One individual must be responsible for group bookings and ultimately responsible for an explanation of resort rules to all group members and any charges.

60-day cancellation period is required for all group reservations. Deposits are 50% + tax on total fees.

Kitchens: When sharing kitchens with other guests or having group meals please return all kitchen items to their respective cottage by the end of your stay.

Group Activities: Please obtain permission in advance for all group events (like barbeques) on the property. Scheduling with other groups may be necessary. A site fee may apply if non-registered guests are participating.

Additional Group Cleaning and Damage fees: Groups will be charged an additional $30 per cottage if kitchen equipment is missing or not back in the appropriate cottage, dishes are not done or excessive cleaning is required.
