I am always impressed with the peace and quiet, even within the suite itself, I can not hear the person next door, or even the person in the bathroom. I love the trails and the trees, the fire beside the lake and the friendly staff.

Work was being done on the main building so they upgraded our room to a separate cabin at no extra charge. Owners were friendly and accommodating. Cabin had all the amenities with a wonderful view. We will be back.

"We have enjoyed our accommodation in both the Motel section and the B&B. Both have been equally clean and comfortable."
"Envelope provided..A nice touch. We left 10$"
"I believe the King beds are a little harder, we had the doubles...which were a little softer. We slept well. "
"Lower number room like 10 is closer to breakfast nook which may be noisy in the morning."
"Don;t change a thing!"
