We took a road trip for Fall foliage and chose this Inn for our first night. The owners were very accommodating since we would have a late night arrival. The keys were left on the counter, and we woke up to a wonderful, beautiful place! The room was clean and cozy, and the Inn was just adorable. The location was... More

We spent 2 nights at the inn topping off our trip through New England. This was the highlight of the trip. We hiked, kayaked, and paddle boarded on the on and around the crystal clear lake. Breakfast was included and it was wonderful. We especially enjoyed dinner prepared by the chef. The food was 5 star. I would highly recommend... More

We stayed for one night on our way up to Canada. Beautiful Inn set on a stunning lake which you can explore by boat or kayak. We felt instantly relaxed from the moment we arrived.

My husband and I recently spent three wonderful nights at The Inn at Pleasant Lake. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed and relaxed.

This was the perfect setting for a two-day getaway. Lovely, quiet rooms ( we stayed in Room 9--a suite with lake view on the third floor. Perfect if you don't mind the climb) in a friendly, well-appointed-but-not-stuffy inn. Best of all is access to Lake Pleasant. The inn provides towels, beach chairs, life jackets and oars for those who want... 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.
