A group of 7 couples went up to Lake Country Inn for three days/2 nights and it was "heavenly" The Inn is nothing short of the pictures on the website and there was definitely no one disappointed with the accomodations. The location is perfect for a short get-away and so much to do if you want to gamble, shop, go... More

My wife and I just returned from a weekend in New Buffalo, MI, where we have been at least 10 times over the last 13 years. This was the first time we stayed at the Lake Country Inn and this will be the place we will stay in the future. I can't say enough about this inn. It is likely... More

All of us at Lake Country Inn very much appreciate your review. It really was a great summer weekend in New Buffalo and thanks for being a part of it. One thing that is nice about staying at a smaller property is that you have the chance, if you want, of meeting other guests. We have had the pleasure of... More

Decided to come to New Buffalo and choose to stay at this wonderful Inn. The pictures online were very accurate and we were very pleased by our experience. Inn keepers are very nice, coffe and breakfast ready and waiting and a great back deck area to hang out. Very close to town and the beach, would highly recommend this Inn!

We spent two nights at the Lake Country Inn as a little mid-week escape. The inn is a beautiful property in a great location for exploring New Buffalo and the surrounding area. It is only one block off the main street and has its own parking lot which made it very convenient for walking to the nearby restaurants and shopping.... More

Thank you for your review. July is peak porch time at our property, and we are very glad you were able to enjoy some time on one this summer. Appreciate the mention of the staff also as they do work really hard. We will be getting some clocks for the rooms-- hope we can find some that will make this... More

Got an invitation for a family wedding in the area and began a search for the best place to stay. This turned out to be a great choice. We stayed for two nights in the red room, which was REALLY red, but impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable, the view out of the windows was pleasant... More

We really appreciate your review and thanks. So glad your stay with us was relaxing and fun. All of the rooms are very colorful-- especially the red room. Not having to use your car really helps guests relax at our central New Buffalo location---- short walk to some of the best sunsets on the planet. More

I stayed at the inn for two nights before heading down to gradute school at Notre Dame, just to catch my breath. You know ou picked a good place to go when you can see the lake from the only stoplight in town. The inn is beautiful, the private parking great, the Green Room was very comfy, and the porch...

Thank you for the review and mentioning your Notre Dame connection. As we are about 40 minutes for campus, you can enjoy " a place at the lake " and still access the campus fairly easily. Also, our off season rates could make this a good place to study or take a break from class. Hope you can come again... More

If you go to New Buffalo for a visit this is the place to stay. Mark and Hope and the rest of the staff are excellent hosts. We booked 2 rooms and both were just great. One of them was the Saffron and the other was the Green. The Saffron had a balcony that overlooked the street and the restaurant... More

You are welcome! We all enjoyed having you stay with us. The balconies off the Tower and Saffron rooms are really popular. Along with our porches, the balconies give you a great place to sit with a glass of wine and watch a hot, summer night drift by. Hope to see your smiling faces again soon. More

My friend and I stayed here over the weekend and it honestly pained me to turn in my key at the end of our stay. We stayed in the orange room, which has it's own private veranda.

We really appreciate your review and thanks. Noted your suggestion about outside blankets. Probably won't need them this weekend as it looks like we will be back in the 90's. Lake Michigan water temps will be comfortable for swimming early this year. Hope we can give you another room key soon. More

We booked a two night stay at the Lake Country Inn along with two other couples over Memorial weekend. We arrived early, and they allowed us to check in since the room was available.

Thanks so much for your review. I am sure it will help future guests know what to expect from our property prior to a visit. We tracked down a rouge switch in the lower level as the cause of the AC issue. Also, while it looks older, the building was built new in 2005 and that is why it has... More
