Lakeside Inn surrounds you with that cozy rustic northern Lodge feeling and also sets you back in time with it's historic preservation and charm. Their private Lake Michigan beach is across the street but is only accessible by many steep steps. Other near by beaches and sand dunes are more easily accessible if needed.

My family and I were at the Lakeside Inn for Thanksgiving and had the most wonderful meal ever. The Inn is gorgeous, with a very interesting history. Service was wonderful and staff was very friendly and accommodating. They had a traditional Thanksgiving dinner buffet with turkey and ham. They also had an amazing assortment of seafood and some Norwegian favorites.... More

Beautiful quaint and simple lakeside inn that is over a century old located on a high overlooking a beautiful Lake Michigan beach. I only come here after November 1 until late spring when it is two nights for one and only between Sunday-Thursday when few if anyone is here. Rooms are nice and comfortable. The limited off season staff are... More

This is one of my favorite places in all the world!! I have returned to this precious spot year after year. Perhaps 15 years ago, I was traveling with a friend and we stumbled upon Lakeside Inn while exploring the area. First of all, we were enthralled by the incredible collection of Edward Curtis photographs that adorn the walls. Curtis... More

We selected Lakeside Inn at the recommendation of the bride-to-be of my nephew due to its convenience to their wedding venue at Weko Beach in Bridgman, MI. After checking the website photos and seeing the absolute charm and history of this Inn, I immediately booked rooms for my husband and me and then two more adjoining rooms for my daughter... More

A Very disappointing overpriced visit. This historic building is dirty. Cobwebs. Dusty. Cluttered. The rooms and hotel common areas are decorated with unnerving American Indian imagery everywhere. Some interesting 1920s Craftsman decor is scattered about haphazardly. The owners clearly don't get the basics right. On one of the biggest holidays of the year, they were undergoing a huge painting project... More

I liked the lodge a lot, but it is a bit funky and needs some sprucing up. That said, they are in the process of stripping and repainting. Unfortunately, that was happening during our stay, which definitely was a negative. I imagine that a historic lodge of this type must be constantly worked on or it will disintegrate. The room...

We were excited to stay at Lakeside. We love the area and have been coming up to Lake Michigan for years. Normally we would stay at the Super 8 in Sawyer and deal with the motel. After all we are about the beach. I must admit that when we drove up last weekend I was very disappointed that the front... More

I rented room 4 which faces the lake. When we checked in, I was surprised to find they were scraping and painting the front porch. The workers were wearing full protected gear and air masks. Our room window faced the front porch. It has a plastic over it, but the window was still filled with paint dust. We immediately found... More

If Wes Anderson had chosen the location for a Midwestern take on Dirty Dancing, he would've done it here. Plenty of creaking wood floors and taxidermy make this authentic cabin-style B&B exactly what I wanted for a late summer inland beach getaway. The gentleman at the front desk was folksy and polite. The room was austere and comfortable with a... More
