The Weathervane Inn is a cozy spot for a relaxing getaway. The fireplace in the room added to the comfort. Easy walk to restaurants and quaint shops. Continental breakfast is more than adequate. Very quiet in the winter.

I absolutely love this place, even in the winter. We, as a family of 4 always get room 215. It is the largest room with a full kitchen and Jacuzzi over looking White Lake. It's a short walk to main street in Montague, and still a nice walk to Whitehall. The world's largest Weather Vane is just across the street...

We have stayed here several times. Always find it clean with a great bed and the hot tub and fireplace are such a relaxing touch. Love the view over the lake from the balcony. We'll be back if my husband has his way. I love the Rivers Edge store next door. Always some unique clothing.

We had a corner hot tub room which was very nice. Big stone gas fireplace and large hot tub. Bed was comfy, hotel was very clean and the staff were very friendly and accomendating. Sat on balcony, overlooking the lake and watched the sunset!

Perfect romantic getaway! We had the corner room on the 2nd floor (small fee to upgrade to that room - worth it!) and the view was outstanding. The fireplace, hot tub, and decor was wonderful. We didn't want to leave and we plan to return.

We have been to this place twice before and enjoyed it so when we came across a Groupon, we decided to give it another try. To our pleasant surprise, it appeared that the rooms have been updated (at least ours was) since our last visit. The gas fireplace is a nice touch along with a large hot tub in the...

Front desk and maintenance staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was very cozy. The bathroom was clean and towels very thick. The bed was extremely comfortable. The refrigerator and microwave worked fine. The best part is the deck off from the room. Lakeview faces a marina but it is still a nice view. There are two deck...

Hi Darcy, we would love to have you come stay with us in the summer, there is a lot going on in both towns. The decks are one of our favorite spots as well.

It was very clean, and I loved the smell of the sheets. It was a surprise for my husband for our anniversary . The third Swan was also a great sunset cruise , we thanked them for keeping their boat in the water, Saturday was great for a ride. And it just topped off the weekend.

The Inn is on the end of White Lake and also, right next to the Hart-Montague Trail, so it was perfect for us. We rode our bikes to New Era on the trail the 1st day. The 2nd day of our visit we explored the Whitehall and Montague area on paved bike paths. The inn was comfortable, clean; staff were...

The Weathervane was so close to being perfect. We booked this for a fall getaway with our kids and ended up having a great weekend. My first thought was being surprised that it was sitting right off a main road, which didn't match my internet impression and what I imagined. Nevertheless, it is a super cute setup that is done...
