We were coming for a wedding but it was also my husband's birthday. When I called for early check in, they were able to get us in at 12:30 & said they would see what they could do for his birthday. We arrived to a upgraded room and a delivery of 6 local brewery beers!!! I believe Erica is who...

The hotel is maintained very well. The front desk employees are great. The employees who do the maintenance need training. They were somewhat rude...the location is awesome. We got a lakeview room and enjoyed it a lot. The pool was a little dirty but the spa was excellent. We rented a small boat and took a ride on the lake,...

We just spent two days at The Lakehouse, celebrating my 10 year old's birthday. He wanted an adventurous trip. I saw this hotel online and showed him, he said,"That place looks cool!! Let's go there!" We had so much fun. The hotel is gorgeous interior and exterior. Two large pools and 2 jacuzzi's. Our room was a lake view. I...

When me and my boyfriend first arrived at the lake house, they welcomed us with champagne and gave us the pool key so we swam in a very nice, relaxing pool and spa. The room was beautiful and clean. Such great customer service. They gave us a free hour boat ride for my birthday and free smores for all guests....

My daughter goes to school in the area. So we stay when we visit her and we always enjoy are stay. We always roast marshmallows when we go and my kids love the pool. The rooms are always tip top and it's nice to take a stroll by the lake.

Quiet, modern, gorgeous. Those are a few key words to describe this place! The staff is amazingly helpful and friendly. I suggest second floor of any room you get. Better views of the beautiful landscape and hotel.

This hotel was clean, had friendly service and had a great view. Everything was perfect for its value and love the service. The reason behind a 4 out of 5 would simply be that there isn't much to do outside of staying in the room that I know of as we stayed in mid April and it was sort of...

This hotel was in the perfect location for a quick one night stay during a brewery tour. -We'll be back with the family for a few days in the summer! The view was beautiful, centrally located, and very clean room.

Felt like the staff really "sugar coated" how they "upgraded" us to a bigger room... it was dark when we arrived and late. Our room overlooked parking lot and I was very disappointed in that. I would of much preferred a pool side or lake view room. Would definitely ask for a different room next time!

“I stayed in room #3012. My room has a door that connected to room 3010. Unfortunately whoever was occupying the room had set there alarm for 5 AM sunday morning. Only problem was they let the alarm chirp for 20 minutes. Then it was quiet for 9 minutes & then the alarm chirped again for another 20 minutes. This continued several times. I finally called to front desk at 5.50AM to see if possibly the room was unoccupied & someone had inadvertently left the alarm clock on. Front desk clerk told me the room was occupied & possibly the guest needed to be up early. Very understandable but I really didn't need awake til 8:30 AM or so. After all my family had rented many rooms as well as the Boat house for my nephews wedding the previous night. I certainly could have used as much sleep as possible do to the late night we had just had. Nonetheless I totally understand the resort can not be held accountable for their guest's lack of common courtesy when it comes to alarm clocks. ”
