Nice Inn, missed the oatmeal
We've stayed at the Friends Lake Inn before we because we enjoy the quality of the rooms, the friendliness of the staff, and the deliciousness of the breakfast offerings. In our most recent visit, the breakfast menu lacked oatmeal. To be honest, it might sound funny, but the lack of the oatmeal made this experience less fun than the other time we came.

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.

All it's cracked up to be
We arrived at 7:30pm and their dining room was closed that evening. Since it's quite remote we were worried about finding a place to eat. Becky at the front desk was very prepared and provided a list of places to eat within 5 minutes that she had already confirmed were open and that she recommended. We enjoyed a fantastic local meal.
