The setting is spectacular. Very relaxing to sit there and have hors d'oeuvres and drinks, which were very good. Dinner to was very tasty, our waiter was attentive but not bothersome. Looking forward to our return.

We entered the inn by chance and were impressed by the beautiful view over the lake. On top of that the circumspect service of the staff made this a perfect stay. We just had drinks enjoying the late afternoon atmosphere on the lake. The waiter offered me some beer tasting before I ordered. The only nasty thing were the swarms... More

We just spent a wonderful week at the West Shore Inn. Our son was skeptical at first, seeing the small size if the Inn, but he was immediately impressed to discover rooms that were far from the generic hotel suites he's come to know. Over the years we have stayed at many big name, highly rated hotels with very pleasant... More

Stopped for lunch. There is extensive deck and jetty seating which looked very appealing but we were warned by the hostess that wasps were very active some took an inside window seat which was still spectacular. Excellent choices on the lunch menu with a reasonable range of pricing. Good draught beer selection and decent wine by the glass selection. Tables... More

We come to the West Shore Inn once a year for a getaway. We have always stayed in the Marlette Peak Suite, but this time we were given the Mt. Watson Suite. Both suites have beautiful views, 2 balconies and 2 fireplaces. Marlette has a larger sitting area and smaller bedroom, and Watson have a smaller sitting area and larger... More

Everything about this place is great: The deck seating for lunch, the indoor dinner seating with a lake view and the food is absolutely terrific! It was recommended by a friend who is a local and I have to say being a foodie I was 100% pleased with all of our selections, drinks and very caring but "not in your... More

We , our nuclear family, occupied 3 of the 5 suites There were 10 of us, 6 adults and 4 children. We stayed for 3 nights in late June. The suites are large and well appointed. The Inn is directly on the lake so the views are awesome. It's probably among the most expensive properties on that side of the... More

We have been going to this Restaurant for years and everything was always great, food and service. Today we went there and we could not believe how bad the service and food was. After the hostess assigned us a table we waited approximately 15 minutes and nobody came over to ask us what we wanted. My wife finally asked the... More

We stayed in the Mt. Watson suite - pictures do not do this property justice. It was a perfect setting to travel with family and enjoy a relaxing lakefront/ski-in-ski-out experience at Homewood. Staff was exceptional and at every turn made my family feel special and well-cared for. I highly recommend staying here.
