We stayed on a Saturday evening end of May, 2014. The property was a lovely blend of new construction and antique pieces that really worked well! We stayed in the "Old Man" Room which had a view of the lake, though partically obstructed by the building, nothing was really lost. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony sipping wine while watching the schools of bait fish be driven around the cove. Sadly I had a new rod in the car from a trip to Bass pro shop on the way up but no tackle to fish with! Both my boyfriend and I agreed we will be back in the fall and will definitely have the fishing gear with us. The room was spacious, not claustrophobic like many Inn's are. Plenty of room to relax in front of the fire place. Heat and air conditioning kept the room at the perfect temperature. Guessing from the number of cars, the inn was about half full. we never heard anyone in adjoining rooms or walking the hallways. The two person whirl pool was heaven -- plenty big for us both (he's 6'2" I'm 5'8") Plenty of hot water, not an issue. Bead was incredibly comfortable (king feather pillowtop) just lofty enough, but not so soft to hurt your back. The room was CLEAN! smelled great too. Shower didn't have great pressure, but I'm sure that's a conservation effort. Bedding and towels were wonderful.
Check in was swift, I used a debit card, and was clearly told that I had to sign that I understood they would put a 150.00 hold on the card for additional room charges that might not clear for 10 days. I was fine with that, glad it was explained clearly. We were able to check in early which gave us another 2 hours to sightsee before dinner.
We had initially planned on eating at Tavern 27, but after a drive by of the place, we wanted something more upscale and changed plans. The "O" steak and seafood restaurant onsite was a great choice. Our waitress Linda was attentive, friendly and gave us some great advice on the menu. It wasn't a quiet romantic ambiance, it was a non annoying loud, but we could hear each other talk, so the evening was wonderful. He had steak, I had swordfish, and the spicy chicken/cashew rolls in bib lettuce was absolutely divine. I'd love to drive back just for that appetizer! Crème Brule for dessert was perfect also. Nice varied wine list price wise and the mixed drinks were good!
Definitely will be back! Thanks again!
