This inn is an experience in contrasts. The location and public spaces are lovely, as the place is a large old log lodge with cozy spaces, furniture, and decor. There are beautiful views of the lake and adirondack chairs on the lawn with the view.
Virtually all of the staff were great; with the exception being the bartender on our second night. She was curt and gave the impression that she would rather be anywhere except serving us.
However, the room was not very good. While again a lovely view of the lake and of good size, the queen bed (I didn't measure but pretty sure it was a double) was really uncomfortable. The bath is detached (you have to go into hall to access it) which was made clear on the website, but it is so tiny you have to put stuff on the floor and the shower is at the most a 36x36 camp shower. And if there are two of you, don't forget your towel which is in the room. You can hear and understand the conversations going on downstairs and next door, and likely they can do the same.
However, the restaurant is wonderful and I have provided a review under restaurants.
