“Relaxing and modern inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2008

We spent a relaxing summer weekend here. The place isn't listed in some of the information listings for that whole area of Michigan (called Harbor Country) and I have no idea why. It was fantastic. The place looks like a quaint old inn on the outside but the inside is completely modern, clean and comfortable. Apparently it was only built 5 years ago but the outside was designed to fit in with the town, which is much nicer than some of the other new construction in town.

The hotel is just off the main street in New Buffalo and within a 10-15 minute walk to the water. We stayed in the Orange Room which was on the first floor. It was spotless, the bed was comfortable and everything was modern. There are some pastries and coffee in the morning.

The owner, Rick, was very helpful and gave us great suggestions on where to eat. I would definitely spend another relaxing weekend here in the summer. I can't say enough nice things about this place.

My husband and I have stayed here several times and absolutely love it! It's like staying with friends who know how to take care of you, without hovering. We love to sit on our private porch and read for hours and it's really conveniently located to everything in downtown New Buffalo (just steps away). Even the beach is just a few blocks away.

The owner is wonderfully gracious, ready to help make your stay perfect. He has fresh coffee and pastries waiting downstairs each morning - all you do is fill up a tray and take it to your room!

As much as I hate for this place to be "discovered," it's worth sharing.

We spent three wonderful summer days at this beautiful, top-of -line inn, conveniently located in the center of charming New Buffalo.
Owner Rick Cyrnek has created a luxurious oasis, with quality evident throughout the inn. The individually furnished and decorated rooms feature understated traditional decor, with heavenly bedding and linens, flat screen TVs, internet access, and gorgeous baths with spa quality toiletries.
Daily self-serve continental breakfast includes fresh fruit and bakery pastries, served in the stunning common area. Guests are invited to use the refrigerator, and the courtyard's separate great room for reading, socializing, and lounging. On site parking is a huge plus on weekends and during the summer season. The inn's location make it an easy walk to the beach, shops, and numerous restaurants.( Brewster's, an outstanding family-owned Italian restaurant with delightful indoor and outdoor decor, is just across the street from the Inn.)
While the inn is in all regards outstanding, it is owner Rick Cyrnak who will be remembered by guests. He is everything an innkeeper should be--friendly, kind, and accommodating. Devoted to his Airdale, he added to the inn's design a separated room for guests traveling with their dog. Every guests we spoke to raved about this highly recommended inn. We will return with pleasure.
