We chose this motel as it was close to Lowell Lake State Park and Bromley, where we had some summer adventures planned. The owner was friendly, personable, and obviously takes pride in his establishment, as well as the lovely traditional and hydroponic gardens he and his wife are cultivating on the property. We appreciated the fridge and microwave in room, and the non-sugary cold cereals available for breakfast. Little did we realize that after a theft of some of our property from the lake, the owner's kindness would be so helpful, as he let us overstay checkout time (and even offered us a free night we did not end up needing) to deal with the issue, and his friend who is visiting even lent us a car as our keys were taken. Our family was so grateful for the hospitality. You can choose to interact or not with the owner, as he respects your privacy, but please know that he is a very generous human being and interested in guests enjoying their stays and being well taken care of. We would stay here again if in the area.
