What Fees are charged:
I have noticed that some resorts charge additional fees to the listed prices. Does your resort do this? No. We do not charge a booking fee, lodging, or resort fees. We charge a total pet fee of only $20.00 and a credit card processing fee. We charge a cleaning fee on 2+ bedroom cabins and some cabins that sleep 4 or more people. We charge a base rate which is priced for a two night minimum stay at two guests per bedroom. Local taxes are added at the rate of 9.25%. Additional fees may apply when excess cleaning is needed due to pets or other unforeseen dirt/materials are encountered.
