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

My family has been visiting lakeside inn about 2 times a year for 4 years and we absolutely love it! The building is over 100 years old and wears it's character and charm warmly. Winters are beautiful, with the fireplaces burning 24/7, endless firewood and a couple living room spaces to gather and play games. We always bring plenty of... More

The details....stayed Friday Oct 18th, off-season, 3rd floor room, paid $115. We're in our mid 40 's, well traveled, from Chicago, Detroit and NY so have been around. This is an older Inn, it is not young, it is not pretentious, it is well worn, small in places, expansive in others, therein lies its appeal. If you are looking for... More

There was one person who ran the Inn, and they were present between 10am and 10pm. If you needed anything outside of those hours, you are out of luck. The floors were wood. Not hardwood, just wood. They creaked, loudly, whenever you walked. I heard everything that everyone else was doing and saying, and it kept me up all night.... More

Me and my husband went here for our "minimoon" right after we got married in August. We stayed in the Treetop room for 3 nights and it was amazing. The private beach access is really the best part. We watched the sunset over Lake Michigan every night, had fires on the beach at night, swam and relaxed all day...it was... More

Extremely outdated small room..very dark and old...slanted roof made it difficult to stand up straight..I just wanted to go to sleep and forget about where I was...the reason we choose the Lakeside Inn was because of its proximity to Lake Michigan..we have been to many inns and hotels bed and breakfast S but this one was the worst

Having read all of the tripadvisor reviews we knew exactly what to expect when we stayed here, and that's exactly what we got. This building is like a well-loved piece of furniture that has seen better days but that you can't help loving for the nostalgia of it. We stayed in room 28 which was a very good size with... More

While there is some rustic charm, there is a lot of broken-down-ness to the Inn and the house of 11 gables next door. In a house that supposedly sleeps 10, we tried to sleep well with 7 people and it was tough. There are antiquated springy mattresses on the very small beds. One out of two toilets hardly worked (after... More
