Situated on the shores of White Lake in western Michigan, the Weathervane Inn is a hideaway for travellers looking for a quiet escape. Guest rooms offer flat-screen TVs, DVD players, refrigerators, microwave and coffee makers. Most rooms also have Jacuzzi tubs, fireplaces and balconies; all guests receive complimentary breakfast and Wi-Fi.

The area affords many options for a fun and memorable escape: Kayak, paddle board or fish on White River, play a round of golf at multiple nearby courses or catch a play at the Howmet Playhouse. In warmer weather, you can visit the state's largest amusement and water park, Michigan's Adventure, while in winter, guests can enjoy the many cross-country ski or snowmobile trails in the area — or a few pints at the nearby Fetch Brewing Company. 

Also of note: Across the street from the Weathervane Inn is its namesake — one of the world's largest weather vanes, fully operational and standing 48 feet tall.

I stayed during the off season (late November) . The room was just as cozy as the pictures show. The bed was very comfortable. Very peaceful view of the lake from the room balcony. Because I was there during the off season, several of the local shops and restaurants were closed or only open on certain days. Beautiful scenery in the area.

The Inn is in a great location. The afternoon desk persons (a woman and her son work the shift) are extraordinary and very caring. The breakfast beats going out to get something else. Our room was right across from the front desk so there was a bit of external noise. We appreciated the dog-friendly nature of the inn and the excellent exercise trail that passes the establishment.
