If you appreciate historic properties, this is "the place" for you! This property is listed on the National Historic Register and just emanates charm, class and history. That said, this property is 130+ years old and thus is not the best choice for those expecting amenities like fridges or coffee pots in the rooms. For those who enjoy walking through... More

This review is for the grounds only, as we didn't stay at the resort. It's interesting from a historic point of view, and sitting on the deck with a drink is a real treat. We didn't eat or stay here.

As we sit on the veranda of this magnificent Old Lady, you gaze out over the lake and sit back and enjoy the sun, the wind and the view. This grand old lady has a treasure trove of history and memories. The food is always good, the wait staff makes the meal all that more pleasant. One of my favorites... More

I spotted this online and reserved a room hoping it wasn't a disaster. Oh no-it was 'as advertised'. The oldest continuously operating hotel in Florida on a beautiful lake and we had a lakefront room. Really a treat. Expansive windows on the lake-sunset was magnificent-well so was the morning! Very well cared for. Great little bar and restaurants too. Our... More

Last Saturday we had a very bad dining experience at the Lakeside Inn Restaurant. First of all we sat in the bar to have a drink and the place didnt look very clean. Glass smudged and just did not look well kept. The chair that my husband sat in was about to fall apart and when he told the waiter... More

I'm saddened to read that other reviewers felt the same as I about their experience at this charming and historic inn. The wait staff was marginal, at best. The location and charm of the Inn must keep the management satisfied with the mediocre service. The pianist was exceptional and added quite a bit of charm to the evening. But the... More

A restaurant with the charm of years gone by. The food was very good and the presentation was nice, as well. The service was good, but not exceptional. The cocktail I had before dinner was not generous. I thought that using the same silverware for the appetizer, salad, main entree, and desert left a bit to be desired. I think... More

Dining Room is classically beautiful and the bar cozy and delightful. Wine selections somewhat limited, but good.

Great older hotel with lake views. The restaurant serves very good food, the bar is comfortable with reasonable prices and a fun Irish band on Saturday night. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, Floyd in the restaurant as a real hoot!!! We will go back soon.

Thank bobhelms826
