Got a coupon on line offering a great deal for 2 nite stay. Not the bustling area I remember from last visit in July, but was nice and quiet for couple of retirees. The deal was great it offered a breakfast each morning (and well worth it), a 3 course dinner with bottle of wine (wonderful meal), wine tasting, and... More

I had my spring wedding here for about 45 people and I cannot say enough about the place. Perfect venue for a small wedding. Accommodations are quaint and clean, everything is close together, food and wine are excellent. The entire staff was extremely accommodating as we set up my wedding and while my husband and I stayed after. It was... More

My husband and I were delighted with our first visit. The staff was friendly and professional. Our room was clean and comfortable and the food at Crosswinds Grille was excellent. We relaxed with a visit to the spa, my husband enjoyed a massage and I enjoyed a facial. We will certainly return. Susan Gralak

Bought this as a gift in my husband's stocking and it was the best gift he got! We stayed in one of the cottages. It wasn't fancy but it was really homey and the bed was terrific.

This was my first time traveling without a companion, so I was a bit nervous wondering how uncomfortable I would be. I had traveled from Boston to watch my daughter compete in her last year at the Atlantic 10 championships held at Spire. I stayed 4 nights, and my time flew by! I wasn't lonely at all! Everyone was genuine,... More

My wife and I just spent two days at the Lakehouse Inn. It was -23 degrees while we were there and we typically think of this as a summer destination. With that being said, our cottage was cute and comfortable. Our meal at their restaurant was excellent and their wines were really quite good. My wife went to the spa... More

My husband and I stayed this past weekend for our anniversary in Cottage number 2. It was a very relaxing, quiet weekend full of R&R. Once we arrived on Friday, we didn't leave the property until we checked out on Sunday. The Cottage was nice, comfortable and large enough for us to unwind. We really felt at home there. My... More

We stayed in a suite. Very comfortable and homey. Beautiful accommodations. Our suite did not have the best view (parking lot), but we arrived after dark so not a problem. Great location to visit several of the local winerys.
