Deposit and Cancellation Policy
We do require a 50% deposit at the time of booking, confirmation is rendered by email or telephone. Due to our small size and the seasonal nature of our business cancellations affect us significantly. In the unfortunate event you must cancel your reservation before the 60 days prior to your arrival date there will be a 20% transaction fee deducted from your reservation amount. If you need to cancel within 60 days of your scheduled arrival, the total dollar amount of your reservation is non-refundable, but can be used on a future date. Should it be necessary for you to depart earlier or arrive later than your confirmed dates, you will be responsible for the original nights of your intended stay. No shows-a charge equivalent to the entire reservation will apply. Travel Insurance is the best option to cover life’s unexpected occurrences. Pines of Kabetogama is dedicated to ensuring you have a memorable vacation experience. We will honor your wishes whenever possible; nonetheless, we do reserve to transfer your reservation to another cabin or RV campsite.
