Nice rooms and super clean. Every room is different. The Sherwood Inn is very charming from top to bottom. When we arrived on Friday, all the unoccupied rooms had the door open so we could tour around and see them. Nothing left amiss. One of the staff was polishing the old wood floors. Bookcases everywhere with everything from the classics...

This is a large 200+ year old inn, very authentic with original floors and Victorian room décor. The large rooms are well equipped and comfortably appointed, fronting the lake across the street gave excellent views. The dining room on the first floor also fronted the lake, making for a truly good dining atmosphere. Our wait staff at dinner was very...

My daughters were so excited to take me back to the Sherwood Inn. It was a beautiful day, we had a table on the porch overlooking the lake and a very nice server. However, the 35.00 a person Mother's Day Brunch was such a let down. The food was not very good, in some cases horrible and the selection was...

This was our dinner destination for my birthday and this restaurant gets an A+ for customer service. Beautifully situated by the lake, this inn has fantastic character. We were seated at a candlelit table by the window and then proceeded to sit with no service for 20 minutes. Not to worry though! When we spoke up, the server kindly explained...

We took advantage of the winter rates to stay at the Sherwood Inn, and it was wonderful. Our room was lovely and very clean and the staff is the best, always ready with a smile and very helpful. Breakfast is included, and there was plenty of it. And sitting on the porch overlooking the lake is a great way to...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night on a romantic getaway. The bar and restaurant have an upscale feel. All of the rooms are unique and use old-school keys. So much space in the room, very nice bathtub. The Lake is right out from with access when the weather is nice. Quaint town, easily walk-able, a bit over...

The Sherwood Inn is a very unique Inn. Built in the 1800's it features approximately 25 rooms, all differently furnished. The desk staff and wait staff are exceptionally friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The Sunday afternoon entertainment in the pub is fantastic and the atmosphere really makes you feel as if your back...

Our family enjoyed a birthday party with 20 people in a gorgeous room surrounded by two walls of windows looking out on the lake. The service was impeccable with delicious appetizers of crab and thinly slice smoked salmon. Lunch was the most tender of roast beef done to perfection served on Kimmelweck rolls and homemade potato chips that were out...

We had family dinner and it was great. Pot roast dinner never fails, steak tender and shrimp cocktails perfection ! Au gratin potatoes were to die for !! Asparagus tender but not over cooked. Local wines delish !!
