My wife and I visited at the end of June and had a wonderful time. We've been vacationing in this area for decades and wish we'd started staying here years ago.
The rooms are very, very nice and the food is excellent. I also doubt you will find nicer, or more attentive hosts. To top it all off, it's just steps from one of the best beaches on Lake Huron and the sunsets are fantastic.
There is only one issue that keeps me from giving it a full 5 stars and that's the lack of air conditioning. This is a purely personal issues for us to to some respiratory issues that make high heat and humidity unbearable for me but this was not an issue during our stay as the temperatures were very mild. Additionally, we normally travel during the cooler periods at the start and end of summer, for the same reason, and we'll definitely be back again and again, just not during the sweltering (to me) weeks of mid-July to late-August.
The proximity to the beach and shade of the old trees around the Inn would have have definitely mitigated the heat so I really don't see this being an issue for most people.
