The room was awesome, lake side with nice comfy chairs to see & look over the water. Very clean beds and a great walk in shower, whole room was beautiful. Had room service which was fast & yummy. Will return again for sure.

We were celebrating a 2 family get-together for my mother's 75th birthday that included teens and non-golfing spouses. Lakehouse provided the perfect accommodations with the shore cottage with 2 bedrooms/2 baths and a dining area/living area for the family to gather and celebrate with a take-out dinner. We received a wonderful surprise to make it even more special: a bottle... More

The location is peaceful. In the middle of a retirement community. So things close down early around there. No microwave in the room. Great parking. Comfortable bed! Staff is wonderful! I will return in the summer with my kids and upgrade the room to give them another shot.

Even though I live just down the street in San Marcos, it's a nice getaway for a day or two. The cottages by the lake are so cute, and the rooms by the swimming pool are very relaxing as well. It's a very picturesque setting.

A great place to stay but the check in process wasn't as smooth as we would have liked it. They got our room mixed up and we had to wait a bit. Other than that I would have given the hotel a 5 star rating.

Clean, comfortable memory foam mattress beds! Staff was very helpful accommodating me for early check in at 0830 in the morning instead of the usual 1500 in the afternoon. The design and decoration of the room is unique and inviting.

More Privacy on the balcony deck.. We loved the room. Had a great view of the Lake and the mountains. Sat on the deck reading and watching the sun set. Didn't care for the music piped thru the place, that and the construction next to resort made it very noisy. Weather was nice, but due to the smokers next store... More

We were in town for a wedding this past weekend. The hotel staff is very friendly, and the place is beautiful. I loved how they decorated their lobby and rooms. The only thing I thought was a little odd but not a huge inconvenience is the room doors open outwards not inward.
