First time I have stayed here and will definitely be going back. John and Mary were very nice,down to earth and accommodating. Place was well kept and comfortable. Very relaxed atmosphere. It's not a fancy high class hotel with a bunch of high class snobs, but that is not what I like to be around. If you want to relax...

Loved the service and the cabin itself. It was clean and we'll kept. Plus the pool was was clean and very well kept. The owners were friendly and very pleased to keep their customers happy. The environment was family friendly. And it is super close to the amusement park.

Hot tub that they advertise is broken has been for 2 years! Every dish I used had to be cleaned first. Oven in our cottage was not calibrated and it burnt everything! Fridge froze everything. Cats everywhere, everything is covered in cat hair! No one listened to our complaints even after they avoided us and I e-mailed the issues at...

I have been coming to Arbor Lights resort for 11 years now since my divorce with my three daughters. It is something we look forward to every year. John and Mary are fantastic people, the rooms are clean and the HEATED & optic lighted pool is awesome.Most resorts along the lake have cats and that doesn't bother me. I read...

Arbor lights was a fantastic stay. My husband and I brought our three kids here and we all had a fantastic time. Pay no mind to the negative reviews. John and Mary were very friendly and we were well received upon arrival. Our room was very clean and had all the amenities. The window air conditioners worked well to keep...

After reading the two bad reviews I just want to say that they were exaggerated. We stayed with our family in 3 rooms and they all were very clean. We have stayed here before also. Yes, this is an older place, but if you are coming to Indiana Beach, most are coming for that old timey lakehouse atmosphere that we...

this was the worst "resort" I've ever stayed at!!!! The rooms were very old, outdated and disgusting! The shower knobs were falling off, the medicine cabinet has mildew and rusty. The towels and sheets are very old.There are too many stray cats hanging around because the owners feed them. The pool outside is ok, but had a lot of bugs....

I made reservations to stay here last summer. The "resort" was difficult to find. When we pulled up I made my decision that there was no way in the world that I was going to stay here but since I had already paid over $100 for the night my husband convinced me to at least take a look at the...
