Great times at the Lake Country Inn! We arrived on a Friday and stayed in the Saffron room (SW corner of the property, 2nd floor, treetop view). The staff was courteous, the breakfast food was nice (continental breakfast) and the neighborhood is wonderful. My wife --the birthday girl-- loved it as well. We both loved sitting on the porch, drinking... More

So happy the birthday celebration went well. We really appreciate your review also. Thanks for mentioning the nearby Amtrak platform. There are multiple inbound and outbound trains every day connecting New Buffalo to Chicago. So if you're from the city you can get to Buffalo in a little over an hour. While you are staying with us you don't need... More

We were impressed with the cleanliness and overall ambience of the Lake Country Inn. We had 2 rooms, the Orange Room and the Blue Room, both on the first floor. Very comfortable beds. They had made the detached garage into a family/gathering room that made a great place to play board games. The covered porches were a nice place to... More

We very much appreciate your review and thank you for choosing us. Visiting the local vineyards and wineries is by far one of the most popular activities with our guests. There are multiple excellent wineries within a 20 to 30 minute drive from our property. Our favorites include Tabor Hill, Lemon Creek, Gravity, and Round Barn. Many of the vineyards... More

My husband and I stayed at Lake Country Inn for four nights and it was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. It was so clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable.

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary a few weeks ago and stayed at the Lake Country Inn. I can't stop thinking about this place! It was clean beyond my belief and the staff was genuinely friendly! We truly enjoyed our stay and we can't wait to go back!

We loved our stay at the Lake Country Inn. For starters the place was spotless. I don't know if I have ever stayed someplace so clean. Check in was simple and fast. All employees were friendly and informative. We stayed in the Orchid room which was large and the bathroom was beautiful. They have a fridge in the kitchen for... More

A friend and I stayed a night at the Lake Country Inn recently and really loved it. The accommodations were fantastic - a big room with a private porch, a clean, modern bathroom.

My husband and I stayed at the Lake Country Inn for a weekend. It is a very nice and well-appointed facility in a great location. The first night we were the only ones in the Inn. Very quiet. The second night the Inn was full and there were some noisy, drunken guests. Their outbursts were short lived, thankfully. Nice, clean... More

Thank you so much for the review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. With the fairly cool summer temps so far, the Harbor Country area has been somewhat less busy this year compared to the past several summers. As a result, we still have quite a few midweek vacancies for July and August. While we... More

My fiance and I decided to get out of Chicago for a weekend and ended up coming to the Lake Country Inn. When we first checked in there was someone waiting to help us and answer any questions we had.
