At $135 a night, our bed was uncomfortable, we didn't have any view from our window, no television, no alarm clock...not even a hair dryer. The walls are super thin, and we heard everything our neighbours said both at night (ahem) and in the morning. We stayed in Room #7.
Despite it being a beautiful day/evening, the pool closed at 6PM. At 5:50 someone came out to tell us it was closing...why? There was still sun and it was warm. There was no issue of a lifeguard being on duty. It was inconvenient, and unfortunate.
It is NOT on the lake-the lake is not even visible. You have to cross the street, walk down another small street, and you arrive at a dock the inn shares with others. If you want to use the canoe they have available, get in line. There is only one.
The restaurant was excellent. Don't bother considering the Table d'hôte, however. All it saves you is the price of a cup of coffee. We had terrine of elk, and cornish game hen on a corn pancake. Both very tasty. The duck we had for a main course was a little dry, but the sauce served with it was excellent.
