Room was good had three beds one room which was fine. TV was maybe a 15" very small! Beds were fine air was fine. Bathroom needs some hooks for clothes to hang or a table or shelf for DO, brush, hairspray, toothpaste etc... No place to lay anything. Shower curtain did not keep water in well and shower very dark.... More

We shared the cottage with another family. There were 7 of us total. Plenty of sleeping room. Our boys were playing basbeall at Cooperstown Dreams Park. The drive to the Dreams Park is 27-30 minutes. Gorgeous scenery along route. Fishing was enjoyed off the docks. The view from the upstairs bedroom was amazing. Easy check-in/check-out. Very laid back atmosphere. A... More

This is our 2nd time staying. Always a nice stay. Great dock and viewing area of lake with use of the lake rights. This time we brought our boat and used the dock at the Lake House. Clean room. Old fashioned hotel that has been updated and very clean. Ceiling is the original wainscot from the 1800's, no painted walls,... More

Stayed overnight on a trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Great service, room was very nice and adequate for our needs. Breakfast in the morning was fine. I would definitely stay again. Staff are very well trained and are very helpful.

the pork belly was fantastic. The burger was very RAW inside. The waitress's had no uniforms and looked like they were going to clean house, not wait on tables. The rest room was old The yews had dead branches on them, Burdock was growing by them and binder vines were growing through out the yews. The place looks old and... More

Thanks for your review and comments. Our waitresses wear black and white or black and black- we do not have standardized uniforms. The building is old- built in 1843 and we try to reflect and respect its era with furnishings and lighting. Winter was brutally cold and our yews/evergreens suffered. We have been nursing them back to life- pruning sparingly... More

loud ( noise all night long), dirty, creepy ( knife in the wall outside of our room), no hot water, rusty dock ( not great for letting the kids go swimming in the lake). The staff was accomodating but this place was overall very uncomfortable !

Our goal is that our guests have a friendly, comfortable and memorable stay. We are sorry that you were disappointed. We do spend our days cleaning and our docks are made of wood so they do not rust. so I do apologize for any discrepancies. We all work diligently to accommodate all guests and although we live on premises, did... More

We have been going to the Lake House for years. The first time we went, we fell in love with the hotel itself. It is so welcoming with the wonderful antiques, lighting, hardwood floors, clean rooms, great food and the very friendly staff. We always feel so welcome and that they are actually happy to see us. We are happy... More

My Wife and I recently enjoyed a cozy "International Night" dinner at The Lake House and we were very well cared for. Driving up to The Lake House was very picturesque and upon entering felt the rich character of it's history....A fireplace in the corner of the dining area lends a touch of romance.

Very well run hotel by attentive staff. Good hardworking team that kept everything running smoothly and also served up excellent free breakfast. The price of the room was under 100.00. You can't beat that. I do recommend this hotel.
