Guest Activities:

We recommend booking in advance for add on activities to ensure that your top choices are available to you during your stay! (Even if activities are included with your stay, they do require advance registration.) We’ve got great offerings for both winter and summer months! Check out availability here to start planning your schedule. As an overnight lodge guest we would like to make booking as easy as possible. Most (not all) of our activities have discounted rates for lodge guests. While our deposit policy is the same for all activity bookings (25%), lodge guests will receive applicable discounted rates at the time of final billing on the day of their activity.

Cancellations made more than 30 days in advance will receive a 100% refund of the deposit. Cancellations made within 30 days – 72 hours will be refunded the deposit minus a software/processing fee. Cancellations made within 72 hours will forfeit the full 25% deposit. If we cancel the activity/rental for any reason, a 100% refund will be issued within 7 – 10 business days.

Housekeeping Notice:

Provided in your cabin you will find a welcome basket with coffee grounds, tea, and popcorn! All linens and towels are provided in your cabin. We supply dish soap and dishwasher pods (for cabins that have them), laundry pods for cabins with washing machines, hand soap, hand lotion, shampoo, and body wash. As best we can we supply Dawn dish soap, SoftSoap handsoap, and Ginger Lily Farms for shampoo/body wash/lotion. We do have some extras available by request! We can supply a pack and play (you bring blankets), iron, or crock pot!

Our housekeeping crew will be coming by daily to check your door tag to see if you need anything.. Please hang your door tag on your exterior most door by 10AM or we may miss you! We will deliver requested items in a bin or bag outside of your front door. Deliveries will happen by 4 pm. Please call or email the front desk if you need something more urgently, and we would be happy to arrange drop off. Our team will not be entering cabins during your stay.

If you need to empty your trash, please put it in the entryway of your cabin by 2PM, as we will then be coming around to pick it up at cabins that indicate on their door tag that trash is in entryway. Keep all trash inside your cabin to ensure we do not have any furry visitors.

Our checkout time has been updated to 10AM to ensure that our housekeeping crew has ample time in preparing our cabins.

Operating Cabin Heat:

A note from our Maintenance Team

Our heating systems operate using REA off-peak control. They are designed to be more energy efficient and environmentally friendly than conventional heating systems by only charging overnight and using the outdoor temperature to anticipate the heating needs for the next 24 hours, limiting wasted heat and power. To control them, you simply need to use the thermostats located on the walls or on the heaters (if the heater has a digital display) to control the temperature in the cabin. These heating systems are designed to maintain a stable temperature throughout your stay, they are not designed to change the temperature significantly in a short period. Our cabins also have either gas or wood-burning fireplaces which supplement the heating systems while providing that cabin-in-the-woods feel.

It’s recommended to set the heat to the level you would like it to be when you arrive on the first day of your stay and allow at least a few hours for the temperature to adjust, although this can take up to 24 hours to stabilize if the change is more than 5 degrees. If you significantly increase the temperature of the cabin, don’t be alarmed if air coming out of the heaters isn’t as hot in the evening, this is normal and they will recharge overnight and add extra heat as needed. Please refrain from placing items on the heaters themselves as they can be hot at times.

If you feel the cabin is too hot, simply turn the thermostats down a little and the cabin will cool off over time. This can be expedited by opening a window or two but don’t forget to close them, it can get really cold at night! Also, do take into account that using the gas or wood-burning fireplaces generates heat as well and will increase the temperature in the cabin. We ask that you please do not turn the thermostats off entirely, 60 degrees would be the lowest temperature we use in winter months.

We ask that only our staff make adjustments to the heaters themselves or turn off electrical breakers. If you have any concerns that the heaters are not operating properly, please notify us right away and we will come assist you. We want you to be comfortable during your stay with us so please don’t hesitate to ask.
