Upon arrival they did not have record of my reservations, just the one I had cancelled via Booking.com (I had to cancel and rebook, because our travel date changed by one day, so when I rebooked I booked directly through their website so I could reserve a lakeside room), but luckily there were vacancies and we were still able to...

Absolutely beautiful picturesque postcard setting with lake & evergreen mountain backdrop. Amazing hosts with accommodating, professional wait staff. First class service. Wonderful event center for wedding, party, family gathering, BBQ, etc. Boating, swimming, fishing on lake right out your room. Perfectly maintained. Rooms have that country charm, but are impeccable. Full breakfast & kayak included. Maryann & Peter are the... More

We were very happy with our lake view room. The accommodations were clean, and the service was what made it so nice. The owners Peter and Maryanne are constantly working and cleaning so the place reflects their vigilant attention. I have a few complaints about some of the uncaring guests and day users, but there isn't any control over irresponsible... More

The sky and lake were blue the day we stayed and the weather a perfect summer morning. We were happy to watch the ducks and appreciated the graciousness of Peter the owner and the seemingly happy gals who work here. It's over-priced, however, for the oldish but nicely decorated 40's size vacation lodging even if the back door at the... More

The owners, Mary Anne and Peter, were wonderful hosts. Leilani and I will most assuredly be back as we have every year. The lake here is beautiful and so are the boat rides. The resort is pet friendly and places to eat are everywhere.

This is still a family driven hotel: Maryanne and Peter are so kind and helpful. We felt like friends right from the beginning of our stay. Our room was waterfront and we enjoyed a beautiful view over the lake. Room was very clean and bright. The hotel has its own lake access. There is no beach but you can get... More

We had a great time here celebrating our 7th anniversary with our 4 & 2 year olds & 6 month old jack russell. The room was spotless & the one we were given was on the end, so slightly more roomy than others. Our room had 2 queens which was much appreciated, full beds with restless sleepers are no fun....

They call this a "resort:" and tout the Porsche Club visiting, which makes it sound like a luxury resort. All the photos are taken at angles that make things look expansive, and they cut out the RV park directly across from them on the lake side. The inn sits at the end of the lake on the tiny connector between... More

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are pleased that the bed was comfortable and that the room cleanliness and amenities were very good. The continental breakfast is prepared each morning with fresh eggs that are not prepackaged or precooked. We would have gladly prepared your eggs again if we had known you didn't find them delicious. We urge guests... More
