Thank you, Skip, and staff for going the extra mile!

I had received a complimentary one night's lodging, which my wife and I took to celebrate our thirtieth anniversary. We had a wonderful stay in the beautiful Gazebo Room. A few hours after we checked out, I received a phone call from the woman at the front desk who informed me that I had left my cell phone charger there, but that Skip would be coming to my place of employment - at least forty miles away from the the Willoughvale- the next day to return it to me. Wow! I hadn't even noticed it was missing, and they were already making plans to personally bring it to me. Thank you, Skip and staff, for going the extra mile to look out for me and saving me a trip and having to wait to get that charger back. It bay seem like a little thing, but little things can make a big impact in terms of hospitality. I hope we can visit again.

Pisgah Cabin

The Willoughvale Inn and "Pisgah" Cabin were amazingly beautiful on Lake Willoughby!! We had the most delightful weekend, with a beautiful sunrise and mist coming off the lake between the mountains through our front window. The wood "Gas" stove was outstanding and jacuzzi hit the spot!! Russ & Maura


Great Place

Stayed in Feb. 2017 with my son for a few days snowmobiling. Stayed at the cabin on top of the hill and was very impressed. Clean place that was quiet and private. We also had our own access to VAST trails. Will definitely be staying here again!


Love this place.

Business and pleasure trip that included daily snowmobiling was truly one of the best trips ever. Willoughvale Inn made it complete for us.


Hidden gem

4.8 on January 12, 2017

We picked the Willoughvale Inn primarily as a stopping point to Quebec but quickly realized what a great find it was and made point to stop again on our return.


beautiful lake

3.2 on January 01, 2017

Because of a flat tire we got there later than we hoped, just in time for a beautiful sunset on the lake in winter time but not much time to walk around, although what we saw was beautiful. Accomodations are pretty standard, you'll be comfortable.


Sweet place!

We did not get to enjoy dinner there on this trip, but during our previous trips when we did get to enjoy the evening meals they were always delicious.


Loved the view of the lake, amazing cabin!!!
