My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for an anniversary getaway. We had 2 rooms that faced the courtyard. It could have been noisy, but large trees in the courtyard afforded both privacy and noise reduction for when we were sitting out on the balcony. Our room was cute, clean and comfortable. We loved the view of the...

My friend and I were looking for a place to crash after kayaking during the day. Our hotel room was very clean and comfortable for the night. Not the most up to date decor or appliances (slow internet and old TV) but felt very at home none the less. The little interaction with staff was very pleasant and It was...

The owners of this establishment are extremely helpful and make excellent recommendations. The overall vibe of the location is CUTE!! We were able to walk everywhere in PA... To the ice cream store (which sadly was closed for the season), the Farmers Market, Beer Garden, PAKayak, the pier and the park. The rooms are adequate if you are only using...

Very well kept clean property in Port Austin. Close walking distance to public beach and downtown eateries and shops. Nice gardens and pool and deck overlooking Lake Huron. We would definitely stay again! The innkeepers are very friendly..we were lucky to get their last room after having to vacate a nightmare room at nearby Bella Vista.

Close to the downtown , lake, farmers market, marina, bakery, grocery store, kayak rental, ice cream store (Blue Moon) walk to the beach I believe it's under new ownership. Port Austin is are great resort town. It's an older hotel but nice and one of the favorites. Highly recommend

We enjoyed our stay at the Lake Vista Resort. There were 6 of us, each of enjoying our visit. The room was clean and kept up. The price was a bit high for the size of the room, but the view was nice. Everything was clean and it was easy to walk to downtown and eat. Every business only takes...

Very clean, Comfortable beds Large rooms Fridge with freezer, microwave, high speed internet that works well Nice pool Close to restaurants The only small inconvenient is that although it is located directly on the lake, there is no sand beach that can be used. You have to go to the municipal beach, which is really close and amazing. 2 min...

We enjoyed our overnight here. Such pretty landscaping, and despite not taking advantage of the pool here, we loved being at the city beach just a few steps away. Our room was small, but we loved the several windows allowing breezes to come in. Most of the patrons were so nice, but one group stayed up late talking in the...

The room was a bit small for the price (we stayed on the bottom floor), but the room and grounds were very well maintained. The only two things that keep it from being 5 stars is they do put the drinking glasses under the sink (unwrapped) which is where they also store the toilet brush. Gross! One of the two...

My husband and I were on a tour of the "thumb" of Michigan and needed a room for the night. We decided to check out the Lake Vista Resort. The buildings were surrounded by beautiful gardens, and guests can enjoy sitting outside in one of several gazebos. There is also a pool and a deck overlooking Lake Huron. The resort...
