Each year in July my family gets together for a reunion at Lake Taghanic State Park. Those of us who have come from longer distances than a just a day trip stay over at the Taghkanic Motel for the weekend. This motel (and Jo Jo's Pizza) have become part of our family's tradition. The place is clean and the family who runs it are lovely people. You get the basics: a clean bathroom, clean beds, good air conditioning and a small fridge. There's no coffee makers in the rooms.... but the Getty station is just across the street and they have good coffee there:) There are two picnic tables; one on either end of the motel. This past time we were there my family took up 7 out of the 10 rooms. The owner's son was kind enough to move the picnic tables together by the tree house, which is located right next to a very large lawn. We cooked out and had a blast! It's a very basic and we just love it!
