We have family in the area and seem to always stay someplace different when visiting, which isn't often enough since we live in Florida. We saw this on tripadvisor and the reviews were good enough to give it a try. We're glad that we did.
First of all, this is obviously not the Ritz, so don't expect frills and luxury. We stayed in one of the cabins, which have been around for a while. The carpet looked fairly new, the wood was beautiful and the entire room was very clean. The shower, although small, had a unique shower head that you could move out of the way, making the shower feel much larger than it was. The furniture needed replacing, but the chairs in the living area were comfortable and we used the trundle bed and the couch for our suitcases. The bed was a little hard for my taste, but wasn't uncomfortable. We brought our own pillows, which can always make a bad bed that much better. The kitchen had a two burner stove, sink and two refrigerators. One wasn't on, but it might not have been plugged in, and the other seemed warm, but the freezer worked great.
Outside was one of the best parts of this motor inn. The view was beautiful, right on the lake. There was a hot tub, which we didn't have a chance to use, and a fire pit that we had a chance to enjoy, both have great views. Each cabin had an area with a picnic table and gas grill.
The waterfront had a deck running the length withs steps for swimming access and docks with a paddle boat and canoes for rent, for a reasonable rate. There was a sandy play area for kids. I saw that someone commented about the lack of a beach, but most of the lake has a rocky coastline.
There is an outdoor "bar" area where you have a table, chairs and tv. We were there in early fall, so it wasn't really used much, but I could see it being a lot of fun in the summer.
The owners were super nice and we chatted with them about their motorcycles. Just really nice people.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would consider coming back, especially if we could have the time to enjoy the hot tub and fire pit.
