The scenery and decor of the hotel was absolutely beautiful. Such a relaxing environment and various areas to sit and take in the beauty. Staff was awesome and available to help at any given moment. Plan on having a yearly visit.

The room was nice, though the bathroom was incredibly small/tight space, and the bed was too hard. The staff was very helpful and cheerful.

The public spaces of this hotel have not been modernized but are true to their original plan which I liked. The bedrooms were small but adequate. There was a nice buffet breakfast which you could take to the sprawling porches and eat while looking at the lake.
