Heather ‘Greulich’ Bockhorst

 

Was a great place to stay. Rooms were very clean and freshly decorated. A.C. worked great. Close to walking distance of a great deli and Jolly Cone. Highly recommend. Also the owners are very friendly. Definately will be coming here again.

Sam Martin

 

It is a great place to stay! Clean rooms, newly remodeled so it looks great inside and out. The owners are the sweetest and was very accommodating to the us and the kids. They had a fun mike the monkey come around for the kids and delivered cookies. The river was closed so they let us stay at the pool as late as we wanted. They provide lots of activities just at the hotel and there is a booklet telling tourists other great places to go including restaurants. Definitely one of a kind place and people. The owners put hospitality back into hotel stays and show people why a small town is so much better. Will stay again.

Went on a girls trip to float on the river and stayed here for the weekend. It was very reasonably priced and in a great location. Teddy was awesome, he told us where all the cool sightseeing spots where. Definitely going to stay here again. Thanks for making our weekend so hassle free!
