Willoughvale Inn - Lake Willoughby

4.0 on August 29, 2018

Great location on a beautiful lake! We took advantage of the kayaks that were available to us. Staffing issues late in August kept the bar and dinner from being available, but they had a great continental breakfast. We will be back!

Awesome place to stay

4.4 on August 29, 2018

We had an outstanding stay at the Willoughvale Inn. The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly. The views were amazing. They have a dock on the lake with all sorts of amenities including kayaks, a floating trampoline and a fire pit. Only difficult thing was there is no onsite dining, so we had to travel about 30-40 minutes to find food at night. There was a breakfast every morning with juice, coffee, muffins, fruit, cereal, which was nice.

Great stay with very friendly staff. Very clean . Food there was good. We could have made a meal out of the Poutine appetizer and some beer. That was exceptional.

Lovely Place

4.2 on August 25, 2018

We loved our stay. The rooms have a spectacular view (especially the Gazebo Room!) and the inn is very nice with a good breakfast. All the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The lake is fantastic---clean and clear. I would recommend buying beach shoes as it is rocky if you want to swim. Great kayaking. Only two complaints: the internet is slow and the menu at the restaurant at night is limited.

By far the cleanest place I have ever stayed. Linens better than any first class hotel I have stayed in.

We loved our stay at the inn. The view from our room, the lake and the friendly and helpful staff were a pleasure. Nice kayaks. Good continental breakfast too. Two things could use improvements: slow internet and average dinner menu.

Nice Inn with Friendly, Helpful Staff
