We stayed here 2 nights in July and it was hot, but the fan and the open windows made it bearable. We were in Room 19 which has a great view. Love the screened porch. Yes, the property is old, but it is super clean and the sheets and towels were as soft as top hotels. Love the family atmosphere and friendly service. Coffee and morning treats and fruit was perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids. The fridge in the room is a larger size which was great to store our drinks. They offer a jar of water that they add fruit to at the office and often have left over treats set out. We stayed at the chain hotel off the exit the first trip to the area. Boulders is much better for us. The lakefront beach was awesome. There are plenty of chairs, hammocks, and swings to choose your special spot. There are grills and a fire pit aand you can borrow kayaks and canoes too. We will stay here again next summer for our annual trip to the area.
