We booked on line. When we arrived we were told they closed on October 1st, but had a wedding that evening so we could stay. Wasn't too sure what we were getting into but turned out wonderful. Room in lodge was dated but clean with comfortable beds. Staff was friendly and helpful.

This was our third visit over 15 years and we still love the Lakeside Inn. We have had a small family reunion (13 People) the last two times and it has been enjoyable for everyone 8 to 88. We love setting chairs on the patio facing the lawn and relaxing with a beautiful view of the water. Pool, lawn games,...

After driving the scenic route along Lake Michigan, we stumbled upon Buzz's. We are sitting on their outdoor patio with the locals, enjoying a delicious Sunday evening meal, overlooking White Lake. I had the perch, which was perfect! I asked for fresh veggies instead of the fries, which they easily accommodated. My husband had Buzz's burger, which he also enjoyed!...

Lakeside Inn has been a tradition ever since I first attended Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp when I was 11 years old. After spending 2 weeks in cabins and eating "miserable" camp food, I would always be excited for my parents to treat me to rustic accommodations and prime rib/perch dinners in the scenic restaurant. The location is picturesque and...

Friendly service, great view and amazing food. We would not hesitate to come back here. Try the asparagus and blue cheese burger salad. Ask for MacKenzie for your server!!! We ate outdoors, the Mac & Cheese was delicious with smoky flavor. Prime rib sandwich was 5 stars.

A throwback to how vacation spots use to be. Low key, well maintained, charming and friendly. Sure, service is a bit downhome, but that's why you stay at place like Buzz's. It's a delight to see that these places still thrive today! Our room was cute, and very clean. We stayed in the main building, and had to carry our...

On our arrival the room supposed to be ours wasn't set! Then the guy gave us another one, just next to the former. This room was spacious, but there were no heating and just one bathroom in spite that the site announcing there should be another toilet. Also we had to call the front desk for the cleaning of the...

It was so relaxing to be able to sit and enjoy the view. We went to Mac Woods Dune Rides on Silver Lake. We ate at the restaurant at the Inn and were quite pleased with our food and the price. We were so thankful that we were able to get a room on Labor Day week-end.
