We stayed at the Lake Country Inn in August. We had the Red Room, which was very comfortable and in new condition. There was a separate building with couches for reading or playing games, and also wide porches with chairs for lounging. Our room opened directly to the outside, so it felt very private. The Inn is on a quiet... More

Thanks you so very much for your review. Rising lake levels have caused a lot of erosion along our shoreline recently. Fortunately, the New Buffalo Beach is still in good shape although smaller than it was several years ago. After Labor Day the beach activity drops off dramatically on the weekends and especially during midweek. So during September you can... More

We checked into the Lake Country Inn on Tues. 29 Sept., We were met by the Inn's owner and checked in. While speaking with her we mentioned that we wanted to go to a certain restaurant and needed directions. She insisted that she should drive us and she did!

An old style in that has been built recently. This is our second year staying at the inn mid-week in late August and have loved it. The inn was not full but we never heard the other guests and rarely saw them. The inn is in walking distance to several good restaurants and after dinner we either walked to the... More

My friend and I really enjoyed the yellow room. There is a wonderful front porch for sitting and chatting and enjoying a cup of coffee. The yellow room has one main room with a large sleigh bed and another smaller room with a smaller pull-out. They had this smaller bed made up for us ahead of time. This room receives... More

We enjoyed the Inn very much. We chose the Orange room which was very pretty! The only issue was that there was a lot of street noise from restaurant across the street but that's hardly the inn's fault. We loved the patio and the grounds were gorgeous! Very nice boutique hotel! Close to beach!

Thanks so much for staying with us and for your review. Our Orange and Yellow rooms both have great first floor porches. Our Tower and Saffron rooms likewise have wonderful balconies that are perfect summer hangout spots. And the beach is the place for epic sunsets over the Chicago skyline. Hope we see you back soon.

I looked for a place for a short break and found it difficult to find somewhere for the dates I was looking for. Lake Country Inn came up but was my only option, so I was a little concerned as sometimes that is because people are avoiding the place! Nothing could have been further from the truth, what a great... More

Thank you so much for your review. Occasionally during the summer we have a cancelation that results in a last minute weekend vacancy. Otherwise our summer and early fall weekends are typically filled well in advance. Starting in late August the midweek will really start to slow down so there are usually last minute rooms available. Midweek in September is... More

We stayed here with 2 other couples for a wine weekend. We could not have been more pleased. The owner and staff were so kind, courteous and helpful. The Inn and rooms were immaculate. The location is perfect, central to the main street. The best part was the separate building filled with games, books, couches and a fireplace. It is... More
