We stayed in a cabin, it was quaint and pleasant. Everything we needed was available. Property staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Location is a 5 minute walk to boardwalk and all attractions. Property was peaceful and relaxing, the views of lake and mountains beautiful from our porch.

Great View

Pros: Nice view of the mountain and lake.
Cons: Close up the 3 inch gap under the door. Also, plug up the holes near the air conditioner.
Location: Most of the restaurants and pubs are only open on Friday and Saturday.
Nice view of the mountain and lake. Had some sort of critter crawl under the door at 10pm. It was about a foot long and kinda looked like a ferret. Stuffed towels under the door after I chased it out.

Skip Cottage 9

Pros: Close to everything at Weirs and easy access to points of interest. Private porch with great view of the lake. The pool was clean and refreshing.
Cons: More detailed cleaning. Provide places to hang bath towels, bathing suits & beach towels. Fix the broken headboards.
Location: Walking distance to go karts, arcades, putt-putt, water bumper cars, bars with live music, boating, beach. Convenient to the lakes & mountains.
In the area for a softball tourney & thought staying at Weirs would be fun for the family between games. My expectations were not luxurious, this is a motel after all. I have no aversion to a motel by any means, so I trusted the high reviews of this place & booked it. We ended up in Cottage 9 on the corner, attached to a larger cottage. We had a private porch w/ a great view of the lake. The appointed parking space is a tight parallel spot in front of the cottage. The room itself was relatively clean, if a little outdated & old smelling. Both beds headboards were broken & the beds themselves were very squeaky w/ firm mattresses but comfy soft pillows & nice clean sheets. The space was tight w/ poor options to store/unpack things. A cottage with a pool, at a beach, that accommodates up to 6 people had only 1 towel bar (w/ all our clean towels on it) but not one hook to hang a wet towel, not even a place for a hand towel. Bathing suits, and any towels had not a single place to drape or hang. It rained one day so even the chairs on the porch got wet. That was something of a damper on things, literally. The family staying in the cottage attached to ours on the 2nd night sounded like they were rearranging the furniture, constantly. Being on the corner, late night bike traffic was very loud too. We ride so bikes don't bother me, unless I need to sleep. Maybe an inner room would be less noisy. I advise bringing a candle for the smell & your own dish sponge; theirs was mildewy.
