The hotel is spotless, excellent location, and the staff friendly & responsive. The beach and dock are a short stroll down a gravel path behind the hotel. Our room had a King size bed, in room jacuzzi tub & futon. We also had a large private deck with table & chairs. Our room had the option of outside adjoining room... More

The location was fantastic with a gorgeous view of the water. The room had everything we needed and more. The grounds are beautiful with a private beach, plenty of places to sit and relax and even enjoy a BBQ. Tammy and her staff were so friendly and eager to help. We will definitely be back!

The location is amazing, the owners are incredibly accommodating and friendly.This is a great place to relax with small children for a few days (we had 3 with us, 9, 7, 2). Maybe bring some utensils if you are going to cook (= bbq or microwave). Loved it!

We stayed in an upper level room with a jacuzzi bath, fireplace, and patio with beautiful views. It is a laid back resort with friendly helpful staff. My husband had been away on business and it is a great place to re-charge. The resort has new owners and in the past it has gone bankrupt 3 times. It is a... More

The room is very basic but it is clean and with large jacuzzi tub. What surprised me was the private beach. It is not not too big but definitely romantic. You can sit at right besides the water and watched sunset. Get room on 3rd floor so that you can have a balcony that overlook the lake. It is very... More

We stayed in a second floor room and had amazing views of the grounds and the lake. Wish we could have stayed longer but they said they were booked for the season. There are lots of mosquitos, my daughter got 5 bites! So if you go out at night make sure you spray yourself with some mosquitos or bug repeller.

The property was beautiful and the grounds well kept. We arrived after dinner in time to enjoy a sunset from the beach. The pool looked nice but we didn't go in. We stayed in a lower level room. Our room had a queen bed, futon, frig, a/c, TV with limited number of channels. The bed was comfortable. We did have... More

The view was awesome and the location excellent for anything we needed (town less then 5 minutes).Great central spot for any excursions you might take. Staff and owners friendly and welcoming. Small beach area as well as heated swimming pool. We are returning next year... More

This is the first time that my wife and I have stayed at this establishment. And I would highly recommend it to anyone. Arriving, we were greeted by the look of the traditional northern motel, however upon checking into the room we were delighted! The room was very big and well appointed. We had a private balcony and a private... More
