Q. How do I know which cabin it is and how do I get the keys?

Specific cabin locations are listed in the directions, each cabin has a plaque hanging from the front porch with its name and, the cabin will be open with the keys on the hook inside the door – if it’s too late…we’ll just be leavin’ the light on.
Q. How far are the cabins from each other?
A. The Savannah cabin is approximately 75 yards from the Old Glory cabin. The office is further up the road and about 120 yards from the Old Glory cabin. You can see the layout of the property by clicking here, click on the "Map" tab above the pictures, click on "Satellite" just under the tabs. The top cabin is the Savannah and the bottom one is the Old Glory. Follow the road that curves in front of the Old Glory cabin to the right and you will see the office directly below the small pond.
Q. I am renting the cabin, so I can bring as many guests as I feel comfortable squeezing in right?
A. No, there is a maximum guest allowance on each cabin - children age 5+ count as guests. No additional monies will be accepted to exceed the stated maximum guest allowance for any given cabin, for any length of time, for any reason.
Q. What do I need to bring?
A. For you: Bring any personal articles (ladies?), food and drink items, coffee filters, foil, charcoal, lighter fluid, cooking oil, favorite pillow, videos, extra blankets for watching TV, etc. Be sure to get your supplies while in town because you won't want to leave once you arrive and, it's a good 45 minutes to town one way. Also, bring alcohol with you if you imbibe as it's a 4-hour round trip to the nearest liquor store. The cabins are on filtered well water, so there's no need to bring drinking water unless that is what you prefer.
For Activities: Fishing equipment and/or any other items conducive to the activities you plan on participating in. ATV riders should bring extra gasoline, goggles, hair clips, gloves, a jacket and bandana. If you are not familiar with the area, you may want to consider a compass.
Remember where you are going to be…in a remote location in the mountains on forest roads where your cell phone probably is not going to work, so it’s a good idea to examine your vehicle tires before you set out and, bring items just in case you have a flat like valve stems, a jack, air tank, etc.
