My wife and I used to love the former inn-Golden Oaks and we stayed there several times. It was closed for about a year and now has new owners. It is not even really open now, they will take your $, but will not return phone calls or e-mails and badly messed up the reservation for anniversary weekend in Lk Geneva Aug 24-26th. We had to last minute find somewhere else to stay (Roses B&B was wonderful BTW)!! The new lady that owns Maxwell Mansion (i.e. Golden Oaks) is completely rude and inept. I gaurantee this place will not remain open-horrible service and in fact last weekend every time we went past there was not a car in the lot nor a light on in the place. They no longer have ANY staff onsite, no bar, no breakfast, no cupcake place like before..nothing at all. Repeat-find somewhere else to stay. They still have not even refunded my $ for a room that I could not even rent-what a scam and what a shame!!
