COVID-19 Information:

We feel extremely fortunate to have concluded our 2020 season without having to shut down or cancel any trips due to a Covid exposure and/or outbreak on any of our trips or at our property.

In our continuing effort to keep our guests and team safe, our guide staff and those working at the lodge have committed to obtaining the Covid vaccination as soon as it becomes available to them.

We will continue the safety protocols that kept us operating through 2020 and will heed any recommendations by our County Board of Health.

With the uncertainty of travel due to Covid, we cannot emphasize enough the need to protect your financial travel investment with trip insurance. As a small, family-operated lodge, a canceled trip is next to impossible to re-book on short notice. Travel insurance can help to reimburse your expenses should you or someone in your party have to cancel.

Thanks for your understanding – we look forward to seeing you in the future!
