We were stranded by a closed highway and fell upon this little motel by accident. The staff was friendly, the price was $40 and the rooms were neat and clean. We were going to buy a knife from the attached carry-out store to cut up some cheeze. No need...the owner loaned us one and said just leave it in the... More

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights for a family reunion. Cabins had two bedrooms, a small kitchen and bathroom with shower. Beautiful grounds with a centrally located picnic area and horseshoe pit in back. A short walk down a beautiful path leads to a creek bank with a park bench and fire pit. Rates were very reasonable... More

My husband & I stayed in one of the cabins. The cabins are pet-friendly which really helped us out seeing we had our dog with us. Very reasonably priced. Staff was friendly & room was clean. Would definately return.
