Is Airydale pet friendly?
Mostly! All of our sites are pet friendly, with the exception of the Dome.
We do request that dogs remain on a leash at all times, that their droppings are cleaned up and disposed of, and that they are never left alone in the tent. We also request a pet fee (add when booking).
How about service dogs?
Service dogs, those that have been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability, are allowed to accompany guests. We don't charge a fee for service dogs, but it is helpful if you note on your reservation that you'll be bringing a service dog. Should the service dog cause damage to an accommodation, we may charge the same fee for damages as charged to other guests.
Will there be bugs or wildlife?
We work really hard to keep bugs out of the sites and away from the general area, but it's important to remember that we are invading their home as much as they invade ours! It's a good idea to bring bug spray along. We're also more than willing to drop by your site during your stay if you happen to see insects inside.
As far as wildlife, we have a plethora of little woodland creatures like rabbits, squirrels, and chipmunks, as well as some critters that like to venture out at night, like opossums and racoons. While these little critters aren't necessarily harmful, they love cleaning up food scraps! So it's important to keep your food in ice chests or other sealed containers and trash / food scraps in the trash cans away from sites.
Every couple years we see a bear, but they really don't like people and are easily scared away
What time is Check-out and Check-in?
We invite guests to arrive anytime after 4 PM. Check-out is 11 AM. Early check-in is available for an additional $50.
Do you provide firewood?
Yes! All of our sites have their own private fire ring for campfires. We have firewood available on site, as well and kindling and other materials to start the campfire. We don't charge a set fee for firewood but welcome monetary donations.
What is you Cancellation Policy?
For cancellations made more than two weeks (14 days) in advance of your reservation date, Airydale Retreat will issue a full refund (less $25 cancellation fee per site). No refunds will be issued for cancellations made two weeks (14 days) or less from check-in (unless you add our Flexible Cancellation Add-on [details below]). Remaining balance will be charged upon cancellation.
Flexible Cancellation Add-on: Our version of Travel Insurance that relaxes our no refund policy for cancellations made within 14 days of check-in. If something comes up and you need to cancel within 14 days of your reservation, this add-on will allow you to receive a full refund (less the Flexible Cancellation Add-on and Processing Fee).
What is the bathroom situation?
All of our sites have their own private bathhouse located nearby with a flushing toilet and sink! Each site also has a private outdoor shower with heated water.
Is there cell phone service or WiFi?
Most cell phone carriers have decent coverage in our area, with the exception of T-Mobile (though the recent addition of a nearby tower may have boosted T-Mobile service).
We currently do not have WiFi on site, but may be adding it in the future.
What cooking supplies are available?
Each glamping tent has a propane camp stove (with propane), cast iron skillet and dutch oven, basic cooking utensils, dish soap and pan for washing dishes, and ice chest (ice available at local stores).
The Domes come with a furnished kitchenette with an induction burner, sink, mini fridge, pots, pans, utensils, tableware, etc.
Can we park our boat at Airydale?
Unfortunately we are not able to offer boat parking or storage at Airydale Retreat.
