“A wonderful getaway inn!”
Reviewed 26 June 2004

We stayed at Friends Lake Inn last fall and are returning again this year. What a perfect getaway inn. Gorgeous rooms, all with a view of the lake (just across the road) or their lovely little pond in the back.

We loved hanging out in their delightful 'pub" and enjoyed the restaurant with excellent menu choices and wine list. The staff was very gracious and friendly.

Lots of hiking trails are nearby and the lake is a pleasant diversion. They can arrange fishing and other outdoor activities both in winter and summer.

If you are looking for complete relaxation in a country setting, this is the place!

We visited Friends Lake Inn last year for New Year's Eve (3 nights) and had a wonderful time. We stayed in an Adirondack Room and loved the romance and coziness. The restaurant is great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The only thing missing is afternoon tea, in the winter it is nice to come back from a day of adventure to a hot tea or coffee (they make a great hot chocolate too). We are returning this year with our parents and hoping to make this an annual family trip.
