We rented a loft condo unit for a long weekend in September, when the air was starting to crisp up and smell like fall. Our stay was very quiet and peaceful, although I imagine that is probably not the case during the summer when it gets busier. I liked that we could pick the exact unit we wanted from the... More

We stayed for a few days to hopefully relax, recharge and see some fall colors. It is an older building, but it is fairly nice inside. It is on the lake at the southern end close to Uno's. Each unit is privately owned so you should check their website to see which units have been upgraded or renovated recently. We... More

It had been years since we stayed here and the outside of the building showed every year. Very little had been done to keep up the exterior; building façade, sidewalks, parking lot. . . all were pot-holed, cracked, and in disrepair. But since the condo rooms are all individually owned, they were a pleasant surprise. We stayed in two different... More
