“Inn Love!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We just returned from a memorable 2 night stay at the Lake Country Inn. It is worthy
of the excellent reviews! Its location is ideal for walking to restaurants, shops, and the harbor and beaches. The rooms are extraordinarily clean and beautifully painted and furnished. Our bed (and bedding) was by Ralph Lauren, and I appreciated that luxury. The morning coffee was freshly brewed, and our balcony (or porch or patio or the lovely "gathering room") are ideal places to enjoy a cup each morning. I felt remarkably comfortable, and enjoyed talking to the friendly guests and the welcoming staff each day as we left and returned. What a gem to find in harbor country!

We very much appreciate your review – – really enjoyed the very clever title. Our goal is that guests feel like they are staying at a friend's home when they visit New Buffalo. Actually, the whole idea of owning the property evolved from the fact that we have been hosting family and friends at our private house in the area for decades and really enjoy seeing them happy and relaxed during their visits. One asset that our property also has that I like to mention is that we typically have really awesome guests staying with us. Atmosphere is very important and in a large part related to our guests and how much they are enjoying their stay.

We are grateful and thanks – – hope you can make it back soon.

My wife and I just celebrated our 1st. wedding anniversary at the Lake Country Inn. We spent two nights in the Saffron room, it was very clean and the bed was amazing. Loved the balcony and the shower also. Could use a little bit bigger tv in the room but that is my only suggestion. The staff was AMAZING! Great location. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

Thank you so much for your review. We are very pleased that we were able to help you enjoy your First Anniversary. Our staff really enjoys hearing about positive feedback from a guest and I'll be sure they are aware of your kind comments. The TVs in the Saffron and Orange room are currently the smallest on the property. We anticipate some bigger sets in these rooms by the fall. Our Tower room currently has the largest LED Smart TV at 42 inches.

Again, thank you so much for choosing us. Hope to see you back for more anniversaries in the future.

Great times at the Lake Country Inn! We arrived on a Friday and stayed in the Saffron room (SW corner of the property, 2nd floor, treetop view). The staff was courteous, the breakfast food was nice (continental breakfast) and the neighborhood is wonderful. My wife --the birthday girl-- loved it as well. We both loved sitting on the porch, drinking our wine and relaxing.

What's pretty cool about it as well--- if you take the Amtrak to New Buffalo, the stop is a few blocks away. Super convenient. It's also very walkable to the beach, downtown, restaurants, the harbor, Oinks (a must-visit) and many other places.

Thanks again!

So happy the birthday celebration went well. We really appreciate your review also. Thanks for mentioning the nearby Amtrak platform. There are multiple inbound and outbound trains every day connecting New Buffalo to Chicago. So if you're from the city you can get to Buffalo in a little over an hour. While you are staying with us you don't need a car as you can walk to pretty much everything you need. Winery tours, cabs, and casino shuttles are also available. Also, if you're not from Chicago but want to visit you can take the train and avoid all the traffic and parking challenges. The link to the Amtrak schedule can be found on our homepage. Having the train platform so close is pretty cool.

Looking forward to your turn; thanks again.

We were impressed with the cleanliness and overall ambience of the Lake Country Inn. We had 2 rooms, the Orange Room and the Blue Room, both on the first floor. Very comfortable beds. They had made the detached garage into a family/gathering room that made a great place to play board games. The covered porches were a nice place to enjoy a cup of coffee. Good parking, good location. I would recommend the Lake Country Inn wholeheartedly. One thing they might want to think about is providing a full length mirror and a docking station for music.

We very much appreciate your review and thank you for choosing us. Visiting the local vineyards and wineries is by far one of the most popular activities with our guests. There are multiple excellent wineries within a 20 to 30 minute drive from our property. Our favorites include Tabor Hill, Lemon Creek, Gravity, and Round Barn. Many of the vineyards host events and have live music on the weekends during the summer. Tabor Hill has an outstanding restaurant. Also, there are multiple tours available so you don't need to worry about driving. Cab service is also available to the vineyards during the summer.

We anticipate installing some full-length mirrors in the near future. Hope we see you back soon.

My husband and I stayed at Lake Country Inn for four nights and it was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. It was so clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Normally, after traveling, I'm ready to get back in my own bed, but I miss the one at lake country inn! The owner also went above and beyond to help us out when we found ourselves in a difficult situation. We'll be back!

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your visit and Happy Anniversary. We frequently have couples staying with us who are celebrating anniversaries. There are lots of romantic activities in the area. Our leading recommendation would be a walk on the beach during one of our exquisite sunsets. Otherwise, we feel our rooms offer a very romantic and comfortable setting. Hopefully we'll see you back for number eleven; if not sooner.

We loved our stay at the Lake Country Inn. For starters the place was spotless. I don't know if I have ever stayed someplace so clean. Check in was simple and fast. All employees were friendly and informative. We stayed in the Orchid room which was large and the bathroom was beautiful. They have a fridge in the kitchen for your use along with ice buckets, ice, and wine glasses you can take back to your room. There is a deck out back and an all season room detached stocked with games etc. They also have free Netflix in all the rooms. We walked everywhere in town. This place is definitely in the best location. I would go back tomorrow. Loved it!!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room but when we return would probably choose one with a balcony.

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you so much for your review. We have some new staff this summer. Austin joined us in May as a level II intern from Michigan State University; he is very enthusiastic about the hospitality industry and has been doing a great job. Likewise, the remainder of our staff truly enjoys helping our guests have a great visit. Combine this with our wonderful guests and the net result is a very positive and upbeat atmosphere at our property.

Thanks again for being part of our summer. Hope we see you back soon.
