New Owners are in process of upgrading and so this is now very basic but clean and fine and right on the lake and very central. Wonderful place for breakfast across the street. Cute town which we enjoyed including a few nice restaurants. We enjoyed our stay.

Room somewhat disappointing...only average in quality and size. Bathroom tiny...only blinds across window for privacy from those walking by the room. Different water equipment on edge of lake hindering part of the view of lake from the room. Had much difficulty opening the door

Our room was steps away from the water. Beautiful views. Lady at front desk was very accommodating, took us for a tour to our room and explained all the added amenities. Small amenity fee included in your stay, includes access to canoes, SUPs, fishing poles, tennis rackets, etc.

Is there Lake access? We are planning a fishing trip and will be bringing our small fishing boat.
They have boats you can use, but I'm unsure if you can launch from there. Give them a call- they are quite nice!

I agree with Wausau-check directly with the Inn, they were very nice. Our room was large enough to accommodate extra but I can't say what the allow or would charge for.

"Not all rooms seem to have a lake view. Some of the lower-level rooms are a bit damp, but it's on a lake after all."
"If you book online or over the phone and you have any special request ask for a lake view room although I believe just about all of them are"
"All rooms are nicely situated."
"Lovely views in the corner room 28."
"Room on the water, suite if they have them"
