This is a nice little Hotel/B&B near the beach. We stayed in the orange room and found it well kept and clean. The bed was a bit on the soft side but the pillow a bit to hard so I didn't get a good night's sleep. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this.

Our sincere thanks for staying with us and for the review. We have memory foam or memory foam with gel mattresses in all of our rooms. In general these are very popular; however, they do feel soft when you sit on the edge as they do not have the support along the edge that traditional mattresses have. I will also... More

High end furnishings and high end constructed. Not only amazing furnishings, but the ultimate quality of bath tile, plumbing fixtures, and bedding. Toni the attendant is very sweet. The resident cat is humanely taken care of and consideration for guests with allergies so cat stays outside. However the fact they reach out to an animal in need is iceing on... More

Thank you so much for your review. We a very happy you enjoyed your stay. Our resident cat really enjoys the property also. Basically, it likes to watch people and hang-out around the back porch area only. Our cat is never inside the building. Also, the cat is very, very skittish around strangers, and I have rarely seen it let... More

I love this place! The rooms are all beautiful, we stayed in the Saffron Room which has everything...walk in shower, balcony and a pleasing color pallet. Other guests and staff were all friendly and respectful of being in an inn instead of a busy, noisy hotel. This is an excellent transition from hotel to bed and breakfast if you're having... More

We loved having you stay with us! Lots of people have never tried staying at a small property, so it was great to hear that your spouse enjoyed the experience. It is just more relaxing when you feel like you are staying at a very well kept and beautiful home. Plus, but only if you want to, you have the... More

We having nothing but praise for this hotel, excellent location, nothing too much trouble for the owners, room was lovely (Saffron), and taking breakfast on the balcony was wonderful. We had read an earlier review about pillows being hard and my wife asked for a softer one and this was delivered within minutes.

This is a lovely place in a great location. Beach not far away, shopping close and a nice restaurant across the street! Met owner and he was very nice, had a nice conversation with him. You can tell he loves the area and is very knowledgeable and helpful! The staff was so friendly! Only drawback was that the air conditioning... More

Thank you so much for the review and for staying with us. Harbor Country is a wonderful area. The summer sunsets over Lake Michigan can be mesmerizing ( see our Facebook page for lots of examples ). Each room has its own thermostat. This works great for the individual rooms, but sometimes the hallways and kitchen area get a bit... More

This was a very nice place to stay - very homey, spacious rooms. They had every little item you could need - hair dryer, alarm clock, makeup wipes, a cuddly blanket. The location was great - a 10 minute walk to the beach, a one to five minute walk to area restaurants. The breakfast was light but ample - bagels,... More

Really appreciate your review, and thank you for staying with us. In response to a prior reviewer who did not find their pillows comfortable, we have stocked the property with multiple different types of pillows. From your review, it sounds like we need to do a better job making sure guests are aware of our " pillow selection" so they... More

What a great find! I had a hard time finding a room in New Buffalo in the summer (imagine that!) and stumbled across this place online. I am so glad that I did. Our room was $165 (week day) and I wasn’t sure what to expect for that price….but it was awesome. We were met in the kitchen and shown,... More

We have been staying at the Lake Country Inn since it opened years back as The White Chapel Inn.

When guests checked-in for their three night stay, they requested that the sleeper sofa be made up in their room. As this would now allow for three people to stay in the room and add an additional $40/night charge, our staff asked if occupancy for the room was now three instead of the double occupancy that was reserved.

Everything you want in a bed and breakfast. The rooms were great as was the service. The porch outside the bedroom was perfect for relaxing or eating breakfast in the morning. We're definitely going back.

Very much appreciate your review. The Yellow, Orange, Saffron, and Tower rooms all have great private porches that are really popular in the summer. There is a link on our Facebook page to a recent video interview that includes some shots of the porches. Really happy that you enjoyed your visit with us. Hope you can come back soon. More
