From the moment we made our reservations until we departed, the staff was always accomodating. They made us feel welcome and helped us with getting information about local events in the nearby area. We were pleased that the meals at the on-property Tavern were delicious and reasonably priced.

For our 1st wedding anniversary my wife and I stayed at the Sherwood. The positives were the beautiful area and the seafood music festival that day! The negatives were enough we would never come back... When we arrived there was no parking for hotel guests so we had to park 2 blocks away. The room has character but the jacuzzi... More

I have stayed at this hotel for several years running, on Labor Day weekend for the triathlon. It is an old stage coach stop, and the wooden staircases appear to date it to the 1800's. The staff are really excellent and the meals we have had at the on-site restaurant have always been very good and not too expensive either.... More

Stopped by for a Wonderful lunch this past week. Great meal (onion soup was very tasty) and we had great seats overlooking the lake. Had a great lunch finished off with the creme brûlée which was to die for .... Great experience, then wandered across the street and sat in the park to enjoy the afternoon ! Great day !... More

My wife and I visited the Sherwood Inn on 8/23 to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival the Inn was very busy as they were preparing for a wedding event. There were no parking spots for us so the front desk quickly walked out to the parking lot and reserved the first open spot for us. The front desk... More

The staff makes this grand old hotel shine. Everyone - EVERYone - we encountered was accomodating and professional. The hotel itself is quirky - there may not be a ninety degree angle in the entire building - and is everything an old lakeside hotel should be. The decor was in keeping with the age of the hotel, but not in... More

Elegantly poised at the top of lake, this classic Inn is a gem! Built in 1807, the wide pine boards and sloping floors attest to the years of service this Inn has given. It's worn well and appropriate updates make it even more comfortable today. If location is everything this place has it all. Steps from shops and restaurants, an... More

Beautiful hotel with character. We stayed in room 21, excellent view, faces the lake. It had a separate seating area as well. It can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. The reception and wait staff were pleasant. We did eat dinner in the restaurant and that was very good. The continental breakfast was great, very fresh fruit and scones. Cereals... More

The initial impression is of venerable age, and old style comfort. Bendy floor beams, old paintings, creaky floors, wooden everything. Our reception was friendly and the waitresses very helpful and obliging. Breakfast although continental was good. We stayed 2 nights and had 3 rooms between us. The front rooms had wonderful views of the lake and were comfortable and certainly... More

My company hosted a Summer Party for all it's workers + their significant others. Our planned party got washed out by the torrential rain, and the Sherwood Inn graciously accomodated 60+ people for dinner at the last minute. The servers and hosts were all gracious and polite, and it was an overall great experience! The atmosphere was wonderful and the... More
