    Thank you Zachary! We really like that we are just a half a mile off of Hwy 61 - close to everything but really quiet! Cyndi

    We were impressed with the story of how this lodging was "assembled" and enjoyed a quiet night's sleep there. It's very clean and well-maintained. Breakfast is ordinary motel breakfast-room fare - not B&B type food.
