We hope all of you are staying healthy and safe during this challenging time. Since COVID-19, we have taken additional measures to ensure an even safer environment for our guests. Social distancing and no direct exchange of payment has always been in place. The cabins are personally cleaned and sanitized by us. There now is a gap of one day prior and one day after all reservations. Shortly after your on-line reservation request, we will call you personally to review policies and to answer questions. Now more than ever, we want your stay to be relaxing and worry free.
