What if the number of guests in our party is more than what the cabin sleeps, can we use air mattresses, RV’s or tents?
No, due to fire marshal regulations and insurance purposes, the number of guests per cabin is strictly enforced. If you have more people in your party, we recommend reserving a larger cabin or 2 cabins close together. No tents or RV parking/hook-up on cabin property is permitted. The maximum capacity of the cabin is inclusive of the cabin property and can not be exceeded by the use of RV and/or tents. Hooking up an RV will be assessed a $100 per night fee in addition to an over occupancy failure to comply fee of $100 per night/per person, if applicable.
