No expense was spared in remodeling this oasis in a Michigan beach community; the rooms are named for colors that the decorator used to their full extent. More importantly, however, is the cleanliness and soft towels and nice amenities. Add to that very hospitable owners and staff combined with a very nice continental breakfast you have a great place to return to after wandering this very unique area adjacent to Lake Michigan. They don't allow children.

Room tip: Two rooms have great porches with Adirondack chairs!

Thank you so very much for your review. We are extremely pleased you enjoyed your visit. While our property has the look and style of an older building, it was actually built brand-new from the ground up in 2005. Hi quality materials are present throughout the property and include Pela windows, Kohler fixtures, and some very nice furnishings from the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. Also, the property was built specifically to be an inn with additional soundproofing throughout.

We changed our policy to adults only about two years ago as our property is fairly small and just not set up for children.. This is has worked out very well for our guests so far.

Hope we see you back soon. We totally agree with you that the Southwest Michigan shoreline area is unique and extremely beautiful.

My husband and I were interested in checking out Lake Michigan from the Michigan shore. New Buffalo was so easily accessible so we headed to Lake Country Inn based on a recommendation from friends. The Inn was the absolute perfect respite for a birthday weekend. We were close to the beach, downtown shopping and dining. And more importantly, the Inn was high end, well appointed and completely charming. The owners made a point to be on site to greet guests, and the staff were really helpful; present (if needed) but invisible! Wonderful weekend getaway.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your visit to New Buffalo. Thank you so much for your review and for staying with us. While our property is only a one hour drive from downtown Chicago, you will feel like you have escaped to a place much farther away. The small town atmosphere and our beautiful shoreline really help you relax and rejuvenate. It is no wonder that the Wall Street Journal has highlighted the Harbor Country Area as one of the top second home regions in the country.

Hope to see you guys again soon.

Great location in New Buffalo. Friendly staff and well appointed rooms that have room to move around. The rooms are beautifully appointed with a nice bathroom with good quality toiletries. We were in transit to Wisconsin and stayed the night. They had good recommendations for dining - dinner and breakfast. They have a nice continental breakfast but we opted for a walk and visit to a local eatery for a more substantial meal. The room did not have a fridge but they were helpful and stored our items for us. Would definitely return.

Room tip: We were upstairs and had no noise issues, other than a huge thunderstorm that probably woke the entire town.

We really appreciate your staying with us and thanks so much for the review. Our building was constructed in 2005 so all the systems are current. Also, the property was specifically built to be an Inn so there is lots of extra sound proofing. Plus, there are now worries about losing power to the building during one of our summer storms as we have a complete back-up generator system to make sure our guests stay comfortable.

Hope you can make it back our way soon.

First time overnighting in New Buffalo, as we usually make it a day trip. Inn is conveniently located walking distance to restaurants & shops. We drove to beach ($10 parking per day) because of the chairs & coolers we were carrying, . We were in the orange room, comfortable bed, nice walk in shower. Because we were on the 1st floor, front, I did feel like we couldn't open the blinds :( and felt a little closed it. Had breakfast on balcony, and the street was very quiet. Would definitely consider coming again, next time booking a second floor room.
Also, about 1 hour after we left, got a call that we had left our suits in the bathroom, they held them as we returned within the hour...thank you as we were still local and not back home!!

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you so much for your review. Glad you were able to enjoy our great New Buffalo beach. The summer weather has been fantastic this week and this is when New Buffalo really shines as a " beach town". The water temps in Lake Michigan are still a little cool this year but a dip in the Lake feels fantastic and is a great relief from the summer heat. Our sunsets, as always, are as good as it gets!

Hope you can make it back soon.

This was a great place to stay. Very clean, very nice service, and great rooms. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. You can walk anywhere in town. We had the saffron room which came with a balcony which was great.

Thanks so very much for staying with us and for your review. Our location is definitely one of our properties strong points. You really don't need to use your car after you check in. So after taking in a fantastic Lake Michigan sunset, it is just a short stroll back to your comfy room or to one of our great local hang outs.

Hope you can make it back soon. We are very pleased you enjoyed you visit.
