Lakeside resort for a vacation with recreation. 7 deluxe suites and 2- 2 bedroom cottages, open year round for vacations/reunions/weddings/parties/etc. After a delicious breakfast, spend the morning lounging in our sunroom, or on our large sundeck and lake level parklike lawn. Enjoy an afternoon swimming and boating, then watch the sun set over beautiful Lake Shafer. Take part in friendly, good natured banter around our 2 firepits, or in our recreation room with card tables, bumper pool tables, and dart board. All of this is just 1.5 hours south of Chicago or North of Indianapolis, and 3 miles from Indiana Beach Amusement Park.

We were looking for a pet friendly spot and found Lighthouse Lodge. We stayed in the cottage on the lake. Plenty of room for the dog to run free (we were there off season) Bonnie and Mike were wonderful hosts and Bonnie is a fantastic cook and caterer. A bit off the beaten path but worth the ride.

Our cottage was very clean and had 2 bedrooms and 2 baths plus a queen-size pull out sofa. It was located just a short walk to the private beach and docks. The rates are very reasonable and the owners are very accommodating and will make your stay both enjoyable and memorable. The breakfasts varies daily and are very good!! The lodge is located minutes from the Indiana Beach Amusement Park and other area attractions. We are already planning our return trip for next Summer!!

We stayed in the Cabin On The Lake. Great view. Enjoyed evenings sitting around a fire on our patio visiting and drinking wine. We have been friends for over 50 years and have taken many week-end trips together. This was one of our favorites. This Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast would be a great spot for reunions. Mike & Bonnie are wonderful hosts.

This is a great place to stay, not just for a vacation, but also while working too. If you find yourself working in the Monticello area, take some time to stay here. I spent a couple days here and brought my wife and daughter. They relaxed and enjoyed the hospitality of Mike and Bonnie while I worked all day. But coming back in the evening was like coming home. Wish we could have stayed longer. Mike and Bonnie make you feel at home, and WOW!!! what great breakfasts we had in the mornings.. Bonnie is a great cook...

My husband and I as well as my in-laws and our three children stayed at one of the cottages located adjacent to the B&B (but also owned by Mike and Bonnie). The cottage was everything that we had hoped for and needed. Sitting out on the back porch watching the sunset over beautiful Lake Shafer was definitly a favorite. Mike and Bonnie were very hospitable and we look forward to returning next year.
