Depending on what you are looking for and which room/cottage you stay in, this property could be mediocre or fabulous. It may not be for everyone, but we enjoyed it very much. The setting cannot be beat. The grounds are very well maintained and there are numerous trails through old growth forest along and across Barnes Creek and to Marymere Falls. The lodge is just wonderful with its large stone fireplace, gift shop, bar and light snack area, dining room and huge sun porch. The beach and dock area are liberally dotted with picnic tables and Adirondack chairs. The accommodations are a bit mixed. We stayed in one of the Singer Tavern Cottages. It was clean and the linens were fresh, had a small refrigerator and coffee machine (with Starbucks coffee), lots of seating including comfortable chairs on the porch which looked out on the lake. Walls are thin and some of the furniture was worn. For us, the setting made up for it and we were okay with the trade-offs. However, next time we will stay in one of the Roosevelt cottages which are right on the beach, much more private and better furnished including a fireplace. The restaurant was excellent for dinner, but only so-so for breakfast. Staff members were friendly, professional, helpful and knowledgeable without exception. We will definitely return and would recommend this place to others who are looking for pristine wilderness areas, a well kept historic property, and spectacular scenery.
