We've enjoyed Lakeside twice a year since our first visit in late Sept 2005. Upon arriving, you can't help but feel relaxed. We stayed again this August 2011. It’s a handy easy weekend getaway spot, only 3-4 hours from the Indy area. Wonderful, quiet private beach (if you don't mind many steps down and up) wonderful sunsets can be memorable. The staff is polite and very attentive from the moment you check in. Just so you know: This is not a luxury hotel (although I must say the beds are extremely comfortable). They are celebrating their 50th year this year. Since it is a vintage hotel, you won't find fancy bath fixtures and gleaming marble but It is always very clean and the only AAA motel in the area. We hope the owners continue to make improvements and keep up with maintaining this wonderful lakeside escape. We like coming and seeing what improvements have been done since our last stay. We'll keep coming for sure! It's nice in the winter also, if you enjoy snow (skiing and snowmobiling).
