I have to admit I was a little leary when I first read the reviews, but as with anything else I have to see for it myself. So my husband, my three children and I headed to Indiana for the weekend (July 4th) and checked it out for ourselves, AND we were very happy with the way our three days...

My family and friends have been going to Summer Haven for over 25 years. About 7 to 8 different familes. The staff has always been very gracious and has always met our needs. The greatest thing about Summer Haven is that it has always made us feel like it's a vacation from out of the past. It brings back the...

I've been coming to Indiana Beach over the past 14 years and have always stayed at Summer Haven. As in the past, my stay this past weekend was a pleasant one. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Summer Haven sets a cottage atmosphere that brings me back to my childhood memories. When not taking the short walk to Indiana...

We go to Indiana Beach every year with family and friends and I will never stay here ever again. The rooms were Mold and Mildew and very unclean with bugs. The Owners were rude and nasty to us. They would lie about their tickets into the park, said that they would have plenty for the weekend, and did not. It...

My husband, 3 children, and I were going to Indiana Beach for 2 days. The theme park's hotels/cottages were booked so we began calling other places in the area. Summerhaven was the only place with availability so we went with them. Now I know whey they had vacancies! We checked in and went to our room. We had to walk...

Now, make no mistake. This property is aged and is in desperate need of an update. My husband and I spend every Labor Day weekend here in the row of cabins directly across from the pool (always clean). Mr. Biddle is always accommodating, helpful and gracious. We appreciate the experience however since the rooms are clean and supplied with a...

Summer Haven was a nice place to stay! I think the receptionist is awesome. She is loving, caring and her humor was great. The rooms were clean and the boss was very nice. I would recommend anyone to go there.

I must agree that this place needs some TLC. The owner is friendly but he does not spend much money on up keep. The cost for a week with 10 people was very affordable. The deck off the back overlooks the lake and offers a relaxing hide away. It has a refigerator and microwave in the kitchen. We were also...
