Joe, at the front desk is very helpful and accommodating. He made our stay very pleasurable. The rooms were cozy, atmosphere was friendly, and the restaurant has great food. This place is very handicap accessible. Casey was also very helpful in helping with our pontoon rental. I would recommend anyone to a great stay here!

The hotel staff greets you by name and treats you like family. The evenings are spent at the restaurant /bar and Cole especially makes a customer feel welcome. He has a drink called the "pudwill" and it is smooth and very refreshing! Would definitely recommend!!
