Just returned from our stay at the Woodbound Inn. My wife and I and our two children were attending a wedding reception at the Inn and were anticipating a nice stay in a "cabin " on the lake. What we experienced was our biggest "mistake " on the lake.
The receptiion was ok. The food was good but the service was lacking. The nightmare started when we reached our cabin. The outside lights did not work so we coped by using the car headlights to drag in our luggage, stepping over the broken mirror in the walkway. Inside was large but was blatantly old with no attempts to update. The mattresses were lumpy and uncomfortable. The windows had simple blinds that would'nt do much come morning. Getting familiar with the cabin, I went into the bathroom only to find the light switch didn't work so the door had to stay open while in use. Just about now we realized that the cabin did not have a TV, not that we needed a TV but there for $170/ night you expect a TV. By the way there is no phone and cell phone service was suspect. Its bedtime and we all go down easily looking foward to a good night of sleep. My wife tosses noisely while I dose off quickly only to be awakened by our neighbors an hour later who decided to have a party outside of there cabin from 11 to 3 am. Luckily the kids don't wake up, that is until the dog starts barking. Finally the party breaks up and everyone gets back to sleep until I wake up at my regular 6am to find the cabin has become chilly. So I tiptoed to the front room to turn on the heater and crawl back to bed. About a minute later it sounded like a freight train was in the front room. I ran in to see what was wrong. The heater was vibrating and shaking so much I had to sit on it to quiet it down. Needless to say the whole family was awake. So to those who are thinking of staying in a cabin, it would be a good deal for $49/night. To the Woodbound Inn, being "rustic" is no excuse for being dirty, uncomfortable, and outdated.
