PRICES

PLAN #1:We charge $1,250 per night to rent the entire lodge without  food or food service.  With this plan, you are welcome to bring your own food and use all of our facilities to cook for yourself.

We will help you get acquainted with all the Lodge facilities and tools during an initial 1 hour walk through.  We will then leave you alone to enjoy the Lodge and surroundings on your own, yet are only a phone call or a few minutes away if you need help with something. 

PLAN #2: We also will rent the entire lodge, and our professional staff will be glad to cook  for you and provide  you with world class service. We can do anything from hog roasts for 50 to intimate white table cloth dinners for 8. The Lodge rental is $1,250 per night and our food prices vary depending on your needs. Just ask us to provide you a price based on what you are looking for.
