Owned by V. Goettel, Maple Manor Hotel was located east of the Miniature Golf Course (Allison’s) on the south side of Lake Road.
The Manor offered, in 1935, 30 rooms and four cottages. It was adjacent to the Hotel Colonial.
We vacationed every summer at Idle-A-While in the late '50s and early '60s, partially because my aunt was the receptionist there. I often got to ring the bell summoning guests to breakfast, lunch and dinner in the dining room, which was staffed by co-eds from various universities. Evenings were spent playing bingo, fascination and other games on the strip or bridge and poker back at Idle-A-While. Great memories.
