My boyfriend and I have stayed at the LakeFront Inn numerous times and loved it! All the rooms we've stayed in have beautiful views, a luxurious feel, and of course Diane is a kind, fun, and absolutely delightful person! Breakfast is tasty, well-plated, and the staff are friendly/helpful too. This visit we went on a private wine tour, which they... More

I am amazed at any of the bad reviews of this place, are you sure you stayed at the same place?? Not only was everything eclectic and unique, it was clean and beautifully attuned to any welcoming open minded traveler. Diane and Peggy were amazing hosts and took very good care of my girlfriend and myself. The views are breathtaking... More

My wife and i just got back from a short vacation. We were surprised by the place, website and photos doesnt really reflect the place authenticity and serenity. Its not a 5 stars hotel , but its like 10 stars when it comes to staff.

This was a great experience. The owner was not there a lot so it gave you the personal space that you would want when going to a Bed and Breakfast, but if you had any questions she was always available by phone. I usually am a picky person when it comes to places that I stay at, but this was... More

Where to begin? We made last minute reservations based on the photos. They were so misleading. We arrived and called Diana to let her know. She said someone would be there in 40 minutes to greet us. Almost 2 hours later we called again. We weren't comfortable entering and wandering around a 'home' we'd not been too before. Like other... More

We could have probably overlooked the cluttered, unkempt environment if there had been air conditioning but without A/C in close to 90 degree weather and high humidity it was impossible. The B&B did not come close to living up to the pictures on the website. The lake is at least a mile or more away so I would not call... More

I actually stayed at LF Inn 2 awhile ago. My husband and I wanted to do the wine trail and I thought it would be fun to stay at a B&B. When first speaking to Diane (owner), she booked us at the original property(they say a picture can be deceiving) After a three hour drive arriving at the property was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Lakefront Inn 2 for our 1 year anniversary trip. We stayed in the Premiere room, and it was BEAUTIFUL! We had our own private balcony overlooking the lake, and I don't think we could have been in a better location. The room was clean, smelled fresh, and very comfortable. We even had an... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at this B & B in mid-May. We were fortunate enough to have the place to ourselves for the first two nights of our three-night stay, which is likely unusual during peak periods and weekends. It was just what we were looking for – a place to relax in lovely, very clean, comfortable surroundings... More

If you enjoy the predictability of a good hotel chain, do not book here. The Lakefront Inn is a thoroughly unique vacation property; it will knock your socks off. It's actually one of two inns owned by the same woman. My husband and I spent two wonderful nights at the original The Lakefront Inn. It was magnificent. For one thing,... More
