This place is not your average motel. It's clean and comfortable and well-equiped. Though we were there a day early because of a miscommunication, and the room we reserved for the next night wasn't available that first night, they were easily able to take care of us that night in a different room. So we were able to experience two...

This was one of nicest rooms we stayed in over a 2-week trip through parts of Canada and a few States. The staff was friendly, and the bait shop had a small beer/liquor/cooler selection and smoked fish which were great. They also recommended a nice place to us for breaky the next morning which was just down the road. I...

We stayed overnight at the River Rock Inn & Bait Shop. The room was comfortable, attractive, and certainly one of the cleanest I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy. The north woods fishing theme even extended to the room key-attached to a "spoon" fishing lure. We will certainly stay there again. We meet the owner at the bait shop...

What a great find for a group of women visiting waterfalls in the area. Seven of us rented the cottage for a long weekend, and we were all pleasantly surprised with the accommodations.
