Clean, beds were comfy. Carpet could use some upgrading. Some Kitchen utensils were old.

Nice location and cozy rooms! Loved the fireplace and the beds were very comfortable. It’s very pet friendly. Only suggestion is to remodel the shower.

The staff were all helpful and considerate. We wanted to stay away from people because of the virus but still have fun. It was a great place to relax and soak in the jacuzzi. We enjoyed walks on the lake. We got to watch the birds and ducks on the waterfront with their new ducklings. The room was perfect.

The guys shoveling the snow was so nice and friendly. The room was nice and clean, but the shower/tub was old and gross.

Pros-great location, friendly staff, good price, fireplace (even though you have to provide your own duraflame logs), pet friendly, there was a nice little lakefront/patio area, windows that open (definitely helped one of the cons) Cons-the bathroom was a problem, the tub was a bit clogged so water wasn’t draining well, the water in the shower would not keep a constant temperature, the toilet kept breaking. Cons outside of the bathroom-not super clean (the kind of place you definitely don’t want to go barefoot), had a smell that caused us to open one of the windows-in the winter, paper thin walls between rooms (could hear our neighbor’s entire conversations. Luckily we were on the end, so we only had one shared wall)
