This was our second time coming and we loved it both times! They've recently updated and put in air conditioning in the rooms which didn't help us this time, as it wasn't super hot. But in mid August like our first trip, it will be much needed.
Yes, it's small. Yes, it's a motel. And yes, my boyfriend and I are pretty easy to please. We LOVE this place. But if you swing more towards downturn service and chocolate covered strawberries, this might not be your cup of tea.
It's a perfect location, just steps from the centre of everything, close walk to the waterfall, free coffee and tea whenever, pet friendly rooms. What more could you want?
Ah, you could want the bedrooms facing the lake and the main road. The seats outside are perfect for people watching. There are only five rooms on that side but can't help to ask!
We'll be back for years to come. Every June is our plan. Can't wait.
