    Quiet and clean motel with excellent service and great view. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Despite looking like you are in the middle of nowhere you are actuary minutes from downtown Stratford.

    This was our second time staying here for our anniversary getaway. It's secluded, but not far from town, and very relaxing. The rooms are cozy, and very well maintained. Continental breakfast was great, and lots to choose from. Thanks!
