My girlfriend and I recently stayed in the Montcalm suite and were completely blown away by the level of service and attention to detail the Inn staff displayed as soon as we entered the front door. Every staff member catered to our every need and nothing was overlooked. Even the chef came to fix the fireplace in our room when... More

A few years ago we had a wonderful experience at the Inn of Erlowest where we celebrated our mother's 95th birthday. The staff, the meal and the experience were all excellent. This past Christmas vacation my husband, myself and my adult (20 something) children stopped in and asked if we could see the rooms in anticipation of another family reunion... More

My apologies for taking so long to respond to your concern regarding our ability to tour the building and show you the rooms. I believe that I have backtracked the timeline to understand why our stay would have been reluctant to show our rooms. It was surprising to me to read about you experience since the activity that our front... More

I had to be at the Inn for a local event for The Chamber Of Commerce. While there, I was fortunate enough to have a tour through the Inn itself. The suites, themselves are beautiful beyond belief. It would be hard to choose which one to stay in. The delightful woman, that took us through the suites, brought each and... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. The people who work there are very friendly and the rooms are lovely. The restaurant had very good gourmet food. I was looking for something more intimate than a hotel but not as close as staying in a tiny bed and breakfast, and this was a great middle ground.

We were coming off a cruise from NYC on the way back to Ottawa and I wanted to break up the drive back. I found The Inn on booking.com and made reservations.

the lake view room with separate sitting area was so wonderful that it would it earn an excellent rating on its own, but add in the staff and the service and the genuine concern for their guests and you have moved into a category well above excellent.

The Inn is just an excellent experience. Great people, great service, great accommodations, and great food. The rooms are exquisite and the people are so accommodating it makes you sorry you have to leave. I'd recommend it to anyone. Our stay there was a10, in all respects.
