The Private beach

The hot tub was barely warm but it was still a nice added bonus to our stay since the lake was quite cold.

Access to the lake was great. Grass area accessibility for our dog was very convenient. Although we did not need a grocery store, Safeway was right across the street.
Other Comments
Housekeeping needed to be asked to make up the room. Also, on our last day, housekeeping parked their cart right outside our door making it difficult to navigate around it. But, those minor inconveniences will not stop us from returning. Room was small but adequate. Great facility!!

The location on the lake cannot be beat. It was gorgeous, especially with the fresh snowfall.
Other Comments
The Beach Retreat and Lodge provides a complimentary shuttle to places around the area (within reason, I'm sure) which was VERY helpful. Peggie was the shuttle driver we had the fortunate occasion to meet and she was great. It's not ideal of you're in a rush, but it's a great service that we definitely availed of.

The view of the lake was nice. The bed was comfortable. The fireplace was warm.
Other Comments
The Sports Bar was not good. Service was ok but the food was boring, bland, and not worth the money. If I didn't have a $30 credit, I would have seriously complained. A cold sandwich with a few pieces of pepperoni and a fatty piece of ham should not cost $14.

We loved the view!!!
Other Comments
When we checked in we were given a room with a broken fireplace that was very small. The bathroom and room were also horribly outdated. Staff tried to fix fireplace which resulted in a gas smell that made my husband and I both sick. We ended up changing rooms for the second night to a much better upgraded room. At check out, they overcharged us and we had to go back to disputed charges. Ugh.

Close proximity to the lake
Other Comments
I specifically requested to not be placed in a 1st floor room, and even called to make sure it would not happen, but when we arrived they had switched us to the first floor. Not super pleased with that, but the room was nice and we had a bit of a view of the mountains and lake.
