Went for lunch with some friends. The menu is not large, but sufficient with generous portions. Very quiet, relaxing atmosphere and service was great - attentive without being bothersome and no push to get us to finish. Will undoubtedly go there again..

Great Hotel . Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms had excellent view of the lake. The only problem was the people upstairs in the room above could be heard walking at all hours of the night and moving furniture, I actually thought I was below a break room or the laundry room

The hotel is fairly new which is readily apparent. The service staff was very efficient. The rooms were clean and spacious. I loved the bathrooms as they were large unlike most hotel bathrooms. The pool and spa tub were a blessing after the cold days. The hotel staff easily remedied any concerns we had throughout our stay.
