Peaceful and relaxing for lunch

by Librafemme

We have had lunch here a few times, and enjoyed the woodsy riverside setting. The sandwiches and salads are good, and the service is friendly. After our meal, we walk down to the river and sit in the rustic Adirondack chairs that are placed right in the water. It’s so peaceful and relaxing to sit in the sun and just chill. We have never stayed at the inn, so I can’t comment on the accommodations, but I will say they look pretty basic.

Loved it

by ruler83

Stayed one night in the cabin/motel across the road from the main lodge. Lovely cosy rooms and nice bathroom. May be a big small for some people but we loved it. Small porch outside to enjoy with a drink. Great food and service on lodge across the road. Perhaps a bit pricey generally but ok for the area. Friendly staff all around. Would certainly go back.
