We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. The reason the TV is in the bedroom is because, when it used to be in the sunroom, we got a lot of suggestions to move it to the bedroom area. Cant wait to see you again.

We had a great view of the lake and lighthouse. Grounds were nice but it was early so we couldn't enjoy them fully. Room was nice. Mattresses weren't very comfortable. We would stay here again. Room had a microwave and mini fridge which are very nice to have.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was a little small, with a double bed, but had a nice little table and chair set which would have been handy for eating in the room. Loved the colors and décor, with the lounge chairs outside. Everything was very clean and well taken care of. One note, though, if you're used to...

Two newly retired teachers decided to take a 3 day vacation in Port Austin. We selected the Lake Vista Resort in "downtown" Port Austin. The managers, husband and wife, were very pleasant.
