Cancellation Policy

Because of our optimal and highly desirable location, there is a high demand for accommodations at our lodge. Therefore, we must enforce a strict cancellation and no-show policy. A 30-day cancellation notice is required during all holiday seasons including Spring Break; otherwise a 14-day notice is required during all other times throughout the year. If you cancel before the deadline, generally you will not be charged a penalty. However, if you fail to cancel before the stated deadline period, you will be held responsible for your entire reservation.
