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 The rooms were very old, outdated and disgusting!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

The only good thing about this "Resort", is the location. It is an old house converted into a hotel. Our $125.00 a night room was in the attic where they kept an old gas stove from the 1950's. I guess they had no where else to store it. The ceiling's were slanted. You could only stand upright in the center... More

We have been staying at the Arbor Lights Resort for 5 years and are already planning for next year. When leaving all you could hear is I wish we had more time and we are definately coming back next year. The only change is as usual our group is expected to be larger. We always receive a warm welcome from... More

I have been staying at this resort for the last 4-5 years during the same week as a quiet vacation spot. You can walk to the amusement park across the street in less than 2 minutes but not really hear to much noise from the park. The owners are always there as they live on the property and are kind...
