We stayed 2 nights in one of the upper level rooms. It was quiet, clean and roomy. It’s an easy walk to the main part of town. The staff are very helpful in recommending things to do. Parking is on site and easy.

Room was perfectly adequate, lovely and clean and comfortable. Staff are welcoming and attentive. We used the pool every day. A great temperature, especially for a swim in the rain! So close to town, Eat Street, lakefront, but very quiet.

Beds are firm, but not too firm! The outdoor steamer could be good for the trout, maybe?

Hi Jimmy O, we only have AC in the 2 Bedroom Superior Unit. If people do feel uncomfortable with the heat it is generally through February, December is not an issue
