Do you need a deposit to hold my reservation?
Half the amount of your stay rounded down to the nearest $50 if by check, exactly half if by credit card online.
Example: Cabin is $1290, deposit is $600. Deposits from reservations made via phone are due within 7 business days of making the reservation and can be made by check (made out to Campfire Bay Resort) or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express). Reservations made online can only be done with credit card and your deposit will be taken immediately.
What if I need to cancel?
If we are able to rebook the vacancy created by your cancellation, which we’ll make every effort to do, you’ll get your deposit back minus a cancellation fee of $75. If we cannot rebook the vacancy, regardless of when you cancel, you will not receive your deposit back.
If you are concerned about losing your deposit due to a cancellation, we suggest getting trip insurance. One option is Travel Guard which is what Brian and Heather Sams (owners) use when they take trips.
In the event that you cancel a scheduled wedding, you should let us know as soon as possible. If you let the office know more than 6 months in advance, you will be responsible for $200. If you cannot let the office know more than 6 months in advance, you will be responsible for 50% of the total wedding cost.
If you are planning a wedding, then an option for wedding insurance is protectmywedding.com
Do you have a minimum stay?
3 nights from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day and 2 nights the rest of the year.
What are your check-in/check-out times?
From Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day our weeks run Saturday to Saturday and check-in is after 3pm and check-out is 9am any day.
However, if there is no one checking into your cabin or out of your cabin on the day you arrive or depart, then check-in/check-out can be negotiable. Call or email to inquire. Otherwise, please respect our check-in/check-out times so that we can properly prepare your cabin and the resort grounds. In the off-season, our check-in time is after 3pm and check-out is by 11am. See the crafting page for “winter” times.
Are pets allowed?
We can recommend two nice nearby boarding facilities if you want your pet out on the lake with you during the day. Another option is to check out Sams Island Cabin ( https://samsislandcabin.com/ ), a 2br cabin on a 1 acre island out in front of the resort also owned by the owners of CBR. Pets are allowed there and dogs love the freedom to have an island to themselves!
