The Blue Heron Inn hearkens back to the days when a family could stay at a lake resort without blowing their budgets. Though the décor is a bit dated, the hotel is clean, fresh and comfortable. Situated on the east shore of Pine Lake and within minutes to Lake Michigan, this hotel offers families a no-fuss place to stay and play on a pretty lake. Guests can splash around in Pine Lake, visit area orchards and U-picks nearby, or venture forth to New Buffalo, Michigan, a trendy beach town just 15 minutes away.
A boardwalk is ideal for families who want to take a stroll by the lake day or night, and an onsite restaurant and tiki bar features beautiful lake views. A hearty breakfast of sausages, toast, eggs, yogurt, and waffles is included in the price of the stay.
