    Stayed here due to reading Tripadvisor reviews. Was not disappointed. Room, although small, was immaculate, super staff, great price. Although the room is small, who cares, your out touring all day and just sleep there. Would definitely come back.

    We have stayed here at The Lamplighter 3 times. We like it better every time. A nice mom n pop motel. The plants and flowers around the grounds are beautiful. The rooms are always spotless. Not very big rooms but why do you need more...More

    AMAZING place to stay! Warm atmosphere, clean rooms.... It's truly a home away from home. Our family has been visiting for years and have always been impressed. Our trips up north wouldn't be the same without a stay at the lamplighter.

    THey did not include breakfast but recommended a great place within walking distance for which they gave us a coupon. It is an easy walk to town (maybe a block) and the bridge (maybe three blocks)
