Q: How do I get there?

Q: Why do I need a flashlight?
A: The “green house” (bathroom) is a dark walk from the cabin at night.

Q: Do you have cabins with bathrooms in them?
A: There are a few cabins with facilities available. Let me know if you need one of these, and I will work to accommodate you.

* One four person cabin (1 room full size bed, 1 room two twin) with full bathroom.
* Rustic hermitage, lake view, away from main camp.

Q: What if I’m not crafty?
