Breakfast in The Shore at the start of a busy day and the omellette, fingerling potatos and coffee were all great. Great presentation and great atmosphere, even though it was dreary outside. Love to be here in the summer or fall!

I attended a wedding reception here. What a great place by the lake. Room outside for gatherings, the banquet rooms and hotel rooms are clean and pretty. The outside tiki bar is great.
