We came up for the weekend for the fall crawl. On the suggestion of a friend we booked a cottage. So glad we did! Our cottage was the perfect size for us and it was very clean! Staff was friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go again! Just booked for another weekend! Loved it!

This is a great little motel/cottages. We came in on a Friday night and left on Sunday morning. It was Halloween weekend. The cottages are newly updated. And most importantly they are clean. Bed linens are provided but you need to bring your own towels. Kitchen items, plates, silverware, pots and pans are provided for your use. The hotel staff...

We were looking for an inexpensive room within walking distance of all the attractions of Geneva on the Lake, OH. After looking on line, I found this motel. The rooms are small, but they're very clean. My only complaint was the bathroom was tiny with a small shower.
