My wife and I both needed some private time in an area that was easily accessible, on the waters edge with a beautiful open view of the lake, easy travel to shopping and eating and not have to get in and out of the gravel roads that are the norm for water access cabins, clean, friendly hosts with Robin and...

I took 4 kids for the weekend, we never had to leave. The kids had so much fun! Beautiful view from the CLEAN spacious rooms. Quiet, calm part of the lake away from all the traffic and touristy stuff. It is like a hidden treasure. Very well maintained. Only thing we didn't like was the air conditioner was pretty loud.

We recently had a large family reunion in Gravois Mills and the motel owners worked closely with us to arrange lodging for many of our out-of-town relatives. We used their lakefront grounds to have an evening picnic supper, bonfire and sing-along.

We've been staying here for years. The rooms are basic but very clean. Fridges,microwaves,coffee pots ,direct tv. Who needs super fancy when your time is spent out on the water anyway? Save some money on the very reasonable rates and do some shopping across at the outlet mall. Everything you need! The grounds are impeccable. All kinds of outdoor activities... More

We stay here every year when we are in the area visiting family. Great place for families: rooms are pretty basic and super clean. Most rooms have lovely lake views and there is a great area lakeside by the docks for sitting and visiting. Wonderful staff. Can't wait to return next year.

Great price for a quick getaway at the lake. Clean rooms, boat dock and out door activities. We have stayed here before and would definitely stay again. They have DirecTV. It is also on the quiet side of the lake.

For the past several years we've been coming to Gravois Mills for a weeklong extended family gathering. Every year I say I'm going to write a rave review ... and this is the first year I'm actually doing it :-) Days are spent at the "family cottage on the lake" and nights are spent at Waters Edge.
