    Great motel with lots of amenities.

    Beautiful little spot! Clean, spacious room. Lots of little extras. Everything we needed. Great breakfast in our fridge (so no contact during Covid). Had a fire it by the lake, walked all the trails. Canoeing and cross country skiing available. Close to everything in Stratford. We had a wonderful time!

    wonderful, worry free stay.

    An envelope was attached to the office door with our room key and instructions. There were people available in the office if you required assistance. The room was very clean with nice little touches like umbrellas, books, coffee maker, microwave and a fridge with a big freezer on top. You can hike along a couple of trails around the water. In the summer there are two gazebos, bar-b-ques, kayaks, canoes and bikes to use. A beautiful, restful setting. The manager was friendly and helpful. A very pleasant stay. Would highly recommend any time of year. Covid procedures were in place.

    Lovely setting, and you really feel that this hotel is family owned and they take great care in the details and want you to enjoy your stay. Clean and cheerful.

    My husband and I spent 2 nights in the King b&b room. It is in the house across the road from the motel. Just what I was looking for , a beautiful room with a tv and fireplace(electric), jetted bath for two, separate room with a sofa, tv , table and chairs. The grounds are carefully looked after. The small walking trails around the place have been made with care and I would say easy for anyone to walk on. They have covid 19 rules in place to help protect everyone.
