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.

The staff overall is pleasant and accommodating with one very serious exception... The woman now charged with coordinating weddings. Not one time did she check in with us throughout the entire weekend. Things that were supposed to be taken care of that were conveyed in writing weeks earlier were not addressed; basic questions were not answered and all blame for... More

Thank you for your review and the compliments to our property and staff. Your wedding was absolutely beautiful and was executed flawlessly. Our on site events director is not a wedding coordinator. They are the liaison to the team, they communicate with our culinary and service staff to insure a flawless day from start to finish. Our team is dedicated... More

The new on sight owners have restored this gem. The lounge, lobby, rooms, views, grounds, food, service and atmosphere transform guests to a by-gone era. Walk to bars, taverns boutiques, ride the train, fly in a Beaver sea plane from the Inn dock and marvel at charming Mt. Dora. Not to be missed unless you gotta have the Ritz again

We were due to stay three nights but left after only one. The bathroom was a disgrace; dirty with plumbing you could hear not only from adjacent rooms but from other rooms on the other side of the corridor. With major problems with water hammer in the piping it sounded like WW3 had started every time the toilet was flushed... More

This particular guest did leave early without penalty on a sold out weekend along with an adjustment to his bill in hope that some form of satisfaction had been reached. It never ceases to amaze me how two different guests can stay in the exact same room and have two completely different experiences and opinions. The tendency from negative guests... More
