We've been coming here for 20 years. One year we decided to do something different; we ended up taking a 2nd vacation back at Lake shore Resort--we missed it that much. Rooms are small but immaculately maintained (if you want to spend time in your room go elsewhere). The grounds are beautiful and extremely well maintained. Pool is great, but... More

We stayed 3 days in the middle of June. The motel is a little old but the rooms were clean and the staff friendly. Great morning breakfast. The view of the lake was great. Nice clean pool. Bikes for use. Their decking at the lake was wonderful. A top area with high bar stools to sit and enjoy the view... More

Stayed for a week with my daughter at this enchanting spot. It was a quiet residential area. The sunsets are beyond gorgeous. The lighted firepit warmed us while allowing us to enjoy the beautiful star lit skies. Though the rooms are a little dated, my daughter and I absolutely love it here. Every evening, we grilled out and just enjoyed... More

Nicest people ever running this place. When I made reservations, the lady on phone was so patient and helpful to me. And when I arrived, Jennifer and Michelle were both soooo nice. The guy that checked us out was also very nice. I could tell he really cared that we had a nice time. You know how someone might say... More

I was looking for a calm, sort of off the grid place to just unwind for 3 glorious days, do some yoga and meditation, know no one, catch up on reading and just be with my thoughts. I was sort of nervous booking at an extremely small place like this with its own following. Would I feel out of place... More

The view: Fabulous! This place has the peace and beauty like no other! The friendly helpful staff is outstanding! The beach walks at sunset were off the hook! To sit with such a beautiful view every morning at breakfast was a great way to start a day of lounging or exploring. Our room was comfortable and as we had no... More

The view is gorgeous; the private lake is great; the grounds are manicured. If you want to hang out and look at the lake, bring food for the refrigerator--you have to drive to Saugatuck to get to restaurants. The interior of rooms needs updating: the AC unit is very old and takes forever to cool the room down. It's very... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Breathtaking view of Lake Michigan. Meticulous grounds. Rooms are very nice. There are many outdoor seating areas on the resort, all with a lake view, some are around fire pits. The resort is extremely well kept and attended to constantly. The morning dew on the chairs that were outside of our room was even wiped... More

As we approached our door, I noticed the door knob was so loose you could see through the gap--great entry for mosquitoes, etc. Inside, our room had an extremely musty smell; And, the toilet was leaking on the floor. I have asthma and am allergic to mold. In a very short time, I started having an asthma attack due to... More

We stayed here for the first time last week after many years of coming to Saugatuck. Now this is our go to place. We were lucky to go in low season so the rate was very reasonable. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and there are lots of places to sit and enjoy the scenery. We did not walk down to... More
