The property is pristine and charming. Wonderful beach front location, beautiful landscaping. The room immaculate, great water pressure, refrigerator in room, extra towels on request. Owners were friendly and hospitable right down to the fresh brewed cup of coffee in the morning. Would definitely go back.

We've stayed at a few places in Pt. Austin & this far exceeds all others. Located on the water, quick walk to the Pier. Enjoy spectacular sunsets while seated in the manicured courtyard or Gazebo. BBQ on the gas & charcoal grills on the grounds. With a pool & beach access, larger cottages would be great for families. There have... More

Decided to take a spontaneous road trip to Michigan's thumb area. After a lot if searching for lodging, found Lake Vista Resort and glad we stayed there. The place is right on the beach of Lake Huron. The room was spotless albeit small. There is no coffee in the rooms but you can get coffee in the office. The owners... More

Ron and Mary do a great job of maintaining the property. Many of the rooms are updated and very clean. The grounds are well kept with lots of foliage. An added feature is the very large heated pool that is at the waters edge.

Took my wife away for a weekend, and figured I'd try out The Lake Vista Resort. There are rooms, but, This is THE room with a view. We had the 2nd floor suite, and loved it. A 180 degree view of the lake, and the room was well furnished. Great stay, and a very nice visit.

This is a wonderful place to go for a week or weekend. Everything is very well maintained. The courtyard is beautiful. The cottage had dishes and silverware to use. My only minor complaint would be that the beds were extra firm and the towels were a bit scratchy. For the cost I would expect a little better quality, however, I... More

Our family occupied 33 of the possible 35 rooms available on property including cabins, motel rooms and efficiencies. This was just a great choice for our family reunion retreat. The owners were very friendly, the rooms were kept clean, but are small. Recommend you bring your own pillows and towels. Also a coffee pot. There is plenty of outdoor seating... More

Nice alternative to chain hotels. Family owned and operated. Great location to the pier. Would reserve the cabin facing the water next time just for the experience. Very clean! Price was a little high.

Finding decent accommodations in the thumb area can be a challenge. The Lake Vista Resort was clean and right on the water. It had a nice pool overlooking the beach. Compared to other places is the area, this one's a gem.

Clean, but skimpy on towels and other amenities. Only lake view was out side window. The plastic mattress cover made sleeping almost impossible. We kept waking each other up. Enjoyed a great dinner at the Bank.
