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

My kids stayed here and told me they found a great place that was fairly inexpensive. I had to make the same multiday trip, so took their advice. (Note to self - Never trust your kids opinions!!) I paid about $70 dollars, no charge for my pup, and my visit started off very positive . . . till I got... More

I do not believe that you stayed with us. We are closed for the winter since Nov 1. Our small cabins do have small heaters but any that were open during the colder part of the year (May, Sept and Oct) have gas or electric wall heaters. More

Thanks for a memorable stay on our long trip to Yellowstone. I appreciate all the hard work this FAMILY OWNED business does. Hard working people have made America what it is, I believe in supporting people I can see instead of a company I read about in the paper. If you need exercise, run around the parking lot or down...

We have stayed here before, it is a quaint little place, Karen was great. I do like having a separate cabin. It is not fancy but pretty much has what you need, no hairdryer which is not a problem for me. No breakfast which is fine with me, coffee in the office. The only complaint I have is I could... More

I read a review from 'purplemoon4' ... well I can't say more. This is maybe goor for ' construction workers ( no hard feelings, boy's) and for backpackers' but for 2 senior couples, tourists in a great country this is not what we hoped for. After seen 2 of the cabins our decision was unanimous ... let's get further on... More

Didn't want the formula hotels in the strip down the street. This was fair priced, clean and comfortable. Not fancy. Folksy. Good hot shower. Good free coffee. Nice dog. A real place - not a plastic interchange type of place. Won't be for everyone. Not much left to say and trying to reach the review required 200 characters.
