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.

This place is wonderful. My husband and I have stayed there twice now. Both times in the main house. Yes the rooms and bathrooms are small, it's an old charming house that is gorgeous. The room is plenty big enough to relax in, sleep in and change in. Also you have the option of going out into the main room... More

Wow---flashback to the 40's??!! There was only one heating vent in the living room which was adorned with an old couch, a chair with a slip cover, a table from the 40's and 4 captain chairs from maybe the 70's. Windows in kitchen and living room had no blinds or drapes. Old brown, stained carpet was throughout but the place... More

Dear Jane, I was somewhat surprised by your review until I read the whole thing. It seems like you are a very seasoned traveler and used to hotel accommodations. You would be surprised, but we had a professional interior decorator assist us and revamp the very same cottage that you didn't like. This was done about a year and a... More

We had a wonderful New Year's Eve at this lovely Inn. The room was a little small but it was clean and comfy. The service was great and the restaurant was wonderful. We will definitely return in the summer.

Dear Jennifer, I am so glad that you enjoyed New Year’s Eve with us and that you were cozy and comfortable.

We stayed at the Lakehouse for my husbands birthday. It was a wonderful stay, breakfast were great, and the 3 course dinner wast absolutely fabulous. This was our second stay within a few months. We stayed in cottage one, and would stay there again. It was very spacious, and comfortable. Looking forward to going back again!

The room was small, but cozy and clean. We were very near the lake, just a short walk away. We just stayed one night, but would like to return when we could stay longer. The room came with breakfast included and it was served across the sidewalk in a dining area that had a view of the lake.
