Nice lodge for a budget-friendly stay!
Great little lodge to spend a night! I was pleasantly surprised with the room. It was spacious, the bed was comfy, and it had everything we needed. I'd definitely stay here again!

Cozy and comfortable
Very nice little place and very friendly! We had just had a horrible experience with a different motel and ended up staying here. The rooms are fairly good size and we had a king bed and a queen bed. Would definitely stay here again!
