We had a very cozy and quaint 2 night stay in the sunset suite, room 7...Our suite, although small, had everything we needed along with nice little extras such as snacks, perfumed hot tub additives and battery operated candles around the hot tub, terry robes... Cozy quilted bed duvet along with soft feather pillows...electric fireplace...relaxing in the elevated hot tub and being able to see the lake/sunset and also watch TV while relaxing our weary bodies was delicious! A very nice breakfast each morning along with a Keurig and freshly made iced tea and lemonade available anytime, also chocolate chip cookies one afternoon. The great room was inviting and had a lot of neat things to read, games, and DVD's to sign out to your room. The lakefront terrace was breathtaking and we enjoyed our lunch out there one day and coffee each morning. A small pebble beach with a few chairs was also nice, but a little windy and cool the day we tried to sit down there. Would definitely return, hopefully in warmer season and when more of the local amusements open. We did go to Firehouse winery and enjoyed their outside lakefront area. Dined at the Geneva Lodge one night, good food and nice atmosphere. The Crosswinds Grille was closed for dinner the 2 nights we were there. Having our anniversary in April limits us in new and exciting areas that are within a 2 hr drive, this was a very nice location and reachable from our Pittsburgh area home.

Room Tip: Choose a lakeview suite. #7 and 8 are very nice!!!

We used a Living Social deal and had a great time! We stayed in cottage 3 for 2 nights. The cottage was clean and well stocked with basic kitchen items. There was a welcome snack basket and a binder of visitor information that was very helpful. Our dinner and wine was wonderful and excellent service. We had a delicious breakfast each morning and enjoyed the view of the lake. We picked the cottage for privacy and the use of the kitchen. The 1 hr relaxation massage was amazing and the spa was clean and peaceful. The staff were very helpful....even when we locked ourselves out of the cottage! We would definitely come back again....during the off season. The summer is very crowded. We always vacation on the off seasons because we like the quiet and low key atmosphere. The cottages have small bathrooms and shower only, but the website is very clear about the descriptions about all the rooms, etc. We highly recommend this for couples!

Room Tip: The rooms in the bed and breakfast have tubs and views of the lake. The cottages do not have a lake view.

My wife and I stayed overnight in the Jacuzzi suite. I was later told it was the nicest room. And I believe it. Everything was perfect. The room itself was clean, well stocked with the basics as well as some nice extras like snacks, coffee, electric fireplace, and perfumed additives for the Jacuzzi. It was everything we needed.
Staff was very friendly. The place in general was decorated well, clean, and had a real vacation feel to it.
Great view out the window of the lake. Plus stairs leading to several decks to hang out at. Well lit at night.
The breakfast in the morning was included and was excellent. All quality, local food.
We stayed in the off season (end of April) so the rate was also a welcome relief. A good bargain.
My wife and I plan to stay there every year to get some alone time. Loved it!

Room Tip: Jacuzzi room is the best room by far.

My husband and I live in Ohio and were looking for a unique way to spend our 19th anniversary. We reserved a room and signed up separately for an on-site wine tour & tasting along with dinner reservations, and breakfast the following morning.

Accommodations included the public great room and kitchenette including fresh lemonade, Keurig coffee maker and house ground coffee in the morning. There were sweet and salty snack bags in our room along with a cute house soap in the bath imprinted with their logo.

Our room was #5; a small room with a double bed, TV with cable, and what you need for a 1-2 day stay. The bathroom was small but adequate, with a pedestal sink and stand up shower. The shower stream was not strong, but it had hot water. The decor was average, but the bed was very comfortable with a beautiful quilt on it. The inn itself has character and has a strong "homey" feel to it.

The view of Lake Erie from their terraced patio is prime and made me proud of our Great Lake. There is a very small pebble beach where you could put a couple beach chairs there, but you can't swim in the water because of the breakers. But, the view is beautiful and having a glass of the house Reisling on one of the patios (with the ample seating provided) is something I'd like to do this summer.
The staff is friendly and helpful if you have any questions. The vinter, who is also the inn and restaurant owner, has a great set-up, and you can tell he loves what he does. He is happy to answer any questions you may have, and loves to talk everything wine - not in a condescending way - but in an educational way.

The tour is simple - it includes a look at the vats and bottling room with a primer given by the vinter on what makes good wine; how to drink wine; how wine affects food taste and vice versa. The paired tasting experience is what my husband and I really enjoyed - our minds were blown on how the food pairings with their different wines changed the tasting experience and how the wines have beginning note, middle note, and end note. Well worth the $15 each we paid! Dinner at the Crosswinds Grille (the onsite restaurant - two steps from the inn) was exquisite as we took what we learned during the tasting and applied it to our dining experience. I had the strip steak while my husband had the spicy shrimp and pasta - and we paired with the Cab. Sauvignon. Delicious.
The breakfast was delicious the next morning, where the chef uses local ingredients to drive the menu. We noticed there were both couples and girls weekend out groups that stayed at the inn.

Room Tip: We stayed in room #5, which was small but adequate. We knew we would not be in the room much and cared more about value and privacy than a room with a view. Because the patios had gorgeous views of the lake, I am sure the rooms facing the lake have beautiful views, but are naturally pricier.

When we first saw this on living social, we weren't sure it would measure up to the pictures and description. What a surprise! The actual facility and environment surpassed our expectations. The staff was friendly, down to earth and the whole experience was one we will not soon forget. Bravo!

Room Tip: Get the rooms with a view of the lake!
