Our long anticipated stay at this lovely place last weekend was not what we expected. It seems our entire building along the river front was inhabited by a young party set who came to drink, curse, and hang out.

Entire hotel is right on the water, slightly off of the lake. Beautiful area and very quiet. State park is right across the water and there is a free ferry, great for just taking in nature. Room was clean with wifi and a full kitchen. Staff was very professional and helpful. Pool was also great!
