely check it out for an escape from the city hustle and bustle!

Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, great service. There was an error with the online booking service but they more than made up for it. Although there wasn't a ton to do in town in this season, we were given directions and advice and still had a great time. Will definitely be back!

We arrived late at night and could not appreciate any of the views. Nor could we enjoy the outside, because we went for Valentines Day and it was way too cold. However, the owners made it a very warm and welcoming experience the next morning over breakfast! I might suggest getting really good directions before you go however...It's really tucked back in :)

Our review is a few weeks late, but I wanted to take the time to write a review because our stay will always be a favorite memory for us. We stayed in the honeymoon suite on Halloween night and it was cold and stormy outside. It didn't matter, because our room was so warm, comforting, and cozy. The bed was the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in and our bed at home is pretty comfty. The huge tub was a plus and the bathroom was very spacious. Mike and Bonnie were very welcoming and of course Bonnie's breakfast was fit for a king and queen. It was just my husband and I at the time, but we can see us returning with our adult children one way or another. The lodge is very spacious, but can be private, too. We felt like we were really getting a treat staying at the Lighthouse Lodge AND we are only 40 minutes away!!! :)

Mike & Bonnie have a wonderful B&B! The view is spectacular and the hospitality is exceptional. Both of them were very gracious and helpful. They served a delicious homemade buffet style breakfast. We enjoyed visiting with a bridal party for a wedding that was being held on their lawn with a reception on the large deck.

We took their optional pontoon ride around Lake Shafer which was delightful on a warm fall day. There are also 3 cottages available for rental that we looked at for a return trip. One is fully handicap accessible. All of them like the B&B, are tastefully decorated.

We highly recommend their B&B which is conveniently located close to Chicago. Indiana Beach Amusement Resort is on the same lake for summer entertainment. However, the Lighthouse B&B is open all 4 seasons with many things to do in the area including great restaurants.

Room Tip: Suite #7 on the 3rd floor is spacious, includes a balcony with a beautiful lake view.
