COVID-19 Update

To comply with recent Clay County directives to address the COVID-19 pandemic, the Inn on Crescent Lake will close beginning at 11 a.m. March 22 and remain closed through April 15, reopening April 16. Although as of now these directives do not directly apply to lodging establishments, we have chosen to comply out of an overabundance of caution. Please note that this may change as the situation continues to unfold. We will keep you informed through this page as well as on our Facebook pages. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
