    Great Stay

    The beds were incredible! They were so comfortable. The room is dated, but I didn't mind. The wifi kept cutting in and out, but we didn't go to watch tv.

    Weekend stay

    Me and my husband stayed here for our Anniversary weekend. Was very quiet and peaceful. Small place with our own entrance, interactions with other people was very limited. Was a nice view of the lake from our window. Rooms were very nice and clean. The caretaker of the place was very nice and helpful with places to go in the area. We extended our stay and extra day because of the area and the secludedness.

    I very much enjoyed my stay at The Harbor Light Inn. The bed was fantastic. I had room number 8 on the upper floor. It is nicely re-done and Very comfortable and pleasant. The room was cleaned thoroughly between our stay and the previous tenants. The staff practices safe housekeeping. The window AC worked incredibly well given the temperature was above 90 during our trip. We traveled with a Siberian Husky and she was comfortable and could stay cool in the room. The view of the lake is also worth the stay. There are grills and a fire pit for larger groups. I will be staying here again on my next trip. Plenty of boat charter options available in the area. Good dining and shopping is not too far away from this location- about 5 to 10 min drive.
