Guest reviews for Lake Hotel and Cottages - Inside the Park

5 out of 5
The Lake Hotel is a wonderful, comfortable place. We were able to find it using pre-downloaded maps on our Garmen. Google comes in and out around that area, so we could not count on that for directions. Once there though, it was a bit unclear where to go to park or what to do with the car while checking in, and the young staff were not very well informed on this. But that is really the only complaint I have as the rest of our one-night stay was wonderful. We were even able to get into the dining room for dinner even though we did not have a reservation. The scenery is lovely, complete with wandering elk. And we took a nice little walk up the shoreline to some near-by shops. All in all a very nice time. Thank you

Internet was Ethernet in room only. We had to borrow an adapter from the front desk ... which did not work. When I reported it,she just shrugged and said sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t. The room was clean but basic. The restaurant menu was nice but food was ok and service was slow. I would not stay there again ... it was not worth the cost
