Happy New Year, 2018
Bitter cold has been the norm for the past week. Rarely have we seen a high above zero and our lows, air temp lows, have been in the negative 30’s way too often. Bright sunshine looks great from indoors but it’s hard to spend much time outside. Keep on thinking warm, positive thoughts and it will soon be spring.
With the New Year, there is some business to take care of. Reservations for the coming summer season right now are about 25% ahead of where they were this time last year. Several weeks are filled already. For guests who have previously booked their cabin, letters went in the mail this past Friday requesting confirmation of those reservations. Deposits, for those who have not already made them, are due by January 15. We do understand that families plans change and some who pre-registered will not be able to keep their reservations. We ask that you let us know about your change of plans ASAP so that we can make the cabin available to others. Thanks for your help with that.
For those who are new to Pine Ridge Resort or who have not yet made their summer plans, you can always check our “Availability” chart to see which cabins are open. There is a link to the “Availability” chart below. We hope you’ll look through our web site to see all that we offer. There are pages about the resort, our lakes and fishing, our cabins and the beautiful Longville area. Please feel free to call if you have any questions.
A note on rates. We have three rate periods, our Spring period, the summer peak period and our Fall rates. Spring and Fall rates are the same and are usually about 30% lower than the peak summer rates. During the Spring and Fall rate periods, we accept any reservation of two days or longer. Book for five days and get the next two free. Daily and weekly rates are posted on our “Rates” page and also on each individual cabin page.
Our summer rate period is primarily based on full week rentals from Saturday to Saturday. However, we have always offered an shorter stay to accommodate those who can’t get away for a full week. This is our Mini-Week program and we offer three of four night stays as long as you arrive or depart on a Saturday. So you can arrive on a Saturday and depart on a Tuesday or Wednesday, or arrive on a Tuesday or Wednesday and depart on Saturday. Or you can do a full week from Wednesday to Wednesday. We try to be flexible.
What ever schedule you pick, you can place your reservation on line or by giving us a call. And feel free to call if you have any questions. So browse through the web site to see what we have to offer. Thanks for your interest. We’re looking forward to meeting you. See you at the lake
There aren’t many of our guests who get up to watch the sun rise but Jamie Daby, here with his family, was up with his iPad Air one day the week of June 14 -20. He took a time lapse video of the event and sent me a link. Check it out. That’s Grandpa Wipplinger getting his boat ready for an early morning outing in the lower right hand corner.
