“Amazing location, pleasant stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

This was such a nice place to stay! We had quite a long trip as we were traveling to attend a wedding. Everyone was very friendly and our room was great. We even had a little balcony with chairs to enjoy the fall foliage. We will definitely stay here again when we visit the area. Thank you for a great time - so comfortable!

Our stay this past weekend was quite comfortable. We were there for 2 nights, and wished we had gone for 3. The front desk staff was quite friendly. We received our welcome 'Whoopie Pies' which were delicious. We were also given great recommendations for restaurants, two of which we tried and were very satisfied. The pool and spa were great. Continental breakfast was also fine, the usual that you find at this type of stay. The breakfast dining room was nice and clean. Their self serve beverages (soft drinks, coffee, and cocoa) were avaialble 24 hours, which I thought was a nice offering, as well as popcorn every night from 5-8 pm. Our room was very comfortable, and each time we passed the front desk I helped myself to An 'Atomic' 'Fire'ball...compliments of The 'Fire'side Inn!

For the price - this was one of the best places we've stayed!! The staff was very friendly. The room was spacious and clean. The pool and spa were awesome!!! The grounds were well kept. We only stayed one night, but will definitely go back for a longer stay.

I have stayed here for three years in a row now during the Timberman Ironman race at the end of August. It is a wonderfully accommodating Inn with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, and clean and extensive accommodations. I come with my wife and three children (13, 10, & 8). The pool, hot tub, & breakfast are just a few of the amenities. The location is perfect for visiting this area. Right on the lake, near the ski area, and close to a diverse variety of food and entertainment. the rooms are large, clean, and very well maintained. We always select a suite, which I would strongly recommend. The rooms are nice, but the suits are what set this Inn apart form the competition. We will continue to patronize this facility for years to come!

Room Tip: Select a suite. The rooms are comparable to any hotel's, but the suites are spacious and very co...

We originally stayed at the Fireside about 3 years ago and were resistant to going back. Back then this was a basic and so-so place to stay in the lake area. This last weekend we decided to give it another try basically because it had the most reasonable rate for the area. What a pleasant surprise. The hotel has been upgraded to a really nice place to stay. The rooms were spacious, clean, nicely appointed and comfortable. Check in was fast and very friendly. The maids were also very friendly and helpful. All that plus little amenities such as popcorn and free soda in the lobby and a reasonably nice buffet style breakfast. No doubt we would go back.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have a balcony

A large motel on an intersection, easy to find and park. Very welcoming reception, including two 'whoopie bars'. The room was large and thoughtfully appointed with two comfortable arm chairs, two luggage rests, a pile of towels, fridge and microwave; comfortable bed. Good reading lights. Easy to access wifi.
Breakfast happened in a large room with square tables with all the offerings around the sides - slightly bewildering. Cereal, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, boiled egg. You can make your own fresh pancake, but the main show is watching people make waffles - batter can go everywhere.
If you need a bed in the area, Fireside Inn is great.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be isolated from external noise. Corridor noise could be a problem as we were woke...

Glad I read the reviews on this website because that is why I chose Fireside. The price was right and the readers' comments convinced me. It is a beautiful venue with large rooms and a very friendly staff. They provided the best Continental breakfast I had during our week-long foliage tour------lots of choices! Located only 7 miles from Weirs Beach so it is an ideal place to stay if you want to take the lake cruise. Weirs Beach did not seem very attractive for anyone over 25! If you book here and choose a second floor room, you will have a nice balcony on which to relax.
While I probably won't be doing another foliage tour in the near future, I will certainly be staying at Fireside when I do.
