I fail to understand how anyone could not enjoy themselves at this magestic Victorian establishment located in a delightful village overlooking Lake Superior. The food there is incredible. The service is perfect. I have been there as a couple, solo and with my family a number of times over the last 25 years. I also have travelled the world and stayed in fine hotels in most of the lower 48 states and what I say is not without a depth of comparison to similar establishments.
Yes for many it is a hike to get there. And I suppose folks tend to think of such a place situated so far north only as someplace to frequent in the summer months. But it is a place in my heart for all seasons, a place where I have been reborn mentally. It was the scene of my honeymoon and the place where I stayed with my now ex-wife and our three children to celebrate our last Christmas together as a family before our divorce. I have brought my 87 year old Father there as his first outing after open heart surgery. I have gone there to enjoy the Apple Festival and Art Festivals and wine tasting weekends and beer tasting weekends. I also have gone there just to be by myself and gain composure. The Rittenhouse is my oasis, my summer cottage, my winter get-away, my home away from home. I hope it never ends.
