Pros: Historic and an excellent, premium breakfast was included. Room was charming and quite spacious with a clean, nice bathroom. The central air poured out of large ceiling vents with no in-room controls all night long. It was like a bad Lake Superior wind. All that continous AC seemed unnecessary and loud - especially with the Inn right on a Great Lake! I felt like I was in the middle of the Gordon Lightfoot song about the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald. It was freezing in that room at night!
Cons: Th excessive AC in the rooms. The flowers and gardens were exceptionally beautiful.

Pros: We were surprised in a fantastic way that we actually stayed at The Chateau and we were honored to stay in the Tower Room. The view was gorgeous. We sat and had our coffee while observing Madeline Island and a Tall Ship in that harbor.
Cons:

Pros: The bed was very comfortable
Cons: We thought we had booked a room at the rittienhouse but instead we were at another property with no restaurant, so we had to drive over for our breakfast.

Pros: 2 course excellent breakfast with choices. We also ate dinner in the Rittenhouse dining room and the food was superb, but reasonably priced. Better than some expensive big city restaurants.
