Q: What are the prices like during the winter season?
A: Prices vary according to whether you choose a room at a lodge or a cabin. Rates will vary according to how many people are staying in the cabin/lodge, and your arrival date. For example, accommodations on a holiday weekend are priced higher than a mid-week visit. Typically rates start at $89 and range up to $300 a night, plus tax.
Q: Is it better to rent a room or a cabin?
A: The answer depends on the ambiance and amenities you’re looking for. Many of the inns and lodges will allow for single night bookings whereas most cabins require a 2-night minimum stay. Some cabins also charge a cleaning fee whereas none of the lodges or inns do.
Q: Why do so many cabins charge an extra cleaning fee?
