This page is for the cabin rentals only. The main event is posted here:

Cabin check-in time is 4 PM on Friday. Check-out time is 10 AM on Sunday.

You must check with the Blackwater Lodge registration desk when you arrive to confirm your cabin number. I will give them a list of names when I arrive.

Hollis, Kathleen and Jim have made payments for the cabins directly so please respect the property and don't leave any messes.

Park Map:

If you are in a Deluxe cabin, $5 will be due upon arrival and paid to either Jim or Kathleen.

I tried accommodate everyone's first choice for deluxe or regular. I also tried even out the males and females for room sharing purposes. Since the cabins are a little bit spread out, I thought it would be easier if people knew which cabin to head to, rather than moving bags later. We have deluxe cabins #29 and #30, and regular cabins #8 and #14. The cabin numbers are subject to change according to the Park.

The cabins have linens, pillows, blankets and a full kitchen with dishes, utensils, coffee maker, dish soap, etc. They DO NOT have coffee filters or paper towels. There are 4 rooms in each cabin - 2 with two twins and 2 with one queen. I put the guys on twins, but feel free to re-arrange yourselves in the cabins if you want to.

Cabin #30 (Deluxe) - Please pay $5 to Jim upon arrival.

Hollis - Twin 1 Larke - Twin 2 Kelley - Twin 3 Susan - Twin 4 Jim - Queen 1 Kirsten - Queen 1 Steve M - Queen 2 Steve M 2 - Queen 2 Cabin #29 (Deluxe) - Please pay $5 to Kathleen upon arrival.

Kathleen - Twin 1 Ying-Tzu - Twin 2 Jay - Twin 3 Neal - Twin 4 Tammy - Queen 1 Sara - Queen 1 Beth - Queen 2 Amy - Queen 2 Cabin #8 (Regular)

Please note there are no refunds, so you are committing to going on this trip regardless. That being said, this is a great deal and as always we will have more fun than a barrel of backpackers, winter snow style or not, but here is hoping for snow!!!
