Imagine a cozy cedar lodge nestled under majestic pines rising from pink granite, all at the water’s edge. This is Westwind Inn, a third generation family-owned and operated business, open year-round.
With over one-quarter mile of scenic natural waterfront, an 80-foot lakefront deck, 200 feet of boardwalk, and 400 feet of docks and boat launch, Westwind Inn is ideal for small weddings, conferences, group retreats, or a reunion. A total of 36 rooms are available for exclusive use.
This past year the inn saw many new upgrades including hardwood floors and walk-in showers throughout the 31 room main lodge. An infinity lap pool is located on the 2nd floor of the chalet with windows overlooking Lower Buckhorn Lake.
The cozy lodge rooms also come with a sofa, fireplace, a walk-out to the balcony, and a large bathroom, many with a heart-shaped jet tub. The Chalet, the location of all
upgraded honeymoon suites, features a four-poster bed, pine floors and cedar ceilings, a jet tub, and a balcony. These are private and secluded, a world away from the main lodge.
The lobby is stunning, with soaring cathedral ceilings, a baby grand piano, and comfortable sofa and chairs. It is the perfect place to read a book or enjoy a cup of coffee. Self-serve coffee and tea are always available in the Kitchenette.
You can wake up to the call of the loon, watch the sunrise and sunset over the lake, follow nature trails, cozy up in hammocks for two among the pines, and feel the sand between your toes on the beach. And in winter, you can go cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in a spectacular wilderness setting. Go skating or ice fishing, and warm yourself by a fireplace.
Many have even heard wolves howl in the distance. Book your stay today for a chance to see the wildlife that visits the Westwind Inn’s shore. Better yet, see the gorgeous sights from the water on one of the inn’s new boat cruises.
Westwind Inn also offers complimentary activities—canoes, kayaks, rowboats, pedal boats, bikes, an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, putting green, driving net and sand trap, badminton, volleyball, horseshoes and more.
Relax and do as little or as much as you wish. When you are ready to eat, visit our superb lakefront dining with a panoramic view of the lake.
If you enjoy daytrips, Buckhorn and the surrounding area offer wonderful attractions. Explore quaint villages, galleries and shops. Enjoy lunch by the water’s edge in one the many restaurants or pubs.
The quiet beauty of this lakeside setting offers the perfect atmosphere for guests.
