Border View is very clean, great people, and the restaurant and bar are hard to beat. A less expensive route, but not right on the lake is Lakeroads Motel. They have clean rooms, nice people, comfortable beds and good showers. It's our go to place besides Border View.
It's hinged but yes, friction holds it upright. I thought at first I might have to put pins in it to hold the bottom back but it doesn't move. It stays whether you want it in straight back or full slouch position. It really does work great, I have never sat in a comfortable booth type thing in a fish house so I didn't go that way. I wish I would have gone to one step softer foam but it's still just fine. I took the leftover foam and put it on the ends as you can see in the picture and cut holes for cans. That has to be the ultimate can cooler.🍺 The best thing is how much storage you get underneath.
