About the Lodge: The lodge is located 'off the electrical grid', exactly what does that mean for us as renters? The lodge makes it's own electricity via solar panels, and wind turbines. For the most part, these two avenues create enough electricity to run the lodge. However, during lengthy periods of overcast days and low wind times, the automatic propane generator would kick in to replenish power reserves. You will probably never know that this happened. You will have non interrupted electrical supply just like any other house. The Power Source is located in the rear of the lodge away from main outdoor areas.
We have professional property managers who live close by in our neighboring town Hartsel. They are quite efficient and can answer all your questions, and will take care of any needs that may arise in a timely manner.
The lodge has provided you with two animal proof outside garbage containers.
Frequently Asked Questions: **What type of pet facility do you have? Located in the rear of the lodge is a huge dog kennel, suitable for larger dogs.
