Reservations including the nights of Friday, June 5, 2020, and Saturday, June 6, 2020, will require a three (3) night minimum stay, and therefore a room reservation needs to include either Thursday night June 4, 2020, or Sunday night June 7, 2020.

For all accepted requests, a confirmation will be finalized upon receipt of a deposit in the amount of one night’s room and tax (11.7%). The deposit will need to be received by August 22, 2019, by credit card or the room(s) will be released and reassigned.
