“We're going back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Wife and I had a special road trip weekend and we were looking for an out of the way place that was romantic and classy. Lighthouse Lodge was it. Going off recommendations from other Trip Advisor reviews I booked our short stay. Mike and Bonnie were great hosts. We arrived late at night, but they had made sure we could get into the rec area and our room. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and it was as advertised. Very cozy. Comfortable bed, and this is a big deal for us because we hate hotel beds, but this was very comfortable. Since it was already dark we couldn't see the elegant view from our room until the morning. Gorgeous view of the lake and the lighthouse.

I am partial to my own cooking, but Bonnie's breakfast was wonderful. Pancakes, eggs, bacon, fresh fruit and her own homemade syrups and flavored butters as well. Just delicious.

We were there less than 12 hours, but have already talked about having our family reunion there next fall.

If you want an out of the way place that offers beautiful scenery, FAMILY environment and yet all the amenities of home...Mike and Bonnie have the place for you.

We recently spent a 4 day weekend, which was our second time staying at the Lighthouse Lodge B&B. Mike and Bonnie are excellent hosts. Breakfasts are always excellent, with a unique variety of offerings. We've stayed in the Honeymoon Suite, and the Hawaiian Suite. Both offered great views, and were comfortable rooms.

We live an hour away from Mike and Bonnies B&B, but it felt like a world away.. My wife of ten years and I spent the weekend in the Honeymoon Suite and had an amazing time. Beautiful views, comfortable rooms, great property and surrounding area.. The most comfortable place we've ever stayed next to our home.. A very pleasant experience, first on our list of recommendations..

Wonderful hosts, Bonnie is a fantastic cook. We were able to stay in the cottage by the lake with our standard poodle. Everything was new and spotless, we had a very pleasant stay. The Lodge is a bit off the beaten path but worth the ride.

This is a real gem off the normal tourist track. Most of the visitors are from within a 2-3 hour radius, typically Chicago. This B & B and Lake has to be one of Indiana's best kept secrets.
Mike and Bonnie were wonderful hosts and Bonnie cooked us a real homestyle breakfast which was as good as any I have had. The facilities are very relaxing and we spent a bit more to get the Honeymoon suite which had amazing views. The bed was top notch and It had the biggest Jacuzzi bath I have ever seen. All in all the best accommodation we stayed in on our recent 2 week trip to USA.
Many thanks to Mike and Bonnie.

Room Tip: Cabins for families or romantic rooms are all good. Just choose based on your budget.

Bonnie and Mike are the sweetest most accommodating couple we have ever met. The lighthouse lodge is a great location with things to do for adults and children. It's minutes from monticello. All rooms and cabins have great views of the lake. We felt like we were family. We most definitely will be staying there in the future. Thank you Bonnie and Mike.

From the first phone call, we were treated with kindness and respect. Mike and Bonnie were so accomodating and made us feel like we were home. The facilities are wonderful and every need was met. Mike helped us carry our over nights bags to the room and even called us by name the following morning when we arrived for breakfast. We hope to return for another overnight stay next year.
