As a family-owned hotel, the accommodations felt more like a bed and breakfast than a hotel, complete with wonderful options for breakfast and attention to the details. We only did an overnighter, but we said we wished it would have been one of our longer stays on our three-week vacation.

My husband and I were traveling from Yellowstone back to our home in Michigan. I’m super picky when it comes to staying in hotels and this place did not disappoint me at all. It was super clean-the staff was super friendly-the free breakfast was far above any other free breakfast I’ve had at a hotel. The decor was unique with a fishing/outdoor theme making it feel like a lodge. I can not say enough good things about this place. Kudos to the staff/manager etc for a wonderful experience.
