Frequently Asked Questions
What is a credit card hold?
Credit card holds are standard in the hospitality industry. It is essentially a security deposit that we refund to you 3 days after your stay. If you do not follow our rules or cause damage to the property you risk losing your security deposit and incurring additional fees.
What is the accidental damage protection fee?
Accidents happen and we don’t want them to ruin your trip! For a small fee, accidental damages to a cabin are covered. Any damage not covered by this insurance could result in the loss of your security deposit and additional fees.
Fowler Cabin - $5,000
Spring Water Retreat - $3,000
Why am I being charged a cleaning fee?
Cleanliness and sanitation are very important to us and to our guests. We do not cut corners when it comes to cleaning. Our cleaning crew makes sure each cabin is deep cleaned and spotless before a guest arrives. Want to avoid paying the fee? Guests who stay longer than 3 nights will not be charged a cleaning fee!
Guest receives 100% (less $50.00 cancellation fee) if cancellation occurs at least 14 days before arrival; Guest receives 50% (less $50.00 cancellation fee) if cancellation occurs at least 7 days before arrival; No refunds within 7 days of arrival. $50 fee is to partially cover the processing fees associated with the transactions.

DURING YOUR STAY
Can I walk in the woods?
We ask our guests to stay out of the wooded areas. We are working on cleaning up the property and ask all guests to stay within the designated areas for their safety.
Can I bring my dog?
No. We do not allow pets or comfort animals on the property currently. If you break this rule you will forfeit your entire security deposit. No exceptions.
Will there be a host available on the property?
Contact is very limited. We try to give our guests as much privacy as possible. If there is any reason you need assistance during your stay someone is always nearby to help!
Are there security cameras?
Yes. We have outdoor security cameras at the entrance of each cabin. This is to prevent trespassers on the property and ensure a safe stay for our guests. We do not monitor or use the cameras during your stay
Can I swim in the lake?
If you are at a cabin with lake access, yes. Access to the main lake is limited to your cabin so please stay within your designated area and be respectful of other guests. The lake is spring-fed and has multiple aerators that make the water very clear. It is a lake so there are weeds, fish, and sometimes turtles in it. We do our best to keep areas near the beach as clean as possible.
How Deep is the lake?
There is a gradual slope reaching 16' deep in the center where you can see straight to the bottom.
Are there beach toys?
Yes, there are some toys for building sandcastles (buckets, shovels, etc.). There are no flotation devices to play with.
Can I bring a canoe, kayak, or other watercraft?
Sometimes... Please ask if you have any intention of bringing your own watercraft. You will be held entirely liable for any incidents, damages, or other issues. Again, we ask that you are respectful to other guests that may be using the lake.
Can I fish out of the lake?
Yes, but please be aware that our lakes are catch and release only! If you wish to learn more about trout fishing and other fishing in the area please visit our fishing page HERE
