I would call their office and ask questions. It would be a fun stay. I don't know how long the wait list is for cottages. When I go there this week, I will try to find out more info.

Dogs are limited to paved trails only, so it's somewhat limited. There is a long paved trail atop the bluff-- we walked it at Reef Point a ways. Nice views, punctuated by the occasional poop bag dispenser/garbage can, but... More
