Very good 8.0
Moms weekend
Great location comfortable beds. I gave 4 vs 5 because the room decor is tired. My overall stay was great.
Cathy, us2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Fine stay if you get a good price.
Beds were not sturdy. Room type i paid for was not ready at check-in time. Told i could pay $40 more for a style that was available or wait an hour. The better move would have been to give me the upgrade because the room wasn't ready when it was supposed to be.
John, us1 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
What a great way to celebrate my retirement!
We loved the Edgewater! We had a lake view king. It was spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom was huge! I loved that the bathroom had its own heat control as I like it cool when I’m sleeping but warm in the bathroom when I get up. I was not impressed with the food in The Boathouse, but Augies was great. The cheese curds are amazing and you get a huge portion! Navigating the two buildings took a bit of studying, but we figured it out. Staff is very friendly and willing to help. We never used any of the spa facilities but they looked nice. I wish there was a way to opt out of the spa charge if you’re not going to use anything. We loved staying here and will again. It’s very affordable in the winter!
