We stayed here overnight on a family trip to a funeral. This was a good value, and the hotel met all our needs. The room was clean, and the amenities were as expected. Also, I enjoyed seeing the geese hang out around the hotel, which is seated next to a small lake.

I want to start of by saying my condolences for the loss. It is always hard to lose a loved one. I am very glad to hear that your stay with us was comfortable and relaxing. I also would like to thank you for taking time to leave this review and cannot wait to see you again in the future.

It is under construction. Clarify you want to be in the main building, not the "sister property" which is under renovation. First floor room had the back door unlocked so I had someone go with me to make sure no one was in the room. Given the bait and switch in putting part of our group in the sister building...

Had to stay longer than was expected for birth of grandchild at hospital down the road. Hotel was very well maintained but the continental breakfast on the one morning I availed myself of it was all very luke warm, including the coffee.

I want to thank you for taking the time to leave your review of your stay with us. Congratulations on the new grand baby! Was it a boy or girl? I would like to ask which entree was luke warm so that I may take steps to avoid our breakfast being anything less than exceptional.

Quick summary: much is the same as a previous visit -- spacious, clean, well-kept room. Whether traveling through or needing to stay for a while, this is a good choice. My review is based on what I expect for a moderately-priced, well-kept hotel. Since there are not many other reviews since my previous visit, I refer readers to that more...

This is my "go to" hotel when I visit family in Chesterton, it is comfortable and clean, I love the pond/lake, it adds a nice view and has some great wild life. It is close to the main roads, restaurants and some light shopping.

Excellent value and location. Stayed NYE to visit friends in NW IN who host a Polar Bear Swim each New Years Day.
