I'm torn to give this quaint motel a great rating because it's such a wonderful little secret garden. We had the option to stay at one of the major chain hotel or here. The price was a bit better and the location was wonderful. Unfortunately...More

A beautiful room, beautiful property and excellent service. We stayed in the bed and breakfast and the room was above and beyond what we expected. The property it beautiful and the breakfast was nice. I would recommend it to everyone.

The entire grounds are lovely. Quiet, restful motel. Staff are invariably pleasant and helpful. Comfortable,clean, charming rooms. The motel is in the middle of a forest, but only 10 minutes drive from the theaters. Breakfast is very good.

Clean, friendly owners, roomy, informative, wonderful woodland setting, near town, easy access, wished we could have stayed longer and will likely return again next year. They need to get better pillows, but the beds were comfortable
