Location of the property is good yet not outstanding. Room service comes in a bag. It is about time to revert to proper room service. Eating with plastic forks and knives is not our understanding of a great hotel. The hotel need a major renovation. Definitely not value for quality, specially when requiring a minimum stay of three night. We will not return to this hotel.

The inn itself has a comfortably elegant ambience. The food was beyond spectacular and the service impeccable but friendly. We had booked one of the more traditional, more atmospheric rooms facing the lake. However, we were upgraded to a new (2012) suite with a full, spiffy, completely-equipped kitchen and a secluded, treed terrace right on the lake. However, though it was luxurious we found the decor sterile and austere. There was only one painting on the otherwise bare walls and the long hallway to our room was barren and unwelcoming, like an upscale Holiday Inn.
