I had two different reps tell me my reservation cost and full price for the first night. The lady taking my card told me the price she was charging me for night one to reserve and I agreed. My bank account had a charge for $50 more than each rep and the online advertisement quoted me. The reservation manager told... More

This was the best priced place I could find. It is right across from the lake, a quick walk to a cute ice cream place. They are super nice at check in/out. They offer fun freebees like bikes and kayaks. You have to give props to their maid service because our room was spotless!! They are remodeling and the new... More

I was in town for business and Ashley put me in a wonderful room in Squirrel Lodge at the back of the property with a nice view of the lake. Charming, comfortable, affordable, great location, wonderful staff... I'll definitely be back!

We arrived Thursday and had almost the entire place to ourselves - a lovely, beautifully decorated cabin-style king-sized bed with mini fridge, tv and microwave. Everything was clean, the place was 2 min walk to the water, and nestled back in the trees at the same time. The staff was friendly and amenable. The only downside was the pool and... More

We booked the entire inn for 3 days for my daughter's wedding and had a wonderful experience. We used the multiple parking areas to set up tents for the wedding and reception site. We had room for all the family, (including a large group from Peru), the friends, and multiple dogs! The staff was incredibly helpful. A great time was... More

Price was good for this resort destination. It is close to the beach, across a busy road, but within a short walk. The room was sizeable, and furnishings fairly new. But there were some things that were less than ideal at my Squirrel House deluxe king room. Ceiling pot lights weren't located where they could do much good. To get... More

I would rate this property a 3.5 for a few reasons. The pluses were Ashley at the front desk and the maid whose prompt & efficient service were excellent when my original room was not going to work for me. My Original Room was #140 which while newly renovated, it is directly below another larger room that was occupied by... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for sharing your detailed experience! You had been shown the second accommodation and approved of the room switch, which did not require an additional charge. Fortunately both room types were the same rate regardless of the variation in renovation. We continually strive to meet the needs of any of our guests, including yours, and we... More

A cute little inn by the lake with nice new furnishings (especially shower and the bed). Great for the price Just one star off for the hairball found in the shower and the splinter I got from the bed.
