The swimming pool is next to the hotel and it was good to have a refreshing swim, because it was quite hot that day. A...

We were on the second floor with a lake view. I didn't know there was an indoor pool available for guests until we checked in. Hubby didn't...

Nothing fancy but clean and affordable We were just passing through so met our needs. Off season for much outdoor use of the lake and picnic spaces. Restaurant was adequate and enjoyed an alcoholic beverage
