We spent a warm Columbus Day weekend here. Although the motel was not full there was no hot water in the shower at 9 a.m. There also is no heat in the bathroom. This means that if you like to keep a light on in the bath room your choice is to (a) keep the door closed so that the... More

This was the perfect spot to come do book research for the weekend! If you come with the expectations of enjoying a classic cottage setting this will be perfect for you. Yes, it is rustic and cozy but with all the amenities. Kitchen, comfy bed, hot shower, sofa, table, AC/Heat, big screen TV with basic channels. Strong WiFi! Plus a... More

Let me start by saying I was very misled by this property. I was told there was a pool and it would be open in October, what I wasn't told was that it is not heated. Who is going to swim in an outdoor pool in October? I was also told there was a hot tub, but children are in... More

We wanted a place that was quite and where we could sit outside. We found it here, we stayed in cottage 3 which is poolside. You have your own driveway to... More

We stumbled upon this (my husband had driven by in the past) and were happy and lucky to get a cottage (#17) for a single night this past weekend. The owner was exceedingly friendly and honest about the accommodations, which are on the rustic side. We have spent many a trip tent camping, and also many a trip at places... More

We just got back two days ago from a wonderful stay at the White Oak motel. We could not have been more pleased. Everything you could need for a cottage stay was at your disposal, including a camp fire at night. We were able to take our dog Chester on the private beach and he loved the water. The owners...

We have stayed here several times in the past 35 years. Sometimes in the motel rooms, other times in the cottages. The area is nice and quiet, the pond is wonderful to swim in and relax by. There are lots of sights to see in the area.
