“Five star staff”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Booked two rooms on the advice of tripadvisor reviews. From the moment we were greeted at the desk to when we checked out, the staff could not have been better. We were there to attend a concert and the inns location is perfect. We arrived early and one of our rooms was ready the second was completed right away. The housekeeping staff went out of there way to make sure we were happy with the rooms and they were spotless! We walked to Patricks pub for dinner (2 min) then to Meadowbrook for the concert(10 min). The walk back was a lot better than fighting the traffic thats for sure. They offer a continental breakfast that worked out just fine with staff making fresh hot waffles to order and a good selection of bagels,toast,danish and cereal. Both couples attend one or two concerts a year and agree we will now stay at the Fireside every time. There are a lot of options in the area for rooms that we have tried but the staff here made all the difference.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have a balcony.

We stayed just one night - seeing a concert at Meadowbrook which is walking distance away. Great staff - from the ladies cleaning the rooms to the front desk and beyond everyone was super friendly and helpful. The rooms were immaculate, there is a nice outdoor pool - also well maintained. Didn't swim in the indoor one but looked equally nice. Continental breakfast was a surprise - everything from cereal to waffles. Location as mentioned was very convenient - we could walk to the concert, walk to a restaurant and convenience store. Exceeded my expectations.

Room Tip: All seemed equally pleasant.

We checked on a Friday and stayed for the week. We went there for bike week and had rode it up. They had towels ready for everyone’s bike to wipe them down. They had plywood for the stand. The people were awesome and very helpful. The breakfast that they have was great. Very helpful with finding a place dinner. Even with all the bike around this place was quite. The room was very nice and had a patio for us to relax on and a hot tub down the hall. There is a small airport down the road and had 3 planes go over head (small cessna planes) when we were in the room. I would go back and stay here again and again.

We stayed only one night but can't wait to return. Great location to lake activities. From check-in to check-out everything was excellent. Grounds were excellent, rooms were spacious and very comfortable and a great continental breakfast.

It's really the people here, not the property that delivers consistency. The staff are always accommodating and helpful. The rooms do offer a clean, safe place to rest with the normal amenities.

We chose this hotel because I like the Fireside (from my many trips to Maine). We went to a concert and it was a very short 10 min walk to the doors of the venue. Patricks Pub is also right across the street for a meal.

They also made an extra effort to provide a room (above and beyond) since we booked very late and this hotel was essentially full. For that, we are grateful and send our many thanks!!

Room Tip: Stay here for concerts!

Stayed at the Fireside Inn a 3rd time and it was as enjoyable as the first 2 times! The rooms are a little outdated, but always clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were great, and the service was excellent. The breakfast is better than any other "continental" breakfast I've had at other hotels.

Room Tip: I requested a ground level room since I didn't want to worry about dragging my kids up and down...

I stayed here the night before the Big Lake Half Marathon with 2 friends (we stayed here last year the night before the race as well). This hotel has some really nice touches which make it stand out, such as free newspapers in the lobby and free whoopie pies upon check-in. Also, it was nice to have a refrigerator and microwave in the room. The room was small but generally clean and comfortable. The water in the sink smelled bad but I don't think that is the hotel's fault. The hotel is a little dated but they do a good job of making the lobby very inviting and cozy. I noticed popcorn in there are night which was fun. The pub across the street, Patrick's Pub, is a decent choice for dinner. Please be aware that there is no elevator (though there are only 2 floors). The staff is really friendly and helpful. I panicked when I saw a dog at check-in (they allow dogs) and asked the staff member if our room could be far away from the dog. Turns out they have a separate wings for people with pets and we never heard them. Overall it was a good experience.
