Rented a cabin --- A/C was not working properly, due to filter being clogged with lots of dust -- which we cleaned ourselves. dead spiders in bathroom on the wall. Could not open one of the windows, because of the broken screen.

Last minute decision to stay here due to a funeral we needed to attend. Extremely clean cottage and a great price. Check out time extended (at no additional cost) due to our schedule. Very accommodating and great location to restaurants and shopping. Thank you for a great stay! We highly recommend staying here.

I don't know why this motel is listed as an Inn or B&B. It is an old fashioned motel. The rooms are small and dark and the bathroom is tiny with nowhere to set anything down. There are no lamps or tvs in the bedrooms and with no windows they are a bit cave like. There are holes and nails... More

Didn't realize at the time of booking that it was Columbus Day weekend until so many lodgings required a minimum stay of 2 or more nights. Whereas there were 4 of us I booked a 2 bedroom cottage so we... More

Everything in our room was brand new. The beds were comfortable. The shower head was a little low, so if you are tall, just be warned. The front desk staff were extremely helpful. It is also in a great location. All around, we were very pleased with our stay.
