Great place to stay with plenty of room for the four of us. Can accomadate two families easily with the two separate toilets and two separate shower room. Great laundry/mud room. Very close to Ohwakune, less than ten minutes if the rail road is taken.

One of the best places I have stayed. Outstrips other motels, hotels and other book-a-bach's. Would recommend this to everyone.
