2/10 Poor

The lake view is beautiful. The resort is older so you expect it to be a bit dated. But our room was musty smelling, had no heat and needed a complete deep cleaning. The bathroom had broken floorboard and extremely low ceilings. Which meant the shower head was very low. We asked for an upper level room to get away from the musty smell. But they tried telling us they were full. Interesting since there were only about 20 cars in the lot.
