You will find that all of our cabins have access to a great view of beautiful Lake Pend Oreille.  We have 1, 2 and 3 bedroom cabins; all with futons available in the living room. The cabins have kitchens with an electric stove, microwave, coffee pot and a full size refrigerator. Cable TV and WI-FI are provided. Each of our cabins has air conditioning for your comfort. Because our cabins are more like small houses they will have a separate kitchen, living room, separate bedroom(s), bathroom with a shower (#’s 1-6) or bathtub and shower (#’s 9-12).  Each of the hillside lake view cabins has a small yard around them with a picnic table and the lake level cabins have a deck that sits next to the lake with table, umbrella and chairs. We do have an occupancy limit per cabin which varies according to the size of each cabin.  Please be aware that all of our cabins are non-smoking units. 

We value being an accommodating establishment, but it is important to note that our cabins and resort facilities are for use exclusively by our registered customers and guests. In the past we've had issues with customers renting a cabin and having it as a meeting/party/shower spot for their friends and family camping in the park or staying at another location. This extra wear and tear on our property is not factored into our prices. We greatly appreciate your compliance with our policies and are happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have! Thank you!
