Lakeside Inn Room Types, Amenities & Policies

The 90 guest rooms and suites of Lakeside Inn are located in four distinct and historic buildings, which are named Lakeside, Gables, Terrace and the Sunset Cottage. The Inn’s fifth building, the Gatehouse, features a ground-floor gift shop, named The GateHouse Gift Gallery and a second floor function space named the Donnelly Room.

Of the four buildings that feature guest rooms and suites, only the Sunset Cottage is three-storied; the remaining buildings have accommodations on either a first or second floor. Elevators have never been part of the Inn’s history, so steps and stairs are evident in each building.

New decors are bright and cheery, yet quite traditional. All paint colors used throughout the Inn’s interiors and exteriors are registered by the National Historical Trust for Preservation.

For anyone that has not stayed in a true, original and historic, wooden-structured hotel, you are in for a treat. In spots, the floors will indeed creak. The guest room entry doors have glass knobs and are opened with real keys… and upon entering you won’t find the usual clutter of corporate marketing materials spread throughout the room. There are large walk-in closets and reminders everywhere that these buildings and rooms were constructed in a very different era of travel. An overnight stay at Lakeside Inn will be a very new experience for some guests, but a fond and pleasant reminder to many others.
