When my extended family and I arrived we were told we owed quite a bit more than we expected, considering we paid the first and last night of our four night stay months ago as the deposit, we were surprised to owe more than half. We had indicated we had 11 people (half kids) coming when we made the reservation... More

For many years we have enjoyed spending a few early spring days in the Eminence, Missouri area exploring the many big SPRINGS and always stay at the Shady Lane where you are considered family by the Andersons and staff members. Good clean, comfortable, safe lodging at very reasonable prices. Checkout Alley Spring & Mill, Blue Spring, Welch Spring, Greer Spring,... More

The room was clean. There was some stains on the carpet. It could use some updating. The air conditioner didn't work very good. The room was very spacious. The beds were pretty comfortable. The area was very quiet. It was location was excellent. We would stay here again.

This was a great clean little motel. The price was way less then what I expected for this place. it was close to the river and all the little stores. We used the Windy's rafting service while we were there, they were very friendly and helpful also. This is a great place to spend the weekend.

Our family, which includes 4 teen-agers, stayed at Shady Lane and loved our time in Eminence. We stayed in Cabin 10 and utilized both the top and bottom of the cabin. It was very clean and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked and we also had a fire pit and grill. We did not have a view of the river... More

My wife and I rented a cabin for two nights this May so we could raft on the nearby river. This property is kept VERY clean and run by some very hardworking people. Every question that we asked was answered with very good information and a lot of thought. They gave us rafting tips ( Harvey's trips ) and even... More

24 members of our family just stayed here for a weekend family reunion...it was wonderful! If you have a large family, consider renting the "Manor", which is what my immediate family and I did...it was GREAT for hosting the rest of the group. We had family members also staying in cabins and the motel. Everyone commented on how clean it... More

The cabins are better than the motel. Rooms are clean. Double rooms are pretty big. Single rooms, not so much. Good things: free wi-fi, cabins have mini-fridge and bbq. Bad things: motel rooms are right on top of one another. Heaven help you if nearby guests are loud coming and going. Part of the river is nearby, but you have... More

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay in the Ozarks, a place that would be easily accessible (important for my husband), clean and quiet. We found just that in the small town of Eminence at Shady Lane. We had a cabin with 2 queen size beds, our own porch to sit on and enjoy the beautiful... More
