FAQ / Cabin Rules: Check-in 4:00 PM Check-out 11:00 AM Because of the remote nature of the cabin, internet is provided by a satellite provider. Because of this, video streaming is not possible without severely impacting the data cap for the month. If you stream video, the internet will most likely be cut off during your stay. PLEASE NOTE: The optional firewood charge of $12/night is for firewood for the outdoor fire pit. (The indoor fireplace at this property is gas.) If you don't think you will use the firewood or would like to bring your own, please let us know! We are more than happy to refund that to you. Also please note: No parties, events, or gatherings of guests that are not included in the reservation are allowed at Fish Trap. The base rate includes 4 people. Additional guests are extra, $45 per person per night - please read the itemized charges carefully and make sure to make your reservation for the correct number of guests that will be staying. Thank you! Pet Fee- $65 per dog ( max 2 dogs) - No Cats Please take your trash with you. The River Outfitters has a dumb site for our guest to use on their way out. ( we dont have a scheduled trash service ) The house manager can take them for a tip $5 per bag.More

Great house for a couples getaway or for folks who want to chill. Great fishing spot with the stream right in front of the house! My son caught 2 fish and my friend caught 5! The house is spacious, neat and relaxing. Highly recommended!
