What dates are available?
We are available from the beginning of September until the end of May.
How many people can you accommodate?
We can sleep up to 180 guests in a mixture of private and communal accommodations.
Are bedding and towels included?
No, we do not supply linens, pillows, blankets, or towels. Most groups elect to bring their own. We recommend bringing a fitted sheet and a sleeping bag or blanket, at least one bath towel and a pillow. Linen rentals can be pre-arranged. We offer maid service upon request.
What is the food like? Can we have a special menu or meal?
Our food is healthy and generous and is served buffet or family-style in most cases. There is always a vegetarian option at each meal. We are happy to help design a custom menu to meet your specific needs, be it to meet a dietary concern or a special party or event. We capably accommodate vegetarian-only groups, groups that request specific ethnic foods, or groups that elect a very upscale menu for a party. We enjoy doing cookouts, barbecues, picnics, campfires, and other creative food experiences in fun venues.
Will my group have exclusive use of the property or will other groups share the property with us?
Exclusivity depends of the size and nature of your group, and the dates you elect. If your group is large enough to fill many of our bed spaces then you have the property to yourselves. If you choose dates when there are no other groups scheduled you might then have sole use of the property, but in this case we do not guarantee exclusive use. Smaller groups that require exclusivity may be accommodated but will incur an additional fee to guarantee this. Weddings or other such large parties are presumed to require “the run of the place.”
What is involved if we would like to do an organized activity?
Our staff is capable to either run or supervise your group’s activity depending on your choice. Many of the activities you may elect to do on your own and we just provide the facilities and equipment as needed. As with most details, we are happy to accommodate based on your needs and wants.
Can you provide supervision for children?
Yes, but as with all details advanced notice is greatly appreciated so we can provide adequate staff.
Where is the nearest medical facility?
Lake Wales Medical Center is located 20 minutes away, in Lake Wales.
Are pets permitted?
In certain cases pets might be permitted, depending on your group. Please contact us to inquire.
Is your facility handicap-accessible?
Our whole property is designed to be handicap-accessible including appropriate pathways, ramps, etc. Moreover, there are 6 large cabins that are handicap-ready, including handicap-accessible showers and restrooms.
