Just a quick overnight but had a great king room upstairs which included a kitchen and large bathroom with a huge tub! Was a bit warm in the night but the bed was very comfortable. Owners were very nice, breakfast was all you really need and good coffee! Would stay again for sure if we are back that way.

We were touring the south shore and stayed at one of the two-bedroom cabins at Mackenzie's. The cabin was clean and comfortable for two couples. The breakfast was adequate and got us on our way. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Excellent motel. Very clean and well maintained. Rates were also very fair. We stayed in a little room that had a very cozy "cottage" feel. We felt very safe and very much at-home. They have a nice pool, and continental breakfast was very good. Lots of items to choose from. This place is close to all the local attractions, and... More

The accommodations are cute and clean. We fell in love with our tiny cottage and the surrounding historic town. But.. the one thing that blew my mind was the freshly baked bread they serve every morning with their complimentary breakfast! Tastes just like grandmas! We enjoyed our first night so much decided to stay a second. Our cottage would have... More

Our cottage was right next to a cute babbling brook. We had a nice deck and the bathroom was amazing. The breakfast was yummy and the staff were super nice. My only complaint was that the air conditioning didn't cool the bedrooms and it was hot. Also the kitchen was tiny and could fit only one person at a time.
