Hi there! We do have WiFi. We only ask for a minimal charge of $3 to $24 depending on how many devices you'd like to connect and how many days. We find that most of our guest consider this reasonable! If you all are willing to share space, but not beds, our Chilhowee Cabin would work great! We offer each room in our cabins separately. Chilhowee offers 2 separate accommodations, each would work for your group!
