Our lodge is run as a cooperative effort. On bus trip weekends, each person is assigned a task for the weekend. On non-bus trip stays, cooking and cleaning, as well as following posted opening and closing procedures, is your responsibility. The lodge is a smoke-free house, but there are receptacles in the driveway for smokers. The lodge is also well-equipped for safety, with a monitored fire alarm system, annual fire extinguisher inspections, chimney cleaning, and two sets of exit stairs from the second floor. Please comply with all posted safety rules, and if you’re not sure how something works, ask. Our lodge is our vacation home and we are all "owners", please treat it like you would treat your own home.
