Awesome place to stay!! A bit pricey, but very clean rooms and cleanliness all around. Beautiful view of the lake and it's just a short walk down the trail to the marina. We will be comming back again.

The hotel is overall very nice, but is showing a few signs of age (i.e dirty grout, old faucets, etc). Overall, the staff was great, and the location is very beautiful. There is also a nice playground and marina.

The location of the hotel is beautiful, we had a lake facing room and the view was unbeatable. Beds were comfortable, clean hotel, very quiet. The marina was a short walk from the hotel, seemed like they had a lot of activities to offer although we were too busy to take part in them. Boats and kayaks and canoes to...

Beautiful lodge with comfortable rooms. Lots of things to do including pool, hot tub, sauna, and free use of canoes, paddle bikes, and fishing gear! Bonfire by the lake nightly during summer/fall. Stunning views of the lake. Very attentive, friendly, and helpful staff! Overall we had a wonderful experience and will likely visit again!

Overall a good place, however for $200 I would expect a continental type breakfast or complimentary drink tickets for bar. Something for that amount of money would be nice. I would suggest that something like that be done.

We had a room on the third floor with a beautiful view of the lake. The rooms were nice, comfortable beds and quiet. Both nights they had a bonfire. There was a short trail to the lake where they have kayaks, canoes and paddle boats for use. It's a very nice place not too far from town.

Everything was great about this place. A bit overpriced but I guess you get that when there are only a few hotels to stay in. Room was clean, Check In was easy, Restaurant is good. The apparel they sell is a bit pricey for me but over all great!! Will return.
