The Fine Print: Rates and Policies

About our Accommodations

All spaces at The Dunes –– from our guest rooms to our cottage suites and every one and two bedroom cottage in between –– are maintained to the highest degree for your comfort and pleasure. That being said, we are a traditional cottage resort with lots of personality and history, and this means that our rooms and buildings aren’t uniform. The special quirks and different aspects of each of our accommodations is another reason our guests cherish us. However, it’s important that you know exactly what you’re getting as a prospective guest. If you have a question about what does or does not come with your cottage, guest room, or suite, please do not hesitate to ask. We’re happy to talk about our resort down to the very last detail.
