No expense was spared in remodeling this oasis in a Michigan beach community; the rooms are named for colors that the decorator used to their full extent. More importantly, however, is the cleanliness and soft towels and nice amenities. Add to that very hospitable owners and staff combined with a very nice continental breakfast you have a great place to... More

My husband and I were interested in checking out Lake Michigan from the Michigan shore. New Buffalo was so easily accessible so we headed to Lake Country Inn based on a recommendation from friends. The Inn was the absolute perfect respite for a birthday weekend. We were close to the beach, downtown shopping and dining. And more importantly, the Inn... More

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your visit to New Buffalo. Thank you so much for your review and for staying with us. While our property is only a one hour drive from downtown Chicago, you will feel like you have escaped to a place much farther away. The small town atmosphere and our beautiful shoreline really help you... More

Great location in New Buffalo. Friendly staff and well appointed rooms that have room to move around. The rooms are beautifully appointed with a nice bathroom with good quality toiletries. We were in transit to Wisconsin and stayed the night. They had good recommendations for dining - dinner and breakfast. They have a nice continental breakfast but we opted for... More

We really appreciate your staying with us and thanks so much for the review. Our building was constructed in 2005 so all the systems are current. Also, the property was specifically built to be an Inn so there is lots of extra sound proofing. Plus, there are now worries about losing power to the building during one of our summer... More

First time overnighting in New Buffalo, as we usually make it a day trip. Inn is conveniently located walking distance to restaurants & shops. We drove to beach ($10 parking per day) because of the chairs & coolers we were carrying, . We were in the orange room, comfortable bed, nice walk in shower. Because we were on the 1st... More

This was a great place to stay. Very clean, very nice service, and great rooms. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. You can walk anywhere in town. We had the saffron room which came with a balcony which was great.

Thanks so very much for staying with us and for your review. Our location is definitely one of our properties strong points. You really don't need to use your car after you check in. So after taking in a fantastic Lake Michigan sunset, it is just a short stroll back to your comfy room or to one of our great... More

My fiancé and I stayed here for 2 nights to chill. The Inn was beautiful and so clean. Lovely balcony with chairs and table we used to enjoy a few gins at sunset. Huge shower for 2 and 4 poster bed. The only downside was breakfast, bagels, yoghurt, coffee, juices available...would have loved some eggs or something more filling! If... More

Thanks so much for staying with us and for your review.

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.

Really enjoyed meeting and talking with you both. Thank you so much for the review and for staying with us. One advantage of a small property is the opportunity to actually meet your guests.
