As you walk in you smell cedar as if you were going in to a sauna. Nice. Helpful desk clerk. Wonderful room with comfortable beds. My lads were highly impressed. The pool/water park was great fun and my boys had a lot of fun. The desk clerk recommended a nearby restaurant when I asked about where we could get a... More

This little gem of a find blew my mind. We usually stay at Grand View Lodge (another nice property) when in the area, but decided to give this place a try. I wasn't sure how good of a place it would be for the price, but our stay was so wonderful it dethroned the awesome GVL as our favorite vacation... More

Stayed here on business on our sponsor's dime. Great bed, quiet rooms, quality breakfast, friendly staff. Rustic motif is consistent with woodsy theme of area fishing and recreation. VERY satisfactory!

Thank you! We're very proud of the Up North feel of our property and very happy you enjoyed it. The beds are all new Serta Perfect Sleepers with pillow tops and the guest comments have been like yours, fantastic.

Sharon, I was overjoyed and proud to read your comments when I got back from vacation this morning.

This is probably one of the cutest hotels I've stayed in recently. When you walk in, you notice how open it feels and it really does look like a rustic lodge.

Stayed in the 1st weekend of March, 2016. Awesome property, great rooms and a great little water-park. The breakfast is above average and there are plenty of great places to eat close by. The area is great for shopping as well (the original Fleet Farm store is across the street). Rooms are a good value, spacious and clean. I can't... More

Our family went up for a night to enjoy the waterpark. The hotel has a cute up north theme. Our room was clean though some of the furniture seemed a little worn. The waterpark was fun with plenty of options for our 4 and 7 year olds. The chlorine level was high--understandable in pools frequented by lots of small people--but... More
