The Lazy J was a perfect combination of comfortable and unique. The ranch component consisted of three goats and two sheep in fenced paddocks...fun for the kids to have animals! The rooms are basically duplex cabin with a fridge and microwave, comfortable chairs for reading,etc. The rooms were spotless. My only minor complaint was that they used too much air freshener when they cleaned daily. The property was well maintained with a swing set for the kids, lots of grass to run around on and a well maintained small pool, perfect after a day of hiking.
The river accessed by walking behind the motel (better poolsforswimming) or driving to the recreation area about 1/4 mile down the road is spectacular filled with huge boulders, surrounded by the hills. Breakfasts were pretty basic, but there were lots of choices, including fresh fruit and granola bars. Why stay at a chain motel when you can stay with friendly local folks at the Lazy J.
