The accommodations at the pet-friendly Lazy L include guest rooms in the Main Inn or the private, two-room suite cottages.

The first floor of the Lazy L offers the “Key West” room for rent.

The “Flamingo” room has a queen size bed and a private bathroom that connects to the “Key West” living area.

One of the guest rooms that are available on the second floor of the Lazy L is the “Nature” room. The entrance to this guest room is up a flight of external stairs, and the room features a view of the nearby Old Mill Creek through the double windows. This is the largest room on the property and, in addition to the usual amenities, the rooms also include a writing/computer desk, a queen size bed on a sleigh frame, an attached bathroom that is only for private use, and two sitting chairs. The “Nature” room shares a large living area space with the next door “Lighthouse” room.
