How do I make a reservation?

What are the prices and payment methods?

Our Rental Cabins have different rates for members and non-members, weekends and weekdays. See cabin pricing details for more information.

The Lodge and Dining Hall are priced based on the type of group, time of week, size of group, number of meals, and any special needs. For pricing information, please contact us.

We accept cash, check, Mastercard, or Visa. A non-refundable deposit on cabin rental is required to guarantee your reservation and is due within 30 days of your reservation. If your reservation date does not allow for the 30 days, this deposit is due at the time you make your reservation.
