The location of the inn is ideal for walking to shops and restaurants. The room was immaculate and well-appointed. The bed is memory foam and comfortable. The common kitchenette had an ice maker, mini-fridge, and tea kettle. Cookies and fruit were always available. On the negative side, the window coverings in the rooms are wood blinds that do not block...

Thank you so much for your review and for staying with us. Our breakfast was a topic on several reviews this season and we are considering possible changes for next year. However, we are not a B&B and we have no kitchen. Correspondingly, our room rates are typically 10-15% lower than local B&B's that offer a more elaborate breakfast. Also,...

Just back from a mid week stay at Lake Country Inn…this was our third time visiting the inn and were just as impressed as the first time we stayed there. Spotless, well kept, comfortable no matter which suite you are in and the morning breakfast is just enough to get you going. Great location for all the winery visits and...

Spent a couple of days in New Buffalo, Michigan and stayed at the Lake Country Inn. Great place to stay. We stayed in the Blue Room and it was a very nice room facing the back of the Inn. There is no private porch with this room but you can walk out your room door and around the corner and...

We enjoyed our one night at this clean well kept location. Room was comfortable and the 3 season room was fun to sit in and play a game or sit at the fireplace if it had been cooler outside. The breakfast was a typical continental breakfast. All the rooms were full, the price was reasonable and even tho full the...

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your review. Our central location makes it easier to relax during your visit since you can simply walk to many great places to eat, the beach, and shops. Also, since New Buffalo is a small village of only 1,700 residents, it's not like you are staying in a busy town...

We stayed at the Lake Country Inn in August. We had the Red Room, which was very comfortable and in new condition. There was a separate building with couches for reading or playing games, and also wide porches with chairs for lounging. Our room opened directly to the outside, so it felt very private. The Inn is on a quiet...

Thanks you so very much for your review. Rising lake levels have caused a lot of erosion along our shoreline recently. Fortunately, the New Buffalo Beach is still in good shape although smaller than it was several years ago. After Labor Day the beach activity drops off dramatically on the weekends and especially during midweek. So during September you can...

An old style in that has been built recently. This is our second year staying at the inn mid-week in late August and have loved it.

My friend and I really enjoyed the yellow room. There is a wonderful front porch for sitting and chatting and enjoying a cup of coffee.

We enjoyed the Inn very much. We chose the Orange room which was very pretty! The only issue was that there was a lot of street noise from restaurant across the street but that's hardly the inn's fault. We loved the patio and the grounds were gorgeous! Very nice boutique hotel! Close to beach!

Thanks so much for staying with us and for your review. Our Orange and Yellow rooms both have great first floor porches. Our Tower and Saffron rooms likewise have wonderful balconies that are perfect summer hangout spots. And the beach is the place for epic sunsets over the Chicago skyline. Hope we see you back soon.

I looked for a place for a short break and found it difficult to find somewhere for the dates I was looking for. Lake Country Inn came up but was my only option, so I was a little concerned as sometimes that is because people are avoiding the place! Nothing could have been further from the truth, what a great...

Thank you so much for your review. Occasionally during the summer we have a cancelation that results in a last minute weekend vacancy. Otherwise our summer and early fall weekends are typically filled well in advance. Starting in late August the midweek will really start to slow down so there are usually last minute rooms available. Midweek in September is...
