Birds & Butterflies

There's a variety of wildlife at the motel.

In an effort to attract birds, butterflies and other wildlife, great consideration was given in the types of plants used in the landscaping of the courtyard, patio and garden areas. With 10 acres available, guests can feel free to wander about the property in search of that new or elusive bird to add to your life list.
