We stayed here with two other couples for a wine weekend. We've been to New Buffalo many times and never knew this knave existed. What a find! Upon reservation you choose your own room. There isn't a room that's less adorable than the next. We stayed in the Orchid, our friends in the aquamarine & blue room. All were very... More

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you so much for your review. As already you know, the tiny little village of New Buffalo (population of only 1700), is a great place to visit and relax. The fall is pretty quiet, but there are still lots of great things to do and lots of great... More

My husband and I stayed at Lake Country Inn the weekend of 10/23-10/26. We came to Michigan to have a weekend getaway. We wanted to try something different than a hotel, so we decided on a bed and breakfast. I was worried at first because I thought we wouldn’t have enough privacy, or that it would be noisy from others... More

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your review. I really appreciate the time you took and the details you included in your review. Our property was built in 2005 specifically to be an inn. Therefore, there are additional construction features in the building to help keep things quiet such as extra sound deadening insulation, sound strips... More

We stayed here last weekend & what a cute Inn! Recently updated, clean, cute rooms in heart of New Buffalo. This area is in heart of wine country & there are many great wineries near. Wonderful weekend! Located across from very good restaurant called Brewster's. Definitely recommend all of it for a fun weekend.

We recently stayed two nights at this inn and had a great time! We stayed in the Blue Room and the color was so soothing and perfect. There were a lot of windows, which was nice. The only downside was there was an access path from the front of the hotel to the back entrance that went right outside our... More

Great location. We stepped out the door, crossed the street and enjoyed a lovely dinner in the courtyard of the Italian restaurant (can't remember name). Then we strolled to the marina at sunset. Next morning we walked around the corner to the delightful shopping area. The property itself was perfect. We enjoyed breakfast on our private porch. Everything is sparkling... More

This room was like the "ugly stepchild" of what otherwise is probably a very nice place. The entrance is from the outside - so a little motel-like in feeling, which was not what I was anticipating. There should be some kind of reference on the website about this. The room was small, but clean, well appointed - "cozy" as they... More

If you've read the other tripadvisor reviews on Lake Country, you can see there is a lot to like about the inn: attractively furnished, well maintained, and clean rooms; centrally located and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and the beach. I am, however, short of going beyond the very good rating and matching the several excellent tripadvisor ratings. I... More

We really appreciate your review and thank you for staying with us. We're very glad you enjoyed your stay. Like all popular beach resort areas, our little village does get congested downtown during a beautiful, hot summer weekend. However, since New Buffalo is so small––population of only 1700 with only one traffic light––I would say our congestion is relatively minimal... More
