This is a wonderful hotel right out of history. Built in the 1800s not much of that charm has changed. We better booked 2 rooms, each with a queen sized bed/bath. The beds were nice and they sent up extra pillows. Hotel staff was friendly and you cannot beat the charm of hanging out in the large lake front porch. This hotel is right on the lake. The large pier doc is just out front. This includes a swim beach, a small kiddie pool and a splash park. Many restaurants are close by and it is in front of the main park. This park has playgrounds, shuffleboard, tennis, basketball, mini golf and much more. This is a great getaway. The entire island area is private and you pay a $22 per person fee to gain access. This let's you enjoy all those amenities. We rented a gold court for $16 an hour and drove around looking at all the vintage cottages on the island. This is a great getaway.
