Beautiful room with fireplace, whirlpool tub and balcony overlooking the lake. Room was very clean as were all areas we were in. Check in was very easy and front desk lady was helpful in explaining COVID protocol for breakfast and on site restaurant as this was our first visit. A wonderful place to relax and unwind.

Beautiful view with the leaves in full change. Picture perfect except that it is literally next to a main roadway. I was not about to enjoy the balcony or open the window without excess noise of cars/sirens. It got stuffy fast. Unfortunate about location. But the atmosphere is really romantic and the food in the restaurant was very tasty. The server was very friendly and efficient. All staff seemed to really enjoy working there and were very helpful.

We were married at the inn on the lake in 2014 and went there for our second anniversary and again this year for anniversary number 6. The restaurant is simply beautiful and has a warm romantic feeling. The wait staff we encountered this time were nice and friendly and checked on us many times throughout the meal to make sure we were enjoying it. We were wished a happy anniversary two or three times and were made to feel good. In past visits there was perhaps a little more attention paid, where staff offered to take an anniversary photo and that didn’t happen this time. Last time they actually took a photo, printed it and gave us a copy of the photo from their camera. Not this time. The wine was good, the meals were good. I had pasta marina 6/10 ( which had 5 scallops and three mussels and a trace of perhaps 1 tsp of lobster so it was meager but the sauce was delicious. It was surrounded with mussels. The mussels kind of seemed like they were just boiled in ocean water with no garlic, no green onion, no wine, just boiled mussels and they were ok but not a re-do, The chicken cordon bleu for my husband he says was 7/10. He said it tasted like the chicken wasn’t made there, perhaps a precooked/ processed chicken breast that he said was just ok but not great. For appetizers he had the beet and goat cheese salad which he really enjoyed although the beets seemed a little oversized and perhaps canned rather than fresh but he said he really enjoyed it( although he had had better elsewhere). We had bacon wrapped scallops which were delicious and 9/10 for sure. The bruschetta we didn’t really finish as the bread was not toasted under the wet toppings and was 4 simple slices of raw baguette with tomatoes and 2 had mozzarella and two had processed Parmesan. None of the food was quality and probably would disappoint a connoisseur. The ambiance was nice and the company was lovely, the mood was romantic and we enjoyed ourselves. The $150+ meal did not include dessert and we went elsewhere to have a dessert and coffee. If you look at the 4 phots you will see what we paid in excess of $150 for. The service was good for the most part, a refill on the glasses of water would also have been nice but didn’t happen. This was a slow night for the restaurant with perhaps under 15 patrons so the service really could have been stellar if they tried.

Oliver’s was a very appealing atmosphere - busy but relaxed. We made a reservation and were glad we did on Friday night. The food choices were plentiful and the waitress was great. My husband had the rib special - he said it was “good” but that’s not his highest complement for ribs. I had the curry chicken which smelled amazing but was bland and almost tasteless. Both of us had wet linen napkins when we sat down to eat. Obviously had not had enough time in the dryer. Haha. Overall, it was fair. Seemed like a decent place but maybe we just didn’t pick food choices that they excelled at.

This property has so many wonderful memories for me, I continue to stay here and recommend to friends and family. But sadly, the hotel has failed to invest to update its rooms to remain current. We rented a 2 story executive suite and I’m embarrassed by the state of the decor. The room was sadly outdated and in desperate need of a update. The location, layout and restaurants are still incredible, but management needs to invest in this property. Until then I will no longer recommend or support this hotel.
