Just returned from an awesome overnight at Erlowest. Would have loved to stay longer. The staff was most attentive and the food was incredible. We were greeted with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, cheese, etc. This place is soooo restful. Each room has its own decorated theme. Since we were celebrating a birthday, everyone went out of their way to make... More

For my daughter's birthday her father and I gave her and her husband an overnight at the Inn while we watched their 20 month old for his first sleepover. The week before their trip, an email was sent asking if they would like to make a dinner reservation, telling them the chef was aware of my son-in-law's dietary restrictions, and... More

This was our second stay at the Inn at Erlowest, but we brought along friends who had never been there. Aside from a small glitch in how our special packages were booked, the staff happily took care of the problem upon our check-in. Every one of the suites is magnificent and this time we had the Montcalm Suite while our... More

There's always coffee and little cakes in thee dining area. And the most yummy cream of mushroom soup in a big silver Turin. The rooms are posh..with a cheese nut and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Horicon room. We had originally booked a room with a fireplace but asked to switch rooms to have a jacuzzi tub instead. There was no trouble upgrading and it was totally worth it. The tub was very relaxing. We opted to have dinner in the dining room. The staff is very friendly and... More

The Inn is beautiful, the rooms are exactly what you would expect, the staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and there to help with whatever you might need. Breakfast was very good and there were no issues with deviating from the menu. We had dinner both Friday and Saturday night and this was our only issue. Both nights were just OK. On... More
