“Awesome weekend”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Loved our trip there. This place was so quiet and relaxing. One of the best weekend getaways we have had in a long time. I loved that fact that I could bring my dog with us. The weather was perfect and we really had fun. Cant wait to come back.

We enjoyed our stay at this resort very much. After a long day in town it was nice to come back and enjoy sitting by the fireplace and making smores. There was a kitchen to use to actually cook our meals if we wanted, which I thought was great. I loved the Keurig with all the different coffees and coca that was available. Tim and his staff were very friendly. We were all treated like we were family. They also have a pond that has koi fish in it and fish food that you can buy for a quarter if you want to feed them. The fish come right up to you and they are beautiful. My kids loved feeding the fish. This was the best hotel that we have stayed at on a family trip, because you actually feel like you are welcome and it was very peaceful and quiet. Thanks to Tim and his staff for making us feel so welcome.

This was actually our second trip to the Inn Der Bach Resort. Last year we were looking for a mini getaway to have a weekend of relaxation. We stayed at the Inn Der Bach and absolutely loved it. We loved it so much we just took a second trip to the resort and had a great time again. It is so relaxing and peaceful and our kids had a great time, whether it was exploring the grounds or sitting in the lodge relaxing by a fire. The staff was great and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. On our first trip we met the manager Tim and when we went this trip had the pleasure of seeing Tim again. Tim took the time to give us a history lesson on the Shay House and also told us some great stories about movies and some celebrities that have been at the resort. After a fun filled day we were back at the lodge relaxing and we got a nice surprise, two great baskets delivered from Tim and his staff. It included chocolate covered strawberries, sparking cider, fruit and snack for the kids. What a great touch! We would highly recommend the resort to everyone. We have already booked our third trip for this February, and can't wait because there will be snow this trip. Thank you to Tim and all the Inn Der Bach staff for making our getaway fun and relaxing.

The grounds are nice but need some TLC, painting, gardening and general care of the property. There's a creek and pond that are nice. The patio area and stairs need to be painted and cleaned up. There were missing pieces of wood along the railing. There were cigarette buds on the porch.
We stayed in unit 10. It was clean and nice. The couches were new and comfortable but the general decor was dated. The locks need to be redone. The bed was too soft for us. There is a full kitchen which is nice if you want to cook. We didn't use any of it. The Keurig was a great and the basket of goodies was nice.
We liked that it was quiet and away from the city.

Stayed at room 8.The unit was newly renovated with country style decor , clean with fully equipped kitchen.The grounds are spacious and quiet.
Tim , the manager was very pleasant and accommodating.A fruit basket with fresh fruits, sparkling cider, popcorn and chocolate covered strawberries was a nice welcome touch from the management .We enjoyed our stay at Inn Der Bach and have booked our winter getaway with a larger group.It is not a resort but a great value for your buck.

I stayed for 1 day during Labour Day week end. Staff is very friendly. Rooms and bed are clean. Enjoyed staying there. The price they charged was very competitive as of others during the same time.
Will recommend strongly.

Room Tip: King bed rooms are much better than queen ones. Will prefer that.

This was our first stay at the Inn Der Bach...and we found our chalet to be clean and comfortable...and the on-site Manager Tim, goes the extra mile to make his guest feel like home and family...a wonderful touch at the end of our stay was the thank-you basket waiting at our door step the day we were going to check out....it was caring and giving touch, We especially raved about the fresh, delicious chocolate cover strawberrys!!
