Pro Tips:

  • Set up your ReserveAmerica.com account and become familiar with the reservation site well in advance of the 1st of the month.
  • The more flexible you can be with dates and length of stay, the better your chances. Select as much date flexibility as possible, i.e. “Flexible for next four weeks”, and select “1” as your length of stay when you’re checking online and for availability notifications to ensure that you’re notified of all availability.
  • In addition to registering, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with cottage descriptions, rental policies, reservation procedures, rules and regulations, in advance.
  • During 1st of the month reservation sales, be sure to check additional dates in the first week of the month following the month on sale. Sometimes additional days in the following month become available.
  • ADA cottages are for disabled guests only and a disability placard or license plate issued a DMV or a similar agency of another state will be required on check-in.
