Have been here a couple times before. Very nice rustic individual cabins. Family owned. Jim and Karin very friendly and helpful, just like family. Office is open from 7am to 9pm but there is a phone number if you have to reach Jim after hours. Coffee and muffins in office during open hours No breakfast but had a lounge are... More

We were driving from Oregon to Michigan and found ourselves in Buffalo at the time for dinner and bed... there is one strip with all of the chains (econo this and budget that and holiday something else) but we'd had enough of those. We found this place down at the next stop light. It was cheap enough, cozy and comfortable... More

Nice and quiet. The fire pit was nice to sit around. The bed was comfortable. The owner was very nice. The coffee shop is nice also. The shops not supposed to open until 7a.m but my husband went over about 6:45 and they had coffee already made and they made me a chi tea that was really good.

I have stayed at the Blue Gables Motel twice in the last 3 years. The motel is made up of a number of rustic cabins made with pine logs. The two units I have stayed in have been very comfortable with 2 bedrooms each. This motel reminds a person of what it was like to travel back in the early... More

A cute and cozy motel...we had a cabin all to ourselves. Not huge, but adequate. Very rustic appeal, log cabin and knotty pine interior, microwave, fridge, small TV. Small bathroom with shower stall. Very clean! Nice homey quilt on bed....not the most comfortable bed but okay. Grounds are lovely. Very clean premises, flowers galore. Nice, heated pool. BBQ area and... More

The cabins are small and, yes, need some updating but we had everything we needed. Close proximity to town. There was a fire in the fire pit one night and we sat out and talked with other travelers. Pool was clean and fairly warm. The landscaping was out of this world! Good coffee shop onsite. No breakfast but coffee and... More

The motel just did not live up to the hype. The folks that run it are really nice and interesting but the cabins were a bit disappointing. The beds were not that great, the pillows flat, but it was clean. One cabin had a shower floor that felt spongy and the other cabin was definitely short on electrical outlets. For... More

Nice folks that run this place. Biker friendly. You can have a horse and buggy ride from downtown after dinner if you've had too much to eat or drink. The cabins are a bit dated but clean. You can pull your motorcycle right up to your front door.

My husband and I took our teen aged granddaughter on a 2 week trip from WI to CA and back. Along the way we always chose smaller mom and pop type motels because they most reminded my husband of his traveling days in the 60s. Then on the way home we accidentally came across this motel with log cabins -... More

The cabin -- really cute and very clean. It had a rustic feel, while still being very comfortable. We stayed in a two-bed cabin and the beds were actually in two separate rooms, which was a nice and unexpected feature. The room also has a refrigerator and microwave, as well as a TV. There is free wi-fi, which worked fine... More
