We had a lovely, comfortable room on the third floor with a balcony over looking the lake. One night, we had dinner on the balcony. Very enjoyable, very comfortable furniture with a wonderful view. We kept the balcony door open when we were in the room for fresh air - a hotel treat. Even though they are on the highway... More

We have been traveling for 3 weeks plus by the time we reached this grand place. We tried for the main sherwood inn but all the rooms were taken, in the end this was the better choice for us, more updated. It is a short walk to the main hotel and the good dinning there along with the morning breakfast.... More

You can park on the street to check in at Sherwood, as you will be directed to the parking garage after you have checked in and... More

The Packwood House is a sister property of the Sherwood Inn right down the street. We read the reviews and chose this property due to comments and the more modern look of the amenities, as opposed to the more historical Sherwood Inn. And the only reason we chose modern over the old style inn was that we often stay in... More

We just love this place and stay here when we really want to celebrate. It has a wonderful view of the lake and the rooms have been updated and are really nice. We can't wait to stay there again. Just a lovely place to stay.

This hotel is s group of rooms associated with the Sherwood Inn 2 buildings away on the same side of the street. The accommodations are first class with all new furnishings. While it does not have the charm of the 1807 Sherwood Inn, it is more comfortable with new furnishings and larger room. The free breakfast is available at the... More

Recent stay for my wife and I. 3 days in this quaint, picture post card little town on the lake. It is like going back in time, band plays in the park on Friday pm, only 1 chain store in town, and some great food. People are actually friendly, shops are lovely. We will stay there again as we visit... More

No rooms at the historic Sherwood inn so we were put just a half block away at their property- thenewly redone Packwood house. Lucky for us to be "relegated" to this location because we were surprised by A very nicely done room with an upscale looking upholstered headboard, soft linens and a tile and granite bathroom. The room felt like... More
