“Wonderful find!”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

When we contacted Lake Country Inn upon arriving in New Buffalo, the owner greeted us enthusiastically and showed us which rooms were available. They were all immaculately clean and luxuriously decorated. We chose the Green Room and loved the comfy chaise-type chair with the cozy throw. Our bathroom was large, spotless and had a beautiful tiled shower. The Inn provides beach towels in each room and offers a common kitchen with a small fridge, microwave, wine glasses, paper plates, etc. There were many little touches which went above and beyond what is often offered at an inn. The Inn is on a quiet tree-lined street but is within easy walking distance to the beach, restaurants, etc I would highly recommend this lovely Inn! The rooms were gorgeous and provided a wonderfully relaxing place to stay.

Thank you so much for your review and for your support. It's always great to hear from someone who really enjoyed their stay with us. Also, thank you for posting the pictures of your room. The green room is by far our most colorful. Our website has pictures of the other rooms with their color schemes. Every room is a different color with unique furnishings.

Thanks again so much and we hope to see you back soon.

This summer marked our third year at Lake Country Inn and our second in the 'Orange Room'. The Orange Room provides a front balcony where one can read and/or watch the slow and easy world walk by. Lake Country Inn is not a high-impact, amenities-filled place. It is a get-away from the world of pace and speed, yet still has internet access and TV with Netflix so one is not totally disconnected. The Inn is in easy walking distance to the main strip in New Buffalo and a 6 minute or so walk to the beach. When we are here, we walk almost everyplace -- The Inn is accessible, yet tucked away a little from the masses. Hope and her staff are professional, warm and friendly. The Inn is the best place for an easy, stress-free vacation.

Room Tip: If you want a more private room -go for the Red Room or the rooms in the back. A more open room are...

Thank you so very much for your review and for the multiple return visits. We are very pleased to hear that you found your stay with us relaxing and low stress. Our small size makes it easier to maintain a quieter and more easy-going atmosphere. Also, the building itself looks and feels more like a home which makes it a little easier to relax. If any issue do come up, we typically find out about it pretty quick and are able to take care of things. And as you pointed out, not needing to use your car definitely helps people unwind --- as does taking a long walk along the beach!

We are grateful for your business and thank you again. Hope to see you soon.

I want to start by stating that I can not remember writing a review for much of anything, but feel compelled to share the wonderful experience we had at the Lake Country Inn. For starters, the Inn is immaculate. It couldn't be more inviting. Everything was clean and tidy. As charming as it is from the outside, it was even better on the inside. We were greeted by Mark, one of the owners who gave us the lay of the land. Asked what we were looking to do with our time and gave us helpful suggestions. Our room (The Tower Suite) was fantastic. Extremely spacious and beautiful. From the bathroom to the sitting area, everything was perfect. My favorite part of the room was the private balcony. Though the view is nothing to write home about, the overall atmosphere was just so relaxed that it was just right. You are literally a half a block away from the downtown strip, which is really convenient. You have a handful of restaurants, shops etc to browse through. The beach is about a half a mile walk through town. If I had to sum up our trip in one word........Perfect. I would no doubt plan another trip to the Lake Country Inn.

Room Tip: You would want to choose the upstairs level if you want to have privacy from the balcony. The downs...

Thanks so very much for the review Chris. Really glad you enjoyed staying in the Tower suite. The balconies and porches at the front of the building are really popular in the warmer months. The River Birch that we planted along the street have grown like crazy to the point where you can hardly see the front of the building when their leaves are out and they supply a lot of privacy. As the months get cooler, the Tower suite fireplace comes in handy and the large, wall-mounted, smart TV in the room gives you some great viewing if you want to stay in and watch Netflix.

Otherwise, to say meeting you and your wife was a pleasure would be a huge understatement. We could not be more grateful for the wonderful guests that our property is able to attract. Happy, pleasant guests contribute so much to the atmosphere at Lake Country Inn

Hope to see you guys again soon and happy anniversary.

The rooms are comfortable, the staff is helpful and friendly, there is free on site parking and the location is close to the lake and a block from many restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay there again. Be sure to make a reservation in advance - they do sell out.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and thank you so very much for the review. We receive many positive comments about our location. Most guests really appreciate the short walk to pretty much everything they need while staying in New Buffalo. I especially encourage guests to take the short walk to the beach to catch one of our fantastic sunsets. Also, the Amtrak platform with multiple trains to and from Chicago is just over a block away. We are a short walk to nine different restaurants.

Our weekends are typically full through October. However, starting late August we almost always have rooms available midweek at reduced rates compared to the weekends. Midweek during September is one of my favorite times in New Buffalo – – weather is still warm for the lake and the town is much quieter compared to the summer.

Thank you again, hope you can come back soon.

I took my fiance to the Lake Country Inn for a surprise birthday trip. The inn was beautiful and the staff were great. We stayed in the blue room which is on the first floor near the back of the inn. I would have liked to have one of the rooms with a balcony or patio, but the blue room was still great. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The location is perfect, walking distance to restaurant, the beach, the harbor, and shopping. I would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing, beautiful time.

Thank you very much for the review. It was great having you stay with us. This summer has been a bit cooler than normal with plenty of rain. As a result, the plantings at our property have really thrived. I will say that I don't think the grounds have ever looked better.
Really appreciate you staying with us. Hope to see you back this way soon.

The Inn provides many, if not most of the features you get from large hotel chains but with a great B&B feel. The rooms are nicely set up and decorated and the location is nicely set back from the main drag in town. if you want to stay in a place that is a little different from your run of the mill hotels this is a great choice. A wonderful stay.

Thank you so much for the review and for staying with us. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. One advantage of being a small property is that guests feel more like they are staying at a nice home and that usually makes it easier to relax. Also, you never feel overwhelmed by things being too busy or crowed. Plus, it is easier to communicate with the staff and the owners directly.
Thank you again. Hope you can return soon.

We had a great visit here for our wedding anniversary. Stayed in the saffron room with a private balcony, room was beautifully decorated and clean. Staff was super friendly too. Much better value on a weeknight. Easy walk to everything in town.

Very happy your stay went well and thank you for the review. The Saffron room with balcony is a favorite especially during the summer. We also have a large rear deck area, patio area, and free standing community room for all guests to use. Rates are lower midweek and off season. Specific rates can be found on our home page. There is a 6% Michigan tax, but we have no additional fees otherwise.
Hope you can make it back soon--- thanks for staying with us.
