We recently stayed at this delightful old resort with another couple. Our rooms were in the original lodge reminding us of mountain resorts from our youth (in the 50s) - plain decor - smallish rooms - window air conditioners - a bit dated.
We enjoyed dinner in the main dining room. Although we were told that men must wear jackets (ties optional), a significant number of men were without jackets. Not a big deal, since I feel one can never be overdressed. The meal was fine with old-fashioned service. Breakfast buffet was extensive.
Our rooms gave out onto the bay with views across the lake to the New York side. Our big disappointment was the fall foliage boat tour was cancelled due to windy conditions.
The bulk of the rooms are in smallish, lake-front cabins (dog friendly). Next time, I think I"d prefer a cabin.
Staff was helpful, especially in booking the room. BTW, we got a better price direct than with hotels.com.
