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

Thank you so very much for your review and for the multiple return visits. We are very pleased to hear that you found your stay with us relaxing and low stress. Our small size makes it easier to maintain a quieter and more easy-going atmosphere. Also, the building itself looks and feels more like a home which makes it a... 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. For starters, the Inn is immaculate. It couldn't be more inviting. Everything was clean and tidy. As charming as it is from the outside, it was even... More

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 River Birch that we planted along the street have grown like crazy to the point where you can hardly see the front of the building... More

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.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and thank you so very much for the review. We receive many positive comments about our location. Most guests really appreciate the short walk to pretty much everything they need while staying in New Buffalo. I especially encourage guests to take the short walk to the beach to catch one of our fantastic... More

I took my fiance to the Lake Country Inn for a surprise birthday trip. The inn was beautiful and the staff were great. We stayed in the blue room which is on the first floor near the back of the inn. I would have liked to have one of the rooms with a balcony or patio, but the blue room... More

Thank you very much for the review. It was great having you stay with us. This summer has been a bit cooler than normal with plenty of rain. As a result, the plantings at our property have really thrived. I will say that I don't think the grounds have ever looked better. Really appreciate you staying with us. Hope to... More

The Inn provides many, if not most of the features you get from large hotel chains but with a great B&B feel. The rooms are nicely set up and decorated and the location is nicely set back from the main drag in town. if you want to stay in a place that is a little different from your run of... More

We had a great visit here for our wedding anniversary. Stayed in the saffron room with a private balcony, room was beautifully decorated and clean. Staff was super friendly too. Much better value on a weeknight. Easy walk to everything in town.

Very happy your stay went well and thank you for the review. The Saffron room with balcony is a favorite especially during the summer. We also have a large rear deck area, patio area, and free standing community room for all guests to use. Rates are lower midweek and off season. Specific rates can be found on our home page....

We just returned from a memorable 2 night stay at the Lake Country Inn. It is worthy of the excellent reviews! Its location is ideal for walking to restaurants, shops, and the harbor and beaches.
