I came for a few quiet evenings of stargazing on Lake Michigan and stayed in room 10. The accommodations are not much better than camping and very expensive for what they are. I paid $577 for 3 nights. That includes an upcharge of $25 each night for a cot for my son. The unsmiling innkeeper did not remove the charge... More

Beautiful rustic inn with awesome access to Lake Michigan. Only complaint that I have is with the Inn Keeper lady. She was nasty and rude and seemed to not care about guests. My wife has a food allergy and consumed organic life culture breakfast bars. She approached our table and told us that bringing our own food is against their... More

Yes, the place is a bit worn but that is the charm. We went for a wedding so we were a captive audience. No shampoos or stuff-that felt cheap to me. TRUE, the lady at the front desk during the day was on the verge of nasty-I asked to use the bicycles and she was curt. Turns out there was... More

Our family has been spending a weekend in July up here for the past 10 years. By family I mean 5 siblings and souses, children and their spouses, and now our grandchildren. My mother- in- law has provided this for us as a chance for us to all to get together and enjoy each other. Every year the staff has... More

The lodge is a landmark, classic 1920s Lake Resort with a great beach and lobby but... It's sadly run down not dirty bit quite worn. No shampoo or conditioner little bottles and some desk staff are not ver nice, while another wasn't sure if we could have breakfast the next morning?!? Breakfast was delish but that's another review

This inn has a simple charm and is centrally located to area activities. I loved that the inn has a private beach across the street. It is the ideal place to kick back and relax on the porch or beach. No tv's/internet in the room- perfect chance for some R & R. My only issue was that my sheets had... More

We actually stayed at the sister inn of Lakeside, The Gordan Beach Inn, but we had our breakfast at the Lakeside Inn. I don't care what others are saying, it looked very peaceful and charming. As we enjoyed the breakfast buffett at the Lakeside Inn, people next to us were talking about hearing foot steps in the hallway all night... More

Very shabby. :( Beautiful Historic Place that needs some sprucing up. Beds are hard and bedcovers are OLD. One wooden rocking chair in room. mirror in bathroom was 10 inch oval. Odd to say the least. The best thing about Lakeside Inn is that Lake Michigan is right across the street and it's centrally located for wine & beer tasting.... More

I had a wonderful weekend at the Lakeside Inn. The room was quite small, really simple but quite lovely. We stayed on a blustery fall day. Had a beautiful walk on the beach. We were welcomed back by a roaring fire in the lobby. Mariatafoni's review hits the nail on the head!

This place is great! A step back in time for sure, but a very nice step. The rooms are sparse, its true, this isn't set up for luxury. But it is clean, predictable, warm, dry and welcoming. Wife and I escaped there for a quick weekend getaway before the holidays - and enjoyed the fireplaces and a long winter walk... More
