Kind family and servers. Comfortable rooms with hot tubs rooms available. Paddle boats for use, weather permitting on the adjoining lake. Wonderful meals served for supper, banana splits, choose your own ice cream, etc, with Mean Marv scooping your requests. Come morning, coffee, juice and warm food, again greet your day, and get you motivated for another.......Nice getaway, quiet walks...

Found this little gem a few years ago and have returned every year for a relaxing day and evening. We stay in one of the out buildings instead of the main lodge. We always get the fireplace / hot tub room. Very large rooms! We love to go up to the main lodge and sit on the porch overlooking the...

We have been coming to the Shack for about 15 years. The first time we came, it was the first time in years that I could sit in a tub without our children knocking, saying, "Mom, Mom". Since then it is our choice over the other bed and breakfasts we have tried. Very peaceful, for sleeping, walks, for getting restored....

Great bed and breakfast. Great place to get away for the weekend or just a night. You can get a room with a hot tub and/or fireplace. Each room looks like a log cabin. The food is very delicious. Free banana splits at night.

Website didn't do it justice. Beautiful, peaceful spot. Lovely buildings and landscaping. We had a room in Livery East and were really impressed.

My wife and another couple share a short anniversary getaway and could not have been more happy with our short stay at The Shack.
