Yes, WiFi is available on the property. Please remember you are visiting an island, 5-miles off the mainland. From time to time, outages outside of our control do occur for which we cannot be responsible for. Remember, you are on vacation. Time to unplug!
Cell service is spotty on the Island to say the least. From our experience, major carriers including Verizon and US Cellular work the best, while AT&T is non-existent. CellCom is used by most locals. Remember, you are on vacation. Time to unplug!
While we enjoy our pets too and understand why you might want to include them on your vacation, for the health, safety, and enjoyment of all our guests, we do not allow pets in the cabins, or on the property grounds. Please do not bring your pet and plan to leave them in your car. That is not fair to the pet, or other guests. We define “pet” as a dog, cat, bird, or exotic animal.
No, the cabins are NOT equipped with televisions or DVD players. Our rationale behind this is we want you to be so tired from exploring all the wonderful places, shops and restaurants on our Island, that you come back to your cabin and fall asleep once your head hits the pillow. Remember, you're on vacation. Time to unplug!
For those that may not bring a car, or are coming via bicycle, we can arrange to pick you up at the ferry dock. Please make sure to contact us ahead of time, and also when you board the ferry, so we can meet you at the dock.
Yes, the electric can go down. Again, please remember you are visiting an island, 5-miles off the mainland. From time to time the electric does go out, most often due to a storm or winds, for which we cannot control. The Washington Island Electric Cooperative has a diligent crew that works hard to minimize any outages we may experience. They get us back up and running as quickly as they can.
Sheets, blankets, pillows, and bath towels are provided, as well as soap, shampoo, and conditioner. If you have your own special pillow or brand of toiletries, we suggest you bring those for your stay.
We will NOT be entering your cabin on a daily basis to change sheets, make the bed, clean, or exchange towels. Based on your length of stay, your cabin will be stocked with the appropriate amount of towels. If staying five (5) or more days, we will coordinate a midweek sheet and towel exchange at check-in.
The maximum occupancy in any cabin is TWO (2) persons. Each cabin has one queen bed. Cabins do NOT have pull-out couches. We ask that you refrain from bringing inflatable beds, air mattresses, or sleeping bags to accommodate more than two persons.
If you arrive with more than two people in your party, we will ask you to reserve another cabin (subject to availability).
