Our room was very clean- a pizza box was left from the previous visitors, but that did not bother us. We loved the location and plan to stay here again. Parking was limited. A guest had taken up two parking spots which was inconsiderate, but we worked around it & parked out by the road. We really enjoyed our stay here and plan to be back. Thank you so much!

This is a classic roadside motel with some modern dressings. It is on the water, and has a pool, which may have been nice for a summer visit, but did not add value in the winter. The stay was satisfactory, but lacked any 'wow' factor.

Property is minimal contact which is OK. Minimal means no contact. Room was adequate and clean for our 2 night stay. Bed was comfy and bath was clean. Shower was good and drained well! Being December we did not take advantage of the outdoor pool and kayaks that are available free of charge. Close to town and convenient. Was perfect for weekend getaway.

The hotel was centrally located and on the lake. We enjoyed the amenities - canoed in the afternoon and ended the nights by fire pit. The bed was comfortable and the blackout curtains was a plus! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

This property had lots of cute features and updates (lovely furnishings and decorating), however, the carpet in our room was filthy. Located on Route 86, it was pretty noisy when traffic was moving, and the sound-proofing in general was a problem, so maybe heavier insulation or windows?
