Cancellation Policy: Cancellations must be made 30 days prior to the reservation for a refund less the $30 processing fee.  If the cancellation falls within the 24 hours of making the reservation, we will waive the $30 processing fee.

Deposits will NOT be refunded for cancellations within the 30-day window. In the event the cancelled room(s) are refilled up by another party, it is at the sole discretion of the owners to determine if a refund is made to the original reservation.

Covid-19 Policy (updated May 15th, 2021):

We take everyone’s health and safety very seriously, including that of our family who live in an adjoining building and our staff who work onsite. We are taking every precaution in and around the lodge to ensure the highest level of cleanliness by following the current guidelines. Masks will no longer be required for vaccinated guests, per the CDC’s May 13th, 2021 announcement. We ask that anyone not wearing a mask be extra courteous to those who may have concern or be immunocompromised.

Room service will not take place daily.  Instead, we have service request sheets in the room for when our guests want to request linens, towels or anything else that is needing replacement or cleaning.  We will be changing bed sheets after a guest stays for three days.

We look forward to seeing you very soon.  Safe travels everyone!
