The hotel sits right on the lake and the views and access to the lake cannot be beat. Unfortunately, thats where the praise ends. They take a beautiful spot and plunk down an outdated dull hotel without any warmth. Its a real tragedy as it would take little more than a smile at the front desk, comfortable mattresses and just basic interior design to make it fabulous. But the rooms are bare and uninteresting and without color. They don't even bother to put out chairs on your deck so you can enjoy the lawn down to the lake. And they misrepresent their extras-- the mini golf course is a 9 foot by 15 foot putting green with nine holes drilled in it. The bikes and canoes are old, worn and inaccessible, and the spa is a dirty cold whirlpool. So if great location is enough, it creates access. If you expect any extras forget it.
