My husband and I went to Friends Lake Inn to celebrate our Anniversary. The Inn had been recommended to us by several friends and colleagues, who raved about the food and wine. We choose one of the special overnight packages offered by the Inn, which included the specified activity, dinner, breakfast, and turndown service. The dinner and wine were top notch, however the room was disappointing. The room was clean and neat, but not worth the price you pay. The bedspread and drapes are old and faded and there are no extra amenities. We did not receive the "complimentary room upgrade on arrival when available." Also, it is not mentioned on the website or when you book your reservations, but when you arrive they tell you will be charged an automatic 18% gratuity for dinner and breakfast in addition to your package price. We had no problem with the 18% gratuity (we probably would have left more) but the fact that they dont tell you on the website or when you book it and then add it when you arrive was a litte off-putting. It was a fine night, but overpriced.
