We stayed a couple nights in October. This place is perfect for a getaway; clean, comfortable and quiet. The owner, Rich, is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We loved the hot tub. Location is set back, we will be returning next year! Thank you Coachlite for the great stay!

Located near the main area of Sister Bay, however off the road into the "woods" for a really nice tranquil place. The landscaping is beautiful. We had a spacious room that was clean and quiet for a good nights sleep. There was a refridge and free wifi. I was on a motorcycle trip circling Lake Michigan and stopped here fro... More

This is a nicely landscaped inn near Sisters Bay. The room was adequate but could be updated, especially the poor lock on the door. It also had a dehumidifier running continously but there was still a slight mustiness essence in the air. We appreciated the microwave, small refrigerator and dvd player (front desk has free DVD's for guests use) but... More

Dear Deb, thank you for your feedback and kind words. We are sorry the door lock broke during your visit but I was happy the locksmith replaced it so quickly. While we do have dehumidifiers in every first floor room, they are mainly used while the rooms are vacant. Being surrounded by water we try to help control the humidity... More

Stayed in a classic room with two double beds. The rooms were very clean and staff very accommodating. The breakfast was basic but with all of the great restaurants around we went out for breakfast every morning. Peaceful and very quiet. We never heard our neighbors. I would recommend this place.

The grounds of the Inn were beautiful! The room was quiet and clean. The room was small and could use some upgrading (1960s look to the room).

The staff was very helpful and friendly answering all our questions about the area. The rooms are clean and very well maintained. The hot tub, fire pit and breakfast were better then most places offer. We will be back and can't wait to get back to paradise.
