Thanks so much for our first 2015 review. We are really happy that you enjoyed your visit with us.

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.

Thank you; we really appreciate the review and are very pleased you enjoyed your stay. Every room has different furniture and colors. In addition, all the rooms have lots of natural light and this is especially true at the front of the building where rooms have sliding doors onto porches or balconies. We have good pictures of all the rooms... More

The Inn and rooms were impeccably clean. We stayed in the Aqua room and really enjoyed that. The bathroom spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The grounds and common areas were very well kept and inviting. We would have liked a room with refrigerator (some others had that) but had no problem using the small one in the kitchen.... More

My husband and I stayed here in the Tower Suite for two nights - Friday and Saturday, the weekend after Labor Day. The room was comfy, spacious and probably the cleanest hotel/inn room in which I've ever stayed. We were greeted by Joyce on Friday afternoon who showed us our room and gave us a tour of the inn.

When we contacted Lake Country Inn upon arriving in New Buffalo, the owner greeted us enthusiastically and showed us which rooms were available. They were all immaculately clean and luxuriously decorated. We chose the Green Room and loved the comfy chaise-type chair with the cozy throw. Our bathroom was large, spotless and had a beautiful tiled shower. The Inn provides... More

This summer marked our third year at Lake Country Inn and our second in the 'Orange Room'. The Orange Room provides a front balcony where one can read and/or watch the slow and easy world walk by. Lake Country Inn is not a high-impact, amenities-filled place. It is a get-away from the world of pace and speed, yet still has... More

I want to start by stating that I can not remember writing a review for much of anything, but feel compelled to share the wonderful experience we had at the Lake Country Inn.

Thanks so very much for the review Chris. Really glad you enjoyed staying in the Tower suite. The balconies and porches at the front of the building are really popular in the warmer months.

The rooms are comfortable, the staff is helpful and friendly, there is free on site parking and the location is close to the lake and a block from many restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay there again. Be sure to make a reservation in advance - they do sell out.
