Mobile Sleeping Unit

No mobile sleeping units are permitted at the cabins/cottages for additional housing. This includes the erection of tents.


We do not permit smoking inside any of our properties. Smoking is permitted on the decks and grounds. Please extinguish all cigarettes in ashtrays and dispose of them properly to prevent a fire hazard and keep the grounds well maintained. Guests that do not abide by this will be charged $100 for the removal of the smell of smoke and will be responsible for any other damage/clean-up costs associated from the result of disregarding this policy.

No use of marijuana or illegal substances permitted anywhere on the premises. 

Hot Tubs

For the safety and enjoyment of our guests, your hot tub will be cleaned between reservations. For arriving guests, this might necessitate a delay in using the hot tub immediately upon arrival, due to the water temperature. We apologize for this inconvenience, but your safety is important. To keep your hot tub as clean as when you arrived, avoid products like hair spray, hair mousse, styling gels, deodorants, suntan lotions, excess sweat, skin creams of any sort or excess soap. Any of these products will seriously cloud up your water and clog the filter. Although inconvenient, try to shower before going into the hot tub. Maintenance will change the filter, add water & chemicals as needed in between guests.

If you are staying more than 7 days and the hot tub needs attention, please let us know.  The water will not be changed out completely during your stay unless deemed necessary by maintenance.  No more than 4 guests at a time in the hot tubs unless you are in the Birmingham, which holds 6 at a time.  It is IMPERATIVE the water stays over the jets. If the water level decreases below the jets, please call and report this as soon as possible for maintenance to take care of the situation.  Jets are set to automatically circulate the water on a timer.

There is a ‘bar’ over the tub – this is a ‘cover lift’. Fold the cover over the bar & then push to the back of the hot tub to appropriately lift off the cover. No drinking or eating in the hot tub. No glass by the hot tub area. Turn off lights when exiting the hot tub and replace the cover when not in use.  No sitting on the hot tub lid. Children’s toys are prohibited in the tubs.


Wood is provided for our guests.  There are wagons available to carry larger loads of wood as well as satchels in each cabin to hand carry a smaller amount.  Please use EXTREME CAUTION when having a fire.  If you start a fire and it gets out of control, you will be held personally and financially responsible for any damages caused.  Never leave a fire unattended.

There are wood burning fireplaces in each cabin other than the Birmingham (propane) and the Leesville Lakehouse (electric).  Fireplaces are used for ambiance only; there is propane heat in all of the cabins.  Please do NOT clean out ashes in order to protect cabins from hot coals.  This will be done for you as needed and properly disposed of once coals have cooled.  Fireplace doors and screens are to be used at all times. 

There are cans of spray to eliminate flames at each grilling station as well as fire extinguishers inside the cabins.  Utilize the ash buckets for charcoal only – DO NOT THROW CHARCOAL INTO THE WOODS. 


All cabins are equipped with mattress/box spring encasements, mattress covers, sheets, bedspreads and throw blankets.  Extra linens are provided for pull out couches, futons, and spare sheets should they get soiled during your stay.  If there are any ‘stains’ (blood, fruit juice, drinks, urine, etc.) that cannot be removed after laundered, you will be charged for a replacement of the item to equal - $60 for a King, $50 for a Queen, $40 for a Twin.

You will be held responsible for furniture tears, stains, breaks, or any damage to property during your stay to include replacing the item and the cost of labor to perform the work.  You will also bear the financial responsibility to replace anything lost or stolen. WE WILL ATTEMPT TO TAKE CARE OF THESE SITUATIONS AS COST EFFECTIVE TO YOU AS POSSBILE.

Quiet Time

Please be considerate of your neighbors and observe a 10:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m. quiet time.  We want our guests to have a good time, but many come to relax and enjoy getting away from the noise.  Please be respectful of others.


No hunting is allowed on the property.  No processing of animals inside cabins.  Deer can be hung from surrounding trees, but all carcasses are to be properly removed and disposed of by guest; they are not to be left for housekeeping to handle. 

We have professional pest extermination of our cabins, but they are not bug proof. Please remember you are in the woods, and we have invaded the woodland creatures’ habitat, so you may see an occasional visitor.

Pet Policy

Our pet policy is as follows:

  • Pets are not permitted in the Huntington and Dogwood cabins
  • Well-mannered and housebroken dogs or cats of 80 lbs. or less are welcome
  • The Maximum number of pets per cabin is two (2)
  • Pet fee is $100 per cabin. This fee DOES NOT include picking up your dog’s droppings. This Fee DOES NOT include excessive hair on couch, blankets, spreads, or sheets. An additional fee of $50 for picking up any droppings and $100 for the clean up of any excessive hair will be charged if you neglect to do so.
  • If your pet is a ‘couch dweller’, we ask you to please bring towels or sheets with you to cover any couches or beds. We also highly suggest to remove bedspreads prior to covering – these spreads can get “toe nail pulls” that will result in a fee for replacing the item as mentioned above.

  • The Salt Fork Lake is right at the base of our road, ¾ mile from your cabin!  If you prefer a fenced in area, the Park offers a ‘Dog Park’ at the beach area.
