My husband and I recently decided to take a mini vacation and chose Inn on the Lake as our destination. We were pleasantly surprised by our experience. The service was great! We were greeted upon arrival and filled in on all we needed to know. The hotel was clean and inviting. The location is good, and the grounds were well...

While the hotel was built in the 1970's, it has been completely updated and is very well appointed. It was interesting to me that the TV monitor at the Reception Desk shows a slide show that includes pictures of the hotel as it once existed, and then during the stages of its complete remodeling. Our room (King Standard) was spacious...

I stayed at the hotel for three nights with my two children, ages 10 and 12. It is difficult to find hotel rooms with three beds and the kids are at that awkward stage where they are too old to share a bed but not old enough to have their own room. So I booked a two bedroom suite. It...

Our first night as a married couple was ruined by the staff at Inn on the Lake.Their website clearly states- on their home Page, “An evening of rest and relaxation in our guestroom”. I booked a suite with them to have a quite good night sleep on our first night as a married couple. I and my new Wife were...

Dear Mr. Scott Ingraham, When our front desk attendant checked the deck next to your room, after your 1st complaint, she observed three people talking quietly. When the RCMP checked after your second complaint no one was on the deck, no sound was coming from that guest's room and the lights were off. All of the exchanges you had with...

Stayed here while attending a family wedding in Halifax. Lovely, spacious property where we could walk along the lake or sit poolside. Our room was quite nice, patio door opened onto the pool deck. We were surprised to see a jacuzzi in the room, and really appreciated the air conditioning on a very warm day. Had supper on the restaurant...

We enjoyed a quiet queen bed room with claw tub and outside balcony in the rear of the property over a weekend stay for medical appts in the Fall River area... the staff were excellent. Room service was very professional with a 1 min call in advance before delivery and it was a fast order/delivery. Food in the dining room...

We stayed here very last minute as we were waiting out a blizzard that had cancelled all flights at the Halifax Airport. We were lucky to get a room, as many passengers were stranded at the airport. We were thrilled when we arrived at the Inn on the Lake! We were given a spacious, well appointed room, and they kept...

We stayed here on the last night of our holiday touring in an RV. It certainly was welcome to sleep in a large comfy bed! The lake view was lovely. There was a massive whirlpool bath in the room which my 5 year old nearly exploded with excitement about and had a whale of a time in! He now wants...

One of the best inns i've ever stayed at! The lobby is stunningly beautiful with lots of antiques but also a nice modern touch to it. The restaurant there was fantastic, reasonably priced and fresh, with a patio that has a picturesque view of the mountains. The inn also has a nice pool, small but quiet and cold, perfect to...
