We booked our stay knowing that no innkeeper would be present and that breakfast was not included, but once we were there, we really missed those two things. The historical house is nicely preserved, but is located close to a major, noisy highway and far from amenities such as restaurants. Not within walking distance of the lake shore, as we... More

On a trip to Detroit from Iowa, we spent a night at the DunesWalk Inn. The Porter Queen Room had a small kitchenette with microwave and fridge, and there was a nice queen bed and a glass tile tub/shower in the bathroom. We found the place quiet, easily accessible, and a fresh room in a restored old Inn. For us,... More

We never stay in B&Bs but we thought we would try this one. It was a great little place that was very well done. The room was very comfortable. We tried to book online but it wouldn't let us book the same day. We called and they were very accommodating even making sure that they left a pack and play... More

We truly enjoyed our two night stay here! Beautifully appointed with very comfortable bed! Loved all the reading material and historical literature in the library. We have stayed in B and B/ Inns before that use the same system of checking in and found it comparable (though DunesWalk more expensive than those or owner in house/full breakfast incl). It was...

It was our first time visiting Michigan city and had no idea what to expect. This place is like a home away from home. I loved it, hubby loved it and the kids loved it. It was a wonderful trip and would definitely come back!

This late 1800 brick mansion was totally gutted and rebuilt from inside out - immaculately clean, immaculately rebuilt, lovely contemporary decor and color scheme in walls, bathroom tiles and common areas. Artwork is Indiana Dunes prints or memorabilia. You are given a key code to get into building and room, so no innkeepers, no breakfast, just brochures and maps at... More

Our family rented the entire mansion for the 4th of July weekend. We enjoyed the fact that we had the entire place to ourselves. The grounds around the mansion were great for us to move around on. The rooms were roomy and comfortable. We were 17 people altogether and had plenty of space. The hotel is close to the beach... More

Lovely old mansion converted into a 5-room hotel, located right on a busy 4-lane highway. The train runs at all hours on the other side of the highway. Lovely furnishings, nice library with books on the dunes and local birds. We stayed for two sleep-deprived nights on a bed with a footboard, making it too short for tall people; the... More

We chose this restored/renovated mansion to experience the area near the Indiana Dunes and to support a local business. We stayed in the Porter Queen room, and were surprised and delighted to find that the renovation included the amenites that we enjoy in a conventional hotel: flat screen TV, individual climate control, WiFi, plenty of electrical outlets, coffeemaker, coffee, and...
