Can NON-GUESTS and VISITORS use the POOL?

No, please bring your pool towels.  We do have a limited number of pool towels available for rent if you forget yours.

Is there a FIRE PIT?
Yes, we have one large fire pit in the common area between the two motels and one small fire pit area at the Lucky Horseshoe.  For all guests' safety, the Fire Marshall has specific guidelines for use of a fire pit within the village limits. 
These guidelines are posted by each fire pit.

Do we need to BRING ANYTHING for our cabin stay?
While we try to provide everything you'll need, we do suggest you bring your favorite non stick pan if you plan on making breakfast.  It will make your dishwashing a lot easier since those we offer are not non-stick and can be a job to clean!

Do we have to REGISTER additional GUESTS?
Due to insurance stipulations, only registered guests may use our facilities, which includes the pool, firepit area and any of the units. This also means family and friends staying elsewhere or visiting town may NOT use the restroom or shower in your unit. You may register them for the additional $10 per night fee if you have not reached the 4 person maximum occupancy for your unit.
