Covid-19 Update:  We have update our cleaning standards to new hygienic requirements in rooms. Any common facilities have sanitizer outside and disinfectant inside for your use.   We sanitize public use areas multiple times daily.   We do not clean rooms during your stay as required under Covid-19.  All our rooms have separate HVAC, cooling and heating systems from other rooms.  We clean public facilities multiple times daily.  Masks are required in the public shared areas.  Do look at the Private Family Dorm Rooms and Cabins as an alternative the youth hostel dormitories for 5 or 7 guests each.

Radiating out from the roundabout in front of the lodge we have restored old sugar pine cabins into the family dorm rooms over twenty years ago and have added new stilted hillside cabins with private rooms, family cabins, tent cabins and vacation homes. In different rooms you will discover different old, refinished and new furnishings and decor each time you visit. We are having a great time with these rooms and sure hope you do as well.  Vacation rentals do not have housekeeping services as the rest do and, of course, all accommodations have linens.  Parking can be hundreds of feet from your cabin on this hillside property.  

You will find accessible rooms online with van accessible parking, but with all rooms, on this hillside there are three levels of parking areas that may not be on the same level of the van accessible parking at the spa, reception, restaurant and meeting room. The spa, reception and restaurant are all ramp access.

Hotel Style Private Rooms With Baths

$85.00 to $195.00 seasonal
The best rooms with love and character, these rooms come in a variety of bed types for couples to families. These duplex cabins at 300 sf each all have forest views and decks with tables and chairs. Not so rustic with fine linens, fine bath products, towels, showers, heat, coolers and wi-fi. The rustic reflects in the lack of TV’s or phones and remote parking.  An accessible room with two queens at 360 sf and and roll in shower accessible restroom are near a van accessible with ramp to room.  This is not the accessible same hillside level of the Main Lodge amenities.
