Covid-19 Health & Safety Protocols
Current Opening Date & Cancellation Policies:
At present, we have moved our opening date to June 12, 2020. As travel restrictions continue to build, we are committed to being as flexible as possible, understanding our guests' travel plans will likely need to be postponed.
For guests who have booked and are due to stay between May 7th through June 12th , you will have the option to amend your booking to any other date in the season, based on availability. Please call 906-847-0101 to make the change. We can also put your reservation into a “holding pattern” and you can call us later in the season with alternate dates. Please note that we will do our best to honor the same room type, but availability changes day to day. The rate from your original reservation will be honored.
