We stayed two nights at Shula's Lake House last week. We required a late arrival, and Ginnie and Bob were totally accomodating to our needs. We are vegetarians, but that was no problem for Ginnie--our breakfast both days was excellent and filling. The room was very comfortable and the views of the lake were perfect. We wanted to stay at the edge of the lake to avoid the anticipated sulfur smells, and it wasn't a problem at Shula's Lake House. We really appreciated the good advice from Ginnie and Bob about what to see and do in the local area. We'd definitely spend more time there if the opportunity presents itself.
