We checked in late because unfortunately we had a flat tire. However, as soon as we got here the staff was extremely understanding and accommodating. They offered us a menu and we placed our dinner order while we unwind and settled into our room. Our room was amazing!! Dinner and cocktails were also amazing.

Actually not on Friends Lake. Cannot even see Friends Lske from the property. Nonetheless a beautiful historic setting. We were the ONLY residents in a large facility. Yet, they still served us a delicious breakfast.
