clean hotel with stove heater and spa tub

Posted Dec 26, 2017
Cons: mini bar, softer robes
Location: on a beautiful lake, was quiet since we were there in the winter. we were visiting family and went to the lakeport theatre, ukiah is close by, too.
my favorite part of this room besides the new furnishings and cleanliness was the fact that there was a private bathroom and in the space that most hotels would've just put a desk and chair there was instead a very nice spa tub with waterfall and jets. there was a back door that led to the porch seating area and views of the lake. there were rules about what can't be used in the tub and I had brought my own bath bomb that I couldn't use. I recommend putting a couple in the room that the hotel finds suitable for the tub so the guests can enjoy it.

Dear brittany, Thank you for taking the time to post such a thoughtful and positive review! We love hearing that guests were able to enjoy the beauty of the lake and its surroundings, as well as our modern décor and spotless rooms. We're also sorry to hear that you weren't able to enjoy the bath bomb you brought with you. Unfortunately, many of our guests have allergies and/or sensitivities to various smells, so we are unable to offer them in the rooms. We have also been advised they may cause increased wear and tear on the finish of the tub, as well as the jets mechanism. We hope to see you again soon!

The room was nice comfy and clean and the staff was very friendly. The view was the best part though. Waking up to a misty lake was very drramy.

Excellent & Comfortable

Posted Nov 14, 2017
Pros: Quiet area and lake front
Cons: Clean around the floorboards but who really looks!?
Location: Ten or so minutes up the road is a Pizza Place that was really good.
Booked a room here on a Thursday night as my boyfriend and I were passing through on our road trip up north. Definitely a summer spot so being close to winter it was pretty calm and the rates were cheap, was also a weekday). Upon arrival, the lodge was easy to find, even in the fog and rain. Staff was friendly, I don't think they were expecting my chipper and loud "HELLO!" Got us into our room which was very spacious, included mini fridge, microwave and stuff for coffee. Comfortable bed, wood floors, felt clean which is always important for me. Our reservation also offered an hour of kayaking which we unfortunately could not enjoy due to the cold weather but good to know for next time! The lakefront was super awesome too, even in the gloom. There was a nice gazebo with heater, a bbq, and a few fire pits with seating. If it weren't for the rain we would've stayed out there the entire time and watched the sunset over the mountains and lake. Amazing hidden gem and already want to find a reason to head back this way and stay again on AND off season!

Dear Sam, We are extremely happy to hear you enjoyed yourself at the lodge. And thank you for the detailed comments. Although we are definitely busier during the summer with our beach area and watercrafts, there is a serene beauty to be experienced out here during fall and winter as well. We also take great pride in our room presentation and service, so we love hearing that you enjoyed yourselves! See you next time... rain or shine!

Lovely lake location

Posted Oct 30, 2017 on Hotels
We arrived in the middle of a dark and rainy night. Imagine my surprise when we woke up to a sunny morning on the lake! Nice grounds, nice staff and the free breakfast (although basic) is appreciated.

Nice old fashioned hotel on the lake.

Posted Oct 20, 2017
Pros: View of lake.
Cons: Better breakfasts and build decks off of rooms facing lake.
Location: boating right there.
Old but updates have been done in the rooms. Staff are wonderful. If I was going up that way again, I would stay there for sure!

An hour of free Kayaking made for an excellent stay! My room was very nice with a little kitchenette and table and chairs out the back door overlooking the lake.
