My wife and I were looking for a quiet place to get away for a couple days to enjoy some peace and quiet before the madness of the school year began. We'd heard good things from some friends about Inn on Crescent Lake so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed!
The personal service from the owners was first rate, and it was fun to learn about their history and the history of the Inn itself. Craig and Beverly were extremely friendly and personable, and seemed genuinely interested in making our stay exactly what we wanted it to be. We received a personal tour when we arrived, chatted with them as they served us breakfast, and were sent off in person when our time there was over.
The Inn is a beautiful mansion full of real wood, historical antiques, and a quaint character that can't be found in recent architecture. The public areas were filled with pictures of the owners and their family, which my wife especially enjoyed. There were many amenities available, including drinks (coffee, tea, soda), snacks (cookies, granola bars), board games, a DVD library, and more. The pool and hot tub looked clean and well kept, though we didn't get to enjoy them due to the cool and rainy weather while we were staying there. There were several outdoor activities available (including boating or fishing), but we instead chose to enjoy a leisurely stroll around the grounds, which were beautiful.
We stayed in the Ballroom, which was on the third floor. It was amazing! Very roomy, with interesting nooks everywhere you looked. My wife commented on how clean everything looked and smelled, and the decoration was very tasteful and refined -- unlike so many other bed and breakfasts -- with all the major comforts you would expect. The pictures on the website capture the room, though they hardly do it justice. I believe there were something like a dozen people staying there at the time, though we rarely saw anyone outside of breakfast, and the whole mansion was very quiet throughout our entire stay.
For a quiet and relaxing couples getaway, you'll be hard pressed to find a better place than this. We look forward to going back as soon as we can!
