Fall is a GREAT time to slip out to the shore and enjoy the change of the season with great views. Nestled on Muskegon Lake, Shoreline Inn is only 45 minutes away from Grand Rapids and is a wonderful place to relax. Enjoy a decadent stay in one of Shoreline’s rooms (each is unique) at a great off season price. Catch a Girl’s night out, or a couple’s weekend retreat from the hustle and bustle. Got kids? They will enjoy the great indoor pool. Each room is well equipped and breakfast is complementary as is the Wi Fi.


When you wish to enjoy a great meal, simply walk across the marina and visit The Lake House Waterfront Grille. The food’s always good and, you will be tempted by the varied and fresh menu options that change seasonally, like spiced cashew crusted tuna and for dessert, you might try a bite of your companion’s white chocolate macadamia nut cookie sundae and laugh at yourself as the hot fudge drips onto your chin.


Don’t let fall slip away without a visit to Shoreline Inn and the Lake House Waterfront Grille where the staff will have you feeling pampered and special.


So get away for a meal or a stay this month. Call Shoreline Inn at 866-727-8483 or visit them on the web at and check out the Lake House Waterfront Grill’s menu at
