We've been traveling to the Hotel Kenney for 35 years. Need I say it is one of our favorite places to "get away"?
That being said, Hotel Kenney still has some work to be done since the new owner took over in 2009. Some improvements have been made; new lighting, satellite TV, new outdoor chairs, an updated lounge area and bar. Some changes still need to be made, which include replacing the screen doors on the motel units and general painting. The boats need to replaced with lighter aluminum boats and new motors. Some changes baffle us, such as filling in the pool and closing the store. But these are small inconsequential items compared to the overall ambiance of Hotel Kenneys which keeps us returning year after year.
The scenery is breathtaking. The wildlife abundant. And, it is still fascinating, no matter how many times you watch the lock doors open and the boats stream out. The fishing is world-class.
The staff is dedicated and returning year after year makes us feel as if we are reuniting with long lost relatives. We miss Andy and his care of the grounds. Carol will soon be retiring after many years of dedicated service, keeping our room spotless. Sarah is a gem in the dining room and at the front desk. Karen and Brenda at the front desk take the time to answer any question and help out in any way they can.
The rooms are comfortable and meet all our needs. The "Inn" rooms have 2 double beds, a couch, cocktail table, desk, satellite tv, suitcase stand (for 2 suitcases), large shelf to keep your snacks and a mini refrigerator. Outside the sliding door are loungechairs to relax and watch the boats and lock activity.
The daily rate includes your room and 3 meals. We find the quality of food improved with the new owner. The quantity still overwhelms us. Lunch and dinner include soup, salad, entree and dessert. The food is all freshly made. (Not sure about the comments about bottled dressing). This is one of the few places that serve "real" maple syrup. We are very happy with the meals we received.
Kenney's will rent you a boat with a motor and will wrap and freeze your fish for you. Fishing guides are also available.
