5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

We loved our beautiful room for two nights over the Memorial Day weekend. The jacuzzi tub was a soothing treat. The view was gorgeous and the room very comfortable. When I wasn't feeling well one morning while my husband went hiking, I was not disturbed and was left a breakfast food basket outside my door. You will enjoy your stay.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We stayed in room #9. The room had a great mattress, clean, and great view of the pond in the back but I only gave this inn a 4 because of the smoking issue. This establishment indicates that it is a non-smoking but they allow smokers to smoke on the balcony outside the back of the room and in the garden area. So, if you want fresh air-forget it. You can open the door to your room that leads to the balcony and smokes fills up your room. It's rather disgusting. Also, the knob in the shower should be replaced because there is stem that you have to pull out for the shower to work and it's hard to grab onto and push back in.
Other than that, it was a nice place, close to town, and golf.

We stayed in room 1. No WiFi in this particular room. Had it in the restaurant so my device was not the issue. Rooms seem to have been updated. Loved the mattress. Wish I knew what kind it was. I would buy one. The birds were a bit noisy by the lake early in the morning. Food was decent in the restaurant. Would stay again but not in room 1.

The Bass Lake Inn has so much potential to be better than it is and the experience was quite disappointing. What was good: The pictures on the website are reflective of the room and size. The fireplace was a nice touch, the bed was firm and the over-sized tub with jets was enjoyable after a long evening. The hot water was really hot and that's a plus in any hotel. Unfortunately, the bad outweighed the good.

Checking in was odd as we had to check in at the restaurant. We drove 2.5 hours to the Inn and later learned that some people were offered some sort of food voucher to the Tavern that could be used for the Sunday brunch. That would have been nice since the continental breakfast in the room consisted of apples, boxed cereal, granola bars and orange juice in the fridge. No one asked if we wanted to make reservations or asked if we needed information on the area even after we told her we'd never been to the Inn and were not familiar with the area. We never saw the "lake" as we were in room #6 which faced the very busy RT 44 and is on the ground level. At first we didn't think anything of it, until we went to sleep and were woken up several times by the traffic, plus our very loud upstairs neighbors. There is zero soundproofing between floors.

If you decide to stay at the Bass Lake Inn, make sure you are not on the ground level and ask to face the lake. Also inquire about eating at the Tavern. Although I've read mixed reviews about the food, the restaurant was very busy last night and today.

I'd always wanted to stay here and was really disappointed. There really is no customer service from the staff or extra touch to make the stay feel special. Maybe if I knew to ask for a room on the lake, I could have overlooked the old stained carpet and maybe found the "to go" breakfast charming.

Room Tip: Choose upstairs room and rooms facing the lake. Ask for another room if you are given Room 6 as it f...

My girlfriend and I spent the weekend for a local get-away, and as expected, loved our stay! The staff, the accommodations, and the restaurant (dinner on Saturday) were out of this world! We will be making reservations for a return in September- maybe with a round at Chardon Lakes included. DO NOT MISS THIS INN AND TAVERNE!!! It is truly a hidden treasure.

Attended Bass Lake Tavern's Mother's Day Brunch yesterday 5/11/14. Food was awful! Powdered gritty scrambled eggs?! Raw breakfast sausage and burnt bacon. Crab/Lobster shells in every spoonful of bisque. Most restaurants drown salads in dressing, this was not the case here...Ceaser salad was a half bowl of browning romaine lettuce, with four croutons and tremendously dry. Pancakes were undercooked (raw in the center) and tasted like the cardboard box they probably came out of. “Country Breakfast” had no toast/biscuits/muffin option.

Servers were rude and had very nasty attitudes. I understand that they were beyond busy, but if you can't handle crowds, then don't be a waitress.

Seating area was on second floor, very difficult for elderly members of our family to navigate. Air condition was on full blast the entire time we were there. Area smelled of feces and urine, almost if the restrooms below were being vented directly to the room on the second floor.

If prices were low and we got the meal we did, well then you get what you pay for, but prices were in the mid-high range and for the poor quality and improper preparation of food, the these prices were outrageous.

We drove down from Geneva and it was well worth it. Our server was very nice. The bruschetta was the best I've ever had. Everyone at the table loved their food. The decor is outdated but we would return for the great food. All the dessert is homemade.
