Wonderful time! A perfect Mother’s Day retreat!! The Beverly Shores Drive was a sweet end to most of our nights. Love everything about this house. The lilac bushes were also my favorite. Really wish there was a fire pit to hang out at, but nonetheless beautiful. Great job! See you here again soon. CAN’T WAIT!

We traveled from central Minnesota to spend our honeymoon enjoying the sand dunes! DunesWalk Inn made our stay even more enjoyable and relaxing! We loved the charm of the older building but the convenience of it's modern updates.

We have stayed at Dunes Walk Inn a couple of times now. My partner and I meet there since it is about half way between where we're living now. The last time we were there, we got there just ahead of a blizzard. It was quiet and beautiful and a great experience. I know others have mentioned concerns about noise... More

The DunesWalk Inn is more like DunesDrive Inn-- a close drive, but a drive nonetheless. We stayed for 1 night and it was understandably strange arriving to an old renovated mansion with no front desk and a questionable number of guests also staying there. The spook factor of the exterior was removed once we saw the clean, contemporary rooms and... More

This is an unmanned hotel - all contact is done by e mail. It is not a walk to the Dunes but a drive. It faces a very busy state highway and train tracks and the noise can be loud. Yet it is a former home that is nicely refurbished with very spacious suites.

Ditto the positive reviews re: aesthetics and good karma for fixing up an historic home, but know that your room is not cleaned during your stay. One extra set of towels is provided, but trash is not emptied, floors are not swept (hello, beach sand!), and bedding is not changed. There is no staff on-site, and our call to management... More

First, any place that I can book on line, and then confirm by text - has my business for life. We booked the attic suite, with our 5 year old, and couldn't have been happier with our choice. You can read on their site all about it, and it is all true. If anything, the room is much larger than... More

We stayed in the Furness Suite and as soon as we walked in the room we loved it. Very impressed. We stayed for three nights. There were only two issues...there was only one mirror in the whole suite and that was in the bathroom and there was a little bit of highway noise, but we fixed that problem by buying... More

We selected this hotel for a one night visit prior to driving into Chicago to board Amtrak. The location suited our needs to relax from a road trip. First and foremost, the owners have done a beautiful job at restoring this 1880s historic property. Booking this venue guarantees that projects, such as this, will be done in the future. The...

“South Shore King Room is at the back of house so no street noise. You can still hear train whistle so if light sleeper bring a fan or ear plugs.”

“The two suites are large and perfect for families. The Furness Suite is on the main floor so you do not have steps, but have the foot traffic of other guests. The Beverly Shores Suite is on the third floor so there are steps to get to the room, but no other foot traffic from other guests as this suite covers the entire top floor of the mansion. The South Shore King Room is very large and faces the north/east so is quieter than the other rooms on the second floor.”
