“Pleasant Surprise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Recently stayed here as we were desperate for a place that would be convenient to our reunion. What looked like a swamp in the backyard turned out to be a haven for nature and provided a show right outside the door.

The room was small but very clean. It had the basic necessities plus a small refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was tiny but it had a clean, hot shower and that's all we needed.

Coffee was available nearby at the Casey's convenience store. There is also a restaurant/bar next door to the motel.

The owners live in the motel and this guarantees no noisy disturbances from other guests. They provide a fire pit and firewood for the guests. There are lots of chairs and a swing to sit on. There is a small dock to walk out of try fishing and we saw lots of fish jumping up. There is also a big sand box area for kids to play with lots of sand related toys.

I am happy that we gave this place a try and look forward to planning another trip to the area for fall colors.

Room Tip: The motel has a variety of accommodations from a two bedroom apartment with a huge deck and lakeview...
