This was our first stay at Buckeye Tree Lodge and we selected it because it is close to the park entrance, making it easier to visit our daughter who works at the park. Our room was extremely quiet, even though it was right by Highway 198. It was very comfortable and homey, with a deck that opened to the swimming pool. It included a small refrigerator and a microwave. They also furnished fresh coffee beans and a grinder. Mmmm. Delicious coffee right in our room. There wasn't any sugar and creamer, however. Fortunately we always travel with sugar and creamer so it wasn't a problem. I'm sure the motel would have provided it if we had asked. My husband had forgotten his razor and we were able to get one from the motel. The only drawback was that even though they advertised as having internet, we were unable to access it during our stay. Also there isn't a phone in the room, which for us wasn't too much of a concern. There is a phone nearby, in the parking lot, that anyone can use and call anywhere in the U.S.
It was only a short walk across the highway to the river, where we could watch the ducks. A few people were fishing as well. The Buckeye Tree Lodge is a cozy ,motel in a beautiful setting. We will be back!
