Beautiful place to stay and the Staff are absolutely wonderful~

5 on June 08, 2015

We stayed for 2 nights in the Peregrine Lakeview Cottage and had a delightful time. The view is simply amazing and the cottage is fully equipped with a full kitchen. The staff and the Innkeeper Skip were extremely accommodating and helpful with any of our needs. I highly recommend the Inn for anyone who is looking for a relaxing stay at a very beautiful place!


May visit

3.6 on June 01, 2015

I love this place, would stay there again and would encourage others to do the same, but you'll need to bring food because in late May there was no dining available. Also, the internet wasn't working and the TV was barely working. No one needs TV, but I needed the internet for business. I went to the office four times for help, but no one was ever there. But those things are minor compared to how awesome the location and the accommodations are.


GREAT INN...

3.4 on May 26, 2015

Great room (Gazebo), beautiful location, peaceful and quiet... ROTTEN WEATHER, but for some reason every time I go on vacation it's always rotten weather...would like to sit in the Gazebo some time when the temp is above 45 degrees!!! Restaurant was closed, early in season...


Wonderful Place to Stay

4.8 on May 24, 2015

We stayed off season, yet the facility was endearing, the staff outstanding and cleaner then most private homes. Skip the Innkeeper seemed genuinely interested in us and the next day when we saw him, recalled our conversation and asked about our day. The facility was clean and quiet. The views are spectacular. They have a continental breakfast, but we thought that is would be the usual bagels and toast. We were surprised to find fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs and muffins along with a selection of beverages, cereals and more. I put 4 of 5 on the dining as the restaurant was not open during our stay (mid-week off season) but it was set nicely. We spent time in the library relaxing and on the front porch unwinding. It is a but rural, and there is not much civilization around but if you are looking to get away in a quiet and healthy atmosphere, this is a wonderful place to go. The closest General Store we found was in Evansville about 7-10 minutes away, which in true Americana, was also the Sheriff's office, the jail and gas station. We will stay again as we travel to the Vermont area.


Two Nights at the Willoughvale

Very friendly and courteous staff. Great location. Can not wait to go back.


Romantic getaway couldn't have been better!

5 on May 04, 2015

Lovely lakeside cottages and wonderful staff equates to a great, romantic getaway. Even in the off-season, the Willoughvale was a great place for my wife and I to escape reality for a few days. We did some hiking and leisurely driving, and ate at a few great local places that were recommended by the staff. Just sitting in the cabin playing Monopoly was a blast. It would have been a fun place for a big family vacation as well. Give the Willoughvale a shot; you won't be dissappointed!


Weekend at the Lake

4.2 on April 22, 2015

We stay at the Inn at least twice each year. This time we were in the Robert Frost Cottage. The view from all of the accommodations is gorgeous - but I like being really close to the water. It was amazing to see how much of the ice melted over the weekend. The cottage was immaculate and everything that you need is there. We had four relatives for dinner on Saturday night and were able to prepare and serve a full dinner. I would highly recommend the Willoughvale. I gave a low rating to the dining simply because it is not open at this time.


Amazing view

4.6 on April 22, 2015

We spent night at the Governor's suite which had a fireplace and a jacuzzi. He had a nice view of the lake.


Lovely as always, no chef :(

4.0 on April 13, 2015

We unfortunately picked a time when the inn was transitioning to a new chef and the restaurant was not open. In the past we have had amazing meals and the bar is charming. We were warned by the staff that they were closed well in advance and were given an excellent list on area dining. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. We love the willoughvalle and look forward to returning soon!!


The birches cottage

Great cabin with everything we needed! Wish the restaurant was up and running but it was not available the weekend we stayed. Whole cabin was supper clean! Thanks for the great weekend!
