8/10 Very good

My major complaint is that the walls between rooms are ridiculously thin and allow even normal conversation and moderately-volumed TV to be heard in the adjacent rooms.

Nice view from the dining room. Friendly serving staff. We had a nice balcony with chairs for a view of the Lake. Very nice.

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.
