Stay in September 2014 was not too bad. It sure is an old hotel and right beside a busy highway. We we're given two breakfast coupons with a value of $13.00 each. This was for the so called FREE breakfast. Don't exceed the allotted amount or you will pay the extra. My complaint is that we didn't get breakfast because... More

Dear Walter M, It appears we have a misunderstanding on what services are included with the rental of a room at the Inn and we experienced a break down in communications. The Inn is not obligated to offer free breakfast to any guests. We do not advertise or promote free meals. As a courtesy to guests who are leaving before... More

great facility....we got a room that opened onto the pool area......supper outside on the deck....a lovely room.......unfortunately there is a noticeable dim from the highway traffic (but that should not be considered a showstopper)

Great, helpful, friendly staff. Comfortable room with high quality evident, totally clean with the nice extra touches that rival 5 star hotels. One of the most comfortable beds, excellent bathroom and even the carpet was a pleasure to walk on! Few places have impressed us as much as this hotel. Highly recommended and won't disappoint.

We stayed here for one night in July and truly enjoyed it. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and it's so quiet on the balcony it's hard to believe you are near a highway. The restaurant is upscale and has a wonderful selection. The Seafood chowder was so creamy and the Halibut was done perfectly.... More

We just love it here. The rooms are clean and neat. The food and staff are amazing. We only had one concern and that was that they said they were wheel chair accessible but it meant using an exit door which you had to get someone to come and open and when you wanted to go to the restaurant you...

Just outside of Dartmouth is this romantic property. Every room has a hot tub and most have a fireplace and balcony. The restaurant features upscale dining and please, try the mussels! Theres only two floors so an elevator is not needed. They don't have many rooms so it feels private and walks along the lake are very romantic. My wife... More

Stayed here a few times over the years and it's been consistently good. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the rooms are good, well appointed and you can usually get a good night's sleep.
