Old fashioned but clean and a great place to stay. Pricey, but pretty much everything is in this area! The only thing is the room was bit musty. However, that was cancelled by the pool! Great area! Lovely beach. Walking and bike riding!

The location with view of the lake is beautiful. There are many amenities including bicycles, putting green, fire pits, kayaks, lawn/ beach chairs and pool. Continental breakfast is available in room with a beautiful view and deck availability. Staff was very friendly and helpful. In all, this was a wonderful spot for a very relaxing get-away.

Peaceful, relaxing resort. Very quiet and perfect for a romantic getaway! The rooms do need some updating but well worth the price. Very close to downtown douglas and oval beach. I would highly recommend this resort.

We look forward to our week at Lake Shore resort annually. It is a perfect location across from beautiful Lake Michigan, in the middle of a residential area. It is quiet because the minimum age is 14 years old, which we love. From the ample breakfasts, to the availability of bikes and kayaks, the beautiful pool, areas to walk, lovely... More

We've been coming here for 20 years. One year we decided to do something different; we ended up taking a 2nd vacation back at Lake shore Resort--we missed it that much. Rooms are small but immaculately maintained (if you want to spend time in your room go elsewhere). The grounds are beautiful and extremely well maintained. Pool is great, but... More

We stayed 3 days in the middle of June. The motel is a little old but the rooms were clean and the staff friendly. Great morning breakfast. The view of the lake was great. Nice clean pool. Bikes for use. Their decking at the lake was wonderful. A top area with high bar stools to sit and enjoy the view... More

Stayed for a week with my daughter at this enchanting spot. It was a quiet residential area. The sunsets are beyond gorgeous. The lighted firepit warmed us while allowing us to enjoy the beautiful star lit skies. Though the rooms are a little dated, my daughter and I absolutely love it here. Every evening, we grilled out and just enjoyed... More

Nicest people ever running this place. When I made reservations, the lady on phone was so patient and helpful to me. And when I arrived, Jennifer and Michelle were both soooo nice. The guy that checked us out was also very nice. I could tell he really cared that we had a nice time. You know how someone might say... More

I was looking for a calm, sort of off the grid place to just unwind for 3 glorious days, do some yoga and meditation, know no one, catch up on reading and just be with my thoughts.

The view: Fabulous! This place has the peace and beauty like no other! The friendly helpful staff is outstanding! The beach walks at sunset were off the hook!
