It also has a mid-century modern feel to it, which we enjoyed. Pros: -large common room, not overcrowded, with fireplace, ample tables for reading, chatting, pool and foosball for the...

Hi Vestrib, Thanks for the gold medal! It’s a shame I didn’t catch you out on the hill, but it was still a treat to host you and your gorgeous pup—dogs are family, too, of course, and needn’t be left at home. You know where to find us when you pass this way again! Adam L. Innkeeper Lake House

Most everyone was very friendly and helpful, very accommodating. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Family friendly, pet friendly, but a little more pricey than we are used to paying. I would recommend it to others, including large groups.

Good location at the end of Main Street. You can walk anywhere. Friendly staff. Rooms have a "motel" feel, but are clean and upgraded. This place has a chill bar area with pool. I would stay here again.
