This is my third time staying at the Inn at Pleasant Lake - and the experience just keeps getting better and better. I stayed in Room 6, recently renovated and updated (room and bathroom) with calming colors and updated amenities. Very cozy and comfortable! The grounds, including the lake and the beach, are in top shape and create a wonderful... More

Visiting friends who actually live on Pleasant Lake afforded us the opportunity for an exceptional dining experience. Dinner at the Inn is like being invited to the home of a top chef on his night off. Chef Brian Leary greets his guests for the evening in the Inn's charming sitting room by a large fireplace, where he describes his offerings... More

My boyfriend and I just returned from a wonderful, relaxing weekend at the Inn. I had spent a lot of time researching the perfect romantic getaway weekend from Boston, and our stay at the Inn did not disappoint!

The Irish Ale Potato Bisque with chive oil and bacon were so good I had to have a second bowl. Seconds on any portion of the meal were encouraged by the Chef. The salad had about a dozen ingredients and was served with fresh baked herbed French bread. The"Intermezzo", passion fruit sorbet with candied Mango, was wonderfully fragrant and equally... More

The Inn at Pleasant Lake is absolutely breathtaking! Our room was beautiful and the inn itself was decorated perfectly and had such a peaceful atmosphere. The grounds are gorgeous. Sitting out under the big spreading tree on the veranda with a cup of tea and looking out to the lake is just what we were looking for. In the evening... More

You've stepped back to a time where life was slower and people talked to each other. The Inn is a beautifully renovated very old house that has seen many lives. Every room is different.
