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.

Arrived late Friday night, had a great prime rib dinner in the restaurant along with a few drinks at the bar overlooking the lake. Our rooms had a patio right on the beach of the lake. Gorgeous view! Management and staff were friendly and curteous throughout our entire stay.

We stayed here September of 2013. The hotel is right on the lake, with nice sandy beach, and plenty of docking space. Had a great view of the lake and the room was clean and modern. Staff was very friendly, from the front desk to the restaurant. The restaurant and bar are overlooking the lake. There is an outdoor patio... More

Great hotel which is accessible by land, water, or air. The Midwestern hospitality was evident throughout the property. The front desk people were very friendly as were the restaurant staff and the beach staff. The restaurant is a very good value and the menu goes beyond the typical burgers and brats, they great pasta, salads and fantstic omlets. This property... More

Spent two nights here recently. Had a king room with the whirlpool tub. The room and whirlpool were spacious. The bathroom was a little small but that was not important.
