Okay, here's a tip. If it's five-star comfort you are looking for, drive on, the Hilton is just 20 minutes away. But if you are looking for a truly different experience, something quaint and quirky, with a truly awesome breakfast, look no further. The inn is spectacularly located, with an overview of the lake, which is about half mile away....

Diane is a gracious hostess. Stayed in the villa. Clean and truly decorated like a Tuscan villa. Beautiful view of the lake. Breakfast was beautifully presented and delicious. Relaxing patio with sounds of birds all around.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the lakefront inn for one night and throughly enjoyed our quick stay. Although there were flurries in May, our room was cozy, warm and romantic. Breakfast was wonderful and the lake views topped it all off. Would definitely recommend!

Stayed at the Villa House. A great get-away! The only suggestion for improvement I have is for more hooks (for clothes, towels, robes, etc.) to be placed in the bathrooms and the room(s). Otherwise a perfect, peaceful place. Diana is fantastic, the breakfasts were yummy, and the natural soundtrack of birdsong in the meadow behind the Villa House was not...

This place was a secret little gem. Diane arranged for a cake for a birthday surprise. It was so cute, she even added a homemade card. It was moist and delish. The little touches were so special. They really make you feel at home. Little things you don't normally see like air freshner in the bathroom. It was like staying...
