We ate at the hawk eye grill for valentines day. Food was excellent, service not so much. Was not a very busy evening, so I am unsure of why our server did not deliver five star service. We were seated promptly, and given menus. It took over ten minutes for our server to finally

The expense for a room for one night is too expensive. I like this place I love it, but it will be a very special occasion for me to afford it. And making me have 200 characters is just crazy. I should be able to pick the words I want to use.

A very nicely done historic inn in an area with mostly awful accommodations. My wife and I are regular opera goers, and had finally tired of paying $200 a night for worn out roadside motels. We bit the bullet and paid The Otesaga's rates. We are so happy we did. Everything

The hotel will take reservations ahead. That is peak season, so you may want to try and book now.

"Room 340 is not inexpensive, but its size and extraordinary views make it a genuine value."
"The Lake side is best. Avoid rooms near outside party areas. Can be louder there."
"Most rooms at the back of the hotel overlook the lake and therefore are probably choice."
"just relax and enjoy yourself."
"Try for a lake view."
