Pets must be pre approved. Guest bringing pets mus bring with them their own blankets, comfortors and furniture coverings. Beginning in winter 23-24 ice season, we will no longer be able to accomidate pets during the ice fishing season. We hope you understand, but with more frequent cabin turn overs the extra amount of cleaning time involved with winter adding our furry friends makes it more difficult to get the cabins ready for the next guest. Pets must be leashed at all times; never left unattended, and must be cleaned up after. Owners are financially responsible for any/all damages caused by their pet(s).  Due to the extra cleaning required in the cabin(s), the Pet Fee will NOT be waived.
