Thank you Jason. It has been so great watching your Mom grow up and now the 3 of you. We always miss you when you leave. Since this is our 40th year, I suspect that we were here for your Mom's first year. We loved her Grandparents and Mom. Have fun for the rest of the summer. Carol

Carol and her family were wonderful! Her communication during the booking process was wonderful. Her attention to detail and keeping our group together was awesome. The cabins are rustic, and serve the purpose nicely. The briquette grills outside the cabins are very convenient. Although our refrigerator quit on us, the problem was resolved within 30 minutes! That was amazing!! The...

We stayed in one of the larger motel rooms and were pleasantly surprised by the very comfortable beds. The rest of the room had the basic amenities - tv, a/c, heater, coffeemaker, but it was everything we needed. We loved being able to open the windows for a nice breeze. The water pressure was excellent and the water stayed hot...

We spent a warm Columbus Day weekend here. Although the motel was not full there was no hot water in the shower at 9 a.m. There also is no heat in the bathroom. This means that if you like to keep a light on in the bath room your choice is to (a) keep the door closed so that the...

This was the perfect spot to come do book research for the weekend! If you come with the expectations of enjoying a classic cottage setting this will be perfect for you.

Let me start by saying I was very misled by this property. I was told there was a pool and it would be open in October, what I wasn't told was that it is not heated. Who is going to swim in an outdoor pool in October? I was also told there was a hot tub, but children are in...
