Please bear with us. We are in the process of updating how we do online reservations and it is not finished. If you are having trouble, please call or email us and we will be glad to help (and without all the fees!).


We will refund your deposit ONLY if we are able to fill your reservation.

Deposits are now $600.

We have NOT raised the rates, only the deposit!

FAS (Frequently Attempted Schemes):

I can’t come the week I reserved but I want to come a different week. Just move my deposit.

No! This is not ok! This is called a cancellation and you will lose your deposit if we are unable to re-rent the cabin you are cancelling. You may think this is no big deal, but it is literally a cancellation, which IS a big deal.

I’ve been coming there since before you were born! I don’t have to pay a deposit.


I’m coming three different times but only want to pay one $600 deposit.

There is a $600 deposit required per cabin, per week.

I already paid a $200 deposit for 2023. Do I have to pay more?

No. This is our policy going forward. If you’ve already paid a deposit for 2023, you’re good! There is no perfect time to make a change since there are always reservations already made. Starting January 1, 2023, any new reservations require a $600 deposit. Any reservations made prior are fine as-is. However, the same cancellation policy still applies to everyone.

This sucks! You didn’t used to be like this!

We agree! This REALLY sucks! Almost as much as seeing cabins that were rented sit empty during the height of summer like we experienced over and over and over again last summer!

I don’t feel comfortable paying that much of a deposit when I’m not sure I can come.

Then DON’T make a reservation! This is our livelihood, not your backup plan! Feel free to call any time and see what we have open when you decide you CAN come. We get a lot of last minute cancellations during the summer – it never hurts to call, email or send us a Facebook message to see what’s going on at any time. Things change constantly and something that works for you may have just popped up. Don’t stress yourself out trying to plan ahead if that’s not what works for you and your family. This is supposed to be a HAPPY place, not the reason for another ulcer. But…same goes for us! Stop with the last minute cancelling!!!


This comes out to $17.70 on the deposit. There are no fees if you use cash or a check!

I don’t want to pay online. How can I make a reservation?
