We recently enjoyed celebrating our third anniversary at the Eagles Mere Inn. We stayed two nights and were blessed with a winter snow storm during our visit. We were the only guests and as a result I think we had a more special visit than perhaps some of the other reviewers.
We stayed on the top floor of the main inn and although our room did have the slanted ceiling we found it very warm and cozy. However, the bed was a bit uncomfortable and the toilet was sensitive, you had to jiggle the handle just so in order for the water not to run and keep you up all night. Barbie was kind enough to show us the other reviews so we could pick out our room for next time. I think we would keep to the main inn, especially if we return in the winter, for convenience to the meals.
The meals were more than adequate. From the french toast with it's delicious sauce and pumpkin pancakes for breakfast to the duck and salmon for dinner. We were the only guests so the dinner reservations and formal dining attire was waived, we did let Barbie know when we would be returning from our wanderings so dinner would be hot and ready. She was even so sweet as to save the special chocolate cream puff I didn't have room for the night before as a dessert treat for breakfast. Yum!
We enjoyed hiking around the lake in the fresh snow. So very peaceful and serene. Barbie even had some warm winter hats and gloves she was willing to lend us for our hike.Most of the stores were closed due to it being the off season and we saw very few people. We wandering around the surrounding area, although we were limited due to the fresh snow, we visited the Forksville Covered Bridge and High Knob overlook.
All in all we found our visit to be exactly was we were looking for and would highly recommend the inn.
