I have stayed in this inn during all seasons and I honestly can't pick a favourite. Each one is different and beautiful in its own way. The inn always surprises me with its latest renovation which is always tastefully done with great detail to quality and its environment. The staff and management are committed to making sure your stay is... More

Overall a good trip. Our second stay at this property. The facility is impeccably clean, excellent hotel service. The location on the lake can't be beat and is the real draw to this establishment. Overall the food was excellent. We stayed in a 'Luxe' room which was very nice. Excellent beds. Previously we stayed in a Superior room which we... More

I bought a ticket from Tuango for this hotel. I was really expecting an unforgettable weekend but I came back home after the first night...We had room #16, which is beside the lobby. We heard everything, every sound all night long!?! Did we sleep?? NO!! We also had a very bad service from the receptionist «Dominic»... When I talked to... More

I was very surprised to read your comments on Trip Advisor following our telephone conversation shortly after your departure. I had explained to you that as your room was located adjacent to the reception, the reason for the voices during the night emanating from the front desk was due to our training of a new night auditor. I apologized for... More

Only spent one night at the Inn back in June of 2014, very beautiful setting. Gave a good deal for the room, a little disappointed did not have a balcony. Very close to the hot tub, and they provided bathrobes as well. The pool very nice clean. Views of the lake were lovely. We had a drink outside when we... More

So beautiful and relaxing. I had a facial at the spa, then soaked in the jacuzzi by the lake. Dinner was delicious and the menu is filled with local delights. There is a little salon with a fireplace that smells wonderfully of burnt wood. A great spot fr a bit of reading or enjoying a drink. This was in September,... More
