My wife and I were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay near the beach for a get-a-way. We were blown away by the value of Lake Country Inn. We were walking distance from a grocery store, several restaurants, and Lake Michigan. The rooms were elegantly decorated, perfectly clean, and so peaceful. We are really looking forward to returning... More

Thanks so very much for your review and for staying with us. Delighted that you enjoyed your visit! New Buffalo is really a pretty small village. Given our central location, you can pretty much walk to everything. Also, there is an Amtrak train platform one block from the inn if you wanted to take a day trip into or from... More

Both the staff and the owners are personable and helpful; if it rained while we were waiting for the Amtrak, Mark, an owner, volunteered to come by so we could wait for the train in his car. My wife and I found that to be one more friendly gesture in a fine getaway weekend.

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights during Memorial Day weekend 2015. It did not even feel like a hotel. Instead it felt like we were staying at someones house. They have a nice little outdoor sitting room with fireplace,Tv, and couches to relax on. We stayed in the blue room. Im glad that I chose a room with... More

A friend and I stayed in New Buffalo recently for a girls' weekend away and the Lake Country Inn was perfect--impeccably clean, comfortable, and friendly. The location is perfect being right in town. We were able to easily walk to restaurants and the lake. The staff was great with recommendations. We especially enjoyed the outside patio and "hang out" space... More

My wife and I stayed during their "off busy season" and stayed for two nights. Very clean and beautiful and the inn keepers Joyce and Charlotte were extremely nice. We also met one of the owners, Mark very briefly and he was very nice. Everyone was very welcoming and informative. I would recommend staying at this Inn.

The Lake Country Inn met all our expectations. As mentioned by many, it offers clean, comfortable and spacious accommodations. It is a new facility, built to match the more historic town of New Buffalo. It is conveniently located and we walked most places in town. We stayed two nights in the Green room and enjoyed the entire visit. The Continental... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the Saffron room. It was beautiful, super clean and comfy. It was also a plus that it was walking distance to restaurants, many shops, and even the beach. The staff were super friendly and helpful and made our stay so nice! We will definitely be back!

Stayed one night during a motorcycle trip. Not normally a big fan of bed and breakfast places. But this was a very pleasant surprise. Rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Bed was a bit too soft, but that is probably just because of my back. Would stay again without hesitation.
