Right next to the harbor, the view on the lakeside rooms is exceptional. A bit too cold in early April for us to enjoy it but that doesn't prevent us from thinking about how beautiful it would be to sit outside on the balcony watching summer boats. Room was quite comfortable, nice bathroom. Amenities were as expected in a 3... More

This is a nice property to enjoy the lake right at your doorstep. Don't overlook the restaurant that has wonderful food. This trip was off season so the outdoor pool and bar were not open yet, but the indoor pool and bar were great!

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to give feedback on your most recent stay. Although there may have been some confusion at check-in on only a certain room "type" that was sold-out, or the lack of empathy in the apology given at check-out, there is no doubt your stay was not an enjoyable one due to the now...

I was really surprised by the atmosphere here. When you walk into the front lobby, it's very beautiful and clean. Our room had a nice TV and everything was clean. My girlfriend is basically a clean freak and she checks all kinds of things when we first get in a hotel room. The Inn on the lake passed with flying... More
