Great location and amazing views. But the hotel needs some updating, especially the bathroom had a weird smell right from the moment we walked in. The room size is also very small, we had junior suite and it was not even size of a standard room in regular hotels.

The view from the hotel is beautiful and overall the hotel is well designed. The service at times could have been better. A more regular shuttle in and out of town would have been great

Wonderful lakefront hotel
We really enjoyed our 2 night stay. The view of the lake from our room was incredible! The room was nice, spacious, and clean. The restaurant was great, we ate breakfast there both mornings and dinner there one night following a long hike. The bartender was exceptionally lovely. Many reviews noted the distance from the main part of town, but we walked to dinner one evening along the lake and found it very enjoyable. And the cab ride home cost ~$5 USD. We definitely would stay here again.
