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 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

We went on a quick getaway in the Thumb of Michigan. With no reservations, we dropped in and got a great room (#23). This is a "mom & pop" operation with motel rooms and cottages. The cottages have full kitchens, small dining tables, 2 beds and a fold out. We stayed on the second floor of the motel. Nice sunset... More

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.
