Not the kind of lodge we were looking for. The place was dirty, unkept, and outdated by thirty years or more. The tiles on the bathroom floor were loose and missing grout. The walls needed painting and the beds had the thinnest blankets. The room smelled of mold and the furniture was well worn.The whole building could use a good... More

Nice Location with lake view rooms. Sits on top of a hill that was a surprise. Pictures lake lodge appear closer to the lake than it really is. Staff was very helpful. Our room was ready almost immediately upon early check in;) Breakfast was well stocked and adequate & much better than dry cereal and milk. Quiet room, but beds... More

When we arrived, the young lady at the front desk was much more interested in the two young men visiting with her than helping us check-in. We were in tiwn for the big annual car show, which meant we trailered our show car. Well, not only was there no parking for our trailer, there was no parking for our Tahoe!... More

Our balcony view overlooked the woods. The facility has a nice lodgy feel to it, friendly staff, efficient check in, large well appointed room with a mild musty smell. TV reception was so bad we couldn't watch it. Loved the lobby with its huge stone fireplace, beautiful lake view, large TV, computer station, and checker board that was a hit... More

My wife, son and I stayed here for three nights. We had a standard room. The property has some age but it is well maintained and the room was clean. We thought the lake would be accessible from the hotel but the fact it isn't would not prevent us from staying here again. We enjoyed ourselves and ate well. We... More

This is an older property but well maintained. Check in was quick and they had their staff jump on preparing my room since they knew I was waiting which is something not all hotels will do for you. They act like a family run property and not like a big chain. Fresh baked cookies in the afternoon was a nice... More

The breakfast area has no logical traffic pattern, tables are too big causing dead end maze channels. A lot backing up and looking for another way to the food and coffee.

Book a lakeside room and relax - this place feels like a mountain lodge, with a real stone fireplace, club chairs, and a patio with a view of the lake. Rooms are large, comfortable, and reasonably priced. "Breakfast" wasn't impressive, but we didn't really care.
