We only stayed one night on a long road trip but found this spot to be very clean and comfortable. Enough space for all our stuff and bed comfy too. The owners were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again

As my wife said as we pulled in the parking lot (and small too!). Very quaint old-school motel with very nice owners. Rooms were small but fully equiped. Went out for dinner and muffins for breakfast mysteriously appeared while we were gone. Large grassy dog walk area right outside the door and all the apples you can eat.

My daughter and I stayed for 6 nights at this motel while in Castlegar visiting family. Frank met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the property. He invited us to help ourselves to the apples on the apple tree. The room was very comfortable and we were pleased to see that my daughter and I each had... More

We arrived on a beautiful sunny afternoon and were met by the owners. After checking in, Debra showed us around the property and told us to help ourselves to the many apples on the trees in their orchard, and told us to help ourselves (which we did) !!! THANK YOU !!

The owners are fantastic, accommodating, friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms are well laid out, perfectly clean and comfortable - and surprisingly quiet even when the motel is full. Our room had a separate living area and bedroom so I could go to bed early and not be disturbed while my husband watched tv. Great value, and we had yummy... More

The owners were so welcoming, and they remembered me from my previous visit, even greeting me by name. It felt like coming home. Frank helped me carry in my many, many bags, and Debra came out to say hello and see how my journeys had been so far. As I was travelling alone this time, they took the time to... More

The owners make the motel. Very clean and well equipped. There is also a quilt shop which my wife enjoyed. Frank was informative and helpful and the free breakfast muffins were an added touch. Frank suggested Dawns early rising sunshine cafe which proved to be a unique experience.

Thanks for the review. I thought we all had a great time. The rest of your group was so extremely complimentary - "I" and "A" told Debra: "This place is perfect", "Thanks so much", "Slept so well", "Didn't hear a sound", "Couldn't be happier" ........ Frank and Debra More

Stayed while traveling from Salmon Arm, BC to Bonners Ferry, ID. We were welcomed by the owners who took good care of us during our stay. The grounds were nicely kept and there was a nice gazebo to relax in. The units are a little older, but the owners have taken good care of the place. The unit we stayed... More

I've been telling people about this motel since I left it a few days ago - just amazing.

The service was above and beyond - Frank actually picked us up and dropped us off at the auto shop. Frank and his wife Debra (who made the quilts on the beds!) could not have been nicer. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the water pressure was good, and the location was convenient. All in all, a pleasant... More
