This hotel has four choices for a wheelchair accessible room. Some lake view, some beach side, ours was a king bed room in the back, no view, but a bit less expensive and nice and dark for sleeping. Good sized room, had decent turning radius on one side of the bed. The Bathroom was large and had great handrails. The... More

The restaurant inside the hotel has poor service and mediocre food. We waited 40 min for our appetizer to show after ordering. The waitress also forgot to place the order for one of the meals. I would avoid ordering the bruschetta unless you like iceberg lettuce and soggy bread.

This hotel is located right on the lake with a nice sandy beach right outside the beachfront rooms. The weather was perfect while we were there (June 2014) and the sunsets on the lake were breathtaking! That being said, there were a few issues which may be something to consider before booking your room. First, the food is wonderful--we had... More

Great place to stay. The first night we were there they had a awesome band in the bar. The next day the weather was beautiful and we were able to have coffee on our balcony which was awesome and then went down and ate breakfast outside.

Good location, just out of town. Restaurant, bar and pool right on site. Nice beach, outdoor dining/bar in the summer. No need to go anywhere else to relax. Pick your weekends carefully in the winter as there are snowmobile races and hockey players to contend with.
