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

Thank you so much for the review and for staying with us. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. One advantage of being a small property is that guests feel more like they are staying at a nice home and that usually makes it easier to relax. Also, you never feel overwhelmed by things being too busy or... 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....

Lake Country Inn exceeded our expectations! My husband & I travel each summer to spend time with his brother and sister in law.

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. The rooms are extraordinarily clean and beautifully painted and furnished. Our bed (and bedding) was by Ralph Lauren, and I appreciated that luxury. The morning... More

We very much appreciate your review – – really enjoyed the very clever title. Our goal is that guests feel like they are staying at a friend's home when they visit New Buffalo. Actually, the whole idea of owning the property evolved from the fact that we have been hosting family and friends at our private house in the area... More

My wife and I just celebrated our 1st. wedding anniversary at the Lake Country Inn. We spent two nights in the Saffron room, it was very clean and the bed was amazing. Loved the balcony and the shower also. Could use a little bit bigger tv in the room but that is my only suggestion. The staff was AMAZING! Great... More

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
