Perfect romantic getaway! We had the corner room on the 2nd floor (small fee to upgrade to that room - worth it!) and the view was outstanding. The fireplace, hot tub, and decor was wonderful. We didn't want to leave and we plan to return.

We have been to this place twice before and enjoyed it so when we came across a Groupon, we decided to give it another try. To our pleasant surprise, it appeared that the rooms have been updated (at least ours was) since our last visit. The gas fireplace is a nice touch along with a large hot tub in the...

Front desk and maintenance staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was very cozy. The bathroom was clean and towels very thick. The bed was extremely comfortable. The refrigerator and microwave worked fine. The best part is the deck off from the room. Lakeview faces a marina but it is still a nice view. There are two deck...

Hi Darcy, we would love to have you come stay with us in the summer, there is a lot going on in both towns. The decks are one of our favorite spots as well.

It was very clean, and I loved the smell of the sheets. It was a surprise for my husband for our anniversary . The third Swan was also a great sunset cruise , we thanked them for keeping their boat in the water, Saturday was great for a ride. And it just topped off the weekend.

The Inn is on the end of White Lake and also, right next to the Hart-Montague Trail, so it was perfect for us. We rode our bikes to New Era on the trail the 1st day. The 2nd day of our visit we explored the Whitehall and Montague area on paved bike paths. The inn was comfortable, clean; staff were...

The Weathervane was so close to being perfect. We booked this for a fall getaway with our kids and ended up having a great weekend. My first thought was being surprised that it was sitting right off a main road, which didn't match my internet impression and what I imagined. Nevertheless, it is a super cute setup that is done...

We hit the Weathervane seemingly at the perfect time.. Summer folk have gone home, kids are back in school, and off-season rates kick in. We got a very nice room overlooking the lake with a balcony and hot tub for a very reasonable rate. Room, bed, and hot tub.. all spotlessly clean. Very helpful concierge and good breakfast available to...

We were very happy to find this place, which we did by chance coming down Rte 31. Very comfortable, well-appointed room with a patio and jacuzzi. Typical serve-yourself breakfast with waffle maker and the trimmings. Good walking trails that go several directions from the hotel. Right by the marina.

Great for the price. Lady at desk wasn't friendly all the time. OTHER then that it was great. We will have to visit again. Lot's to do in the area and close to LAKE Michigan. Can't wait for next year to go back.

We have come to this hotel about 6 times since 2010 and we were always happy to return. The dog policy has changed. They charge $20 a night per dog. They have a ton of rules where you can potty your dog. No more are we allowed to go out the back door with the dogs or have them sit...

Hi Melanie, thank you for all the times that you have stayed with us. We understand that it is not you guys who make us have all these rules, but other dog owners, who are not so considerate of others. We have had to tighten up our rules some and are constantly looking at how we can make each stay...
