Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 18, 2012

All rooms are newly remodeled and clean. The beds are awesome. The four seasons room and yard are a nice bonus. Owners and staff are very friendly and courteous. Located in the heart of town - 5 minute walk to the beach. Nice continental breakfast and drinks in fridge available all day. Book early because this place fills up quickly!

Thank you so much for your review of Lake Country Inn. We appreciate your suggestion to reserve a room early as we are typically full most days during the summer and most weekends otherwise. That said, there are still lots of open rooms for this fall, and the fall is a beautiful time to visit the Harbor Country area. We are looking forward to having you as our guest again soon.

This is a wonderful little inn, just a block away from town and three blocks to the beach. We stayed in the yellow room, on the first floor with a little porch on the front where we could relax with the morning paper and coffee. Lovely furnishings, a refrigerator, nice-sized bathroom and everything was immaculate. Each morning there was a nice continental breakfast which you could eat inside or outside on the porch. There was also a little outdoor room with a fireplace and big overstuffed sofas, as well as an outdoor patio area. We spent hours outside on the patio enjoying the beautiful weather and setting. We will be back!

We really appreciate your review-- thank you. Our central location in the small village of New Buffalo puts our guests within walking distance of many activities and you really don't need a car while staying with us. In the yellow room, you can relax on your porch with a glass of wine while waiting for your table at Brewster's Italian Cafe across the street as their pagers cover our property. The Amtrak platform is also only one block away if you want to catch one of the three daily trains into Chicago. It was our pleasure having you stay with us, and we hope you can return soon..

Just spent two nights at the Lake Country Inn with six other couples. Everything about this Inn is perfect. Probably the cleanest place I've ever stayed . Every room was beautiful, as were the grounds. They have a really nice 4 seasons room which was great for us since we were such a big group. Also had room on the lawn to play bags, a patio with umbrella table and a beautiful porch with adirondack chairs. We drove to the 4 winds which took about 5 minutes. Not a bad walk to the beach and there was a really good restaurant right outside our door. The owners were so friendly and really made us feel as though the place was ours. I can't wait to go back. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone. Thanks Mark & Hope.

Room Tip: We had the saffron room which was on the second floor with a beautiful balcony, but you can't go...

A group of 7 couples went up to Lake Country Inn for three days/2 nights and it was "heavenly"
The Inn is nothing short of the pictures on the website and there was definitely no one disappointed with the accomodations. The location is perfect for a short get-away and so much to do if you want to gamble, shop, go to the beach, etc. I thank the owners, Hope and Mark and the whole staff for making us feel comfortable. This is a definite return location and would be a wonderful gift to give to adults of all ages. Thanks for taking such great care of our group.

Thanks so much for the review and for choosing Lake Country Inn for your getaway. Having your group stay with us really made our week. We are always glad to know that the pictures on our website are representative and help guests know what to expect from our property. The best picture this week would have been all the great smiles that your wonderful group shared with everyone. Really hope you all can return.

My wife and I just returned from a weekend in New Buffalo, MI, where we have been at least 10 times over the last 13 years. This was the first time we stayed at the Lake Country Inn and this will be the place we will stay in the future. I can't say enough about this inn. It is likely the cleanest hotel or inn at which I've ever stayed. The decor and furnishings are beautiful (100% Koehler in the baths). The beds are excellent - I slept great and that's unusual at a hotel or inn or B&B. All of the rooms on the front of the inn have these great balconies with adirondack chairs and a table where you can sip coffee and enjoy the morning or any other part of the day for that matter. There is a wonderful back porch with more adirondack chairs also where you can congregate and meet other visitors. They also lent us beach chairs and towels for our day at the beach. All in all, a fantastic place to stay that is close to the marina, the beach, and the restaurants in town (walking distance) with the Michigan wineries just a short drive away. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front all have balconies/front porches (private) with great chairs.

All of us at Lake Country Inn very much appreciate your review. It really was a great summer weekend in New Buffalo and thanks for being a part of it. One thing that is nice about staying at a smaller property is that you have the chance, if you want, of meeting other guests. We have had the pleasure of hosting a lot of fantastic guests from all parts of the country and occasionally from other countries. Hope you can make it back our way again soon.

Decided to come to New Buffalo and choose to stay at this wonderful Inn. The pictures online were very accurate and we were very pleased by our experience. Inn keepers are very nice, coffe and breakfast ready and waiting and a great back deck area to hang out. Very close to town and the beach, would highly recommend this Inn!

We spent two nights at the Lake Country Inn as a little mid-week escape. The inn is a beautiful property in a great location for exploring New Buffalo and the surrounding area. It is only one block off the main street and has its own parking lot which made it very convenient for walking to the nearby restaurants and shopping. There's a lovely patio and a "gathering room" with comfy seating and a fireplace. We stayed in "porch rooms" both nights and really enjoyed sitting out there with a glass of wine, reading and watching the world go by. The rooms are very comfortable and clean with great bedding and classy decor. Everyone at the inn was friendly and helpful, especially Charlotte who checked us in and explained all the inn's amenities to us. We hope to return soon! (My only suggestion would be to put clocks in the rooms - I forgot to bring my watch with me and would have appreciated being able to see the time.)

Thank you for your review. July is peak porch time at our property, and we are very glad you were able to enjoy some time on one this summer. Appreciate the mention of the staff also as they do work really hard. We will be getting some clocks for the rooms-- hope we can find some that will make this great summer go by as slow as possible.
