We stayed here on a whim, and it was a pretty nice looking hotel. They are currently undergoing renovations, and while we were here the bottom floor was torn apart, and it smelled like paint.
The hotel is situated on the lake, and the amenities are nice, I really enjoyed use of a bath tub after staying in places that only have showers. They also provide heated sheets, which is nice because it got below freezing outside the night we stayed. Internet is metered, which also seems to be the norm in this neck of the world.
The owner's wife was also very nice, it's nice to see a small family owned business doing well.
