We loved our short stay at the Cottage Mews Motel. We arrived after the office was closed but the owners left a key for us to collect, the heaters were already on and the place was lovely and warm. Things were very clean and beautifully presented in all areas of the motel. The motel is well positioned and very close to the lake. We will be back.
