Elk Lodge is the main building at our retreat center and it is similar to a hotel-style building in that there are offices, guest rooms, and guest areas to hang-out. The offices are separated from the guest space by a sliding barn door. When guests are staying in the lodge, our office staff enter through the Staff-Only entrance and the sliding barn door is kept closed and locked, for your privacy. The guest rooms and guest common areas (kitchen, living room, dining room, and common room) are solely for your group to use during your stay.
There are 2 detached staff apartments upstairs. Both apartments have exterior exits so our staff members who live in those apartments will not enter the guest areas during the your stay. We provide a key for every bedroom if you wish to keep your personal belongings locked in your room during your stay. We have many returning family reunions and groups, representing thousands of guests that stay in Elk Lodge every year, and we have never had any issues. Please reach out to us with any questions regarding this. Thank you!
