    We are very greatfull that our family of 5 was accommodated. Breakfast was wonderful. The rooms were decorated very beautifully. We'll be back in the future for sure. The motel was easy to access and in a quiet location.

    This is a gem of a place a cozy location minutes away from town . It has the cabin feel yet wifi is available by their remote lake. If here during winter they have cross country ski available and ice rink .
