15 out of 10 stars 🌟
This hotel was absolutely fabulous!!! I loved every minute of my stay. The only thing thst was a little off putting. On the day of checkout the front desk was so rude and told me every one is complaining about my dog barking, but it wasn't my dog. It was the room adjacent to mine.... But still an excellent stay despite one person's rude behavior....

Delays checking in cause they were running low on sheets. Decided to walk around town until my room was ready but when I tried calling later to see if my room was ready, I waited on hold for 12 minutes but no one came back to the phone.

A good place for a reunion of friends
4 of us women went to the Lakeside Inn for 2 nights. It was a reunion for us and the Inn was a good central location to meet. It is a beautiful area and the hotel was the right place to stay. We ate breakfast each morning on the veranda which was very nice! Our waiter was really good too. The hotel bathrooms could use some updating/replacing old tubs...Also, a good pressure washing on the outside would be nice too. But, overall it is a good place to stay when in the area. I would stay again.
