5/5 Excellent

Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The cabin I stayed in was nice, pans available were not very good and I was chasing mosquitos the first night.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
The room was clean, and bed was comfortable. Location was very convenient to the lake,parks, and beaches. We were travelling with our two golden retrievers, so it was nice to be able to bring them along, and there was a dog park right across the road from the motel. Although the room was clean, and flooringlooked like a fairly recent renovation, the room was rather shabby, with cracked, peeling wood laminate/composite furniture, old appliances. We stayed in a cottage with kitchenette, but there would have been no way to use the kitchen unless you brought along your own utensils, pot or pan, and cleaning supplies(no forks, spoons, cups, glasses,pots,pans, coffee maker or kettle, etc.)No dish soap or dish cloth,etc.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We stayed in one of the cabins and, for $100 a night, I would have expected much cleaner conditions. There was still a used hand soap in the shower. The bathroom was full of guck and dead bugs. I have stayed in cabins in many other areas of Vermont, New Hampshire, and upstate New York, and this was the worst.
