3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Service was fine, but the bathroom had peeling wallpaper and those drop ceilings were REALLY low (we were on the first floor).There were rust stains in the tub.The bed was very comfy and beds were fresh. A little outdated for the price, which is hefty. Nice view from our tiny porch.

We stayed here for a wedding and we had a wonderful time. The room was clean & as advertised, we could hear everything going on in the hallway but we had a suite with a separate bedroom so it didn't bother us. The staff were all extremely helpful, there were 2 weddings going on that weekend and everything went smoothly.... More

My husband and I love being near the water. We had a late lunch of Reuben's. The corned beef could have been a bit more tender. Brooke, our waitress, was graceful and helpful. They were quite busy and she apologized for some delay. There was a wedding taking place so it was understandable. We had a lovey view of the... More

I booked a lake front room for an overnight stay, and the grounds are beautiful. There is a long row of Adirondack chairs along the sea wall at the water's edge for guests to relax and enjoy the view. The staff at the Inn are friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean and comfortable. The Inn is located within minutes... More

Have stayed at inn on the lake for several days for 3 years in the summer to enjoy the lake, see family, have a little relaxation. This year, front desk manager was RUDE inhospitable when I called prior to my trip to confirm my reservations. First, they shorted me a night... An honest mistake. He proceeded to tell me I... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Inn for our wedding anniversary. I selected the Wine and Dine package which had a Lakefront room to $390 total for our one night stay. The food quality at the Shores restaurant was excellent. We enjoyed the property which is a great venue for a wedding with its lake front tent. We... More

Our first impression of the Inn was that it just seemed a bit tired. The ceiling in the first floor room hallway is so low that my 6'4" husband felt a bit closed in while walking to our room. We had s second floor canal view. The room was a bit odd. Long with a sitting area, very small bathroom... More

Very pretty location, rooms seem a bit old, with small bathrooms. Stayed in a suite, size was fine, but bathroom was too small. Tub with shower combo should have some sort of grab bars of for safety, but there was nothing to hold onto getting into or out of the tub to shower, so it felt a little scary. Very... More

While attending a wedding we stayed at the Inn on the Lake. The room was generously sized, and we faced the lake and pool. It was nice the way each room had Adirondack chairs outside to enjoy the views. The Inn has a big restaurant for guests and there seem to be some boaters that come dock there to enjoy... More
