A beautiful Hotel in a tranquil lakeshore setting where the staff say "Good Morning and How are you?" We stayed for 3 nights in a lakeshore suite and enjoyed every minute of our stay from the sumptious breakfast to the evening dinner....just one of those very rare places that meet and surpass all your expectations.
