What is the minimum / maximum that is needed for a reservation?
Our cabin can hold 6-8 guest comfortably. Therefore, our minimum for a reservation is 6 guests or $750 for a two-night stay (e.g. Friday check-in at noon and Sunday check-out at 4 p.m.). You can certainly choose to have less guests come to the cabin but your rental fee would still be $750. Obviously, if you have 7 guests it would be $875 for a two-night stay and 8 guests would be $1000 for a two-night stay.
Deposits of $175 are paid at the time of booking to hold your dates and deposits do count toward your rental fee.
