Just got back from our vacation to Indiana Beach, where we stayed at Bay Side Resort in the penthouse. The Indiana Beach entrance is literally a block or 2 away, which was perfect. We didnt need to eat at the park, we just walked to the place for lunch, and went back when we were done. There is a fully... More

Our family has been going to Indiana Beach every summer for 7 years. We usually have friends and/or other family members with us. We stayed at a couple different places the first 2 years, but we had to either pay for 2 separate rooms or if we found a place big enough for 10-12 people we had to bring our... More

We stayed at Bayside Resort last year and we are going there again. Great place to stay and VERY friendly people. Jerry and his wife make you feel like family. We stayed in the Celebrity Suite and it was ideal for us. Right on the lake, great view. If you are looking for a great place to stay, then go... More

My wife and I have been staying At Bayside for over 10 years now,along with many friends and family members. Terry and Jackie, the owners, have treated us like family. Bayside is clean, quiet, and tons of fun. It's located just a 2 minute walk from the entrance to Indiana Beach Amusement Park,which is fantastic! We have a 24' boat... More

Me and my family have been coming to Indiana for 18 years now, so we have pretty much stayed all over Indiana beach. This place by far blows every other resort out of the water. I stayed here last year and it was my first choice this year. It's extremely affordable, clean, and beautiful! The owners take care of you... More

I stayed at this little resort with my two children and husband when visiting Indiana Beach. The owners were unbelievably friendly and accomodating. It was clean, well kept, and quiet. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and well kept. We will be visiting again. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend!

I normally stay at chain properties but the Best Western was booked and there are only two places to stay in Monticello. I thought it was pretty nice for a smaller motel until I went to take a shower in the morning. I opened the shower curtain and there was a big glob of ugly hair. My wife and I... More

This review is a little belated, but I did want to share that we enjoyed our stay at Bay Side very much at the end of this past summer. :) We usually stay on the ground at Indiana Beach, but its incredibly overpriced and kind of run-down over there now, so we tried our luck with a different property this...
