Thanksgiving Dinner Party and Log Pension Overnight

Hello Everyone,

Thanksgiving is a special time of the year. And you don't have to miss out on it even though you are so far away from home.

Lets rent out the entire beautiful Log Cabin pension complex and cook up the best thanksgiving meal you have had. We have been doing this for several years now. We know how to cook up the best homemade Thanksgiving meal this side of the Pacific. We just want to warn you that eating too much can bring about comatose! lol

The Homemade Meal Menu:

Cranberry Sauce
2 Kinds of Stuffing
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Homemade Gravy
Green Beans
2 Types of Salads
Dinner Roles with Butter
Pumpkin Pie
Marshmellows for Campfire

And here is the plan.

We have two cooks who have done this before and was a huge success. But we can always use more help. So if you love to cook and like to help please let us know. You will get a free bottle of wine or beer for helping with preparing and cleaning!^^ (Helpers need to arrive at the pension by 11AM)

More than half the people usually come alone so please do not hesitate to sign up even if you cant get a friend to go with you.^^ Meet new people, catch up with people you met on a previous trip and we will have the following things to keep us happy!^^

1. A Fireplace inside the Log Cabin
2. Campfire Outside with Marshmellows
3. Noraebang Gear in the Cabin
4. Bottle of Wine for 10,000 won 
5. 6 Packs of Beers for 15,000 won
6. Games of All Kinds
7. Stereo System to Play Music

This log cabin pension complex has 3 "large" units and 7 smaller private units. Each "large" unit has multiple sleeping rooms with a loft and big living room with fireplace in two of them. They are good for 20 to 28 people each.

We will designate two of these three as "party" units. If you plan to be up past midnight, then this is the unit you want to sign up for.^^

The third "large" unit will be designated as "quiet" unit. Sit down and have great conversations about the universe. Or something like that. ^^

Rooming for the "large" units will be based on first deposit first choose so those who make deposits first get to have priority on which cabins you stay.

There are a couple of double beds in a couple of the rooms in the "large" units. You can reserve to sleep on it paying an extra 5,000 won per person and will have to share it with someone. Most everyone will be sleeping on the "ondol" floor Korean style.

The 7 "smaller" units will be private units for those claim the units out right. And the pension charges more per person for those. There are four 4 person (6 max) units and two 6 person (8 max) units and one 8 person (10 person max) unit. These smaller units have one or two double beds. The 4 person units have a private wooden jacuzzi as well! 

Its possible to get private room for two at the pension next door if you pay extra for it so please send us an email. It may not be available if you don't reserve them in advance.
