By the way, the Wife was worried that the little ones would be able to get to the beach and the lake without supervision. Not a problem. There’s a fence and a guard between the two.
By the way, I think that’s the other thing I liked about the hotel.
Religiously, everyone was covered (I mean spiritually), if you want a mixed beach there’s one next door, you want separate, they have that too.
There was a fast minyan, a slow minyan, a Sephardi minyan, and the minyan you won’t go to. All the options were there, and you could pick what you were most comfortable with, and no one was uncomfortable with anyone else.
The hotel offered entertainment every night, including the singing of Tzemed Re’im, Yosef Chaim Shwekey (the brother), as well as Shiurim and speakers every day.
Also, no electronic card keys and automatic sliding doors. The hotel is designed for Shomer Shabbos people. There’s a Shabbos clock in the room. All that stuff is not an afterthought, as it is in so many other hotels.
As for location, besides being right on the lake, it’s a great jumping off point for trips up to the Golan. Just drive across the highway, and start climbing up. There’s also far less traffic on this side of the Kinneret than the Tiberias side.
We had a great time. The Kinar is a great hotel for a family trip up north.
