We booked this hotel for our wedding anniversary because of its situation as well as the description of its rooms and restaurant. We were not disappointed in any respect. Thank you.

A Room With a View

This is a nice hotel located across the street from the lake. Room had a beautiful view. There is a nice restaurant on location which is important as the room was not equipped for cooking. On a warm summers night, we wished we could have just opened the large patio door, but the bugs will get you, so better to use the supplied room fan. Bed was just OK. Also note that this is an older property and the walls are thin, so neighbors can be heard. Overall, the property is very nice and very convenient to route 6 when traveling to/from the west coast. Note also the staff are really nice people.
