We would return to the Inn because the facilities and scenery are amazing. Oddly, however, during our stay in July 2014, there were long periods during the day and night when no staff were on site. They left a note taped to the front door instructing guests to use room keys to open the front door. The complimentary coffee bar ran out mid day and no one was around to notice. What if we had a toilet overflow or some more urgent need?
Also, our room "GardenView" was above the kitchen so we heard the radio playing when the staff was working in the kitchen. Even worse, the room trembled (like a helicopter was flying overhead) most of the evening -- perhaps while the dishwasher was running in the kitchen? It was weird.
Finally, I noticed the price of our backside room was the same as one with a lake view. Strange we didn't get any price break, considering the problems with our room.
We would have mentioned it when we checked out, but there was no one at the registration desk when we left (at about 11:00 am on a Friday...)
