Announcing a new Meetup for Vancouver Ladies Only Travel Group!
What: Manning Park Cabins - 2 nights
When: Friday, August 6, 2010 7:00 PM
Manning Park Resort
7500 Highway #3
There is a 2 night mimimum for the cabins in manning park, which are $249 per night. I'm suggesting we book 5 people per cabin (there are 4 bunk beds, 1 double bed, and a pull out couch) for the Fri-Sun. You are welcome to join us saturday morning if you can't come out Friday, but the price will remain the same. Once we have 5 -10 ladies, I will contact members to confirm booking.
Manning Park is beautiful- there are trails, a lake, and a lodge. We will have use of the indoor swimming pool and sauna, hot tub, etc. Each cabin will also have it's own kitchen, so we could do a pot luck the night we get there. There is also a restaurant in the lodge, if we want to eat there. The liquor store is about a 15 minute drive away, but it's private- costs are high, limited selection of wines (last time I went, they had 2 - one red, one white). I suggest we bring our own alcohol and snacks if you want them.
There will be tons of things for us to do here! Canoes and kayak rentals, hiking along the lake, maybe a wine tasting? Everyone bring a different bottle of wine? Lots of ideas! If you've never been here, it's quite beautiful- but it does tend to get cool at night, so bring a sweater. Manning park is a 3 hour drive from Vancouver. Lots of trees and outdoor activities. Personally I would like to do a couple of hikes, but we'll see what the group is into.http://www.manningpark.com/summer.lake.html
Cost per person for the 2 nights will be $108 - I will be asking people to pay in advance, and your spot will be given up to someone else if you fail to do so ( I have to pre-book the cabins). I will be driving, and have room for 3 people in the car. If anyone else is willing to drive, please say so in your RSVP! Suggested carpool is $5 per hour of driving, to help with gas. That seems to be the rate other groups are charging, and this seems fair. Please , please pay your driver at pick up.
