The Inn is by far, the best eating establishment for many miles in any direction. Their bar is also unmatched in the area. I recently had the pasta with pesto and cauliflower. It was okay but bland. I think a little bit could have made this dish an exceptional one. The waitress, Dawn was fantastic.

The food may be only mediocre, and the inn old and shabby, but there is something so charming about this place that keeps us coming back regularly. The bar is small and intimate as is the restaurant. A very cosy and comfortable family run inn. So the food...The house salad is very fresh. In the 10 years I've been eating... More

Good, not great, food, and with a large (>25) party just leaving, the service was understandably a tad tardy. The pasta night special was good, and you can have seconds!

A real charmer of a place, a throw back in time, as you kick back and take in the scene...nothing fancy, the view outside satisfies all that you want. Good simple food, great service, no snobs around- perfect for a relaxing dining experience

Had a late lunch with a group of friends. The location is pretty remote but on the edge of a lovely little lake. Dining room is large and airy with expansive windows overlooking the lake. There is also a dark and cozy looking bar area. Housekeeping is a bit spotty in the public areas, but the food was well prepared,... More

My wife & I decided to take a ride to this restaurant Saturday for lunch. The Inn & restaurant area was very old fashioned but well kept. We sat in the rear room looking out at the frozen lake. The view of the lake was really nice. The restaurant made us both feel very cozy & comfortable. The service and... More

The menu here is extensive and the food is always good. They also have a nice little shop and interesting art gallery. Murder Mstery Dinners and live music are scheduled periodically and are always fun to attend. We frequently go here to celebrate a holiday with friends.

The Inn offers the best cuisine for many miles. You won't accidentally find this place as it is as remote as you are likely to find on a paved road. Some of the wait staff can be a bit snooty at times, especially if you are not a guest of the inn.
