My husband and I wanted a quick getaway to celebrate our birthdays. Lake Shore Resort was the perfect venue. Beautiful views, spectacular sunsets, gorgeous grounds and lovely people. Service was excellent and we loved the staff. Next year we're staying longer than 3 days!! Wasn't nearly long enough to do everything we wanted. Perfect location to reconnect with your special...

You can view the lake at breakfast! You can walk down steps to various decks with seating and enjoy the lake, or continue to the private beach where the lounge chairs and umbrellas all set up for you. They have places to sit to watch the most incredible sunsets and finish the night at the heated pool or fire pits!... More

My wife and I just returned from a short get away at Lake Shore Resort. This was our sixth year to stay here and will continue to make it an annual stop. Out of curiousity I decided to check this site to see what others thought. I'm typically not one to post on these types of sites but do find... More

Wonderful resort!! Amazing location on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Private beach (lots of stairs but worth the steps) with lounge chairs/tables with umbrellas, kayaks to paddle along the shoreline, nice swimming pool, bikes and hiking trails. Quiet, peaceful and geared towards adults (how refreshing to not see kids running around out-of-control). The rooms vary depending on the wing. I... More

Stayed here for the second time. The location can't be beat. Rooms are simple and clean. The grounds are lovely. Walk across the street and down to the lake. Kayaks and bike available for guest use. Pool is a wonderful place to swim or lounge. The staff are super sweet and helpful. Will definitely be back again.

This hotel is in a perfect location, right across the road from a private beach (warning: many stairs down, if you're less mobile). The road dead-ends shortly past the hotel which makes it peaceful for walking or biking (we saw more walkers/bikers than cars, each morning). Excellent breakfast - although "continental" may suggest danish and coffee, they also had cereal,... More

My 7 months pregnant wife and I planned to take a romantic "babymoon" and pinpointed the Saugatuck/Douglas area given that it a) didn't require hopping on a plane and b) was less than a 3 hour drive from Chicago. She came across this spot and booked it. First the good. There are quite a few positives. Location-wise, this hotel sits... More

Not sure where 'voxlucis' from Oak Park stayed? but this resort is fabulous! And while I agree the gentleman at the desk could use a lesson on how to talk to guests, he detracted only slightly from an overall positive experience. All of the other folks who work there were very friendly and went out of their way to make... More
