My husband and I recently returned from a relaxing stay at the Opechee Spa and Inn. As it is mud season, we stayed inside for the most part. The weather outside was cold and blustery and a heavy layer of dirty snow still coated everything. The room we stayed in was lovely - spacious, nice architectural details, gas fireplace, comfortable easy chairs, double whirlpool tub, feather bed. We also enjoyed a couple of services at the SPA - the spa is beautiful and the service there was wonderful. The onsite restaurant is also terrific and highly recommended. Overall, the weekend was just what the doctor ordered. I do, however, have a few minor complaints: The internet connection in our room did not work even after we tried a second internet cable. Fortunately, there is a computer in the lobby with a printer (we were considering visiting a maple sugar house and needed directions). The gourmet coffee bar that's advertised on the Inn's website is actually one of those canister coffee machines - thoughtful, but not exactly gourmet. The 'country continental' breakfast leaves a lot to be desired. It is reminiscent of what you would find at a budget motor inn. EVERY bit of food is wrapped in plastic film. I suppose that helps things to stay fresh but it doesn't look very appetizing. Coffee is obtained from the canister coffee machine. The pastries are the mass produced variety from a large megamart (think hostess cupcakes from Market Basket). Continental breakfast is fine but at $200+ night, I would have expected a nicer presentation and some fresh baked choices. Finally, the location was not what we expected. The lake view is nice but somewhat obscured by an industrial building and there is a large parking lot between the inn and the lake. Because of the snow, it is difficult to say if the landscaping was nice. There weren't many mature trees. The immediate area is not attractive - there are lots of neon signs, fast food restaurants, car dealerships, etc. everywhere - including along the lakes. If we had planned to spend time outdoors, I would have been disappointed in the surroundings.
