My wife and I stayed here for two nights in mid-July after bringing our son up to summer camp. This roadside motor inn is situated on a lake and offers clean, spacious rooms with comfortable beds that provide good support. The bathroom was clean, but the the sink drained very slowly. The shower strength was good, but not spectacular. The room door locks are very old style: the interior knob twists in order to lock the door. The lighting in the room was low, even for hotel standards. In this era of low wattage fluorescents providing luminescence that equals 100-watt incandescent bulbs, it should not be such an economic challenge to provide better lighting. My wife was surprised to find that there was no hair dryer in the bathroom. The lobby was not air conditioned, and we had to run a gauntlet of smokers sitting in the covered area in front of the main entrance. Enforcing a no-smoking policy in this area would be helpful. The owners are friendly and can often be found running the front desk. A small refrigerator in the room kept perishables from spoiling, but the freezer was unable to prevent ice cream from melting. The hotel provides a continental breakfast, which was skimpy. There was no cereal and they were out of milk because the delivery person did not come. The owner went out to buy some, but that could be problematic for people on a schedule. Overall, the ambience of the lodge had a dated feel. Depending upon one's perspective, this could be seen as "quaint" or "cheesy." Because my wife and I have a special diet, the presence of a microwave in the room (there was one in the lobby area) would have been nice, but we knew going in that this was not available in the rooms and so, it does not enter into our rating, here
