The lobby was very clean upon arrival. The front desk employees were very professional and courteous! Room was quite large with a relaxing view of the lake. It was a refreshing stay! The breakfast was hot, ready, and tasty!

Our room was beautiful. We stayed lake side which was beautiful. The staff was great. The only downside is the train horns that are blowing all night long. If your not a light sleeper or are used to train noise then it is a great clean place to stay

We went, mainly, to get away for an anniversary weekend, No. 44, which occurred the previous Thursday, partly because we had a gift card for Four Winds Casino and we wanted to have a cheap date/anniversary meal and Chesterton was relatively close (but outside of our home state).

No shuttle that I am aware of. But it is a good walk of about 3 miles. Lots of restaurants in the immediate area. And another good walk to the downtown area with quaint little shops and a park.

Kevin, Unfortunately we do not own the lake, so we cannot set the rules. However the owner of the private lake we sit on does not allow any disturbance of the wildlife. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask. Thanks, Chris Front Office Manager
