Enjoyed our room but service lacked on our visit. We stayed on a Monday night only to find out the restaurant and bar is closed on Mondays so we had no food options available except a snack bar up the road. The real issue was the lack of interest by the staff. Didn't seem to care about the lack of... More

Free use of kayaks and canoes at the beach. Nice bar. Great food. Pleasant service. View to kill for. Nice room. I stayed in the Courtyard Room, which is around back. I stayed there because it is cheap and I was alone. It has an optional private entrance, and is handicap accessible. I found myself hanging out on the front... More

We spent 5 days over the July 4th holiday in the Gov. Aiken's room on the first floor with a lovely deck and great views of Lake Willoughby. The jacuzzi tub was heaven after a long hike up Mt. Pisgah. The inn is welcoming with friendly staff and excellent dining. Great place for a couples retreat or place to get... More

Lake Willoughby is so beautiful that you could stay in a corrugated metal shed and still love your time here. Even if you think you've seen it all, this place's beauty will leave you speechless. Thankfully, the Willoughvale is not a metal shed; it's beautiful. We stayed in the Robert Frost lakefront cottage, which had a commanding view of the... More

We stayed in the Pisgah Cottage, right on Lake Willoughby. It was amazing sleeping with the windows open; hearing the waves on the dock and feeling the cool breeze. We brought our dog and were all happy hiking and getting out onto the lake. Everything was clean and well maintained. We had dinner in the inn one night and had... More

This was our second stay at the Inn. We booked a room in the front with a great view of Lake Willoughyby. No outside noise in room which was clean and ready for us. due to type of trip we did not have an opportunity to visit to dine in the restaurant. Staff is friendly.
