"The Lighthouse Inn, A Safe Place to Land."
The beauty of this hotel experience is that it was a good, warm, safe place to land. I was visiting a sick relative in the Aurora Medical Center literally right down the road from the Inn and when I returned each night, my room was quiet, warm and clean. Most of my meals were right there in their charming restaurant, The Water's Edge, located just past the lobby on the left in the same building. Delicious food, pretty settings, beautiful view of Lake Michigan with it's gentle waves lapping up and on the huge rocks lining the front of the restaurant. Windows from top to bottom showed off shimmering lights of the ice cold snow outside. The staff here were friendly, attentive, funny and genuine. They all knew a little about most everything from the size of Lake Michigan to how they made their original sweet cinnamon syrup for my pancakes. After dinner, I passed the lobby again and walked into a quaint little bar right next door, yet still in the same building. "Old Mariner" comes to mind as I sat down with my drink and looked around. Wagon wheel lamp with antique jars for the lights, another great view of Lake Michigan, rockin' juke box,are just a few of the many details of the bar. Housekeepers, bar tender, wait staff, everyone who I met was friendly and helped me feel at home. There is also a heated indoor pool, spa and exercise equipment. Oh, I must not forget the little ice cream bar, also in the lobby.
