Lakeside’s Room Journals or submitted by Guests:
enjoy our visits to Lakeside and always hate to leave. This
is our 16th year. We’ve stayed in a number of different rooms
here—it really doesn’t make any difference as we enjoy our time here
We have been coming here for 3 years and have fun each year.
We enjoy celebrating the 4th of July with so many families who come
here every year at the same time. The kids act like cousins
and the adults enjoy renewing their friendships. Everyone
loves the pool, tennis court, and the great view of White
We came here as children for over 10 years in a row. This is
our 11th year in a row since we started coming back in 1993.
Hope for many more. This is a special place for us and we
always enjoy Lakeside Inn and the whole area. We always
discover new things and enjoy so much which is familiar to us.
I have been coming here since the late 60’s as we used to rent a
cottage yearly along Scenic Drive. As a special treat my
parents would get us all “gussied-up” for dining on the
waterfront—Lakeside Inn. I fell in love with its “old time
history, the ambiance of the place, the old-days lost charm”.
DON’T EVER MODERNIZE THIS RESORT. It is so restful and it is
a perfect spot to get away from the big city. When we got
married in 2000, that was my first time to actually stay in the Lodge
and we enjoyed it so much that it has become our annual Labor Day treat
for us to look forward to each year. We always hate to leave,
we always say we’re going to quit our jobs and move here—but, alas,
neither of us is fond of winter.
This was the worst weather we have experienced since coming here, but
surprisingly it was the best time ever. The kids never
complained and had a wonderful time playing baseball and fishing with
the other kids. We sat and watched the lake in sweats instead
of bathing suits and it was just as beautiful. See you next
We came here for years as kids and now for the past 12 years as
adults. Love it more each year. Look forward to
coming back next year. We pre-book our time for next year as
we leave. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we
do. See you next year!
This is our 4th year coming to Lakeside Inn. We just love
this place. The kids can roam the place without too much
supervision. They love to play tennis right outside the
door. There’s so much to do in the area—we always end up
staying an extra night or two. So relaxing. We’ll
Thursday night’s sunset was extra special! Floating on the
shoreline of Lake Michigan in a little blow up boat!
“Hunting” for rocks in the a.m. before anyone else was up (except
Chewy). We really enjoy Chewy (the dog) and think about her
all year long. We call her our “vacation dog”. My
daughter brought a ball to give to her as a gift. We love the
friendly staff here and how clean and beautiful everything
is. We appreciate the pool, playground, shuffleboard,
etc…This is our paradise away from home for one week out of the
year! We hope to keep this as a family tradition and hope to
get our brothers and sisters to join us some years with their
families. I love the coffee in the mornings! I am
an early riser, so every a.m. I get a cup of coffee and sit on the
beach watching the beautiful sunrise. Everyone talks of the
sunsets, but the sunrises around here are amazing too. My
daughter had a wonderful vacation again this year. Thank you
for the wonderful memories and pictures!
After driving from place to place for hours, we finally found what we
were searching for…. "Paradise".
This was our very first visit here. I was fortunate enough to
find this place on the Internet and booked our room sort of last
What a jewel! Friendly, helpful and courteous
staff. Beautiful grounds. Awesome
sunsets. We'll be back!
This is the second time we have been here. We highly
recommend the Lakeside Inn with its awesome atmosphere.
Friendly staff. Good food. Sara, who was our
waitress most of the time, was nice and gave great service.
We plan on coming back next summer and hopefully manymore.
Michigan Adventures early Saturday and stayed until the
evening. Checked into Lakeside around 9:00. Great
food in the restaurant. Sat outside by the water with our
friends and caught up on our lives. The kids had a ball
inside playing. What a great spot this is!
Enjoying the peace and quiet at this time of the season here; not a lot
of people, gorgeous tree colors, swans out in the front in the
morning. A great R and R get-a-way weekend (and at a discount
I love this place! We've come every year for the past 4! Love
the charm and love the waterfront view.
I loved waking up in the morning and stepping right out my
door to sit by the lake! The swing outside the room
was really nice also. This was a wonderful
experience! We had a lot of fun and were very
comfortable. We hope to come back again soon!
A rest, retreat was greatly needed by this tired woman…from her
beloved, but noisy family, telephones, interruptions. So I
ran away from home to Lakeside Inn Resort where I arrived Wednesday to
a warm reception on a very cold, windy, rainy night. I found
wonderful peace and quiet here and a gracious staff that saw for my
every whim. I'm leaving today; to quote Dorothy "There's no
place like home". I intend to return and make this my fall
Where the fun begins.
The crowds arrive by cars and plane
Time to gather sun or rain.
Breakfast at 8:00
Life is great.
From boat, to pool,
Now this is cool.
Dog N Suds for lunch
Or Crosswinds with the whole bunch.
On the water with Captain Jack
He gives us a ride, but watch your back!
Ted and girls give the water a whirl,
Skiing, tubing, and a little fishing,
To be retired is what I’m wishing.
Two weeks is not enough
Need more time to do our stuff.
So here’s a reminder of where we go
To get us through days of ice and snow.
Look forward to walking and lots of talking -
To soak up sun and have lots of fun-
Put this were you can see
How much you are loved, by little ol me!
