Pet Policy: We allow pets in our quiet time with pre-approval. We charge $30.00 per night, what you would pay for a kennel, because we don't want that to be the reason you are bringing your pet.....


We can help you with that!


If you are looking for a place where you can try canoeing, kayaking, sailing, or paddleboarding for the first time, we will help you. Don't know how to make a campfire, we will help you. Don't know how to cast a line or take a fish off the hook. We are here for you, please just ask.
