“Another Rave Review!”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

We were here on a Living Social escape and it truly was...if you want quiet, this is the place! We like B&B's because of the special attention given by the owners, and they did not disappoint. All the staff we met were kind, caring, helpful, and happy. The accommodations were very clean and had just been renovated. The amenities are: blow dryers in rooms, 24-hour availability of beverages and home-baked cookies, wine and popcorn in the afternoon (we enjoyed meeting others that were staying there and finding out where people were from-and the great room is large enough that if you want to be alone, you can just sit somewhere else), a baby grand piano, jacuzzi, bikes, access to a beautiful clean sandy beach with romantic sunsets. The small towns in the area have the usual gift shops, clothing, art, furniture with lots of locally-made items. You are in Lake Michigan wine country, so if you like wine tasting and eating out, there are plenty of excellent places to visit. All rooms have a private bath. They also were able to accommodate a special diet. Breakfasts were healthy and home-made with a meat, egg or starch, OJ, fresh fruit, muffins. It was a little cold in our room since the air was on. They gave us covers for the vents which made the room very comfortable. I would be happy to make a return visit.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Beachcomber which said you could hear Lake Michigan from it. I couldn't.

The Staff and property are designed for a homey and comfy experience. They deliver on all that. Breakfast was a full and creative meal, plated with elegance. The package we booked included a screening at nearby movie theatre (in Three Oaks), and wine tasting (Round Barn). The winery was not a place to return to, mediocre wines, and a dinner at Timothy's at the Gordon Beach Inn. A great meal with terrific staff too. The rooms are all as described in their materials, and the location is perfect for a Harbor Country getaway. A few things need attention in terms of maintenance, but would recommend this place completely.

Room Tip: Room with a View, and Lakeside room share a huge wraparound balcony in the "Lake House"

We found out about this B and B through a Living Social promotion. I am very glad that we did, since it turned out to be a pleasurable experience. We were greeted in a friendly manner, given a tour, and escorted to our room which turned out to be cozy, clean, and containing charm. We enjoyed learning about the history of this property that was contained in books in the large first floor room. Refreshments our first day with popcorn and wine in the main room allowed us to chat with other guests. That night, we came back after dinner to use the outdoor hot tub.
The generous and tasty breakfast included a fruit parfait, french toast, muffins, beverages. Other choices were offered for the breakfast on the following day.
The location is great for those who love the beach, since it was just across the street.
Although not warm enough to take a swim in Lake Michigan when we visited, it was nice simply to see it.
Nearby beach towns are inviting so we were close enough to walk around New Buffalo and St. Joseph as well. If we were in the area during the summer, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. However, unless we plan well in advance, it will be booked up.

My hubby and I stayed at the Inn at Union Pier this past weekend on the Living Social coupon as an anniversary gift. We have been there before on a holiday weekend and loved it each time. This time, however, there were no crowds in New Buffalo so it made the experience even better. Bill and Joyce run the Inn with such grace and warmth you cannot help but love it. The weather was cool enough to use our Swedish fireplace at night and our room was cozy, quiet and we had a spectacularly restful weekend. Met nice people, drank wine. What more can you ask for?

My husband and I stayed here last month. We had purchased the Living Social deal and stayed Sunday-Tuesday. We were a little hesitant because we've never been to a B&B before. We're a couple in our early 30s and were concerned that we wouldn't fit in with the other guests but we had a great time. It was very laid back and we were able have a good time on our own. I look forward to returning in the future. I think it would be gorgeous in the fall.

Recently spent 2 nights in the Sandpiper suite. The whole experience was wonderful. The room was very clean and cozy. The staff went out of their way to make you feel at home. The popcorn and wine at 5 may not sound quite right, but it worked out well. The fresh homemade cookies were a big hit. The first day's breakfast of pancakes with cream cheese were fantastic. The fruit syrup made them even better. The second breakfast of eggs, sausage and potatoes was also good. This was our first time staying in a B & B and will certainly not hesitate to go back when we visit the area again. Thanks to Bill and all the other staff for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: While our room was good, the one's in the other back building have been recently refurbished.

My wife and I have been to The Inn many times and the staff, service and hospitality have always been outstanding! Bill, the proprietor treats you like family; his knowledge of the area and recommendations for dining and entertainment are always right on! Great for weekend (or weekday) getaways.
