Did not stay at the hotel, only ate at the restaurant. The food was fantastic and the service was great. Also has the best view in Ashland! Full bar has a limited selection but has quality options - local craft beers, top shelf liquor. Can’t wait to stop again.

"There are only five rooms; the best lake views are toward the middle of the building."
