Customer Testimonials

Like a second home

We take one trip a year to this area. This motel is in an excellent location, within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. The property is located on the edge of the lake, offering a beautiful view. The heated pool and outdoor grill area make for an excellent place to wind down at the end of the day. The rooms are modern, well-kept and the service is exceptional. This is a great place for families and couples, or the occasional pass-thru visitor.
