We live in California and visit Walker and Leech Lake once a year as we have family that lives in the area. The Chase is great. It's a hotel that is reminiscent of the Overlook - ghost stories and all! Very cool, some original details still present. The rooms are updated, new, have all the upgrades. Beds are comfortable (pillows not so much). The restaurant is great. Bar is great. Water activities are great - but they are often booked up, so reserve in advance. Also, they are on the high end for their rates for renting watercraft and jet skis. Also, I hope there are not any price increases in the near future, because it's already at the high end of pricing. Staff is very friendly and helpful - and willing to help!
I found the housekeeping staff to be below average. They didn't do a very good job and often left our kitchen uncleaned and didn't always change the sheets or straighten up. Very odd. When we asked them one day if they would mind changing the sheets, they glared at us. We've noticied this in the past when we've stayed at the Chase. Also, our A/C unit was very loud and rattled a lot at night. May have just been the unit in the room we were in, but it didn't make for a restful night's sleep.
Other than that, we love the Chase. Great staff, nice people, terrific surroundings!
Tip: Book a lakeview room if you can. Lovely view...
