The view of the lake was very nice. This is an older property and is in need of updating: the carpet in the rooms should really be replaced as it’s age gives the room a musty smell, but it’s not unbearable. A/C works well, good water pressure in the shower, bed was comfortable. Service in the restaurant was excellent, food was fine (we had breakfast and dinner there). All in all our stay was fine, and reasonably priced for the area, which books up very fast.

The location is good with lots to see and do near by. The room is dated but clean. Our room had a smell that we couldnt shake unless the fan/ac unit was going full time. The lady that checked us in was far from pleasant and almost rude. We were so taken aback as everywhere we have been so far people were so nice. The lady that did our check out was a lot more pleasant.
