Yes, our location is a little remote. Yes, some of you will be sleeping in the woods. Still, this is not a thoroughly rugged affair– there will be indoor restrooms, hot tubs, even a dry sauna. Check out the lists below for our two cents on what to bring and what to leave at home.
Note about food: We suggest bringing or stopping on your way in for Friday dinner and Saturday breakfast and lunch. Each lodging has a nice kitchen and fridge, and the nearest grocery is 25 minutes’ drive. Friday night fare will be small wood-fired pizzas, s’mores, and drinks, and we’ll provide a few small snacks in the cabins for Saturday morning, but we want to be sure that you are prepared!
