Included in rate – Our nightly rate for both the Cabin and the Yurt is based on double occupancy, which includes lodging, coffee/tea/hot chocolate, wifi, and access to the “Extras.” For more than two guests, charges will be applied for guests using the sofa bed or air mattress (see Rates).
Payment – We require 50% pre-payment at the time of booking, with the balance due 30 days prior to your scheduled arrival. We accept payment by credit card or e-transfer.
Applicable taxes – 5% GST and 8% PST will be added to the charges.
Damage deposit – There is no cleaning fee or damage deposit. We reserve the right to charge you in the event of loss, damage, or extra cleaning cost.
Minimum stay – During our Peak Season (from May 15 to Oct 15), a two-night minimum stay is required. On long weekends, a three-night minimum is required (either Thurs/Fri/Sat, Fri/Sat/Sun, or Sat/Sun/Mon). During our off-season one night stays will be accommodated one week in advance if available and will be subject to a $50 surcharge.
Additional guests – On booking, we require the names of all guests, including children. Small gatherings of family and friends are allowed, subject to the number of guests being confirmed in advance (due to septic system limitations).
Cancellations or changes – With greater than 30 days’ notice from your scheduled arrival, your deposit will be refunded less a 10% cancellation fee calculated on the total charges. Under 30 days’ notice, you are responsible for all charges on any partial or full cancellation, unless we are able to re-book in which case you will receive a refund based on the amount of the new booking.
Transfers – You are welcome to transfer your reservation to a friend or family member in the event of a change in plans.
COVID – 19 Cancellation Policy Change: Our standard cancellation policy of 30 days notice continues to apply unless guests have answered “yes” to any of our Covid-19 related questions prior to their stay. We will work with guests on a situation by situation basis to either reschedule their stay or provide an appropriate refund.
Tent or RV camping is only available when a group has rented both the Cabin and the Yurt. Please contact us directly to make arrangements for campers. No deposit is required at time of booking. Payment is required upon arrival. Campers do not receive breakfast.
Check-in time is flexible between 3-9pm, however we suggest you arrive before sundown as it can be difficult to find our place for the first time in the dark. (In the winter, this can be as early as 4pm; in the summer, as late as 10pm.) We ask that you advise us in advance of your planned arrival time so we can ensure the cabin is ready and we’re here in the event you need assistance on arrival.
Check-out time is 11 am, but you are welcome to store your luggage with us if you wish to stay longer to enjoy your last day.
We welcome quiet, well trained, and well mannered pet dogs and service dogs on the property. Please see restrictions below:
Mowat Cabin is pet-free to accommodate other guests with allergies; if cabin guests’ wish to have dogs on the property they can do so but they are not allowed in the cabin at any time and must be kennelled outside overnight.
Yogi’s Yurt – Dogs are welcome to stay in the yurt for a fee ($20/night/pet) but are not to be left alone in the Yurt unless they are kennelled.
* We ask that owners please notify us in advance that they will be bringing a dog
* We will consider 2 dogs on a case by case basis.
* Dogs are not to be on the beds, blankets, towels or furniture at anytime
* Owners shall provide their own kennel and/or bed
* Owners must be respectful of other guests on the property and ensure their dog does not make anyone else on the property uncomfortable
* Owners are responsible for all damage done by their pet(s)
Dietary restrictions will be accommodated with a week’s prior notice.
Family-friendly – children of all ages are more than welcome.
Smoking or vaping – only permitted outdoors and at a safe distance from the Cabin and Yurt. Be respectful and extremely cautious with the disposal of your ashes and butts, as we are in an area that is highly susceptible to forest fires. A fee of $150 will be charged for a violation of this policy.
Fires – please check with us before having a fire as there are seasonal bans (typically in July and August) which are subject to hefty fines.
