If you would like to guarantee a room you may reserve at any time at the regular rate. Typically we have rooms available for this discount during the midweek, weekends we recommend a reservation if you really sure about your date of arrival.
Please note: Room rates are determined by the number of people not the number of beds. Price, either discount or regular includes a full breakfast in the morning. Room (discount or regular) use of beds and showers are for registered guests only.
4. Dogs: Dogs are not allowed in the main building or by the entrances and must be leashed at all times, There are a few spots to temporarily tie your dog outside. We have only 1 hiker with dog discount room available midweek (sunday - thurs nights) but not weekends. This room cannot be reserved. For reservations in our suites - please see our pet policy first. Sorry, it is not acceptable to leave your dog tied up outside to take a regular hiker room.
5. Camping: Camping/ cooking is not allowed on premises. We do however maintain an area across Route 4 for hikers to pitch tents, especially when rooms are not available. This is free, with a 2 night max, but use of our public bathrooms as a clean up station is not acceptable.
