We stayed one night at the Inn on the Lake. We were at the New York Wine and Culinary Institute next door and planned to try all their beers that night. The Inn was in walking distance. The hotel was clean, well lit and the folks at the front were great. We relish quiet surroundings, and they were just that.... More

We had a great time at The Inn on the Lake. The view from our room was beautiful. Nice little town to explore. They have a full service restaurant. The staff at the front desk was very helpful when asked for shopping tips.

After a long hard business day, this was the relaxation I needed. I was able to upgrade to a lake view and it was definitely worth the little extra cost. The front desk staff was nice. The room was nice with a sitting area, bath, bedroom and a deck overlooking the lake. Beautiful area. Able to walk around the lake.... More

We stayed here during a recent vacation with another couple. We chose a room with a lake view. The room was clean and comfortable, but still needs some improvements. There was no exhaust fan in the bathroom which seems to be damaging the bath side of the doors. We loved the view and the exterior seating just outside the door... More
