great location, wonderful helpful host, absolutely spotless.
Carole, au2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
This place is super great - the rooms and bathrooms are spacious. There is a small kitchenette which is great. It is also very close to the downtown, making walking to restaurants, bars, shops, and attractions super easy. The owners are very friendly and provide a lot of information when you check-in, you can tell they run a family business and care about the state of the hotel and the quality of your stay.

Very good 8.0
A very nice gentleman checked us in and showed us to our room. The room was nicely decorated, had a heater and AC, was clean and relatively spacious. The location was the best part, though- directly across from the lake and within a short 3-5 minute walk to restaurants!
