We stayed 1 night while attending swap meet close by. It was a great find, clean and spacious room. Comfortable bed. Beautiful setting on the water. Bathroom a little outdated, but clean and functional.

Hi all! I can not rave enough about the Waters Edge Motel! Nice little spot on the lake for your family. We didn’t get to play in the water due to rain and races...but it was comfortable, quiet, and clean. The view was amazing! The hotel was full when we stayed, we didn’t hear any other guest. We watched a family grill, fish and swim off the dock. We were asked everyday if we needed fresh towels too! There is a dollar general right across The street for easy shopping. I will definitely stay here again when we have time to relax!

We had a family reunion here with a spacious yard leading up to a dock and the kids had plenty of room to run and play yard games. The family rented the entire place and it was like home. This part of the lake is very quiet. The rooms are very clean and comfortable.The owner goes out of her way to make your visit great.
