We had a family reunion here. This was the perfect place. Cabins were close, playground, pavilion - were right smack in the middle, which was excellent for kid wrangling... The pool was a good size and accommodated all of us..... Great Choice!

We rented one of the motel rooms, unit #1. It had the same basic feel that I would expect from one of their cabins, very cozy, rustic and homey. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and we will definitely stay again if we can!!
