We have been staying at an Inn nearby for 24 years and when it burned down last year we had to look for a new place. Well we found a delightful place and enjoyed our stay at the Lakeside Inn. Our room was spacious and had a great view of Whitehall Lake. We did miss hearing the waves from Lake... More

Pros: Grounds are nice, staff is very courteous and helpful. Secluded location (if thats what youre after). Free Wifi. Cons: Tiny rooms, with doubles instead of queens. No coffee pot, no iron, no hair dryer in room. Tiny shower in a tiny bathroom. Everything needs a makeover from the old worn carpet to the cracked tiles and rusty pipes on... More

The Lakeside Inn Resort is like the quaint old resort featured in the movie Dirty Dancing (but smaller). There are no phones or WI-FI in the rooms. There is a basketball court, shuffle board, tennis court, and heated pool right outside the rooms. I was a little worried about our motel room not having A/C, but the nights were cool... More

The Lakeside Inn is a historic Inn on Whitehall Lake. It has a kind of old fashioned feel. Knotty pine paneling is nice, but the carpet is awful and should be replaced with hardwood or at least Pergo flooring. The staff is very nice and accomodating. This is a very family friendly place! Breakfast is sufficient, but on the busy... More

IF - you want to travel back in time to a place where you can drift in old world luxury, sleep deeply in AC rooms with the window cracked to hear the water, and not lock your doors. Play lawn games with your family on long grassy lakefronts, fish, sail, read under 100 yr old willows, then this is your... More

Lakeside Inn Resort is a family owned local business that is charming and home grown - NOT part of a commercialized chain. The staff are welcoming, the setting is beautiful and peaceful, and the Lodge is full of White Lake and Lakeside history. I have never had anything but perfect sleep and have left rested and re-energized. In short, I... More

Overpriced, tired, old. No place to set anything in bathroom, sheets wouldn't stay in mattress. Nice breakfast, staff, and view. Would not stay here again considering the price.
