I was there for the CS department retreat. The Inn is by the lake, many wood high back chairs right by the water, leisure boats constantly moving by, plenty of deck or window seats at its restaurant and bar. We used the large tent by the water in the middle of all this and caucused all day, admiring the best... More

The hotel has a great location directly on the lake but the bedrooms are a bit outdated. The air conditioning was especially very loud. A good refresh is necessary. The restaurant that we have only used for the breakfast is not great. On the good side, the management was kind enough to stay longer than 11 AM to check-out and... More

We stayed here for two nights over our wedding weekend, as our wedding was held in the area. We had a room block for our guests with about 10 rooms. When we arrived, I gave the front desk a bunch of gift bags to distribute to my guests as they checked in. Of our 10 rooms, only 1 room actually... More

The Staff were very courteous. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Beautiful setting on the water. Rooms were a little expensive for what you got. Restaurants served good price and waitresses were very knowledgeable regarding the menu and activities to do in the area. Loved looking at the boats coming and going from the marina.

I recently had lunch with friends on the outdoor patio, overlooking beautiful Canandagua Lake. Three of us ordered the risotto with vegetables. Delicious! For dessert we had the peach cobbler, also excellent. A fourth friend ordered the S'mores dessert, which was creme brûlée.with marshmallow topping. Best ever! Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. Been there twice, never disappointing. So... More

Service at indoor restaurant was adequate. Front desk adequate. Brunch was disappointing because they didn't refill juice, fruit and other items on buffet. No one was there to make omelettes. Hotel room not impressive. Best part was outdoor setting. Wine tasting in culinary area great! Wouldn't stay overnight or dine there again, but would try wine tasting and cooking class.

The service here was absolutely horrible. Our family booked 4 rooms for a wedding. We arrived at 245 and they only had one room ready which was understandable because check in was not until 3. When we told the lady at the desk we will be back to check in at 3 her response was "Well I don't know when... More

My husband and I were looking forward to a night away. The lake made it worth while but not our hotel stay. The room smelled horribly musty upon our arrival. We later discovered standing water along the window side of the room due to a very old air conditioning unit that was leaking. The maintenance staff did all they could... More
