We've stayed here a couple different times and will continue to do so. The owners are extremely friendly and pleasant. The place is so neat and clean, the continental breakfast is delicious and the owners are always willing to give you suggestions of places to eat and see and all their suggestions have been spot on. Can't wait to go... More

The room was very clean and the staff was very accommodating. They gave us directions and recommendations based on our needs. The kids had a great time in the pool. We had a great time seeing all that silver lake area had to offer!

The playground and fire pit area were great for our kids, we even felt comfortable enough letting our 7 and 10 year old run around by themselves while we... More

Stayed for two nights. Staff (owner) was very helpful recommending restaurants, etc. Rooms and complex were very clean and kept up. Continental breakfast included coffee, water, tea, breads, cheese, and cinnamon rolls.
