I don't know if the other reviewers met someone different than I did upon check in, but they couldn't have been nicer. The person at check in was super friendly and helpful, chatted with me and my boyfriend and kindly answered any questions we had. Even offered to make a call for us to set up a sea plane ride since there is no cell phone service in most of Long Lake.
We got one of the cottages # 6 and while the furnishings were a bit dated, it was clean and cute and had a great view of the lake & sunset. And the best part was the gas fireplace in the living room. It was also very large and well stocked with pots & pans all the needed kitchen items !!! Coffee makings were provided and the kitchen had a stove and fridge. A great deal at an great price !!!!
I did read in the info binder that was left on the table the rules regarding no guests on the property and to be honest it didn't bother me at all. I stayed there to have a quiet, relaxing vacation without a bunch of loud visitors and non guests coming in an out of the property. The grounds were well kept and tailored to familys and small groups wanting to relax in peace.
An added plus ......I left my camera battery and charger plugged into an outlet when we left and when I realized it and called to see if it had been found they went and checked, and found it and quickly mailed it back to me !!
Had a great time and would recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy a low key time with out a lot of noise and distractions. It is a small lakeside hotel in a small town, so don't go expecting a four star hotel and you won't be disappointed !!!!
