We booked a suite for the week of the 4th of July, arriving Sunday and staying thru Thursday. The room was spacious, clean, and has a very comfortable bed. I nice benefit of the suite is there a door which separates the bed room for the living area, which has a sofa couch, so those who want to stay up... More

My experience at the Inn on the Lake was unlike any other. Although this may have been because it was my sister's wedding, the entire atmosphere of the property was beyond phenomenal. The staff was outstanding and the scenery was breathtaking! We were lucky and had 75 degree and sunny weather the entire weekend. The outside bar was a hit... More

A family member booked this resort for our family reunion after they spent a weekend at the Inn, and although it was nice, it is a little pricier than I like. It also was BUSY! They had 2 weddings there for the weekend, as well as the normal summer guests. The parking lot was consistently busy and it was hard... More

This is a great wedding destination. If you are not visiting for this, beware the weekends are busy. We were there during the week and on the weekend. It is the only hotel on the lake. Lakeside view is a must. Make your reservations for a lakeside room early. Triple A and AARP discount of 10 percent. Kitchenette was nice... More

We were fortunate to be assigned a lake view room. The Inn itself is older, and while an attempt is made to keep it fresh, you can tell it is a little dated. The doors of the room and bath room had dents and dings. The doors dividing areas were stainless steel and glass, dated. The bed was comfy, everything... More

We spent the weekend here for a wedding. The wedding- outdoors by the lake & reception were flawless. As were all the other little details that kept the weekend going. The food was good. My biggest complaint was that the room was VERY small, though it was comfortable. The setting & views were amazing.

You can't beat the lakefront rooms, however, if you go in June like we did, this is when they do their landscaping, and everything smelled like manure! Luckily they have a lot of seating available right at the water's edge, away from the landscaped areas. Also, small birds like to nest right above the room patios, which is not pleasant.... More

We live about an hour and a half away from here and decided on a weekend getaway. We book a suite that was not facing the lake-but had a canal view that was nice watching the boats go by. The room was dated and the furniture a bit worn-it was spacious, clean and very comfortable. You may not want to... More

My husband stayed here for one night while we were in town for a Tim McGraw concert. We drove from Falmouth Massachusetts and found this to be so easy to find off of Interstate 90. Reception was quick and friendly and did not hesitate to mention the steps they took in preparing our room to our special requests for allergy... More
