Lake Shore Resort more than lives up to its name by providing a Michigan vacation that promises guests a front row seat to the awesome sights and sounds of Lake Michigan within minutes of downtown Saugatuck/Douglas.
A combination hotel-motel-resort, the Lake Shore is the area’s only lodging facility overlooking the Great Lake Michigan with a private beach for the exclusive use of its guests. A majority of the resort’s guests are adults seeking a quiet and relaxing stay on the lake amidst natural surroundings.
The resort offers 30 rooms that are comfortably furnished with king, queen, or twin beds providing a two-person maximum occupancy. A limited number of rooms will accommodate up to four people. All rooms include refrigerators, coffeemakers, air conditioning, cable TV, and best of all, large windows for spectacular views of the lake. Continental breakfast is served in the common area and outside on a wrap-around deck overlooking the Lake.
The lake views only begin there. Guests can stroll to the water’s edge down a bluff staircase that features three viewing decks as they descend toward one of the finest beaches in Michigan. Once on the beach guests can walk for miles or make use of complimentary lounge chairs, shade umbrellas, and kayaks.
Lake Shore’s list of extras extends beyond the beach focus to include a large heated swimming pool, putting green, bikes for cycling along scenic Lakeshore Drive, and free WIFI. The site’s three acres of beautifully landscaped grounds blend into two miles of private wooded walking trails. At the end of the day, guests can soak up brilliant sunsets over the lake and then cap off the evening in front of flickering flames from lake view gas fire pits.
For so many guests, Lake Shore Resort is “absolute heaven”- “a serene paradise” only a short drive from shops, art galleries, restaurants, and other activities in the Saugatuck area. Experience Saugatuck and Stay on Lake Michigan…it’s Great.
