The room was a bit small for the price (we stayed on the bottom floor), but the room and grounds were very well maintained. The only two things that keep it from being 5 stars is they do put the drinking glasses under the sink (unwrapped) which is where they also store the toilet brush. Gross! One of the two... More

My husband and I were on a tour of the "thumb" of Michigan and needed a room for the night. We decided to check out the Lake Vista Resort. The buildings were surrounded by beautiful gardens, and guests can enjoy sitting outside in one of several gazebos. There is also a pool and a deck overlooking Lake Huron. The resort... More

We loved this place, the rooms were clean, the property well landscaped and maintained and the owners are great! Easy to walk to the main drag and views are spectacular. Kooky golf was a quick walk down the street and was a blast! This is a great little town.

1st off from other reviews I have read saying they don't give you soap or drinking glasses they give you both. They give you two bars of soap and a soap dispenser. The drinking glass can be found under the sink where you can also find a plunger in a jug, so not sure anyone would want to use them... More

I'm only here for one night and there is not a name brand hotel around so I checked this place out and I absolutely loved it. The price was very good it was going to be appx $90 for a room but I wanted a lakeside room so it was appx $120. Worth every dime. Mind you this is still... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. The reason the TV is in the bedroom is because, when it used to be in the sunroom, we got a lot of suggestions to move it to the bedroom area. Cant wait to see you again. More

We had a great view of the lake and lighthouse. Grounds were nice but it was early so we couldn't enjoy them fully. Room was nice. Mattresses weren't very comfortable. We would stay here again. Room had a microwave and mini fridge which are very nice to have.

It was a decent stay. Was there for a family reunion so we took up the whole place. The owners were strange, my mom and best friends mom (both married) were hit on by the male owner. The "beach" located in the resort is not a beach at all, its a small, dirty strip of land behind the pool. The... More

What a beautiful and peaceful setting! Our room was clean and well maintained. The location was great! Able to walk to town, walk the beach, putt putt nearby and a beautiful park system with hiking trails a short drive. The sunsets were absolutely beautiful. Area was very quiet even being close to town! And if you get the chance don't... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was a little small, with a double bed, but had a nice little table and chair set which would have been handy for eating in the room. Loved the colors and décor, with the lounge chairs outside. Everything was very clean and well taken care of. One note, though, if you're used to... More
