We stayed at the Lakeshore to celebrate our anniversary. It was a splendid stay--we stayed in the Presidential suite, which is truly amazing. The views are remarkable, the friendly service of Jackie and Dan are great, and the house is quite impressive, especially the presidential memorabilia there. A museum-quality collection. We spent our time on the lakeshore enjoying the sun and sand and water. The beach was beautiful and almost empty, which was great. The water was perfect, the beach amenities provided by the B and B were excellent, and the experience was splendid.
My only complaint is the breakfast, which was fine, but . . . for almost $400 a night, after taxes, I had assumed we would get a remarkable gourmet breakfast. We got great granola and muffins, but all self-serve. Granted, it was a good continental breakfast, and eating it on the deck overlooking the lake was wonderful--I had just expected something different. Other B and B's at which we have stayed (in this price range) have offered "breakfast experiences" as part of the package. On the other hand, other B and B's at which we have stayed have not had the views this one has. So the view, the beach, and the wonderful house is what we paid for. Breakfast is not why one should come here.
The Presidential suite is quite impressive--it is elegant, luxurious, and fun. The giant whirlpool tub with the oil lamps, complementary sherry, steam-shower, and private deck were all much appreciated. It was a delightful place to camp out for a couple of days. It was pretty light in the morning, however. If you want to sleep in and sunlight in the room bothers you, bring eyeshades. Of course, one of the reasons for this is the skylight above the tub, which is a great thing.
Overall we had a wonderful time there. If you plan to be at the lake, enjoying the sun and sand and water and views, this is a great, if not economical, choice. It is expensive, but for us on our special occasion and our desire to have a wonderful suite with peaceful million-dollar views, it was excellent. And Jackie and Dan are delightful hosts.
