Poor - 1.5 out of 5

I would not recommend this...

Liked: The rooms were clean and linens were fresh. Staff was courteous and friendly.
Disliked: The driveway was extremely steep to get to the parking lot. It was a bit nerve wrecking going up and down the steep driveways. Going out the exit, I was worrying that I might bottom out the front of the car. I had an SUV. If I had a car, I think I might have hit bottom. The beds were way to firm. We did not get a good night sleep and out backs ached the next morning. The walls were thin. We could easily hear conversations in the next room and the person in the next room had a coughing fit around 4:00 in the morning and then he turned his TV on. There was a critter of some type scurrying through the ceiling. The water pressure in the shower was extremely low. It got better when other tenants were not using water, but was still very weak pressure.

Liked: Breathtaking view of Lake! Comfortable bed, which is rare! Continental breakfast was decent, having Folgets coffee was Heaven! We arrived on a Wednesday when Tiki wasn't open- out of seadon- but they opened bar up just for us for a few drinks before dinner! A pleasant surprise! It's very close to Harbir, town and wineries! Definitely will return!
Disliked: Porch lights on back deck, too bright, lower dimmed would've allowed us to enjoy deck in evening.

Not a relaxing or comfortable...

Liked: The view, that?s about it. There?s a Tiki Bar looks nice but closed for the season.
Disliked: The walls are paper thin, the person next door left the bathroom fan on and left, the sound was loud and annoying, couldn?t sleep for the noise. Could hear the TV the night before, could hear the bathroom/toilet sounds, could hear the person cough. The driveway entrance and exit, especially the exit was in need of repair and treacherous. For a 1.3 mile no outlet road there was a lot of traffic noise. Pillows uncomfortable.

Loved Watkins Glenn and Finger...

Liked: View of the lake!
Disliked: Very outdated! Microwave didn?t work, no coffee pot in the room. The road up to the Inn was terrible. We could not get the motorcycle trailer up and had to leave it somewhere else. Major thoroughfare for big trucks to a salt mine. Would not stay there again.
