My wife and I spent the full month of July 2012 in one of their family cabins, a two bedroom, 4 bed unit complete with kitchen, livingroom and all appliances. We found the new owners friendly and quite competant, and believe us, the place had been completely renovated and included all the necessary cooking and dining supplies anyone would want,... More

As we pulled up immediately a bell went off in my head, but we were desparate. As... More

I would be cautious in making reservations at the motor lodge. The amenities are very misleading and the cleanliness of the "cottages" is horrible. I could not stand the stench in the home. Also the supposed shuffleboard, playground and the pool are a joke. I would recommend that if your children go to the playground, please be sure that they... More
