We love the Lander's House! Stayed here a couple of times now and they are very accommodating. The rooms/cabins are so unique! We hope to keep coming back until we've had a chance to stay in each room or cabin. The served breakfast is absolutely delicious! I would recommend to ANYONE.

Awesome breakfast, fun themed cottages. We always feel well pampered. They are pet friendly, so we can bring our little dog with us.

We couldn’t have been more pleased with the accommodations. The room was very large because of the lofted bedroom layout. Location can’t be beat, right next to town.

So tastefully theme decorated. Very private and cozy. Walking to bars and good food, short drive to the state parks, and the breakfast was to die for! Will return!

Little hidden gem....relaxing and accommodating. Staff was wonderful and cottage was spacious. I will definitely be back in the future!

We stayed in the caribou cottage and it was fantastic. The whirlpool, the fireplace and the breakfast were to die for! Highly recommend.
