Situated on the shores of White Lake in western Michigan, the Weathervane Inn is a hideaway for travelers 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.

Fireplace and jacuzzi in room with lake view

Their breakfast setup leaves something to be desired as there are tables immediately adjacent to guests doors. I was asked by a guest to move from eating breakfast at the table right outside their door. Awkward and uncomfortable. They need more space away from rooms for guests to enjoy breakfast.

The rooms were very clean, loved the view and the jacuzzi tub and double shower. An extra delicious treat was warm baked cookies at night...amazing!
