We stayed two nights in the Riverside Inn, the room was simple but very clean. The owner, Dan, was very friendly and helpful throughout the duration of our trip. We really enjoyed the campfire at night, and my husband had a really good time swimming in the river behind the motel. We recommend this location to those who love nature, and we are hope to visit this beautiful place again in the future. Erika and Krisztian Koszegi

Stayed in the cedar cabin. It was the best we could have hoped or asked for! Plenty of room in the cabin for the 4 of us, close to Algonquin which is what we wanted and had very friendly staff! We will definitely be returning!

Great motel in the wilderness. Very comfortable rooms, and the grounds are very nice as well. Spent most of time in local parks but the time we did spend in the motel we enjoyed!
