DO NOT STAY HERE! We booked this room reluctantly after reading all of the bad reviews, only because we thought the location would be good. That is the only good thing about it. I requested a renovated room in the main building after reading so many negative reviews and was really hoping we wouldn't have a bad experience like everyone... More

I fell in love with the hotel the minute I stepped into the beautiful lobby and met the creaky wood floors beneath my feet then looked up to see the beautiful coffered ceilings, and a grand piano in the corner plus sweet old Buddy their 4 legged grey bearded black lab who greeted us with affection. The staff was very... More

My husband and I have stayed here at least three times before, the last time being in 2009, which I believe is before the new ownership and renovation. Don't get me wrong--I love the look of the Inn, especially around Christmastime when the lobby is decorated beautifully. The women at the front desk were VERY nice, professional, hospitable. We stayed... More

We did not stay here, but ate Thanksgiving buffet here. The food was excellent and they had everything you could think of eating. Many different vegetables, choice of breads, biscuits or rolls and desserts to add pounds to your weight.

Had a wonderful weekend with friends at this charming historical Inn. Cudo's to all of the happy, helpful, harmonious staff, especially Sabrina, Chris and Floyd. They treated us like family. We will definately be returning, especially on a 4th Sunday of the month to experience Sabrina's Gospel Music Group in the lobby!!!! This Historical Inn is on the beautiful Lake... More

The salmon salad was delicious. Everything was set up perfectly and aesthetically before our arrival. The servers efficiently & invisibly served and took care of everyone's drinks and requests discretely throughout the program. No sound issues, tablecloths are crisp & spotless,

Just like the old charming inn in Yellowstone, or the Hotel Del Coronado, or you name any old fashioned charming historic place with lots of character.. stay home if you need a big bathroom & wifi everywhere. Want rocking chairs overlooking the lake from the porch, amazingly happy and coordinated staff, and a perfect location in small town America, walking... More

Beautiful location, and building. Room are OK. No elevator. No central heat; just a small space heater. Walls have little or no sound insulation, so noise can be a problem. Bath was OK, but not the best. Rate was semi-reasonable.
