As a bus tour group we stopped here on our way to the airport. A very enjoyable meal. We were well served by Stehan whose service was impeccable. The food was very good and served quickly despite the restaurant being busy.

We had a reservation for a deluxe suite with a jacuzzi, upon arrival they told us that there were none left even though we had reserved one over the phone with them directly. After this I asked "what is the point of a reservation if you don't get what you asked for?" They replied, "It's been busy". They did not... More

Renovations to our home finally hit the critical stage, forcing my wife and me to look for alternative accommodations. We had enjoyed eating at Inn on the Lake on various occasions but had not stayed at the inn. We were pleasantly surprised by the comfort and cleanliness of room, as well as the overall atmosphere. It is so nice to... More

The Inn on the Lake has everything. Very spacious, comfortable rooms, immaculately clean and well maintained, quiet and warm. Individual climate control and ours had an electric fireplace, bar fridge and microwave. You feel at home here. Spacious park grounds including a small beach and raised wooden gazebos and lots of cozy spots with beach lounges and deck chairs to... More

Upon arrival I walked in to the check in counter and the one person there was on the phone taking a reservation. She did not acknowledge me nor did she make an effort to let me know that she'd either be right me or put the phone on hold and address me. Upon ending the long phone conversation she finally...

Dear Wayne W, Thank you for taking the time to review us. Although it appears you enjoyed most of your stay, we certainly dropped the ball during your check-in process. What you experienced is the opposite of the warm, welcoming attitude we strive to provide to all of our guests. We have spoken with the individual in question and will... More

We stayed at the Inn overnight on the way to our vacation. It's a cozy old place, well fixed up and welcoming. We were treated to hot coffee and muffins for "early bird" on the way to the airport which was a nice touch. When we returned a week later we were picked up by the owner of the Inn,... More
