This is a rustic motel, and very charming. The owners have put a lot of work and money into it to make it a wonderful experience: several rooms back up to the river and they have private balconies overlooking it, with a table and chairs.
We had a bedroom, along with a kitchen, complete with a large refrigerator. A partition separated the kitchen from another bed- we used it as a mini-livingroom as it had a nice-sized flat screen tv; the bedroom had one also, and there were plenty of cable channels!
We stayed a few days, but had to leave the motel the night before my birthday because of new guests coming in. We had to leave the larger room the night before we left because of new guests, but the smaller accommodation was darling with a small kitchenette- and its own balcony with a river view as well.
The motel is a work in progress-- working on our own 979 sq ft little house in Thousand Oaks, CA is costing an arm and a couple of legs, so it doesn't take a lot of imagination to guess what putting back together an 80-year-old building next to a river must cost both in labor and money. I don't know about Kevin and Constance
's situation but it can sure take a lot of borrowing to make a place comfortable and homey.
Our little Chihuahua loved it- could tell by the kind of tail-wagging and the lack of barking to which he is usually prone.
Constance introduced us to maybe the best health food store in the universe, as well-Gooseberries! Her daughter's tennis instructor where we could see deer at this time of the year (which we did, every day :o) ).
If I can squeeze enough out of a refi of a reverse mortgage, I sure hope to come back in 2014!
And if we win Publishers Clearing House $7k-a-week-for-life I would sure love to donate enough to Kevin and family to help them fix the place up to their hearts' desire (might even get us the same 2 -room accommodation :o) )!
