I reserved my room for the Thanksgiving holiday period over the phone and was helped by Tara, the receptionist.

The people who work at Paddle Wheel Inn are so accommodating and friendly, especially Alex who helped us with our room reservations. I really love the setting and location of this place, right on the river! Beautiful! It had a great vibe. I like the cabin look on the inside. It was just the nature-infused get-away that I needed!
