I went on the advice of the other reviews and was not disappointed. The owners have done a great job fixing up a 50 year or so motel. Every room has a different decor - very whimsical. And, it is a short walk to the lake. Since there is no breakfast room, the breakfast was the only small problem. The Alder Inn has done a great job to overcome this and the other 5 in our group were very happy with the selection.
