    Historical Traveler Reviews Lake Shore Resort Saugatuck

    What a great place

    from

    We have been going for 6 years. This has been a very trying year for my family because of my sister's illness. My sister's and I were able to go to Lake Shore in May. It was a peaceful few days, the perfect place to be. My husband and I are going this week for our rest and soul building days. Can't wait for it is the best place around.

    Comfortable and peaceful surroundings. Hospitable. Beautuful beach access.

    Inground pool. Beautiful beach access. Commanding Lake Michigan view.

    Our Summer Secret

    from

    Our family has stayed at the Lake Shore for 20 years now, and we absolutely love it!! We keep

    going back, so it must be obvious! We have

    found the rooms to be very clean, neat, and

    nicley decorated. We always enjoy having a

    refrigerator in the room. There is also the

    beautiful original artwork of local artist James Brandeis displayed in the guest rooms. His gallery is part of the many shops in downtown Saugatuck.

    We love the sunsets, the beach, the floating blue chairs and rafts for the pool, the putting green, the landscaping around the resort, the tables where you may sit to view the sunsets, and last (but certainly not least) the best chocolate donuts in this

    world served at the morning breakfast (and there

    are wonderful muffins, cereal, bagels, juice, etc.)

    The staff at this resort are top-notch - they always

    are asking if we have everything we need, and

    if they don't have it, they will find something that

    will work! The family that owns this resort are

    always looking for us to arrive, and greet us

    warmly when we get there. They have given

    us such great information on area restaurants,

    entertainment, wineries, shops, and new things

    to do over the years. I must say that the restaurants that have been recommended have

    been excellent, and we continue going year after

    year.

    The fact that we go to Lakeshore Resort the same

    time each year, and we continue to see the same

    guests each year says a lot. I would highly rec-

    ommend this vacation spot to everyone - the

    resort is friendly, warm, and cozy, and the views

    from the rooms of the lake are unimaginable!!!

    Peaceful, Relaxing, worth every penny

    from

    This was our second visit and we included the entire family this trip. We had a wonderful time, we all needed some r/r and here is the place to go. The beach is quiet and private. Enjoying the sun and relaxing with the sound of the waves on the shore was the highlight of our trip. The staff is wonderful, very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and very quiet. We love the homey feeling of the resort. The flowers are beautiful and everywhere you sit there is a beautiful view. The resort is very close to town, and what a beautiful drive thru waterfront homes to get there.

    We have beautiful pictures to enjoy until next year. We are looking forward to making this a yearly visit. There is something for everyone in Saugatuck and staying at the Lake Shore helped make our vacation very memorable.

    Wonderful place

    from

    I have just recently retired as an International Flight attendant after 39 years pf travel. I think the Lake Shore Resort is one of the most wonderful places I have ever stayed. Serene, peaceful, perfectly located on Lake Michigan with gorgeous Golf courses 5 minutes away, antique shopping, fabulous dining and all types of boating within 10 minutes. The owners are fantastic and go to any length to accomodate their guests. When I drive into the Lake Shore Resort I feel as thought the rest of the world and all problems are on hold while I vacation. Dont miss this great resort.

    A precious GEM of a resort

    from

    The most beautiful sunsets compare to the oceanviews in Hawaii! Very private & intimate. It's my favorite place in the Midwest!

    Hidden treasure

    from

    I am reluctant to write this review because one dosen't like to reveal one personal fishing spot or mushroon hunting ground. The Lake Shore Resort is the only Hotel that is on the Lake Shore in the Saugatuck-Douglas area with a grand view of the lake from many rooms. The staff is friendly and service is great. The room rates are reasonably. It has availably beach area and is the perfect spot to view sunsets. Try it and you will like it!!

    Nice place but some upgrades needed.

    from

    A nice peaceful motel overlooking Lake Michigan in Saugatuck, Michigan.

    The staff is friendly and respectful since your credit card does the talking. Some things bothered me at the place. The old 50s style bathroom. The pink tiles just give me the chills with the old vanities.

    The bathroom can use an upgrade to a more modern style. I believe the water service is on a well because when you take a shower, the water feels real oily. Each room has a great view of Lake Michigan but make sure you move the lawn chairs away from your window or put a towel on them to reserve them so you dont have the people from next door sitting right in front of your lake view window. The air conditioning units are not spectacular and should be upgraded and so is the television set.

    Make sure that your blinds are closed if you are sleeping or changing your clothes because the walk way is right up against the lake view window. The place has a large heated pool with plenty of tables and sunning chairs. If there is a beach (some years there is no beach) the beach is a decent size but it has a long flight of stairs to climb back up. Overall its a good place to go to if these kind of things dont bother you.

    Just Great

    from

    Had a wonderfull time at the resort.The staff was very helpfull and courteous.The room was very comfortable,and the view of the lake was fantastic. We know we will be back again. Overall a great place to visit.

    Moldy but nice amenities

    from

    Beautiful day when we arrived for Labor Day weekend 2003. They were pleasant at the desk (not suprising considering the $540 tab just for three days). Our room [#21] had two queens, a fridge and a serious mold problem. The place stunk the whole time and not having a functional AC unit (not that the puny device would help) didn't help alleviate the problem. But they had a heated pool with plenty of mats. Beachfront property which lent to only one beautiful sunset considering the weather. But the lake was nice (and cold!) and its just a short jaunt to Saugatuck & Douglas. Be sure to ask for a DRY room!

    In a couple of hours we'll be leaving Holland to begin the first leg of our journey. Somehow leaving on September 11 feels appropriate because, as tragic as it was, this day above all others reminds me of the strength and courage of Americans, both now and in those early days of the founding of the original colonies.

    There won't be much to comment on for the first couple of days. We'll be stopping in Columbus, ...

    We made it down to the beach in time to catch a beautiful sunset and have a cruise around town. Despite being a lake this place really did feel like a beach, with the white sand and water stretching as far as the eye could see.

    With the time moving forward one hour from Chicago we were pushing it to find a place ...

    ... on our descent into Denver (onto Chip's pants too). Dang it! The plane hit the ground and we scrambled to get out quick. It's interesting when you have two babies, two adults, and two bags and you're trying to be organized on an airplane in the smallest seat imaginable. Not to mention trying to fold up and open a double stroller once you're off while holding the aforementioned. There was a very sweet lady who offered to ...
