Room was big and comfortable. Property, view and landscaping were very nice. Great weather allowed for an early season swim which was a bonus!

We arrived and we're greeted nicely. The reception area is welcoming and there is a small gift shop area adjacent to the reception desk. Our room was clean and spacious and the air conditioning worked fine. Plenty of.parking. The view toward the lake is simply gorgeous and you can sit on the balcony and take it in. Dinner at the restaurant was fine; having bacon-wrapped pork medallions and maple glazed salmon for out entrees. Food was tasty, reasonably priced and well plated. There is a charge for buffet/or order from the menu breakfast We came for the music and we're not disappointed by the small gathering in the town hall. The museum is the other "don't miss" attraction and wandering the streets and shops is quite fun. What a great experience overall and I recommend Silver Dart as the place to stay.
