Reviews

I enjoyed my stay here very much. Very simple and quiet motel with all the necessities you need to enjoy your stay. If you want to cook your own meals you have full access to the kitchen. It has a microwave and stove and refrigerator and deep freezer in the lodge if you need a little more room to keep your catch. The owners are very friendly and genuinely care about you and they take excellent care the facility. I will definitely be coming back.

This was a very nice old fashion motel. The staff was extremely friendly & helpful with us being since we were 3 hours from home. The rooms were very clean. Everything was freshly painted and nice. The rec room had lots of activities to do. We enjoyed playing pool. It has ping pong, pinball a full kitchen and lots of other things. Very reasonably priced. Definitely will stay there again when in the area. About 15 minutes from Frankfort and about a 1/2 from Cadillac.
