Arbor Hill Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 LaPorte B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 May 2017

We were welcomed promptly by the owner, but she quickly showed us to our room on the 3rd floor and then disappeared. We were not shown around the house at all, so we went exploring on our own. There are 2 beautiful patios/balconies and a nice sitting room on the main floor. The bed was very comfortable and there was a nice bathroom attached to our room. There were even 2 peanut butter cookies in the room for us (while they were very good, I am surprised that someone would choose pb cookies with so many people who have allergies.) There was a very small TV in the room that got several channels, but we could hardly hear it. There are no alarm clocks in the room, but there is a blow dryer in the bathroom. In the morning, I was waiting for my husband to put our bags in the car and I sat on the couch in the sitting room but was promptly shooed away and told that that room was for the large group who was coming to eat breakfast.
Breakfast food was delicious and we were able to request a breakfast time. One of the things we like about B and B's is getting to chat with other guests, but this was not the case here as we were put at a small 2 person table, as were the other couples who were eating at the same time. Overall, I would stay here again if we are in the area, but would certainly not rush back.

Room Tip: The tree view room on the 3rd floor is TINY! Don't book it if you are tall!

From the moment we entered the front door, this weekend stay was all we hoped it would be for our friend reunion. Four of us from the Class of 1980 came with our spouses to enjoy the wine tours in nearby Michigan.
Each bedroom we had was a mini suite with a private bath. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of room. Each suite had a gas fireplace that added warmth and ambiance to our nights.
Breakfast was delicious and filling! Eggs, bacon, sausage, stuffed French toast with coffee and juice. Our hostesses went above and beyond to anticipate our every need.
We hung out late into the night in the parlor area drinking wine and walking down memory lane.
Huge front porches with a great water view!

Room Tip: The third story rooms are much smaller.

I booked the room for me and my wife for her birthday and unlike other places I was able to get a lot of other things like flowers, couples massage and then some would out having to make other calls got a room the was better than anything you woild get at another place in the area and the breakfast there is like going to grandma's house not some Buffet with old food and paper plates.

This was my 4th visit to Arbor Hill BnB while visiting family in Michigan City! I always feel like I am staying with old friends. Every attention to detail is met by Kris & Laura. They ALWAYS greet you with a smile even when your in the kitchen looking for coffee (early am). The rooms are nicely appointed and bring in the feeling and flavor of the past! Even though this home is old the rooms and common areas are spotless!! My favorite room is Victory Garden as you feel you waking up in the tree tops surrounded by nature; even though this room is on the front of house it's very quiet at night! Lots of old beautiful window let in the light!! Arbor Hill never disappoints!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are larger with fireplace

We spent a weekend away and treated ourselves to the W. A. Jones Retreat. It was very cozy and completely immaculate ! The jacuzzi tub and fireplace created a relaxing time . The atmosphere of the Inn was awesome, from the inviting smells each morning of coffee and breakfast cooking, to the music playing in the background..We also had them prepare a dinner for 2 on Saturday evening which was perfectly done as well... Kris and Laura were extremely helpful and kind, without being in the way. A perfect balance. We will most definitely be back, even though we live in the area . Thank you again, Kris & Laura, for a perfect weekend getaway .
