I stayed for a week in one of the cottages that surround the main lodge, and the experience was disappointing. The cottage smelled old and musty, and the egg smell and taste of the water was bad, bad, bad. The floors creaked, and the furniture was worn and lumpy. The two bedrooms were cramped, as were the bathroom and kitchen. The clear, low-watt light bulbs made for a depressing atmosphere. Needless to say, I stayed in the cottage as little as possible.
The photogenic main house, which has a few guest rooms, seemed to be in better shape -- so you might want to explore that option first. I did enjoy sitting on the large front porch, and the location -- just off the main street in Fish Creek -- can't be beat. The owner was pleasant and helpful.
Note: The Inn's Web site includes photos and virtual tours of each room and cottage. My experience, at least, indicates that things look better online than in person.
