What a darling little place. Absolutely beautiful grounds. Flowers galore! The paddle boats on Robinson Lake were quite popular. AND -> Banana Splits!!! Cute game room and nice little walking trail. It is a true getaway. If you need modern, go somewhere else. If you want a little vacation break, this is perfect!

We had a room with hottub and fireplace. Dinner and banana splits were in the evening and breakfast in the morning. Beautiful setting on a lake when paddle boats are provided. You can also walk in the woods along the lake. The little touches made it extra special, like hot chocolate and popcorn in our room. Decorated beautifully.

Room was nice, quiet and well kept. What you would expect for a lakeside getaway. My whole experience was ruined when I went to check out. When I asked if they offered a military discount, the clerk had the audacity to make sure I was "active duty" (apparently a military ID isn't enough) and then told me I "sure don't... More

To say this is a B&B is not a true description. It is more like a rustic resort. The buildings are all wood (log cabin) materials. There are several buildings and the property is used for church groups and business retreats. My room was very nice...spacious, comfortable, and well furnished. The location is gorgeous, a great place to getaway. I... More

Plain and Simple. For a $10 buffet, it was very good. I wouldn't say it's gourmet food, but it was good for the price. The roast was tender and cooked very good. The chicken was slightly dry but the gravy made up for it. The place absolutely gets 6 out of 5 stars for scenery though. You can't get better... More

My husband and I stayed here for a little weekend away. The staff was very friendly, food decent, beautiful property, and plenty to do! We enjoyed playing in the game rooms, fishing, and relaxing in the glider overlooking the lake. We cannot wait to go back next year! If you're looking for a fancy place to stay, find somewhere else...... More

Stayed here one night for my Birthday. Had a new room with Hot Tub and Fireplace in the Livery, very nice and roomy and very quiet. Hot Tub was very nice for two people. Dinner was included one night which was OK but lacked choices and did not taste like a home cooked meal which leads me too the Breakfast... More

This is our third winter stop in The Shack Inn B&B. We spent a couple of nights in December. This hotel is perfect for retreating away from the world and disconnect. It is also beautifully maintained and they serve banana split every night at 8:30 PM. Their Xmas decorations makes one feel at home. If you are lucky, the owner... More

Situated on a small lake, very scenic. Nice well kept ground and some hiking trails. Offers nice rooms with breakfast. Also offer evening meals. Nightly banana splits. Grounds have shelters for group cookouts, a nice little museum and in general quiet and tranquil.

The rooms look great online but we got stuck in an upstairs room in the same building as the dining hall. It's the smallest room I have ever seen! There is no coffee, no microwave, the shower is a half size shower, and the bed is as hard as a rock. My back is killing me from just a power... More
