Definitely a clean motel and well maintained. The outside pool is heated and close to the rooms. Great location to the breakwater and beach. City park is near by and so are places to eat. All within walking distance. Somewhat pricey compared to other motels providing free breakfast. We still would stay here again for the location and quaint town.... More

We love Port Austin and would travel there for the day often since we only live about 90 minutes away. This time we decided to stay a few nights. Found this place online and it exceeded our expectations. Very clean, grounds are absolutely beautiful, and well manicured. Someone there has a green thumb! Gazebo's, brick pavers made it so inviting.... More

We really liked the Lake Vista Resort. It was very clean and the grounds were beautiful. The heated pool hit the spot. So relaxing. Only 2 1/2 hours from home made this an ideal long weekend trip. We definitely will return.

Heated pools and decks for viewing the gorgeous sunsets. The owners and staff are always working hard and very friendly. Top notch! Kooky Golf is just down the road and is... More

It was our first family vacation and it was perfect. I am a stickler for cleanliness and this place, the staff, the owners, the cottage, the whole entire week was outstanding. Owner Ron is one funny fella. The entire family was professional and kind. The pool was heated. A wonderful location. I am so glad to have met them. We... More

Ron and Mary are terrific hosts. The place has wonderful gardens and fountains and gazebo's. The room (#16 lake view) was very comfortable and all my expectations were exceeded. Sunsets are incredible as is the show of stars at night. Lake Vista has a great history in Port Austin, and I expect to return next summer. When you stroll the... More

Very clean room. Bed is pretty hard but not bad for one night. No shampoo is strange because it wasn't very inexpensive. Owners were not very friendly. It's on the water but doesn't have beach access. We were told there was a fire pit but it is a metal stand ,you purchase wood from the resort, and there is no... More

the mattress is a 5 star serta mattress, sorry it was to firm for you. we have a card in each room stating that if you are not satisfied to please come to the office. We provide shampoo as needed, we are a environmentally friendly resort. chairs are all over the resort and could have been used around the fire-pit.... More

The perfect hotel for a couple. If you have a family their cabins are perfect. Super clean and well priced. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful. Heated pool over looking Lake Huron was also very clean. Family run staff were all very friendly. Beautiful views of Lake Huron! The only reason I did not give 5 stars, I found the... More
