Village of Lakeside

Lake Michigan Lakeshore Resorts

At the turn of the century, Lakeside was home to some of the most famous Lake Michigan lakeshore resorts, Lakesides history, like its Harbor Country sister towns, began with logging that fed nearby Chicago’s insatiable need for lumber. Farming soon replaced the disappearing forests to keep the land lush and green. This rural lakeshore fostered the next economic chapter as a popular vacation destination for nearby Chicagoans beginning in the early 1920’s. The Lakeside Inn is probably the village’s most romantic site. Movie stars were wined and dined there. And during Prohibition, the tale goes; Al Capone along with a variety of Chicago politicians used the Inn as a favorite drinking and gambling spot. Today Lakeside is a much sought after location for vacationers and second home residents alike to enjoy this historic and quaint little village offering many unique shops, galleries and exceptional Lake Michigan Beaches.
