I miss this place. My family stayed here every year for a few years. This place is old school. No wifi. Limited tv. Place was a throw back to the 70's but my requirements are cleanliness & service. Room was clean & service was great. Bonfire in evenings was a great way to meet other guests. Food was decent but...

Old fashioned motel in the mountains place, with an on-site restaurant that serves very decent food. On the Lake with a great view, boat slip, and relaxation. If your a camper type person, this is a nice upgrade, but not a high rent place, and that's a good thing! Ordinary people enjoying the great outdoors, and only about 12 minutes...

If you want a vacation like you've been waiting for....that vacation that is eluding you....go to Rainbow Cove. Today we are hassled at airports, struggle to get into hotel rooms piled on top of one another, search for good food....enough! Drive to Rainbow Cove, hop in your room, and the rest is at your reach--it's easy, it's friendly, it's all...

Stayed this past weekend with my husband and 9 year old. We all enjoyed it. The location is beautiful. The bonfire great. The restaurant has very good homestyle food. We met nice guests many of whom come every year. Our room seemed fairly recently renovated. The beds are not very comfortable. The cost is very reasonable. We would definitely come...

My husband and I have been coming here for years each summer for a few days. We no longer even leave to do the wine tours, we now just relax, read, watch the water, take walks and find ourselves. No matter where else we go all year, Rainbow Cove is THE place we think about and look forward to the...

Owner Jef makes us feel at home right as we checked in. Restaurant serves excellent food and is real home made food at a very reasonable price. This place is so beautiful as like a place out of the past. Simple but very beautiful quiet place right on the shore of the lake. Accommodations very nice...some age when in the...

It's a very peaceful location, right on Lake Seneca. The rooms aren't fancy and it's an older style motel but it is kept very clean and the grounds are very well maintained. When we arrived we remarked that it looked good, as if the grass had just been cut and then, just two days later, they were cutting it again!...

Such a cute place, great price, clean rooms, nice people. Perfect location best in the area. Hard to get reservations so make them far in advance. Nothing like it in the area! Close to many wineries and you are right on the water. No other hotel or motel in this area offers this feature.
