I was impressed by good and bad reviews. It is clear you are in a 1883 hotel, this is not JW Marriott, your rooms are small and cozy, the decoration is perfectly balanced to the style, the restaurant is fun to watch. Is it noisy, yes, everything is wood and you hear steps and doors, this is the way old...

My room was in the main building. Upstairs. No elevator and no way to park close. It was a charming, well appointed room but VERY small. I'm sure when the Inn was built, it only had a single or double bed in it; the queen took up a lot of room. There is no dresser but the chifferobe has drawers....

We rented the most expensive room here to have a room facing the lake, and we were only about 20 feet from the lake. Wonderful view. The exterior of these buildings and the grounds are lovely. There's the long main building and three others I saw. We were in The Terrace by the lake. First of all, it has that...

We only stayed one night, wish we had planned ahead and made reservations! This trip was a spur of the moment get away! But back to the Inn, the owners have done a great job in keeping the Inn true to it's era without losing comfort for the patrons! The lake included a long dock to go out out and...

This was my third and final stay at the Lakeside Inn. For the money I do not believe it is a good value. Many things were wrong with our room. I paid extra for a lake view and was extremely disappointed to find that our room was in a very public location which made opening the blinds to enjoy the...

Dear Repeat Guest, We are very sorry that your room was too cold and uncomfortable for you. I also apologize for the misunderstanding regarding our taxes. We do have state regulated taxes that comprise our 13% tax rate. We will continue to improve our rooms, grounds and employee knowledge in hopes of improving our guests' experience. Thank you for sharing.

The setting is wonderful, the buildings and rooms are old but clean.The hotel buildings are built on an incline resulting in steps in the hall ways. lots of stairs no elevators. The beds in our room were very hard and not remotely comfortable. The grounds are lovely. The best part of the hotel is its location on the edge of...

The Lakeside Inn is perfectly placed in the heart of a quaint town. Shops and food within walking distance, a beautiful lake front view...what else could you ask for? More, because there is so much more...an amazing staff who helped me track down my missing purse that I dropped on the highway while paying a toll, they search phone numbers...

My lifelong best friend and I went for a weekend getaway because she was moving out of Florida. We stayed at the Lakeside Inn and did not have a good experience except for the fabulous location. We were cold and they only brought a sheet to us. They said the housekeeping crew was gone for the day and couldn't find...

The Inn is kind of fascinating in the sense of its history and longevity and we try to make a point of staying at historic properties, which is why we chose to stay there. It is both elegant, in the main building, and tired in the lakeside buildings where we stayed. Our Gables room was relatively clean and spacious with...

The room was beautiful, however, I would've given 5 stars had maintenance not awakened us at 9 a.m. doing work on the room above us. It was very loud. Not a great way to wake up. The front desk stated they shouldn't have started before 9..I replied, they should start after 11 when people have checked out. Otherwise, beautiful room,...
