Our thanks to the check in person, Kim, who went beyond to make a difference in OUR vacation. The unstated check-out time policy is 8:00 AM, which is very early when you are not on the working clock. Understandable, kind-of, for week long house/cabin rentals, not for short term motel rooms. We were there for one night only and were very sour on the early check out for our quick "getaway" to pick up our son from nearby Camp Lake Owen. Upon our return from dinner, Kim had posted a note that she got approval from mgmt for a later 10:00 AM checkout; this 2 hours made all the difference in our short stay, from disappointment, to "we hope to be back again (if we get the later check out in advance)".
We stayed in one of the motel rooms offered for only one night. Great setting to feel like you've really gotten away, even for the night. The all pine motel room was like a mini condo/hotel suite in one room. The jet tub/shower was great, and while not much sink counter space in the bathroom, there is plenty next to the full wet-bar sink in the main room. There is a back door with a nice semi-private deck with a table and chairs. The surrounding grounds are spacious and there is a dock and small beach area to the lake.
After what Kim did, I would definitely go back to Grand Pines and enjoy a few more days there with a longer stay next time. If the mgmt cannot accommodate you while you are on YOUR vacation, there are many other places in the area. This is a place where the staff made the difference for us.
