I have been coming to Arbor Lights resort for 11 years now since my divorce with my three daughters. It is something we look forward to every year. John and Mary are fantastic people, the rooms are clean and the HEATED & optic lighted pool is awesome.Most resorts along the lake have cats and that doesn't bother me. I read... More

Arbor lights was a fantastic stay. My husband and I brought our three kids here and we all had a fantastic time. Pay no mind to the negative reviews. John and Mary were very friendly and we were well received upon arrival. Our room was very clean and had all the amenities. The window air conditioners worked well to keep... More

After reading the two bad reviews I just want to say that they were exaggerated. We stayed with our family in 3 rooms and they all were very clean. We have stayed here before also. Yes, this is an older place, but if you are coming to Indiana Beach, most are coming for that old timey lakehouse atmosphere that we... More

I know the owners of arbor light... they will go out of their way to make people feel comfortable... while this is not a high end resort, it is family friendly, and close to indiana beach. Its the perfect place if you dont want to spend alot of money... John and Mary are very friendly.....

this was the worst "resort" I've ever stayed at!!!! The rooms were very old, outdated and disgusting! The shower knobs were falling off, the medicine cabinet has mildew and rusty. The towels and sheets are very old.There are too many stray cats hanging around because the owners feed them. The pool outside is ok, but had a lot of bugs.... More

I made reservations to stay here last summer. The "resort" was difficult to find. When we pulled up I made my decision that there was no way in the world that I was going to stay here but since I had already paid over $100 for the night my husband convinced me to at least take a look at the...

We found Arbor Lights in June of last year. This year we went back for our second trip. The location is perfect (I hope you like cats. Rather than ignoring all the stray cats that the park attracts, the owner tames them so that they do not harm anyone). They are right next to the service entrance to Indiana Beach.... More

This was our fourth year returning to Arbor Lights for our family vacation. We usually have enough people that we rent a room and the three bedroom cottage. We stay for three nights and four days. It is by far not a 5 star hotel, but it is comfortable and works for our family. We are close enough to walk... More

We just returned from Monticello and Indiana Beach. We have been going there for years but this is the first time we tried a new resort. Mr. & Mrs. Walker (the owners) were so very friendly and helpful. We were a party of 12 with a baby. We rented a room and a 2 bedroom mobile home. The rooms were... More

we booked the 3 bedroom cottage which was actually a converted garage. the owners were very intrusive wanting to know everything that was going on. there were cats all over the place, they feed the cats and warn you not to touch the cats. we were told that the toilet in the cottage had a slow flush and that not...
