All cabins have some type of stairs, whether inside for a loft or second story or on the front porch, which could be dangerous for smaller children/babies. Also, cabins are not “child-proofed”. If bringing children, you should check each space for potential hazards and mitigate the potential danger.  


PETS - Our cabins are dog-friendly and dogs are welcome! We allow up to 2 dogs per cabin maximum. There is a $40 dog fee. This is a one time fee that is not charged for subsequent stays provided there is no damage or excessive cleaning required. For additional information please view our pet release we require to finalize your stay.

Need more flexibility and financial peace of mind? You can choose to add travel insurance during checkout through our program, or you can purchase it from any provider you prefer. The decision is entirely yours! Resnexus offers a travel insurance program with benefits designed to protect your trip in case of unforeseen circumstances.

While we do not earn any commission incentives if you choose Resnexus travel insurance, we may receive reimbursement when your claim is approved. Here is a brief overview of the offered programs and some key advantages of opting for this insurance:

1. **Coverage for Sickness:** Travelers can be insured against trip cancellations due to illness. This ensures that if you or a traveling companion becomes sick, you won't lose your entire investment in your trip.


2. **Travel Delay Protection:** This benefit helps cover additional accommodation costs or travel expenses if your trip is delayed. This is particularly beneficial for dealing with unexpected changes in flight schedules or other transportation issues.


3. **Adverse Weather Coverage:** This coverage helps protect against trip cancellations due to severe weather conditions that prevent you from reaching your destination. This can include hurricanes, blizzards, or other dangerous weather scenarios.
