Good location in Eminence. Very clean, comfortable rooms, lots of room inside. Very quiet. Like the chairs on the porch, and the firepit and picnic tables. Convenient to the shopping area across the highway from the cabins.

All in all, the visit was ok. The TV in the small cabins are so small that you cannot see them from either bed and we never could get a decent channel; they were all fuzzy. Definitely need to upgrade the TV's. I also think everyone needs their own fire pit out back instead of having to share with their... More

So leary of staying somewhere on the river but after reading reviews settled on Shady Lane. Stayed in cabin 1. Furnishings are not the newest but very very clean. No stains, no dirt, no dust, no smell. Very nice and great price. Grounds are very tidy and nice also.

We have previously stayed in one of the extra large (two story) cabins with family, which I highly recommend. This time around my husband and I ended up getting one of the hotel rooms, which was perfectly adequate for our needs. We stayed in room 101, the first room to the right when you walk in the door. The room... More

Found Eminence and decided to stop at Shady Lane on a cross country trip not knowing the area at all. I was pleasantly surprised at the amazing natural beauty of the area and loved the little town. Quaint, friendly and authentic and just what I was looking for. Got in late and the owner was very friendly and helpful and... More

I brought a fairly large group to the Shady Lane Motel & Cabins after just under two years of planning for the trip, so it was important that things go well. Jim & Jeanie Anderson, the owners, went way above and beyond the call of duty to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. Information was supplied readily, no issues overlooked,... More

We've been coming to Eminence for about twelve years have stayed at Shady Lane the last ten. At first we went for the economical rooms, but the excellent service and clean rooms kept us coming back. The motel rooms are comfortable. If staying for four or five days, we get a cabin, which is huge. We've also stayed there in... More

My husband and I were first attracted to Shady Land Cabins and Motel by the more than reasonable prices on season and off. We're simple people in search of a clean, quiet room for sleeping, accessible and dependable WIFI, quiet A/C in the summer and heat in the winter -- as well as knowledgeable and friendly helpful local staff...people who...
