All the small things you do that make a difference! Love the popcorn, friendly staff. The water with candy when leaving and offering a return discount! Great job. I have already recommended your accommodation to family and friends. Great location as well. I look forward to a summer visit. The rooms were clean and a good value. Thanks for a great visit!

Another awesome stay at Murphy's River Lodge! As always, easy check-in, super friendly staff, clean and comfy room. Love the courtesy dvd library! Hiccup at the end of our trip where we had to have our vehicle towed (no fault of lodge) and they were kind enough to extend access to our room for a couple hours past checkout as a courtesy with no extra charge.
