Perfect location to walk on main street. Clean accomodations and friendly staff. If it is to cold to go out sice stay in with a bar with beautiful views. Rooms with mountain views are amazing with nice balconys.

Rooms were beautiful. Complimentary water sports for families. (If you were to rent at the surf shops plan on $100+ for a SUP and kayak rental) Dancing bears restaurant was ok... they were out of everything! But the hotel was great. Preferred over the lake house sister property.

When is check in and check out?
Check in at 4 and check out at 11. They will hold your luggage for you if you get there earlier than 4 and your room isn’t ready. They will get all your information into computer & call you when room is ready so you just need to go back & pick up keys.

Albany airport is about 2 hours away and would be the best option. I would rent a car and drive to Canada but be sure to bring your passports. Enjoy!
