We came to Gravois Mills for a specific purpose and chose this motel to stay for two days. But it was so pleasant, that we may come here again just for the pleasure of being here. The room was nice and spacious, and we could walk right out to the lake.

Water's Edge is the best resort we've visited in a very long time. Small hotel type setting, extremely clean, neat, tidy, and very well tended. Staff was so friendly and attentive to even minor requests for help. We were attending a family reunion nearby at my brothers lake cabin nearby , and family members rented most of the rooms in...

Great little motel! Layout is neat and organized, with chairs, picnic tables, and grills out back on the shore, and nice landscaping. Rooms are clean and comfortable, and customer service is excellent. Very affordable, and the owners were polite and helpful. We would absolutely stay here again!

Our family enjoyed our stay!! From the time I spoke with Robin making a reservation, I knew this was where we HAD to stay! She's amazing. The room was immaculate. The facilities are top notch. The view of the sunrise on the lake was just fantastic. Great way to start your day. We couldn't have asked for friendlier service and... More

Our Family rented this entire motel for a 3 day weekend. Very clean and comfortable. The back yard is a little slice of heaven, spacious and great place for the kids to play. We had horse shoe pits, batmitten nets, sprinklers, and the boat dock to fish off of and bring in the jet skies and pontoon for pickup. We... More

So quiet and peaceful. Enjoyed, lay back kick your shoes off. Room was very clean, owner was welcoming, took time to stop by and visit while we were sitting out. Will be going back this year. Wish I lived there.

We were so happy to find this little gem! It's right on the water and in a quiet area. There are picnic tables and chairs right outside the rooms on the perfectly manicured lawn, just the place to relax and enjoy the lake. Our room was cute, comfortable and spotless!

"RELAX" is the word for each day here at the "Waters Edge Motel." Enjoying the lake front yard and the great views of the lake will always make for a wonderful day - next time you stay with us, put a few hot dogs or hamburgers on the grill - make it a great picnic. More

We were pressed to find a hotel on the "quiet" side of the lake to be near family. Robin was so accommodating in giving us a wonderful room with a view.
