The classic roadside motel was built in 1939 and retains the original historic footprint from an era when cars were first starting to be build for long distance travel.

Rooms were built small and kept simple with economy in mind.

 

We have nine of these traditional rooms, five mini cabins, two campgrounds, one Acorn travel trailer, and a one room vacation home called Hunter's Lodge available for nightly rental.
