My elderly mother, myself and my teenage daughter stayed at the motel for one night. The cottage was comfortable with a wood-burning stove, a small kitchen, nice sitting room, and separate bedroom. We were especially happy to have separate beds for each of us. The major down side was that we were at the end of the line for hot water and there was none for us until all the other guests had finished their morning ablutions. We had arrived quite late the night before, so it was not a major issue for us, but it might be for someone else. We did not buy the optional breakfast because it was full of dairy products.
The friendly, helpful owner showed us a video of fox kits on the property and we were sorry that we did not get to see them in person. We did meet the cat who liked to roost high in our garage, perhaps to stay away from the fox family.
