    Great location. Great service. Good facilities. Perfect base for a Lake land adventure. We loved our stay and want to return soon. Our family room was more than adequate with great views of the lake. Thanks for a great stay.

    It was really good. Can't wait to go back. Enjoyed the time with the lake, the food was good and the atmosphere was exactly what i wanted for a weekend away. Good parking too. Will definitely be back!!
