Oops, I got caught enjoying the Guest's hot-tub :) It is there for all of you, though, and just so you know I keep it squeaky clean, and it's the best spot in Lake City for the sunrise or for stargazing! Thanks for your memories...More

Rooms overlook the town, convenient to everywhere; staff very responsive to any requests. Onsite owner keeps things taken care of. We plan to stay here again next year when we come for the annual elk hunting season.

Dear Guest, this is of course bad news to me. We keep the valves on the stoves turned off for safety when not in use, this was the reason you wouldn't have been able to light them. But I do provide overnight staff to assist...More

If you read the prior reviews, you will see what this hotel is all about. The positives are all true. The owner comes out and heartily greets the new guests and makes a great welcome. The rooms are immaculate and extremely clean, recently updated. The...More
