Absolutely perfect new owners have completely renovated the place and have done a very professional, thorough job. The rooms are right on the water in a very quiet setting I left my door open all night and listened to the water. Very tasteful decor, what you see in the pictures is what you get. Easy to book, Friendly service Thanks...

Modern, updated and very clean room with a spectacular view of the lake. Very relaxing and peaceful. The odd situation was that there is no manager on site. The owner will text you the code to get into your room and is available if you need anything (via phone). Unless you are a fisherman or enjoy sitting in a bar,...

Hi Pat! Thank you for stopping in to see us in our first season! We came up with the idea with the digital keypads for the doors after we stayed in motel near the Adirondack's. It fit our situation with only owning the "motel" side, as traditionally The Sunset filled both sides of the road, motel overlooking the water and...

In years passed, we have stayed at the Sunset Hotel. We stopped going there a couple of years ago because it was run down, dirty, and was in bad need of many many upgrades. We passed through Henderson Harbor this past June and were delighted to see someone working on the rooms. We stopped and talked to the gentleman and...

Hi Debbie! We are so happy that you stopped by in June! It is so nice to have guests who have stayed in the past return to give us "another chance". We have worked hard and appreciate your feedback. Since your stay we have completed the landscaping, Kayak/Canoe launch and the renovated boat docks that were completed in September! We...

We had the most enjoyable weekend here. The new owners have clearly invested a great deal of time and effort to make this a lovely place to stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable with large refrigerators, beautiful tile bathrooms and wooden floors. The deck is a wonderful place to sit and watch the boats go by in a nice...

Our family had a wedding near Henderson Harbor and my sister found this diamond online. Michelle B. and her husband have a gorgeous location right on the water. We took all seven rooms and were extremely satisfied with the accommodations. Rooms are spacious, clean, and bright. The deck was spectacular and private. We all recommend the Sunset Motel to anyone...

I have been staying at the Sunset, every fall, for more than 12 years. The location and view are top notch. Chris is one of the kindest and most attentive managers I've ever met. You need anything, she is there to help. This hotel is gem and I would certainly add it to your vacation list.

Was greeted by Chris soon after our arrival and had a wonderful conversation with her. The room was clean and neat and the view was beautiful across the bay. Chris made us feel right at home and there where no issues at all. After a wonderful dinner we enjoyed ourselves and a breathtaking sunset on the deck out back over...

You will be "greeted" I mean bitten and mauled by managers dog attempting to pay for your stay. When it rains the smell of raw sewage engolfs all hotel rooms on lake. I don't believe the showers have ever been cleaned. Its a below the low place to stay.

We did not stay at the hotel, but rented the home across the street. The hotel rooms were waterfront, I did not go in any, but they looked very very small. First let me say my rating of this property is compared to and based on places I normally stay at and review. When I travel I rarely stay at...
