Nice inside pool. Lots to do at this property. Inn across the street was not as nice as their main building. Gameroom was closed. Little disappointed as this was one of the reasons we booked it so our kids had a place to go.

Location, location. Sometimes you need more.

Pros: Centrally located. Easy to find.
Cons: The food and the room conditions.
Location: Close to Weir's Beach, skiing, swimming. The private beach was nice, even though the water was not deep. Canoe/waterboard rentals on site.
We stayed during "peak" season and paid premium rates to be across the street from the water, with no view of the water at all. Our room overlooked the loading dock for the Shaw's Market, with deliveries being made all night long. Used to having a microwave in the room, not so in this place. Room service was poor, even though the facility was clean. The bathroom door didn't close properly. Our last night staying there, at 4:30 we found the room service manager to exchange our towels, get coffee supplies for the morning and told them not to bother making up the room at that point. Stayed there for 3 nights and each day was an adventure to see what we would have to make due with - no coffee stirrers, 3 bath mats and 1 towel..... The resort was centrally located and easy to find. Most places of interest were within 20 minutes or so. The beachside restaurant/bar was also nicely located, very small and had a very limited menu. Would be worth every penny if you were spending $80 to $90 a night. Not worth much more than that.

OK rooms. Disgusting pool.

Pros: the convenience (area).
Cons: It needs to be updated. The pool needs a thorough cleaning. More detail in room cleaning (currently not horrible but not great).
I purchased the room in order to bring my younger family members swimming. The room was OK. It had a 3 star clean. The 12 year old kids would not swim in the pool because they were grossed out. It was "murky" and had hair and paper visibly floating through out it. We purchased the hot breakfast and it was cold. There meat was not properly heated. They refunded our breakfast purchase when I told them but only apologized about the pool. I won't be back. For about 10 bucks more you can get a decent room/pool in Tilton. Definitely worth it.

nice getaway

Stayed two nights off season. Front desk staff was very friendly. Rooms were a little old but spacious and acceptable. The property was very clean and so was the lake. Pool area was very nice as was the free daily breakfast. Will go back for sure
