Lake front views. Gables
Great location, lake front views, recently renovated. Excellent service. The only issue was the shower was extremely loud when in use. We joaked you need earmuffs to take a shower.

Great hotel
This is a lovely hotel with a great view and location. The king room overlooking the lake was top notch and quite a self contained little apartment. The hosts Peter and Penny are friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.
