We actually rented the three bedroom house that they have available through VRBO. The location of both the house and the resort are fabulous!

The house is located just feet away from the water. The dining room table is located directly in front of large windows looking directly out on the water. Since we were practicing careful social distancing we ate all our meals at this table with its serene view and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. There is no dishwasher here though so all dishes had to be washed by hand. We were very appreciative that they had coffee and salt and pepper stocked for us.

The resort itself is located only steps away from Potawatomi State Park. This is an absolute state treasure. Even though we were there in December, we had a peaceful and restorative hike with our dog through the park.

Not for those wanting a “nice” place to stay.
While the Beach Harbor “resort” is family friendly, close to the water, rents fishing boats and has an impressive Fish-Boil I don’t know I’d recommend it. First let me say the staff is very friendly and helpful.
We rented the Studio Cabin. Small, cute and clean. Night one we tried to watch Netflix, which is available, at least there was a remote control for it. We couldn’t get it to load and called the front desk (via our cell phone as there’s no land line) The woman said she’d send someone to check it out. 45 minutes later I walked over to the desk and was told “sorry but the WiFi doesn’t work that well there”. Our internet was spotty…at best!
The cabin was came with a small kitchen, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and sink. Everything is there including plates, utensils, dish soap and a coffee maker.
Before bed I programmed the coffee maker to turn on early. Getting up to use the bathroom late at night I found the floor was soaked. Apparently the coffee maker was busted and leaked all the water onto the floor.
I don’t want to be mean but this place is a 2 at best out of 4.

Clean, comfortable room. Met our expectations. Food on site. Loved the fried cod. Lots to do in the area. We did not avail ourselves of the amenities. The waterfront restaurant has the benefit of location, location, location and cannot be matched. Onsite bonfire also excellent. Good value room, no view, but nice to be so close to the water.

Two things: We're from Colorado - land of year around tourism from reasonable costs to 'if you've got the $$$$, we'll give you an unbelievably good time" and my group was ages 20 to 63.

Beach Harbor was very reasonably priced. The rooms were clean and more than adequate. The staff was friendly and ready to assist in making recommendations of things to do & see. From renting a jet ski, checking out paddle boards twice, and renting a pontoon boat - 100% solid!! Very impressed they required a test before renting the jet ski, very detailed instructions (person to person) in use of the pontoon. The fish boil is amazing to watch and really good to eat. I didn't eat anything but the fish boil and fried cheese curds (excellent and Colorado needs these!) but others in my group who did eat there gave the food solid 4 stars. Each person in the group found their sweet spot of fun and relaxation. Loved the dogs of the resort and those of the guests.

Will highly recommend Beach Harbor to everyone heading to the area. Noting fancy but relaxing, fun, low key, PERFECT. Can't wait to come back.

I booked this place with the wrong dates. I discovered it immediately. Contacted Expedia to change dates. Hotel could not accommodate my dates. I asked to cancel they charged me a fee for canceling even though I cancelled within 10 minutes of booking. Watch out when you book. Very greedy and not accommodating hotel.

This hotel is conveniently located on the water front. Clean and reasonably priced, very friendly staff who were very helpful with suggestions of restaurants. Restaurant onsite has amazing fish chowder and a beautiful water view. The hotel is right down the road from Potawatomi State Park, where we enjoyed a gorgeous and peaceful hike. Highly recommend if you are just looking for a casual place to stay in this area.

Staff was very friendly. We was here for six days. Our room was very clean.
Furniture was out dated, but bathroom was newly remodeled. Beds was comfortable
Price was reasonable. Steps away from the water
Loved the fish boil at waterfront Mary’s by motel
I definitely would recommend this for a getaway and a family vacation

“Resort” is an old motel-like building badly in need of updating and a good deep cleaning. Our room smelled musty, the shower curtain was disgusting, the carpet near the bathroom was damp and stayed damp for the multiple days we were there. Ventilation was no existent and the lighting in the room was poor. Bar/restaurant on the premises was loud and added to the congestion of the small property. Definitely not a relaxing get away

We stayed in the upper apartment of this resort. This is actually a house which is part of the resort but about 1 mile away. You can still use the amenities like free kayak rental and paid Jet Skis from the actual resort which is at a small beach.
Positives: 1. Clean upstairs of the house.
2. Had everything you needed in the kitchen including great coffee selection and utensils. 3. Quiet neighborhood. 4. Relatively newly renovated. 5. Generally clean 6. Incudes free Kayak rental. Can rent Jet skis and other equipment.
Negatives: 1. Away from the actual resort. 2. The "resort" itself looks dated, Beach is dismal. 3. Unbelievably slow internet.
Overall for the price could not have asked for better. We had a great time.

Good value. Down to earth, no frills type of place. Only ever saw one staff, when checking in. Beds are a bit soft as are pillows. Location was quiet, close to other things we were doing. AND they have TCM! Watched that a lot when in room. You'll have small fridge, microwave, table and 2 chairs. Pets are allowed, but I do think they should be in separate area, so others don't hear the barking. Maybe have their own wing.Take your own soap as what you get is minuscule. Towels are pretty small, not like what you have at home. But overall a nice place. Small. Has a beach, and ramp for boats. On site restaurant, which does fish boil on some nights.
