Loved it, my sweetheart and I had a great time, the food was wonderful and so were the views. The band was good as well. I have been there several times and have nothing but good things to say.

We love to go to Chamberlin's for a nice meal and they often have great live music. The food is consistently delicious, the service is good, and the owners are wonderful people. We have been many times, and expect to continue indefinitely! :)

The food was excellent and server was very nice and efficient. There was a warm fire in the fireplace and there were plenty of comfortable seats available to sit, relax, and read. I heard the waitress say that this one person could even have his meal there; how accommodating. The food was tasty and prepared wonderfully. The menu has a... More

Kelly and Bud Chamberlin are the proprietors of this first class bed and breakfast located on a high bluff overlooking Big Manistique Lake. When weather permits, dining on the wrap around porch is a special treat. Fine dining can be a bit pricey but the food here is tasty and well prepared and served. You'll enjoy the honey butter and...

Can not believe there was such a good restaurant in a not too populated area. All the food was excellent. The calamari appetizer was especially good.

Met some family friends here for dinner while they were visiting the area. It was a rainy, Tuesday evening during the peak leaf color time, and the warm atmosphere of this charming Inn felt like I was stepping into a novel. We had drinks at our dining table that looked out over the lake, and shared a maple Brie with... More

Pros: Very clean. The bed was comfortable, the shower was hot, the room tastefully decorated and in excellent condition. The view out the back facing the lake is nice. Also a nice place to sit and read or chat. The WiFi worked well. The music in the restaurant downstairs was outstanding and inaudible in the rooms above. Cons: The warm,... More

If you're in the area it's so worth going to Chamberlin's. Big Victorian Inn on Manistique Lake. Beautiful old dining room but if its nice, eat on the wrap-around porch and enjoy the knockout lake view. Good bar and very friendly server.
