My friend and I came here for 3 days and 2 nights in mid-April as a girls weekend getaway. I happened across the inn on the internet and thought I'd try it. Everyone was so friendly, welcoming, and professional. We stayed at the inn and our room was adorable. It was so clean and much nicer than most hotels! The... More

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.

Congratulations again on your birthday and I am so tickled that you spent the time with us! I’m so glad that you appreciated the beauty of the lake even when it is not summer. There is something so peaceful and awe inspiring in seeing the lake frozen and the animals that walk the ice from the state park! Thank you... 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
