I was traveling with my sister who found a great deal for the end of season on travelzoo.com For a fantastic price we received four hours of biking, two night stay, fifty dollar dining credit and a 1/2 pound of fudge.
The weather was not ideal while we were there, but we still enjoyed the four hours of biking around the island. There are about 3/4 of the sites still open this late in the season and there are great deals on souvenirs!
The hotel was out of many things--as it was the end of season--but they were very good about accommodating us. They pick up and deliver your luggage from the ferry. There is even a swimming pool and hot tub on site. They light chimeras out on the front lawn in the evening and have marshmallows for roasting (for a price).
It is a bit of a rambling place with lots of hallways and stairs to maneuver through, but that just adds to the overall feel of the place.
The room was a bit small but it more than met our needs.
The veranda is lovely for sitting and watching the lake and the view from the dining room is gorgeous.
They offer a free breakfast buffet every day which was very good as well.
