6. What if it is hot? We are far enough north that hot nights are seldom a problem. Many guests will bring box fans, just in case. Cabins 17, 18 and 19 have air conditioning and the lodge units 14, 15, and 16 have air conditioners.

Everyone has access to this area at other times of the week; just ask, and we will set up a fire and provide plenty of wood. Our only restriction relates to the level of noise after quiet time.
10. When do I check-in & check-out? Prompt 9:00 am check-out insures us enough time for cleaning. This helps us make sure our accommodations are ready for the next 4:00 pm check-in.
