Quirky and quaint what makes this an amazing place to stay is their incredible back yard and easy access to fun outdoor activities. The bonfire, the free kayaking right on crooked river, the nature preserve. Hard to compete with all of that in the area. Really great stay.

Had a great stay for our 25th anniversary. Staff is excellent and couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We enjoyed the trails, the canoes, the fire pit, adult time in the pool area. We will be back.

What a great hotel! We were met by friendly, smiling staff at check in. The room was large, clean, & met our needs. Great to have a small balcony that overlooked the lawn & river. Kayaks were available for the river. Linens & towels were fresh & bright white!! Great variety of food choices for breakfast. Pool was large & delightfully warm. We hope to be back!!
